DollarBill This was a decent recording for the time period, although boomy because of the barn building. This is also important for the archives if this is in fact the first known Golgi, and Wilson and the first time I've heard Mike sing Possum this year. There may have been others before this gig, but alas we do not have setlists or recordings as proof, this being the first school year with out Jeff. Sally is nice and funky and you can hear Marley, I'm assuming, barking on the recording before a jammy Makisupa, which is strangely similar to versions I would hear twelve years later. Trey was already messing with delay pedals and such. It is a nice clean sound without a second guitar.

This show is a great listen for hard core fans.
Score: 2

TheEmu Interesting intro on this first-known version of Golgi. Slave and Possum don't have very interesting jams, but the highlights here I'd say would be a decent jam out of Halley's and into Possum, and a long Makisupa with some tasty Cactus. Oh, and Marley joining in on the Sneakin' Sally vocal jam :) I'd probably call this 2 1/2 stars, so I'll lean towards the high end and go 3.

P.S. What's with the Wilson vocals during this time period? Was Errand Wolfe originally conceived of as Bob Dylan?

cjfphan21 First Golgi and it's not quite up to tempo yet, but performed fairly well. Slave is alright. That jam out of Halley's to Possum is pretty sweet. Marley really does make this one of the coolest Sneakin' Sally vocal jams. I dig the Makisupa. I kind of agree with the 2.5 stars, and with the current 2 ratings that's exactly what we have, but I feel like I can't NOT log my rating, (c'mon we really need those half stars!) so, in light of the debut performances of Golgi and Wilson, the fact that the recording is MUCH better quality than other pre 88 recordings I've heard, the Marley "banter", and the tasty Makisupa, I'm gonna put up another 3 star rating.
