"Saying No" in Den Haag!!!

The 1992 bootleg section has been updated with the 03/02/92 show in Den Haag, Holland! This is one of those great early bootlegs that circulated through head shops and corner record stores for $30 to $40 back in the day. It's been a while but I used to listen to this boot all the time. Best part I can remember is "I've Got A Feeling", it's just an awesome jam and one of many highlights on this one. The sound of this recording is also very good which is always a plus. As usual this show is available in both FLAC and MP3 formats. Hope you enjoy the show!

Here's some vid footage of "I've Got A Feeling":

03/02/92 - Paard, Den Haag, Holland [88m]
attendance: 500
set: Oceans, Even Flow, Why Go, Jeremy, Deep, Alive, Black, Saying No/Suggestion, Alone, Once, Porch
enc: Garden, Leash, I’ve Got A Feeling
notes: Ed has more words for stage divers: “Just a couple of words. In my whole life, I never wanted to be a policeman or anything of authority. But in fact, all my life I’ve been in a crowd like this, and whenever I was back there and people throw up onto the stage and jumped back off it always looked so cool, but when you are up here, see all these peoples’ heads bein’ smashed in by boots and stuff, it’s really fuckin’ ridiculous. Prior to ‘Black’ Ed notes, “You know, we canceled tomorrow night’s show just because I knew I would sing with everything I got tonight … a very good decision I think.” ‘Suggestion’ is an extremely rousing version, renamed ‘Saying No in Den Haag’ by Ed. Stone and Mike sing an ear splitting a capella version of Queen’s ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ before ‘Porch.’ Ed’s brother, Jason, jams with the band during a long, lively version of ‘I’ve Got a Feeling’ including parts of ‘Hunger Strike,’ ‘Say Hello 2 Heaven’ and ‘Jane Says’ (by Jane’s Addiction). Excellent show.
