fhqwhgads Both days of the Great Went favor their second sets heavily. Here, you get a monumental Down with Disease (-> Jam?) -> Bathtub Gin a.k.a. "The Went Gin," which I'll admit is thrilling but not necessarily worthy of "best-ever" status, then a massive 2001 -> Art Jam > Harry Hood segment, with the 2001 being one of the all-time versions and Hood boasting the first-ever glowstick war (commended by Trey himself.) The Prince Caspian in the third set is a bit longer than usual, and the appearance of the now-rare Beauty of My Dreams in the first set does much to recommend it (not to mention the Tweezer -> Taste which showcases Mike's new "attack on the bass" and foreshadows the funk theme of Fall '97.) Unlike Clifford Ball, where I am a 8/16/96 phan, here it's about the second day (8/17/97.) Honestly, I think Clifford Ball outweighs the Great Went for pure novelty, but the Went has more jamming.
