The (ironic) worst part: the unaugmented quartet is absolutely *devastating* on Boogie On and YEM, and closes with a triumphant Slave. But the Kreutzmann guest shot guts what should've been the best stretch of the run.
Fishman clowns around a little before the Bouncin' encore, fake-crying and calling out 'Where's Bill?!' Then, in the show's most *unintentionally* funny moment, he kicks in that crisp metronomic solo beat, instantly illuminating the difference between the amorphous wash of percussion that soaked the second set, and his own needlepoint precision.
Not to say you shouldn't relax once in a while to your favourite 1973 'Dark Star,' of course. Not that.
But not this either.
