Bootleg Suggestions

Going on a pretty long road trip this weekend and I'll have a lot of time to kill. I'm pretty familiar with more recent boots, so I'd love some suggestions from 2000, 2003, and 2005. Appreciate any input!

    I always like the 25-08-2000 Jones Beach boot. Plus the final show of 2000 of course, 06-11-2000 Seattle.

    holmdel 2003 has one of the most unique setlists ever (and a sick sick sick sick version of porch).  See if you can figure out why it is so unique.
    I'll ride the wave where it takes me......
  • Gorge 2006, Night 1 (I know...not 2000, 2003, or 2005)...but you'll be glad you did. I was there and the setlist spans all albums, along with some Lost Dog favs:

    I second this as a good choice from 2003 to check out, Holmdel is definitely one of the more interesting selections I've ever listened through regardless of year. I can't for the life of me remember anything about that Porch, but I do remember enjoying that unusual In My Tree and in particular the single appearance ever of Growin' Up. Hunger Strike... well, it was there, at least. Corin tried.

    I'd recommend the 2003 Mansfield show trio on any day of the week, but if you've got that many road hours to kill, try listening through them sequentially. It's literally the most comprehensive summary of the tour you could ask for, and the acoustic pre-set from night three makes that show transcend into one of my favorite bootlegs period. I recommend Gorge 2005 for the same reason, as well as the much more recent Telluride show from 2016. Other 2003 shows I'd strongly recommend are Dallas and San Antonio, although they're far from the longest shows of the tour. Dallas opens up with Alive, into Brain of J, into the best version of 1/2 Full I've heard, which works better than you might imagine. San Antonio was Mike's birthday, and just exceptionally pleasant and lighthearted overall... I can't recall offhand another "happy" version of I Am a Patriot from 2003.

    My personal favorites from 2000 are Paris, Milan, Boise, Pittsburgh, San Diego, and St. Louis. If I had to pick one and only one, than it's definitely St. Louis. I've seen Katowice 2, Las Vegas and Seattle 2 listed on so many favorite bootleg lists it's like a cliche, although to be fair they're fantastic shows. The European leg may well be as clear as Matt Cameron will ever show up on recordings.

    I have this bootleg and know why this set list was special! The first sixteen songs are selected in Chronological order. Three from Ten era, two from VS, three from Vitology era, two from No Code, two from Yield, two from Binaural and finally two from Riot Act before breaking the sequence with Porch to end the set.
