Review by Lemuria

Lemuria Nobody ever reviews soundchecks, but this one's a keeper - fun, long, and relatively continuous - and recordings do circulate, albeit lightly. This isn't a few times through part of a tune while lots of equipment gets tweaked, and it isn't the band jamming for awhile while the house PA gets adjusted. This is the band, with the horns, screwing around for ~25 minutes, with bits of looseness and randomness reminiscent of 2/20/93.
