Le Bataclan was a ballroom style club with a mezzanine, and the crowd seemed to be mostly local, but with a strong showing from American students in Paris for the semester. Slave was a nice first set closer, but the Harry Hood was definitely the highlight of the show. It's not a huge, stretched-out jam but it featured a nice tight progression building to a climax that really turned my head around. Even if the rest of the show is nothing special, this version of Harry Hood is worth checking out.

This show was very difficult to rate. (Ended up going with 4/5, equal to 2/17).

As others have mentioned, Harry Hood is the only stand-out jam, it gets even more beautiful than most versions.

While no other versions are stand-out, pretty much everything is well played, especially the Stash, Slave, and Reba. Come to think of it, this would be a great show for a novice. Really a greatest hits show that might not appeal as much to those looking for DWD->Carini->Taste->DWD craziness of the previous night, but I certainly enjoyed the ride.
