Barney the Dinosaur sits in on bass during Iko Iko

From what I remember, this was a crappy show...true? I never heard a tape.

I have the 1st set on tape and was there, I've seen better shows but also have seen a lot worse.


Wave To The Wind and Days Between are outstanding, but apart from that there's nothing worth mentioning. Not a bad show either.
-Andy Black

Wave to the Wind is the worst song written in the history of human kind. It's hard to believe that this would ever pass a sound check or practice session...truly embarassing.
-Anonymous (07/03/2008)

Don't forget Liberty...a regular Bobby Ratdog tune now for some odd reason.

My 25th birthday show, yeah to much new stuff for my taste. Could you imagine that next album after Built to Last if it ever came out? Pretty emabrrassing IMHO.
-Anonymous (03/19/2009)

blah blah blah haters, every year is not 1990
-steve (08/27/2012)

Wave to the Wind is very bad, and I too am surprised it would pass muster...but worse than We Built This City? Maybe.

At this point I was on hiatus waiting for them to get better...unfortunately that never happened.

Lol, it's pathetic to see so many people hate on tunes the way the previous commenters have. So many bad vibes being brought in because of self absorbed non-sense. If you don't like a tune then that's your problem. clearly the boys disagreed with you. I admit, the 90's tunes have a different feel to em, but to say that the album would have been embarrassing is ignorantly naive. Weather you like a tune or not, disrespecting the memory of any artist and bringin bad vibes on everyone who enjoys the work you don't just makes you seem like a condescending fool. Unless thats what you were going for, in which case, success.

Seriously, its not hating it is just unfortunate they were on the downside. it happens to us all. Had there been a new album we would have had.

I don't think the boys would put Picasso Moon on back to back studio matter how much they may have liked it.

All i'm saying is that when the boys weren't completely shot, most of there 90's were quite beautiful. especially so many roads and days between. I know everyones hears somethin different, i just thought that was a little drastic to say embarrassing. But, again, everyone hears somethin different.

I've also found liberty to be a good bouncy tune, when it closed set 1. Never liked as an encore. As for the other tunes, i wouldn't say they are favorites, but i've enjoyed them.

I think that album would've been really nice anonymous. I personally wish something would've came out of the studio with Vince. And all 8 of the songs you listed that aren't on an album would make up a good record. Don't forget to add if the shoe fits and samba. Maybe some other covers
-Quadlibet (09/21/2016)

Interesting conversation above about what the album after Built to last would have sounded like. For anyone who actually wants to know, here's a link to what they had recorded of it before Jerry died. And For those who think it'd be an embarrassing album, please... please give it a chance. It's not the greatest when put up against American Beauty or In the Dark, especially considering it's not mixed or mastered as a commercially released album would be, but damn... i really wish it had been finished. You can hear so much potential. If only they had the chance to clean it up.
-Listen before you judge (04/01/2022)

So was it Phil in a Barney costume or some other guy?
-Amy Ryan (04/01/2022)

Phil as Barney for Iko, the Rain encore and how it was totally pouring when we were outside the Coli are how I remember this one.
