Review by Bob_Loblaw

Bob_Loblaw Not a big fan of this show, lots of rough edges. But what saves it from becoming a two star show is a couple great versions of songs.

First set is fairly straight forward the segue into Wolfmans is pretty cool although it's a pretty average version. Reba gets a nice little stretch to it, it doesn't do anything new really but it's still a great standard version from a great year. What really hinders this set is Caspian and Free two brand new songs that are very rough in terms of playing, so they can be a forgiven for that.

Set 2 is a slight improvement. I like the Keyboard Army bookends to the set. Cars Trucks & Buses (another new song) is pretty rough and obviously still in it's infancy. Timber Ho! is also especially rough and not it's finally polished counterpart from a month or so later. YEM is one of the songs that saves this show, it gets stretched out a little and has some great Trey peaks in it. Bowie is one of the other songs that saves the set, it's nothing spectacular but at this point they could play a good version in their sleep and this is proof.

Very standard encore from this era.

This show is close to being a "not-so-good-show" but it is saved by the likes of Reba, YEM, & Bowie.
