Review by westbrook

westbrook This show has several of the songs that were routinely great in Spring 94. The reliable Runaway Jim opener gets things off to a good start. It's Ice is executed nicely. Split Open and Melt brings the heat, and Down with Disease is a good example of the guitar workouts found in the early versions of the song. The My Friend, My Friend set 2 opener is an interesting version, as the usual end of the song is substituted for a short "Rockin' Back Inside My Heart" jam. I'm a fan of Ya Mar, and I think it fits well here. I think Trey may be teasing something around the 7:00 mark, but I can't put a finger on it. I'd say the Run Like an Antelope that follows is one of the 2 biggest highlights of the show; it's a great version. The Rye Rye Rocco section is very relaxed. Fluffhead has a few minor slip ups, but is solid overall. Ginseng Sullivan is my favorite bluegrass cover and Fishman being on the washboard makes it even better. I Wanna Be Like You is a great Fishman song. I wish it had stayed in the rotation longer. Harry Hood is the story of this show. In a year filled with great Hoods, I put this one up there with the best of them. Give this Hood a listen, for sure.
