An Overview of the Show:
The Valentine's Day show stood out for several reasons. The crowd was great - Dave complimented us on being nice and quiet. The guys were really into the show: amazing jams and a lot of joking by both Dave and Tim. TimmySpeak consisted of guitar effects, and I've never seen both of them laugh out soud so much. Even though the setlist was kinda repetitive from the nights before, the versions were spectacular. Saturday, I heard Wild Horses in Columbia at soundcheck; I knew it was due, and they did a beautiful rendition of it, with Dave on 12 string. In response to someone's "Song that Jane Likes!", Dave says, "she likes 'em all." The encore was dedicated to his sweetheart, who was in the house, and to all the couples: the tour's first Lover Lay Down. Beautiful. This show was solid all over. Timmy's second solo got a standing ovation: timmy used the repeating pedal effect and left the stage, with his guitar still filling the auditorium. it was insane. Dave talked a lot, again, but with few stories to speak of. A great show and a nice way to end one of the greatest weekends of my life: following Timmy and Dave.

Heres one from the '97 tour with Bela Fleck playing along. The Bela stuff on here is fantastic!!! Sound is very weak here, some distortion elimination was used and background sounds weird. Stick with the '98 shows unless your a real collector
