Two Charlie Chan signals and Oom Pa Pa and Random Note signals.
Divided Sky contained a tease of The Man Who Stepped Into Yesterday from Trey. Dog Log was played for the first time since March 9, 1990 (145 shows). Possum contained Makisupa and Yield Not to Temptation teases, two Charlie Chan signals, and Oom Pa Pa and Random Note signals. Small Fish was the opening act.
How could this not be a great show? A hot show just 2 days earlier and a day off then a road trip to humboldt from Berkeley? Experts only dudes...big fun show and I forget if it was a this oen or the next show in october where The Band played and opened. The early nineties are a blurr to me. Its funny from place like the living Room in Providence and Townshend park and Goddad to this remote town in Northern cal...we all knew we were onto something...I went out and partied hard at local bars like toby and Jacks and the Alibi..not even sure if they exist any more...this was a fun day. I have said this in several posts so maybe its not as true as I feel but even back in '91 Fluffhead was getting rare...cheers!
3 stars, I think, but it does have a few moments thrown in. Trey was shred-a-licious in YEM. There were some teases and stuff that are not listed in the setlist file (correction has been submitted). There's a TMWSIY tease in Divided Sky, right at the start of the There's a Christmas Star section. It's short, but clear, and for a second I thought that would be cool, a Divided-> TMWSIY-> Divided...but alas, only a short tease. Then Possum got wacky. First, Fish, instead of starting right in with the snare beat during the intro, repeatedly broke into a BBFCFM-ish beat, before doing the normal Possum intro. Possum then contained Makisupa and Charlie Chan teases, as well as Oom Pa Pa and Random Note secret language. I think there might have been other teases in the Possum as well, but it wasn't anything I could put my finger on. Only bummer was Possum faded out before the jam was over.
