This show was part of the "1989 Tour."
The recording I heard comes in at My Sweet One, which was ok, just not totally tight yet. Same thing for Gin and Antelope, its not that they didnít rock, itís just not the tightest playing Iíve ever heard from these guys.
Hood was ok, and I still feel like they arenít locking in all the way with each other. Tela is still getting its final arrangement so there are mistakes and rough parts in this one. Timber sounds very rusty, like they havenít played it in a while and so did Slave for that matter. IDK was fine with the usual Fishman antics included. YEM had some rough parts as Fishman fell off at one point making the climax a little lame tonight, plus parts of the recording are cut so there is no tramps section and Pageís solo pretty much gets cut and it picks up at Treyís part, which is a nice jam. Mikeís part was short and I found it interesting on this one that Fishman keeps drumming through most of the vocal jam at the end, which was then also cut on the recording and then faded out. Possum rocked, but had a rough beginning. Not the greatest playing in this rough second set.
The new Lawn Boy gets the first encore spot tonight and was pretty well done and then a rocking, but sloppy Fire finishes up the night.
Not nearly as good as last nightís Baltimore show, but maybe I missed some gems in the first set?
