In Episode 64 I am joined by Scott Bernstein of @yemblog and @jambase as he recalls this awesome show.

The bonus track is the encore and debut of “Sabotage”.
Episode 63 kicks off the Summer 98 tour with the outstanding “The Way I Feel” soundcheck jam. This baby brings the dance. Also included is the “Horn->Jam” and the bonkers “Tweezer->California Love->Tweezer->Free”. Let’s get down! The intro is from the show opening “Wolfman’s Brother”
The lone soundcheck from Europe 1998 is from the first night of Barcelona. If you like laid back grooves this episode is for you. The soundcheck is a 16 minute jam that is centered around “Meat”. Grooving to the max with incredible sound quality. The intro is from the “Ghost” Jam and our bonus track is a “Bathtub Gin” that sounds like a “Ghost” jam. Hit play and groove.
