I can't believe that this show is rated so low. I lost the cds to this show years ago but it has always been one of my favorites. I had a driving job at the time and would listen to this show over and over again.

Highlights for me are the SOAM to end set 1 (sloppy, sloppy, good!) and the Mike's groove with a Mountains filling. I absolutely love Mountains in the Mist and personally think this song does not get played enough. I love the placement of the song and it reminds me a bit of Feels Like Rain from Grateful Dead's Without a Net album.

The best part of the show for me is the Groove into What's the Use?. What's the Use is very underplayed. I would take this song at each and every show.

Friday encore didn't do it for me but seriously, this show is a must listen. I know there are better 03 shows like 2-28 and 8-3 but 1-4 should at least be in the conversation with great shows from this year. Give it a listen before disagreeing!

westbrook There's no doubt that the quality of the Hampton 03 shows lands them on the lower end of the scale, which makes sense with them being "warm-up" shows and all, but this third night is pretty good and you'll likely find it to be the best of the bunch. I like the setlsit construction of both sets well enough, and there is good improvisation to be found without having any huge jams. Roggae and Maze are both really good in the first set. The second set all flows rather well, and I'm a big fan of Mountains in the Mist, so its unusual placement in the middle of Mike's Groove is a plus for me. I really like the set-closer slot for 2001, despite this being the only instance in which it occurred. You may scoff at the Friday encore but this debut version features a nicely extended guitar solo that has not been topped since in my opinion.

Still, this is a 3 star show, and the February tour is when 2.0 gets rolling in earnest. If you're looking to hear a show from the infancy of the post-hiatus period, 1/4/03 is the best option.

I liked this show upon first listen. Like most of this period it has some rough edges but they were clearly on the same page this night and they landed some sweet grooves. The magic comes in unexpected places.

The Mike's>Mountains>'Paug>What's the Use is nasty, wicked and sweet all at the same time.

Very happy to own this one. It will be played often.

I would like to point out that this Weekapaug gets dark at the end, unusual for Weekapaug but I guess not that unusual considering the general darkness of the tour to come. Check out this groove and the nice segue to What's The Use?, as well as the typically freaked out SOAM if you need some darkness in your life
