Review by westbrook

westbrook First of all, the SBD recording is pretty good but a little hissy. GTBT from the first set and the entire third set are missing. So, this review is only for the first two sets. This show has lots of covers, in fact, there are as many covers as originals in the first two sets. Walk Away and Funky Bitch open the show in fine fashion. YEM is a little loose, but the jam is nice. Flat Fee is snappy; Page sounds really good here and in the following McGrupp. Wilson> Peaches en Regalia is where this show gets really interesting. Instead of Trey doing BLAT BOOM, he sings the opening drum roll to Peaches which starts the song. I know this segue happened on a number of occasions in the 80s, but it's very fun when you're not expecting it. I thought Ride Captain Ride had a very good little jam. This is the last Boogie on Reggae Woman until 12/7/97, and although, it's not super funky like the later versions, it does feature a nice solo from Page. Cities> DEG> Cities is another highlight. It's a full on DEG jam. Run like an Antelope is solid, and I really liked the intro section. Fluffhead is ok, but the recording cuts before the end of it. I thought this show was pretty fun and interesting, especially Wilson> Peaches, Ride Captain Ride, and Cities> DEG> Cities. 4 Stars.
