DollarBill Wow thatís a lot of tape hiss! This is a nice one set benefit show and the playing is good overall, but its just really hard to hear because the signal to noise ratio is way out of proportion.

The Curtain sounded a little rusty to me and itís been about a month for this one so I guess thatís about right. Bag was good, as was Mikeís entire Groove, though I think we lost Mike somewhere in Hydrogen. Weekapaug was rocking! Lizards is getting better each performance. In a Hole was cut at the beginning so we only get one verse and the jam for the last ever performance of this song and I still wonder why? Itís a good song akin to My Soul in style, maybe they should bring this one back? Golgi was ok; it had a few little off spots. After some announcements for the upcoming New Yearís Eve show Possum was very rocking but a bit sloppy at times.

Really nice set overall, I just wish the recording couldíve survived in better shape. I think this might have been four-star territory, but Iím only going with two because the recording is that bad and there is some sloppy playing in there too.
