ucpete There's not much to write here, as this show was short as shit. Wilson opener, as the show notes mention, was quite appropriate given the venue's proximity to Stonehenge. This audience recording is absolute shit by the way :/ Stash is actually pretty decent. And well, that's all I can say about this show. It's such a bad recording and such a short festival set that there's not much to say. This is the lowest rated show of 1997 at 1.4 (yikes) but I think I'll bring it up a bit and give it 2 stars -- sure, the recording sucks and it's only an hour of music, but I'm not going to hold that against the boys. I will hold the lack of exploration against them a little bit though. In summary, Stash and Taste are (typically) good, and the rest is redundant with the much higher quality recordings on your hard drive.

There's really nothing wrong with this show EXCEPT for the almost unbearable recording. No one's to blame for it, but no one wants to listen to it either. The high-pitched screeches in Wilson and CDT will almost certainly either force you to give up on it altogether or turn the volume down so low to the point where you won't be able to hear it.

These jams are short and to the point...nothing to go crazy about. And if I wasn't on a 'must listen to every show of the tour' spree, then I most certainly would've passed up on this one. Don't waste your time, move on to the next show...
