westbrook If you're looking for the best of the 97 Winter European tour, this show should be one of the first you pull down after 3/1 and 2/17. The first thing you'll notice about this show is the impressive setlist filled with bustouts and rarities, but there is some really good jamming in this show as well. The first set is highlighted by a pretty strong Hood, the best Tube played up to this point in the band's career, and a fine performance of the Fishman-penned Rock a William.

The second set gets off to a fast start with Buried Alive>Poor Heart>Ha Ha Ha. Ha Ha Ha is particularly strong as it includes a nice little jam tacked on the end of the song that I wish they would do more often. YEM is solid and the Scent of a Mule later in the set features a great jazzy jam which segues naturally into Magilla. This is definitely one of my favorite Mules. The set-ending Slave is very good and the show concludes with the last Highway to Hell until 6/12/09.

All in all, this is a very nice show and makes a fun listen.

To my ears this this the 4th best Winter 97 show after 3/1, 2/17, and 2/23, but it's a very fun show that is worth the download.

The number one thing it has going for it is the setlist... lots of rarer songs interspersed among classics.

The first set highlight is unquestionably the Tube which is the precursor to the magic that would take place on 12/7. Nothing else stands out, but all of the bustouts are very well played.

As mentioned, the second set SOAMule is a goofy highlight, and the YEM is above average.

Get this one for the setlist and early 90's-esque goofiness.

4/5
