lifeblood: bootlegs: 1998
1998-01-22: the paramount theater - seattle, washington
a really good sounding recording, "shed your skin" is one for the ages, both vocally and with the atmospheric electric guitar, which at one point includes part of "paint it black". "love's recovery" is another standout, with the vocals blending beautifully with vonda shepard's piano.

an excellent sounding recording, by far the best of the eight known boots from this tour, the crowd is very noisy at times, which seemed to be the case at all the shows. amy ray: "the suffragette sessions tour is a socialist experiment in rock and roll. gather a bunch of musicians from different musical genres who are relatively unfamiliar with each other...throw them on a tour bus together...drop them off at a rock club, and see what happens. no hierarchy, no boundaries."
