i dont think this show is getting the credit it deserves. there werent rarities but....
I would have to say that a corrina is a big enough rarity to make a show.. first played in 87 and then only 4 times from 90-11.. that is a rather rare tune but I am not sure how rarities is defined, I know as a deadhead one rare song a show was rather special and would get passed around in a crappy sounding cassette..
just now listening to this enjoyable show but was not there in person
I would say the Moma>Cities>46 Days is definately the highlight of this show.
Straight up 3 stars
Boys really started to get locked in this past summer. The rust from the 5 years off
was much less apparent. This was most noticeable in their jamming and group interplay. This show continued to show strides in the right direction.
The Star-Spangled opener wasn't a big surprise considering the enormous U.S. flag awash in light on the coliseum wall directly across from the band. It was a fun way to begin. My Soul then AC/DC Bag we're both nailed and gave the show a late 90'S feel at the start. Trey really shines in this segment. Next comes Ocelot and it contained a nice airy jam with a smooth flow to it. Mike and Fish really led this groove. The acoustics are surprisingly crisp and clear in this venue. Mike's bass really pops and resonates here. Standard Sample follows and then the rarity of Traffic's Light Up or Leave Me Alone. Page delivers as usual on this. Sugar Shack and Bouncin follow and are standard. A dark Timber! Is played in between and is the highlight of the set until the segment of Axilla>Rift, moma dance->cities>46 Days closes out the set. The 5 sons were a blistering end to the set. The Moma>Cities combo was smooth and funky. Set 1 was lengthy and really ended on a high note after a pretty standard start.
Set 2 starts out with a bang with a P.Y.I.T.E.>Sand>Carini trifecta. Sand is the star here in my opinion as it enters some pretty spacey areas. Carini hits on some dark and evil patches too and it seemed like it was gonna take off before Trey summoned Fuckerpants out of the abyss. Thankfu
