TheEmu There's some pretty solid stuff going on in this set. The Reba, while still a work in progress, has some great Trey work and really takes off at the end. You've got a young Cavern (with Brothel Wife lyrics) followed by a spotless Oh Kee Pa leading into an excellent AC/DC Bag. Nice, solid Caravan and a good Alumni Blues with the expanded "thimble full of filth" lyrics. Ya Mar is also very good and has multiple Leo cries, mostly from Cactus, I think, and ends with announcements of "Leo on the Guitar" "Leo on lead vocals" and "Leo on the dance floor." McGrupp has a little flubbage at the start when Page loses his spot and Trey has to circle back around, but Page makes up for that with a very nice solo. Dinner & A Movie is one of the weak spots, and Runaway Jim is pretty you, which brings me to another "Look what I found listening to unrated shows!" moment -- I had no idea there used to be another verse in Jim! "He ran away again on the night he died, but I knew I'd be with him on the other side." Very interesting! Anyway, the set ends with a Bowie which, although not the best version in the world, is still pretty good. I'd love to hear what they did in the second set of this show, because they sound pretty tight on this evening, but for right now I'll just go with three stars, albeit a strong three.
