TheEmu The Landlady that opens up this first set is sweeeeet! Fiery and with a Dick Dale-ish ending that I really dug! Unfortunately, that was about the high point to me. Coil is OK and Jim is decent. YEM, however, gets straight-up BAD in the post-Nirvana section, with Trey having all kinds of problems. They recover, the jam is fairly solid, even has a little fire, and the vocal jam is pretty groovin' as far as vocal jams go. Magilla is spacious and decent. The set-closing Bowie does have its moments, and I think they are teasing something in the intro (nothing I can recognize, but it has kind of a All Things Reconsidered quality to it). But there is also some slop in the early parts of the jam, and overall it lacks cohesion and just doesn't do much for me. I'm going to say two stars, but keep in mind that's only based on the first set which is available on the spreadsheet.
