highhat 7-28 soundcheck: (as is published in Pharmer's Almanac)

Ficus (2x), Shafty, Wading in the Velvet Sea, Sunshine On My Shoulders> Jam
(Fishman says "..you're not vegetarian if you eat the placenta..)

Facts: Page was the 1st member to step on stage this evening and began by peeking and smiling from behind the curtain (House Right/Stage Left). Incidentally, was also last to exit concluding The Squirming Coil.

-Sneaking Sally Thru the Alley did most definitely contain "vocal jamming"; albeit, in subtle fashion.

Fishman sang verses of Lengthwise into his Electrolux.

Trey thanked Rich during Funky Bitch "..for paying the bar tab.. Thank you, Rich for paying the bar tab."

Funky Bitch contained a Moma Dance break down.

Down w/ Disease and Poor Heart were both "flubbed" musically: Disease contained one less bass refrain prior to initial vocals. (Trey laughed)
Poor Heart: a tempo hiccup during intro (provoking Fishman banter)

The vocal jam in YEM resembled Pink Floyd's "Several Species of Small Furry Animals Gathered Together in a Cave and Grooving w/ a Pict"

A true rarity: Of the 9 song selections in the 1st set, each member is featured twice or more on lead vocals.

Review: Blistering.
