Review by Dressed_In_Gray

Dressed_In_Gray This was one of my earliest shows on tape, as I asked for shows with horns. Grippo and Remminton help to heat up the second set which includes some great Trey banter when they flub SOAM, a slick debut of In A Hole (which should instead be played every time Trey calls My Soul), and a hot Antelope.

Other reasons to pick up the show include the Harpua opener which, after the second chorus immediately cuts to Bundle Of Joy, and then right into Forbin. YEM has some fire, and Reba takes a leisurely pace as opposed to the breakneck meters found a decade later.

My favorite moment is at the end of the show when Trey, while introducing the horns, decides to rib The Jonny B Fishman Jazz Ensemble and their move from one bar to a Radisson hotel bar with 25 TVs on the wall. I just love to hear them give each other s#!t in the old days.

This is a great 80s show to pick up.
