westbrook The show gets off to a good start with the bustout of Dinner and a Movie, but it takes the band a few measures to get the tempo right for Bouncing after the > out of Dinner and a Movie. The Reba that follows is speedy, which costs the band some precision points in the composed section, but it has a decent jam that rises steadily in intensity, but is fairly average. Which is to say, it's some fantastic music but probably won't be replacing your favorite versions. Page rather than Mike takes a solo in the following Lawn Boy. PYITE>Slave is probably the high point of the set. Solid versions, both of them. I always enjoy Phishgrass. It would be nice if I'm Blue I'm Lonesome was brought back. Sample puts the wraps on a nice first set, but the real heat is found in the second set, which gets off to a strong start with a rocking AC/DC Bag. This one shreds. It feels like it could just keep going and going. Sparkle keeps the energy high and Free has a typically intense, psychedelic jam. The Beatles rarity I'm So Tired appears next and is the first instance of Mike taking the reins in the set (it would become a theme).
The story of the show is the badass, explosively funky You Enjoy My Brick House (I just made that up, clever huh). In a year full of great YEMs, this one just might be my favorite. As mentioned earlier, Mike steals the show in the second set and he is just phenomenal in this YEM. The whole jam is smoking. The Mike train keeps on rolling in Contact and BBFCFM, and the BBFCFM-Acoustic Army sandwich makes for an interesting juxtaposition. You may recognize Bill Bailey from Dr. McConell's other sit ins with the band. It's an alright song, but more of a novelty than a musical highlight.
Solid show. YEM is Must-Hear.

TheFuckinBook_Man I was not at this show but this was the first show I owned. I didn't own it actually. A friend lent me the 1st set. Or at least up until after Punch. That's all I remember hearing. Yeah, it seems like all I remember was the Dinner through Punch.
It doesn't matter, now.
Then it didn't matter either, because those 5 songs were plenty to get me to listen and relisten and re-re-re-relisten.
I remember analyzing the meaning of how they ordered the 1st 4 songs: ok, so a guy takes a girl out to dinner and a movie, then back to his room to bounce around in, then he tags her, then he sings her to sleep with a sweet ballad. Horny thoughts from a sex-starved 17 year old. I'm 35 now and I realize it's just damn great music.
PS- this Punch You In The Eye didn't fit into the sex night motif, but it, specifically, got my senses interested in the greatest band ever. And I got to hear it at my first show the next year in Knoxville! They're the best!!
