Review by westbrook

westbrook The first set is pretty straight-forward, although the Peaches bustout in the opening spot and Curtain>Down with Disease is swell. The second set is an improvement over the first, highlighted by one of the top Tweezers (and jams) of the year. Fall 96 was a great time for Simple, and while this is not one of the best of the tour, it still gets to a pretty nice, Page-heavy jam. Reba starts off very well, but the end doesn't quite hold up. Still a good version. Steep>Tweezer Reprise is a pretty cool moment and >Johnny B Goode keeps the energy high, while a nice Slave and Highway to Hell end this average show. This show probably gets looked over by many fans, which is understandable considering the higher-acclaimed shows surrounding it (11/30, 12/6), and the somewhat poor quality of the AUD. I think you can pass on listening to the entire show without too much regret, but the Tweezer is must-hear.
