gphishmon If we were judging by just the second set, this one would be among the tops of the tour. Better than MPP1. But there is the first set to consider, and this one was rather uninteresting, although I dug the funk-style Llama and hope it continues. There were just too many throwaway songs (Bouncin', Lawnboy, Waiting All Night), a standard Moma Dance and Tube. and generally a lack of anything really exciting. Maze and Wolfman's were the highlights, but neither went into any non-standard places.

But the second set! Pretty much every song had that extra juice. Wedge started with an unusual degree of shreddage, and then Golden Age produced a long and stellar jam. Mike's kept the energy up. Ghost ended way too soon but only to segue into No Quarter! One of my all-time Zep faves, with it's haunting organ part and spooky vocals, and this one lived up to its billing, as Trey took it into the stratosphere. Weekapaug featured plenty of exploration, although limited, staying in the groove. And then to top it off, a massively shredded First Tube.
