Review by DollarBill

DollarBill Good show tonight. Last of the full, two set shows for a while. Not as good as last night's though. Very boomy sounding recording. Not sure if that's from the original mix or somebody upped the low end in one tape generation. I can't believe I would ever ask for less Mike!

Ok, good Poor Heart to start things off including a call out for Cactus. Ice was ok, still needs polishing. Sparkle was good, with a call out for Sam? Sounds like Fishman and Trey calling for him? Wilson is very rusty sounding as is Dinner. The gap chart proves this. Bouncing is just ok, very uninspired. Maze picks things up a bit. Pretty good but, not great, as is Guelah. Rift is back again with it's new structure. Much better tonight. Horn is rough for Trey. All the antics in the begining of Bowie causes them to blow the actual intro to Bowie itself. Not sure what the deal with Blue Bayou is tonight? Listen carefully at about eight minutes in, it sounds like the actual solo section to My Soul, how many years before they really play it? Bowie itself is ok, not great.

Can't quite tell what Trey is singing before the start of second set? Jim is a good opener. They have been playing this one well. Woo hoo! Weigh is back! I love this song, it shows some rust but, it's great to hear anyway. A second set Landlady? That's different and this one is good with the Santana tease. Fluffhead is pretty good. Then another rarity shows up with TMWSIY>Avenu>TMWSIY. Lots of rust to knock off and another call out for Cactus! Llama rips as usual. Sounds like a Mission Impossible tease from Page. Glide is good, as is Paul and Mike's Song. Hydrogen has it's problems as usual. Weekapaug is a good, solid jam to close tonight.

Again we have multiple Blue Bayou teases before a proper encore of Squirming Coil which is pretty good tonight.

Pretty good show overall with a few sloppy ones thrown in and some more rusty ones pulled off the shelf. Getting ready for some Santana openers!
