Song Credits:

'Formal Introduction' & 'Powerful Hankerin' are fIREHOSE songs (from 'Mr. Machinery Operator' album)
'Makin' the Freeway' is a fIREHOSE song (from 'If'n' album)
'Political Song' is a Minuteman song (from 'Double Nickels on the Dime' album)
'Habit' is a Pearl Jam song (from 'No Code' album)
'The Red and the Black' is a Blue Oyster Cult song (from 'Tyranny and Mutation' album)
'Secret Garden' is a Madonna song (from 'Erotica' album)


Audio Notes:
This recording comes from a pro-shot video master of the show, in which an audio copy was traded
to a friend of a camera man on tape, cleaned up with Cool Edit, and put to CD.
There is a slight skip before track 8 begins (present on original copy), and a few audio shifts
periodically throughout the show that are only noticeable if you have headphones on.


Show Notes:
This was one of the shows on Mike Watt's 'Ringspiel' tour in April-May of 1995, supported by the then
newly-formed Foo Fighters (of which Grohl, Smear, and Goldsmith were in) and Hovercraft (which featured Vedder
on drums and his then-wife Beth Liebling).  By the end of the tour, Eddie had stopped playing with the
Watt crew because his presence became a distraction with fans only showing up to see him.  It's almost
impossible to tell who is playing what instrument, it's just a great rock show.

Notable on these shows is the premier of the song 'Habit,' which was yet to be premiered by Pearl Jam.
It was eventually played a handful of times the rest of the 1995 PJ tour, but it is not known if
it was written before or during the 'Ringspeil' tour.
