Melt ratchets up the intensity at the 5 minute mark, while the passion and joy reflected in this early Disease demonstrates the band’s instantaneous love affair with this tune. Suzy has a tease of Pink Floyd’s “Money” by Trey at the beginning of the jam.
The composed section of Reba is sung at a faster tempo than normal, with the band adding these amusing oohs, aahs and other vocal effects. The instrumental section is fast too.
The Mike’s jam is more interesting knowing that Trey is on drums at the end and Fishman is playing Page’s keyboard. Beyond that, even the presence of Oteil on bass can’t elevate this beyond the experimental. Adventurous, even if it doesn’t quite work.
Not much out of the ordinary here other than the unique opener choice, especially compared to some of the special nights on this tour. The Mike's might be interesting to bass enthusiasts.
