Review by CreatureoftheNight

CreatureoftheNight I totally agree with Frankster. 7-7 and 7-8 were probably the worst shows I ever attended. The band's jamming seemed to have little direction or focus. There were times when the band walked out on stage without a set list and relied on the moment to tell them what to play. Sometimes this worked magically. Not so much on these nights. The lots were marred by nasty vibes and even nastier consumption. This was the only tour I saw needles in large numbers. What's the Use? (which I love) as a second song in the first set? That kinda said it all.

On the other hand, this was the first time I heard Derek Trucks. He made Trey look like a little school boy, shredding through the encore like there was no tomorrow. (Was Trey holding back for the kid?) That goes to show that even at the worst shows I have seen, there were still nuggets of magic.
