In your opinion, is there a better live version of Starship Trooper than the one on Keys To Ascencion?

Keys to Ascension was given the Exit Stage Left treatment and was unfortunately cleaned up quite a bit in the studio.  The album was taken from a 3-night stand in San Luis Obispo during March of 1996.  

 

Fortunately there is a YouTube video of nearly the complete 03/05/1996 show:

 

 

 

You'll find Starship Trooper starting around the 2:22:00 mark.

 

The show was amazing and should have been released as it was played warts and all.

Was listening to the live album for the first time in a while this week after seeing this. For the life of me, I can't understand why these chuckleheads can't mend fences and go out in this lineup:

Vox:      Jon Anderson
Guitar:  Steve Howe & Trevor Rabin
Bass:    Billy Sherwood (or Ged, but that's not happening)
Keys:    Rick Wakeman & Geoff Downes (or Tony Kaye)
Drums:  Alan White & Jay Schellen

 

Doubled up guitar, keys, and drums, to help replicate studio parts and knowing that Alan White has had some medical issues.

My only real quibble with this and the album is that I think the electronic drums sound awful.

Yes those Simmons are an atrocity.
