ucpete The second night of Dublin features a couple repeats from night one, but they work here -- Limb By Limb is much tighter tonight, and Fishman has already shown marked improvement with the tough task of keeping time on this syncopated number. Interestingly, after LxL before Bye Bye Foot, Trey says something like "Bye Bye Foot is my favorite of this new batch of songs, and it's written by none other than Jon Fishman". Within two months they never played it again, but it's a nice tune with some nice chord changes and some wispy, poetic lyrics. The second set is where things get interesting (don't they always?) -- again, like night one, this show is more historic than epic, but we do see the debut of Twist, Piper, Saw It Again, and the official debut (not counting Bradstock) and official last time played of Waking Up, another song I wouldn't mind hearing live! Twist is actually pretty rad considering it's the first ever, but Piper is way short. Possibly the shortest ever at 5 minutes long. We get Dogs Stole Things for the second night in a row and it's a little tighter than night one, and then shit gets really interesting: a jammed out Waste (?!), an 18 minute Bowie with some DEG teasing in the intro and some more 93-style DEG-like teasing in the jam (!), and a funked up, drawn out, stop / start, goofy Cavern (!!) to close the second frame. Circus Comes, Rocky Top, goodnight now. I prefer night two to night one actually... anyway, nothing super important here, but for shits and giggles find yourself a copy of the Cavern SBD that came out during the FTA at SBIX.

Somewhat of a decent show. The birth of the '97 funk can be heard throughout several of the jams. Most notably, the fantastically groovy Free. Even though the jam stays within it's chord progression, the guys lay down some hefty funk.

Not sure why the guys had to play Limb By Limb and Dogs Stole Things both for the second show in a row. You'd think that at this point in their careers they could continue to mix it up.

Nonetheless, just like ucpete said, make sure you grab the Cavern SBD before you dive into this show!
