ADAWGWYO This Runaway Jim->Gypsy Queen->Jim is definately worth a listen. So are the first set bluegrass songs with Tim O'Brian.

What a run for these guys the last few weeks . They've been on many emotional highs from opening from santana headlining big Europe shows coming home to 4 sold out night at the legendary Red Rocks!!

This Stash is a great release for the boys after a laid back/sloppy PYITE opener , which is always welcomed, in my book.
Awesome stash. Great Type II jam here

Nice YA MAr. shout outs are always nice.
Gumbo is just a great song always.
An early Taste that really make you appreciate where song has gone since. Its tihg nonetheless but Trey is content to be rhythm guitar hero and use the song s a page fish vehicle
PAge nails the LAwn Boy
Nice acoustic set . Tim Obrien holds it down

Runaway Jim Sen Set opener gets Type II also. Splendid!! I lke to describe it as a metal box of music falloing down a flight if stairs. tre brings it back to the them for about 30 seconds and Mike says no let's leav this all together. He pulls the band off on brilliant tangent Gypsy Queen
Trey then gets on top of everthing and things get reaaaally fun.Then Page takes over while Trey gets on his kit. The end is also very interesting to listen to. It's like they don't want to end the song.

To say this Possum!!! is hot is a vast understatement. Lots of energy .Trey actually bugs out on this one for a while lucky for us, in some eerie , Guitar Hero , Me and My Axe type stuff. This is what yyou pay the money to see and hear. This is a 12 minute Possum that is filthy from the guitar stand point. Best Jam of the $-Night Stand candidate. To show you how amazing this is I am not even going to review the Y.E.M.
