FACTSAREUSELESS I give this four stars reluctantly. Three is probably more appropriate, but there are some stellar moments in this show that merit serious attention.

Jim opens with a promising offering, as Trey goes Hendrix during the jam and my eyebrow props up.

As mentioned above, this Carini is outstanding and one of the three best I've heard. My other faves would be 9/14/11 at Essex Junction,VT and the one from the New Year's Run 2012 (I forget which night). Awesome, dark, evil Carini worth many relistens. Dog Faced Boy was a treat. The Round Room was very psychedelic and unique and worth a relisten. I don't like Guyute and this version is particularly grating against the nerves, but whatever.

YEM is average but I'm sure was a blast if you were there, as it always is.

Second set is off the chain. Seven Below is orgasmic and stellar on all levels. Jams like this one make me keep coming back to 2.0 shows to look for more gold like this. I've never been disappointed when I venture into 2.0. I love Trey's growling tone at this time period. Yes, his precision and focus were not always there, but his playing is always free and wild and Mike's bass licks during this period are always chunky and rich.

Enjoyed the show very much.
