An awesome show here that is well-known for its Bela Fleck sit-in. What more needs to be said about a show with a monster Slave w/ Bela sitting in? A decent amount, actually...
Third song in we are hit with a Reba that means business, already off to a very great start. The sequence of If I Could > Ice > Theme is excellent and flows very well. Acoustic Army is always a treat and then we go in to a humorous Fee, with a nice amount of stage banter after Trey flubs some lyrics. A tight Melt closes the set.
Timber > Sparkle > Simple > Possum is just awesome. All of these songs go together perfectly and each have their own highlights within. It may be worth mentioning that the Possum is 17 minutes long. We get a nice YEM with extended sections in the intro. More magic happens when Bela joins the band. He is a little drowned out in Taste but still adds some nice layers. Poor Heart gives Bela his first chance to really shine, and he certainly does. We then drop in to some acoustic bluegrass that warms the soul... before finally reaching the aforementioned Slave.
Not discrediting the Bag or Ya Mar, as they serve their purpose and get things going, but this show just doesn't quit after Reba.
