Review by DollarBill

DollarBill Second night of Fall tour continues with knocking off more rust, working the new material, weirdness, and a special guest. Not a bad recording.

Well, since Trey said it was his new favorite, why not open with Axilla? Ok version, just a little rough. You can hear some laughing on stage between songs. Right into ATR which shows some rust but, otherwise good. Suzy is even a little rusty sounding from Page as they get settled in, and even sounds like they forgot to sing. Trey plays through right into a equally rusty Rift. The begining and end suffer the most. Sloth follows suit with the rusty sound as does Reba although, a good jam shows they are getting there. Sparkle is pretty standard. Stash sounds tentative at first but also has a great jam including Linus and Lucy from Mike and Trey which Page shuts down. Lizards is pretty good as they seem more warmed up now. Mike may have blown something on his amp as you can faintly hear a discussion on stage. Memories was cut from the recording as the taper might have shut it down or edited because of the low levels. So as Bowie starts, it is inexplicably stopped for another I Walk the Line. For the second show in a row this is a weird call for Mike. Maybe making fun of him for the equipment troubles. Bowie resumes and sounds like Trey is teasing No One to Depend on by Santana for Mike's amp perhaps? Bowie is unfinished and has an abrupt ending to it most likely due to the equipment failure. Average first set.

A decent Chalk Dust opens second set but has a rusty sounding ending from Trey. Fluffhead continues in that vein but is pretty good for not having played it in a while. Tube gets busted out for only the second time this year. The rust shows from Page. YEM also has a few rough parts but, the vocal jam is great. FEFY comes out for the second show in a row but, this time no pedal steel. Not bad with the original creepy fade-out ending. Dinner is nice to hear but is also rusty. Right into a Hood which has Mike sounding rusty at times. Nice Fishman section which actually has two songs tonight! A regular Terrapin and another brand new Lengthwise complete with audience sing along. Too funny! And then to end the show, kind of, the Dude of Life comes out to sing the fourth and last Self with the boys.

The official encores are missing from the recording I heard. I'm sure the levels for Adeline were suspect and maybe the taper just packed it in early. Oh, well...

Pretty good show but, very rusty playing. It might take a while to get back into form.
