TheEmu This is a solid show, definitely, although not spectacular. Pretty much all of the stuff with The Truth is good, including Highway to Hell and BBFCFM (what? yeah.) I enjoyed the Caravan w/ Manteca teasing, the Ya Mar, the Antelope, and especially the AC/DC Bag. The OKP>Bag>Curtain>Dog Log>Slave>HTH run is all nice, and the YEM definitely has its moments. About the only shaky moments were TMWSIY> Avenu M. and the composed sections of Reba (although the jam isn't too bad, and contains more Manteca teasing.) Overall, I'd have to say three stars for this, maybe 3.5 thanks to the sax.
