THE BAD: There's a bit of a mid-set lull in the first set, with a handful of 5-6 minute-ers that are not very remarkable. The clear worst part about this show, though, is the audio cut at the absolute peak of this Lizards! Sure sounds like a tape flip issue, but man, what a bad time to have that happen!
ETC: This show is filled with little teases and tidbits. I disagree with the full Donna Lee call - to me it is just a tease. Fishman is introduced as the "Master of the Universe...reborn!" and plays washboard for I Didn't Know. If you listen carefully, you can hear the audience chant for Lizards at the start of the second set. The band eventually plays it. You can also hear someone call for Harpua, which the band plays, but not before Trey thanks the crowd as it was the last of the 'northeast run'. It's unusual to see Fishman do 2 songs in a night, but during Purple Rain, he asks the audience "do I look like Prince?"
BOTTOM LINE: Great way to end the Northeast run, with the band at its playful best. 4.5/5
