|1996-07-12||Jam||Amsterdam, Netherlands||0:47||An interactive jam in which the band plays chords yelled out by the audience to a ska groove.|
|1997-02-17||DwD||Amsterdam, Netherlands||18:25||Inspiring, upbeat jam develops some filthy, funky legs before -> to the astounding debut of "Carini," which -> "Taste" -> "DwD" (the closing section). Viewed as a single piece, it's 47 minutes of incredible, must-hear jamming.|
|1997-02-17||Carini||Amsterdam, Netherlands||21:25||Debut is a masterpiece of improvisation, the centerpiece of a "DwD"->"Carini"->"Taste"->"DwD" suite. A mix of upbeat jamming, raging psychedelic rock, rhythmic stop/starts, quiet space, and more. Absolutely must-hear.|
|1997-02-17||Taste||Amsterdam, Netherlands||6:38||Straightforward "Taste" version is part of a much larger "DwD" -> "Carini" -> "Taste" -> "DwD" song and jamming combination.|
|1997-02-17||DwD||Amsterdam, Netherlands||1:24||Closing section of this epic "DwD" -> "Carini" -> "Taste" -> "DwD" combination.|
|1997-07-01||Ghost||Amsterdam, Netherlands||20:31||Melodious "Back of the Worm" madness. [Funk flows to "Back of the Worm" jamming, then opens to serene and melodic grooving, which eventually grows funky and percussive again. Helluva show opener!]|
|1997-07-01||Ya Mar||Amsterdam, Netherlands||9:43||Worm banter. Great short jam and drum solo. Page rocks!|
|1997-07-01||LxL||Amsterdam, Netherlands||11:33||Two weeks into its life, the band has got this song nearly nailed. This version is very well played and includes a delicate, almost silent coda that leads to a -> to "Ain't Love Funny."|
|1997-07-01||Reba||Amsterdam, Netherlands||17:08||After an ugly composed section, the jam moves from a familiar, quiet sentiment to become both melodic and spacey, with great effects from Page offset by playing upon his acoustic. Trey solos thoughtfully and deliberately, the jam both driven and breezy, a great groove driven upwards towards a "Slave"-like build.|
|1997-07-01||Jam||Amsterdam, Netherlands||2:31||Fish kicks off Set II of a storied show playing the piano, solo, and is joined by the others while he switches to his drum set.|
|1997-07-01||Timber Ho||Amsterdam, Netherlands||8:15||An extremely well-played version kicks off the second set of very popular and highly rated show.|
|1997-07-01||Gin||Amsterdam, Netherlands||14:27||Really great version that begins with an old-school (pre-August '93) style "Gin" jam, then morphs into a dark and growly power jam with a "Little Drummer Boy" tease. Gets mellow and funky at the end and -> to a HUGE "Cities."|
|1997-07-01||Cities||Amsterdam, Netherlands||9:33||A super slow tempo, groovy straightforward "Cities" -> to an incredible "Jam."|
|1997-07-01||Jam||Amsterdam, Netherlands||14:49||-> in from "Cities." Super slow and groovy. Jam breaks down into an extended, meandering groove that patiently and sedately coasts along. Includes "Worm" banter, "When The Saints Go Marching In" and "Santa Claus Is Coming To Town" teases, and gradually builds some energy and pulse towards the end.|
|1997-07-02||Maze||Amsterdam, Netherlands||13:24||-> in from "Simple." Page deploys multiple keyboard weapons, and then it just gets blistering hot.|
|1997-07-02||Weekapaug||Amsterdam, Netherlands||13:09||This set-closing version takes a funky and gooey ride through the sewers of Amsterdam.|
|1997-07-02||Stash||Amsterdam, Netherlands||30:23||Unusual intro with delay effects. The jam breaks from standard at about 15:07 into a rocking groove which then morphs into a melodic, upbeat groove capped with a bass solo. Dissolves into dissonant space and -> to "Llama."|
|1997-07-02||Llama||Amsterdam, Netherlands||6:01||-> in from "Stash." Incredibly funky Page section and an intense Trey section. No final refrain as the music cycles down, then rebuilds into a dark, ominous "Wormtown" Jam played to the melody of Steve Miller's "Swingtown," but changing lyrics to "Wormtown." Lots of Trey and Fish "Worm" banter. -> to "Velvet Sea."|
|1997-07-02||Wormtown||Amsterdam, Netherlands||7:00||-> in from "Llama." A dark, ominous jam develops that is played to the melody of Steve Miller's "Swingtown," but changing lyrics to "Wormtown." Lots of Trey and Fish "Worm" banter. -> to "Velvet Sea."|
|1997-07-02||Velvet Sea||Amsterdam, Netherlands||7:29||Slow, syrupy, yet anything but saccharine, a dizzy, patient performance perfectly encapsulates an important side of the band's Euro '97 sound. Triumphant, yet melancholy, fans of the song, or Trey, generally, could do worse than to start, and end, here. A masterpiece.|
|1997-07-02||Free||Amsterdam, Netherlands||11:03||More of the modern "Free" jam, with a great bass-led breakdown and some good delay/resume action.|
