Review by Frankster

Frankster Summer 99 was marred by inconsistent playing both as a tour and within individual shows. In hind sight we now know why. Serious partying before shows permiated the lots as well as back stage. With that being said there is plenty of excellent jamming throughout this tour. This show looks great on paper but unfortunatly doesn't bring home the bacon. The playing here is very sloppy and honestly boring. I am a fan of the layered ambient jams of the late 90's but it sounds like the boys were very high and just couldn't connect with each other. You would think a 22 minute 2001 into DWD would be an epic show piece but here we get aimless wondering. Now thats not to say there aren't some musical high lights. Check out Axilla>Rift and a cool encore with Derick Trucks. Side note: Has there been a show in N.C. where it didn't rain?
