The live version of this track opened with some typical 1986 atmospheres (sounds used on Underwater Sunlight and Legend). After about a minute, it launches into a faithful rendition of the studio track from Exit, although going on for slightly longer (simply by virtue of repetition). At the end of the original track, there is a short bridge leading into a small amount of Intro UK 86 to segue into Stratosfear.
As with the European version, this track varied from show to show, with different combinations of themes used after the usual opening from Ricochet, Part Two. The version on Vault IV, for instance quotes from Song Of The Whale, Part Two: ...To Dusk, but this was not always present.
Greatly extended compared to the studio version from Underwater Sunlight. There is a lot of repetition of the end part (in order to incorporate a guitar solo), and the overall sound is "beefier", with heavier percussion and generally more going on in the background. After the main part of the track is over, there is a short bridge into the next track.
A curiosity. Only known to have been played at Vancouver, where, for the only known time, it replaced Unicorn Theme as the first encore. The (occasional) lead line borrows from Cool Breeze Of Brighton, itself borrowed from Scrap Yard. Rhythmically this is probably closer to the former, although much more frenetic. Quite a percussion-heavy track, and probably an excuse for a guitar solo (the track is littered with guitar work).
Another curiosity. The only concerts at which this unreleased track is known to have been played were the Toronto date and the Cleveland gig three days later. Stylistically similar to Dolphin Dance, inasmuch as based around four-bar four-chord phrases, but a lot more drum-heavy. Seemingly another excuse for an Edgar guitar solo. This is called Vondelpark on the A Sea Of Dreams bootleg.
Played as last (that is, third or even fourth) encore on at least thirteen gigs of this tour.

There is very little difference between the tracklist for the North America tour and the earlier European tour (as Vault IV demonstrates). The principal differences here are the addition of Pilots Of Purple Twilight at the beginning of the main set, and the replacement of the couple Cool Breeze Of Brighton/Northern Lights with Ride On The Ray/The Velvet Garden. Consequently, for comments about most tracks, see the 1986 European tour.
