Review by Bob_Loblaw

Bob_Loblaw Great stepping stone to an epic NYE Run

Cities has a very quick but very nice extra funky jam coming out of it. The Curtain > Sample transition is clean and near perfect. Jim has a very straight forward but nice and mellow jam coming out of it. Farmhouse is very sloppy but it's still just a baby. Melt thru Zero is all pretty straight forward and average.

Simple has a nice mellow bliss jam, based on the banter about the feedback after I have to wonder if the jam would have extended longer if the feedback wasn't bugging Trey so much, who knows? Ghost has a nice, short, tense jam coming out of it. ScentOAM is a fantastic version. It has a nice eerie yet mellow jam in it's center that I like a lot. And the transition back to the ending is flawless and triumphant! Halley's has a jam in a similar vein as it's 11/22/97 counterpart, but goes a fraction of the distance. Slave is pretty average as is the filler songs at the end of the set.

Bold as Love continues the love for Jimi on this tour.

Overall a great show. I'm on the fence between giving it 3 and 4 stars as I'd personally rate it a 3.5.
