TheEmu The sound on the first set is pretty crispy, except the levels on the guitar are waaaaay low so the songs sound kind of empty. In set two, the guitar mix problem is better, but the overall sound is worse and there are BIG level jumps. Musically, everything is pretty solid, with one highlight being the Whipping Post encore (full band, not Henrietta). I was going to say three stars, but it was close anyway, and since there are the sound issues, I'll go two stars.

cjfphan21 There's solid performances of Fluff and Esther here and a short but sweet Mike's Groove. Donna Lee is good, but I prefer it with horns. Antelope is on the short side as well, but rages quite nicely. Caravan is always fun to hear. Everything else in the second set is just standard songs, though well played and all pretty tight. I would recommend checking out that Whipping Post though.
As far as sound quality goes, the spreadsheet download has a nice SBD for the first set, and the second set is an okay AUD, but it's left channel heavy a lot of the time. I'm gonna go 3 stars on this to balance put it at a 2.5, which is pretty fair.
