Review by DollarBill

DollarBill On to Ohio! Tenth show of Fall tour and the only show at Denison ever. Really good energy tonight coupled with a great sounding recording where you can hear a little crowd, and a little stage banter between band members. Of course it's a good show, they officially released this one!

Standard start with a solid Landlady to get things going. Right into a nice and tight My Sweet One. Melt is also good and tight. Nice jam and no messing around tonight. They are really going from one song into another with almost no pauses. Bouncing is pretty standard, maybe a few spots from Page. A little sub-par. Rift is cooking tonight, but still a little loose at times. Not quite tight. Cavern is good but, also has a few spots in it. Fluff is good for the most part but, each member has their own rough spot. Trey says thank you as Fish leads them right into a ripping Maze. Is there any other kind? Page rocks as usual but, there is a little weakness in the hand over to Trey and also Trey rushes the end making it awkward. Adeline was cut from the recording I heard and makes sense with all the shushing of the times. Mike's is good, and has one of the first times I can remember them going to an F in the jam like they are going into Simple! Not to be for a few more years. Hydrogen is better tonight but, still has a tentative feel to it. Very uncertain. Weekapaug starts off with what sounds like Page tuning his piano. I read that Trey was rollerblading through the crowd so that might explain it. Anyway, good jam in Weekapaug and a great way to end a good set.

After a brief discussion between Page and Trey we have a rocking Axilla to start off second set. Still has a little of that uncertain new song feel so far but a great jam even though Page used the piano for his solo. Right into a Curtain which catches Mike a little off guard at first but, ends up being ok. Chalkdust is it's normal rocking self. Not bad. My Friend's intro has gotten better and tonight is a really good song overall. Nice ending, a la Frank Oz. After a brief explanation from Trey, ATR is pretty tight and well played. Maybe just a pinch off here and there. You can hear Trey call out Uncle Pen and they proceed to flub the intro a little. Not too bad, and very up tempo. So you can hear the call out for Llama and Fish and Trey joke about something which causes them to completely blow the intro to an otherwise rocking version. Page then starts the usual HYHU joke to bring out Henrietta! Super swinging, fast Love You tonight. Funny band intros and solos including a great vacuum solo. Page continues teasing HYHU on what sounds like a Casio keyboard before a very rusty sounding Dinner. Really rusty, right into what I thought would be a Bowie but, turned into the first of only two Baby Elephant Walks. Introduced by Trey and again features the Casio sounding keyboard. A standard sounding Bowie follows up and makes for a good set closer.

Only time for one encore tonight and GTBT does the job. Trey rips it, and Page digs in for some soulful vocals. Well done.

Really good show overall, great energy, and like I said earlier they officially released this one so, it must be good right? Check it out.
