Review by kipmat

kipmat Set 2 of this show was another one of my first cassette tapes. The playing here is outrageously good, and I listened to this tape quite a lot back in the day. Last week's yemconvo on twitter featured the topic, "What is the best show you think Trey Anastasio has ever played?" I considered this show as an answer, although waxbanks is correct about Trey's struggles during SOAMule. This performance features Trey playing skillfully and manically, though "soulfully" would not apply yet. But if you add the megaphone madness, heavy metal screaming, a timely Harpua narration, Barracuda teases, and a monumental Harry Hood, you might a great Trey show. I can't think of too much more that I could ask from him at one gig.

Noob confession: this was one of the first two or three versions of Run Like An Antelope I heard on tape. The next several versions of Antelope that I heard left me disappointed that they didn't extend the intro or go bonkers in the jam like they did at this show. :)
