Review by TheEmu

TheEmu First thing I will mention is that the source tape is pretty sped up on this recording, so you have a pretty decent chipmunk thing going on, which is annoying at times. There are also in TMWSIY, Foam, Mockingbird, etc. Oh, and while the Golgi is noted as missing here, it sounds like there might be something else before Possum, which kind of slowly gears its way up to the main riff. But there are also some good moments in that first set, like Avenu Malkenu, Trey's soloing in Mockingbird, and that same Possum build up.

The money, here, is towards the end of the recording, in that second set. The On Your Way down is absolutely FEROCIOUS, and after a good AC/DC Bag, they unleash a YEM that will melt your damn face so completely that your grandchildren will call you Ol' Drippy! Straight. Freaking. Fire. Not only does Trey DESTROY the whole bar with his playing in the main jam, on top of that they vocal jam their way back into a jam which then morphs into an awesome Camel Walk. HOT!!

There's no way I could feel right about giving out only 3 stars after a performance like that. I gotta go 4 stars here. CHECK OUT THE YEM. PLEASE.
