TheEmu There are two reasons to listen to this set. First, is a really excellent YEM, which, although it starts off a little rough, comes to a ripping finish and has a very cool vocal jam. Don't let the burgers fool you, it's a very interesting vocal jam, not just burger goofiness. The second thing is the HYHYU > Terrapin -> Whole Lotta Love thing, which is awesome. Probably those two songs don't really justify 4 stars, but I'm feeling goofy today. Someone else can downgrade it to it's appropriate level.

cjfphan21 Solid CDT, Coil (though pre-awesome page solo of course), D&M, Magilla (sans a bad chord right on the end, which may have been intentional, but it sounded like dirt to me). There’s a slight drop in the recording early in Oh Kee Pah. Some serious Cactus and Page work going on in Suzy, but then Trey came in and kinda muffed it up, IMO. Good Antelope - Trey redeems himself from that business in Suzy, but as with the rest of the aforementioned, nothing too special.

Now to get to the good stuff. YEM is a little rough around the edges early on, but once it gets going it is very nice. The jam, while fairly standard, does not get boring, and the BnD seg is definitely worth the listen. If that weren't enough, this vocal jam is inventive, engaging, and original, and you can tell the guys as well as the crowd are having a lot of fun with it. Henrietta is "The hardest man in show business" (that's what she said...and Trey). Terrapin is always fun, and the hardest man in show business does not disappoint with this one. Then, the best trombone player in VT goes on to showcase his boner skills with a little Whole Lotta Love Jam, which is fun, funny, and an all around good time. I think this deserves somewhere around 3.6-3.7 stars and there's already two 4 star ratings, so I'm gonna log mine at 3.
