Even though Fugazi hit the state of Oregon some 8 times between 1990 - 1999, this recording captures their one and only performance in the city of Springfield, Oregon, which also happens to be the last time the band played this particular venue, city and state.

The overall sound quality of this recording is arguably quite good, the instrumentation fairly well balanced, although the audience can only be heard in the background and it takes until well into Reclamation for the vocals to settle in the mix, as Ian bellows “Return, return, return!” (both Ian and Guy being virtually inaudible before).

Presented here are 24 songs total, drawn from the debut 7 Songs EP (1), Margin Walker EP (2), Repeater (5), Steady Diet (2), In on the Kill Taker (3), Red Medicine (3), End Hits album (7) and Furniture EP (1) respectively.

Note the very first live rendering of Last Chance for a Slow Dance on this leg of the 1999 tour. Sieve-Fisted Find lights the show up for me personally. Promises following suit is featured rather unusually early in the set list, while Blueprint - which starts off remarkable jumbled - surprisingly closes out the show.

Oh, I made it to this one so I had to get it. :-) I'm a live recording snob so was worried about the 'Good' rating since it's one notch higher than the 'poor' rating. Here's the deal: It's a soundboard recording so it's the usual double edged sword of being both super clear, but also a bit sterile. This has nothing to do with the rating tho. It's that the vocals do not come into the mix until the end of Reclamation. Ouch! Am I griping? hell no! And I'm happy to pay the suggested price. :-) Maybe if your collecting shows for a reason other than having been to this show, consider another. If you were there then you have to get it.

Incredible show. The beer garden was a chicken wire cage. There was a tiny little hard core chick who was flying through the pit. One of the top ten nights of my entire life.

Thanks Fugazi!
