This is actually a pretty good recording right off of the soundboard, you can hear all the crazy reverbs and delays that Paul was adding to the mix, but the playing is definitely five-star tonight. They were just not very tight on this show. Lots of cuts on the recording make it sound suspect that they really broke up the parts of Fluff and interspursed them throughout the show too, but it looks great on paper as the set list.
Check it out if you're into early soundboards and weird set lists.
Very little about this show stood out for me. On the upside, My Sweet One is unusually interesting with some nice bluegrassy licks from Trey. On the downside, the Bowie strikes me as rather unpleasant in an atonal mish-mash sort of way. Pretty much everything else strikes me as average, so three stars.
