1996 Section Added

Added a new page to the site today for some 1996 bootlegs! The first shows added to this section include the 9/16 Seattle show at Key Arena, the 9/22 show in Toledo, OH and the 11/03 show in Berlin Germany! The Toledo show I had never heard before but it's a very solid performance. The Seattle show I've not had a chance to listen to yet but from what I understand there were several technical difficulties throughout the performance (with the band, not the recording).

The Berlin show is considered a classic among many in the PJ community. It opens with an amazing performance of "Long Road" and just leads to a great performance. The sound quality is also very good since it was broadcast on the radio! Personally, I'm really enjoying the 1996 shows. "No Code" is my favorite album and these shows are filled many gems from that masterpiece!!
