gphishmon This is DEFINITELY a 5-star show, pay no attention to the naysayer.

Listening to the recording after being at the show, I'm thinking my choice of listening spot might not have been as good as I thought at the time. I came in late and so missed Simple (a very sweet, though brief, jam) and Glide (an incredibly complicated, difficult tune that they nailed). Heard Buried Alive on the way in and then got on the lawn for McGrupp. The sound there was very quiet, almost inaudible in spots. I needed a bathroom break (during Roggae) and some water, and found that the front of the area around the water fountains seemed to have really loud, clear sound, so I ended up staying there most of the show. When I finally went back to the lawn during WOTC, the sound there had improved dramatically. Oh well.

I still had an incredible time where I was, but listening to the Piper, I'm not sure I fully took in Page's magnificent organ solo. I knew it was a great Piper and I enjoyed it, but I don't know if I heard it fully. I don't know if being on the lawn would have changed that. It might be just one of those things you catch on relistening. Anyway, 46 Days is identified as the must-hear jam, and it's a good one, but Piper is maybe even better in my opinion. Bug, Steam>What's the Use?>Steam seemed like too much slow music in a row to me, and even though it was all well-played, was the weak spot of the set. Yet I have to admit that WTU? had me in a trance. What can I say about Tweezer>N2O>Tweezer that hasn't been said already, or BBFCFM>YPC>BBFCFM for that matter?
