Notes: There is something to be said about the intricate, nuanced & shockingly precise manner in which Tool went about delivering their art. Strong, forceful, aggressive but also subtle, vulnerable & measured in a mix of raw emotion and balanced professionalism. If you think about it, Tool were a very young band on their second International tour in Europe in the opening or one of the opening slots for Rage Against The Machine headlining club shows. Many, if not most, of the European audiences had not heard of them or had much exposure - let alone know what to expect. But, here it is, captured in time. Imagine that... Also, for reasons a little too confusing to mention here, this recording has commonly floated around as "01/27/1993 - Frankfurt, Germany @ Batchskapp". That information was wrong. This mistake was discovered & verified in early 2009.
