1998 - Live in Santiago

You like Chris Squire? So this show is for you. Similar to the Budapest show recently posted here, this one has a mix that privileges the bass. It is very loud, and Chris's performance is astonishing.

So this show has my favourite ever live version of Heart of the Sunrise. I just can't explain the sound of the bass in this song here. It has to be heard to be believed.

Other good moments are Rhythm of Love, which, amazingly, became a very good song in this tour, and Roundabout, with Chris's classic bass lines played very loud.

Audio is good, though Steve and Igor are sometimes not very audible for the bass's loudness. The only recording flaw is in Steve's acoustic solo, some seconds are missing. A pity, for he was doing a great solo.

Set list:

Firebird Suite
Siberian Khatru
Rhythm Of Love
America
Open Your Eyes
And You And I
Heart Of The Sunrise
Mood For A Day/Winter/Guitar Boogie/Clap
From The Balcony
Wonderous Stories
Khoroshev Solo

I've Seen All Good People
Roundabout
Starship Trooper

I agree that there is a very special version of "Heart of the Sunrise" included in the recording. I have never heart an audience sing this before. very moving indeed!
