This is the 12th night of the 24 date Canadian Tour opening for The Tragically Hip on their Trouble At The Henhouse Tour. This is a partial recording and also not a soundboard mix. It contains the only recording of The Wreck Of The Edmund Fitzgerald from the tour. This is also one of only 2 Rheos shows recorded in the US to date. This is the show that the Hip recorded for their Live Between Us release and the infamous line "This one's for the Rheostatics...we're all richer for having seen them tonight". The DAT tape label says "Gord Bits" - upon listening to this I realized it is Gord Downie on solo acoustic guitar from October 16 1996 playing a song called "Fear Boner" and another called "Catharsis My Arse" (aka Every Irrelevance from the 2001 Coke Machine Glow album). It also has a 5 minute Tragically Hip jam. Out of respect for the band I followed up with their management and they have asked I do not put this in the public domain...just to clarify what the image shows.
