& Verses only, no "I Am My Own Lover" chorus.
# First verse only.
? "GongSong" starts from bridge then one verse and chorus.
/ Sung live on pre-recorded keyboard backing. [cut at 0:01 on applause. Start slightly cut].
° Fades in on 2nd verse. Daevid drinks a "tisane Quebecoise". Sung as "Dope Uncle Sam". [Cut].
§ Daevid's song from "Dreamin' A Dream", not Gilli Smyth's omonimous poem.

Source: Traded CDR (EAC log included) > wav > retracked and normalized > flac.

Date and venue confirmed by flyer (funnily signed by Daevid, used for cover) and Calyx website.

I got this show from a guy who used to help Daevid and Kramer for their east cost 90's shows.
All of the songs fade in and out on applause, except for Daevid's Garçon-Garden-Gongsong-Mother sequence which was one long piece I retracked.
This is all I have from this show; I suspect the running order may be messed up but, not having many shows by Daevid from this tour to compare it with, I decided to leave the track order as it is. Daevid introduces his song in french with some funny expressions.

More Kevin I can't live without! Forgive me for dumping all these comments, but you've got a goldmine of dead links here.

Please re-up here or on Dime if you would be so kind.
