Show Notes

Portland, Oregon was the third stop on the Three Snakes & One Charm 1996 North American fall tour. The band had released the seminal album Three Snakes & One Charm two months preceding this performance, and while this evening only featured three songs proper from the album, one of them, "How Much For Your Wings?" was a "1st time played". Two non-album tracks, Willie Dixon's "Mellow Down Easy", and the original "Just Say Your Sorry" are also included in the set. Another rarely played original song played on this evening was "Song Of The Flesh", a song originally recorded for the then-unreleased album "Tall." This set is also distinguished by one of the more compelling fall 1996 performances of "Ballad In Urgency" and "Wiser Time", seamlessly linked by a passage that showcases not only the kindred musical communication between Rich Robinson and Marc Ford, but of the entire band.

Great show. Sound quality is so good, I threw my boomy audience copy that I've had for 10 years in the trash. I disagree with the previous post's opinion on the guitar mix. Ford and Rich sound gre MORE>

Creative set list and very good and inspiring performance. The mix is ok. Rich and Marc are buried though, especially Marc which is a little disapointing. THANKS for the archive releases guys.
