St. Louis I & II '94

The 1994 bootleg section has been updated with both of the St. Louis shows, 3/14/1994 and 3/15/1994. Both shows are available in both FLAC and MP3 formats. Setlist and show notes provided by Two Feet Thick are below. Enjoy the music!!
support act: The Frogs and Grant Lee Buffalo
set: Release, Go, Animal, Dissident, Even Flow, Why Go, Jeremy, improv, Glorified G, Daughter/(Beginning to See the Light)/(WMA), Blood, jam, Breath, State of Love and Trust, Black, Alive
enc: Not For You, Rearviewmirror, Elderly Woman, Porch
notes: Ed joins The Frogs during their set for 'I Only Play for Money.' The improv is sung by Ed with very quiet music being played by the band, and is tagged with lyrics from The Beatles' somewhat obscure single, 'You Know My Name.' At one point, Ed's legs become so wrapped up in the mic cord that Jeff and Stone have to rescue him. Ed introduces 'Blood' as, "Spelled backwards, this song is doolb." The jam following 'Blood' is instrumental and 'Breath' is very different, ending with a cool jam. During 'Porch,' Ed marks up the band members' faces with a burnt cork.
support act: The Frogs
set: Why Go, Deep, Animal, Once, Rats, Blood, Glorified G, Daughter/(The Real Me), Alive, Go, Even Flow, Spin the Black Circle, Porch/Beginning to See the Light, Corduroy, Rearviewmirror, Black, Leash/Improv, I'm One, Baba O'Riley
notes: Ed joins The Frogs during their set: they start 'Jeremy' and Ed is lowered by a rope or cable onto the stage like he's flying, wearing the gold bat wings. He picks up a microphone and joins in. He also contributes to 'I Only Play for Money' and one other song, plus 'I'm One' (just Ed and Dennis).Lively, fun performance with Ed very animated and venturing to the edge of the stage to touch the audience as early as the second song. He does an airplane spin with one of the fans. 'Go' is dedicated to Kurt Cobain and 'Corduroy' is premiered. After assisting Dave on drums during 'Porch,' Ed gives one of the band's tall, white candles to the crowd, saying he wants to see how far back it will make it. To his enjoyment, the candle is passed to the back of the audience successfully while the band plays a snippet of the Velvet Underground's 'Beginning to See the Light.' Three Who songs are played tonight ('The Real Me', 'I'm One' and 'Baba O'Riley'). Cool show in a beautiful venue, which Ed acknowledges twice.
