Review by dscott

dscott Magnaball has prompted me to revisit past shows whose names are August fest. Finally listened to the SBD of this soundcheck for the first time. The AUD fragment that I've had for years doesn't do it justice. The SBD provides a wonderful glimpse of an improbably tight band playing loosely. The 1st jam, joined in progress, rocks hard. The 2nd jam is actually more of a Tweeprise jam than a HYHU jam, at least to my ears. Jam #3 is an exquisite melody. Sounds familiar, but I can't place it. Simply beautiful. Jam #4 is the big one. Starts with formulaic blues-rock riffing, but it gets good and weird for several minutes before it ultimately fades out.
