    Tavistock setlist
    Sometimes the lights all shining on me, other times I can barely see.
    Lately it occurs to me what a long strange trip it’s been.

      Interesting... This is Billy’s? I’m a nitwit with technical stuff. I understand he has an Ibanez bass. But Fish and White? And the letters are tunings?
      Somebody enlighten me, please!

        Billy had a white bass and a bass with fish on it. I think both of those are Spector basses but could be wrong!

              The letters & numbers “7B” etc are probably patch numbers for Billy’s effects processor (bank 7 patch B) that’s how I mark up setlists when using my Line 6 device.

Dunno who performs it though.
                  Reviving Future Times/Rejoice would be nice. Always thought that would make a good opener.
                  The Quebec bootleg of OTSWOF is amazing - enough said

                      That's a trip! The opposite of what I would have thought as to how it would start. Pretty cool, now I gotta find a clip with the rest of it.

                        I know I can research it with http://forgotten-yesterdays.com and utoob clips, and I will, but does anyone know offhand, is this the first time Jay has played the encore chestnuts Rndbt & ST (with Yes)?

                          No, he played them in 2016 on the Drama and Tales summer tour in America when Alan was completely out of the band.
