|1996-07-03||Taste||Trento, Italy||11:36||With Carlos Santana and Karl Perazzo. Exteded jam with Trey and Carlos taking turns on lead guitar. -> to "Llama."|
|1996-07-03||Llama||Trento, Italy||7:59||Carlos Santana on guitar and Karl Perazzo on percussion. -> in from "Taste." Version has a cool little percussive breakdown jam about midway through before returning to "Llama" proper.|
|1997-02-21||DwD||Florence, Italy||16:05||Nice melodic departure from the standard that grows increasingly funky as it progresses. Great Page B-3 action.|
|1997-02-21||Wilson||Florence, Italy||4:38||The heaviest of all the Heavy Metal style Wilsons comes bursting -> out of a gnarly unfinished "Antelope" jam with a transformed thrashing arrangement and properly gutural vocals from Trey.|
|1997-02-22||CDT||Rome, Italy||8:59||Somewhat unusual jamming with great Mike and Trey teamwork.|
|1997-02-23||Fluffhead||Cortemaggiore, Italy||15:33||A great version which bristles with energy. Despite some minor wobbles in The Chase and Who Do? We Do!, Page offers some great funky keyboard action in Clod, while Mike is noticeably strong. Rounding the final curve, Fish and Trey lead a rocking and powerful Arrival, underscoring a top notch performance.|
|1997-02-23||Suzy||Cortemaggiore, Italy||8:24||"Suzy" gets some funk!|
|1997-02-23||Maze||Cortemaggiore, Italy||12:40||Solid Page with some dissonant chords. In Trey's section, there are a couple of false peaks which add to the tension.|
|1997-02-23||Mike's||Cortemaggiore, Italy||14:57||The 1st jam of the first '97 "Mike's" is actually less funk-infused than many Fall '96 versions, and is straightforward but fairly intense. The serene and soothing 2nd jam portends the ambient sounds that would emerge in '98 and '99, and has a melodic feel akin to "Blue Bayou."|
|1997-07-05||Twist||Como, Italy||13:49||The jam starts to break from the standard around 5:45 and by 7:25 has morphed into a good funky groove from which a jam on Deee Lite's "Groove Is In The Heart" emerges. Settles and > to "Piper."|
|1997-07-05||GTBT||Como, Italy||9:32||Groovy version with a "Walk This Way" flavor and extended Trey shredding on the backend.|
|1997-07-05||Coil||Como, Italy||9:60||Page shines throughout this single-set, free, outdoor gig, so it arrives as a bit of a surprise that it's Trey who steals the show during the course of this patient and serene encore. To be sure, Page's play is confident and assured, but Trey's late (7:00) play is as unusual as it is welcome, his tone wavy and his phrasing pushing, but not quite breaking, the bounds of the song proper. Excellent version.|
|1997-07-06||Stash||Desenzano, Italy||16:58||Another version where the jam has a funk section (9:40 - about 14:30) which is quite good and different.|
|1997-07-06||SOAMule||Desenzano, Italy||11:13||Page > vocal/guitar by Trey, with Mike and Fish joining in, and then Page in a funky jam > klezmer > conclusion.|
|1997-07-06||Free||Desenzano, Italy||10:30||Slow tempo, very funky jam with Trey taking the lead.|
|1997-07-06||YEM||Desenzano, Italy||25:29||Long jam. No B&D, no VJ, segues into "Waste."|
