TheEmu This one's kind of a mixed bag, IMO. You've got a lot of shakiness bordering on outright slop in Esther and Foam, and Fluffhead takes a shot at trainwreck territory. On the other hand, you've got a pretty good early Reba that Trey takes by the nose and drags to a respectable finish, a pretty good Tweezer, decent, tease-filled versions of Suzy and Antelope, and the highlights of the show, a viscous, growly Funky Bitch and a very nice Harry Hood with intro straight BLOWN UP courtesy of a Cactus bombing run that draws whoops of appreciation from Fishman. I'll also mention an amusing moment in Bike, where Fishman says "Everywhere a gingerbread man -- what are you lookin' at?" Ha! Much of this is two-star material, but I'm feeling generous due to really enjoying the Funky Bitch and the Hood. Three stars.

play_it_leo89 I've admittedly not listened to as much from 1990 as I probably should, so looking through some shows randomly, I came across this one.

I'm a big Runaway Jim fan - my absolute favorite song they play - so I was surprised when I found it was slightly different from the versions I've come to know and love.

Check out the (slightly) alternate lyrics (an added couple of lines, really)!
