Review by TheEmu

TheEmu This is the recording of most of set II of the 2/4/91 show, which circulates with the date of 9/17/90. The rest of the 2/4/91 show is currently unavailable on the spreadsheet.

The recording cuts in at the end of Antelope, with Trey quoting "Fixing to Die." Cavern has an amusing moment when Trey forgets the lyrics and totally "mmmmm mmmmms" his way through the brothel wife verse. I actually think the Fishin' Hole tease from Page at the start of I Am Hydrogen is kinda cool, as it fits right in before Trey starts the melody. A somewhat messy Hydrogen is followed by a short but good Weekapaug, and unfortunately, that may be the highlight of the set. Mike's Song is a feedback wank, and while I was excited to hear My Sweet One, Paul & Silas, La Grange and Rocky Top with the fiddle, the results were surprisingly average. (I hate Paul & Silas without the harmony at the end, it feels unfinished and makes me sad.) It's nice that Fishman likes the Cars and Kuroda's nickname is "Big Hands" but it's not enough to pop this up to three stars, IMO, so I'm just going to stick with two.
