NOTES:
My recording circulates within the Moz community but only from an analog transfer as I didn't have the capability to do digital transfers at that time. There was also some EQ'ing done to that version. This is my raw dat master, presented with no post processing whatsoever. Seeing Moz in my hometown of Boise was something I thought I would never see as I was used to traveling long distances to see his gigs. I actually had arranged for an ALD from the venue but it turned out to be more of a small amplifier with a little mic sticking out of it so no go there :) After the show Moz was really easy to talk to at the Red Lion Riverside Hotel downtown, lingering in the parking lot with his band to chat with fans.
Recorded by JLW.
Seeded on 01/10.
From http://www.passionsjustlikemine.com/live/moz-g000205.htm
This concert went down well despite it not being sold out, the bad choice of venue (a rodeo arena) and the lukewarm reception. Morrissey was still energetic and very talkative. No one made it on stage although there were quite a few attempts.
There were quite a few changes in the setlist. "Billy Budd", "Half A Person" and "Break Up The Family" were temporarily dropped and replaced with "Reader Meet Author", "Shoplifters Of The World Unite" and, for the first time on the Oye Esteban tour, "The More You Ignore Me, The Closer I Get".
Morrissey couldn't resist greeting the audience with the pun "Hello girls, hello Boise!" In live performances of "The Boy Racer" at the time he usually made various noises instead of singing "I'm gonna kill him". This was the case on this date, but after giving out a few aahs instead of the forbidden words, he shouted "Jerry Springer!". After the song he commented on the turnout: "Welcome to our strange little show... and you didn't really expect us to sell out, did you?... We did... Oh yes..." After "Alma Matters" he replied to someone "What? Oh the pressure..."
After the lesser known b-side "A Swallow On My Neck" Morrissey acknowledged the crowd's response by saying "We know you didn't know it, but thank you anyway..." He then asked a fan in the front rows: "How are you?... Can't reach, I can't reach... These for me? Aaahh..." During the opening bars of "Hairdresser On Fire" someone threw a beer cup on stage, which prompted him to say "Very nice, I really feel welcome now..." After the song he commented on a female fan who had just been taken down by security while surfing towards the stage: "I tried to save her, but she went to the sharks... too bad, really... I hope nobody faints because this is a very cheap show, we can't afford stretchers or anything like that... That wasn't very funny was it? Well you have to remember I'm English! I have no sense of humour... (some fan comments loudly) I heard that..."
Following "Is It Really So Strange?" Morrissey joked "We did that song because we don't want the oldest segment of the audience to feel left out... and I'm actually in that segment..." Between the first few lines in "Lost" he asked someone "Did you make this yourself?" He was distracted by some action in front of him during the rest of the song, said "Dear God!" and giggled. During "Speedway" he said "It could only be Boise..." After "November Spawned A Monster" he commented "So as you can see in here all these songs are very miserable and depressing... MTV are always correct..."
As the first few notes of "Now My Heart Is Full" were heard Morrissey replied to someone "Chicago? Are you from Chicago? You're not from Chicago?" The audience's appreciation for the latter song must have been lukewarm because he told them "You're growing tired..." He then asked someone "What d'you mean 'you rock'? Rock? I don't rock..." In the opening bars to "Reader Meet Author" he joked "I am the morning DJ from W-O-L-D." He also adapted one of the song's line to the locality by singing "Have you ever escaped from a Caldwell life?".
"Meat Is Murder" was introduced with "Now I know that some of you live up in the mountains but - don't ask me how I know that but - and I'm sure you believe that a man's gotta eat what a man's gotta eat but... there is another view you know..." During "The More You Ignore Me, the Closer I Get" he encouraged someone trying to get on stage to "swim boy, swim boy, swim..." After the song he joked "40 years old and no brow, not bad..." During "Tomorrow" a fan almost made it on stage and as he was escorted out Morrissey said "That's the mayor of Boise".
After "Tomorrow" Morrissey said "Thank you for the feather boa but... this isn't a drag show it may (?) quickly, really... this isn't a drag show it may have (?) quickly, I thought that was quite funny... I was wrong!" After "The Teachers Are Afraid Of The Pupils" he introduced the next title on the setlist with "This song ripples with meaning, it's called 'I Can Have Both'... What does that mean? It doesn't mean..." However after a few lines and "planning my selection from..." he veered off and sang "I think we're out of tune... Yes we're definitely out of tune... that's how much meaning that song had..." The band stopped and Morrissey said "Alright, forget 'I Can Have Both', it's not true anyway... I think it's an omen, we shouldn't really do it... Alright we've been very kind, I mean we're still here, that's committed... This is before you (?) all back to the Ponderosa..."
Following this Morrissey and the band went into "Last Night I Dreamt That Somebody Loved Me". Because that song was the usual encore on this tour some fans feared that with the skipped "I Can Have Both" they would be losing out on another number, but they were wrong. After the song and a short break Morrissey returned to the stage and said "If we ever get invited back we'll certainly come so... you'll probably never see us again..." before going into "Shoplifters Of The World Unite".
