Review by happyhappyohmytela

happyhappyohmytela Thank you for the reviews, everyone. Months after this show I am still re-listening to it constantly. Starting with these guys on 10.22.96, this show was absolutely top 3 all around. I was Page side floor and the energy was better than its been in a while.

Just a couple of points to add to what has already been written about this show:
CK5 completely nailed Guelah with low blue & white spiraling spot lamps like a look-out party. It was smooth and mysterious.
Trey amps up his voice with excitement during Chalkdusts' "he plugs the distress tube uptight!..." They were having so much fun up there.
The meaningful sequence of Whole Lotta to HaHahaHa to Walk Away was carefully planned and perfectly executed, and
The Wolfman vocal jam was unexpected and a delicious treat.

I will, before I close, disagree with some of what has been written about Show of Life sucking the energy from The Hall. "Thank you all" encapsulated the moment for me and with its pace you just knew it wasn't the end of Set II. Numberline was pretty tore up by the time they were done with it- Trey beating the solo into oblivion. I remember screaming "numberline!?" in puzzled amazement with how they could end a set with that, just ungluing the crowd. The popping high notes could be felt within the atoms.

Truly a great show...this is a must listen selection---but only to be played in its entirety in natural sequence (Dr's orders). Put some time aside for this one and check out HarpuaFSB's HD video on You Tube of the entire night.
