Review by Capricornholio

Capricornholio A pretty good show that circulates in SBD. Interestingly, the taper hooked up his DAT to an assisted listening device that outputs a SBD signal for the hearing impaired. The recording itself is overly compressed with static throughout. My version is a matrix that has the timing slightly off, giving it a slapback echo effect. I still prefer it over the straight AUDs, but its not a great recording so you may prefer the audience tapes.

The show starts off with another funky/solid Moma (is 98 the best year for this song?) which segues nicely into a Jim that gets a little bit of extra ambient/funk treatment at the end. In 98 it was commonplace, but getting a jam like this in the two hole would be considered something very special these days. The rest of the set is pretty standard up till Taste which gets a little something extra and dips back into that 98 quasi ambient territory. The undisputed highlight of the show is the Wolfman's which goes on for 20+ minutes and includes great funk jamming that gets increasingly more sparse until it fades into ambient territory and floats into a nice 2001. SOAMule is notable for the Ha Ha Ha in the duel section. A standard (read pretty) slave helps lead into the closing rockers: CDT and Zero.

Highlights: Jim, Taste, Wolfman's 2001
