Set 1: Sleep, Frankie Says > Ghost, Roggae, Guyute, Wading in the Velvet Sea, Driver, Albuquerque, Birds of a Feather, Piper, Taste
This single-set performance, a taping for the PBS television show Sessions at West 54th, was performed in front of roughly 200 fans and industry executives.
The show was first broadcast the week of January 9, 1999. Sleep, Driver and Albuquerque were performed acoustic.
Trey made jokes about the length of Guyute, remarking that the show could cut to four commercial breaks and the band would still be playing the same song.
Taste was played after Trey took the crowd’s requests for the final song.
When the show was aired, only Birds, Ghost, and Taste were broadcast, with interviews interspersed between songs.
Here’s the complete interview with David Byrne.
