Review by mantecatweeze

mantecatweeze I can't believe that this show is rated so low. I lost the cds to this show years ago but it has always been one of my favorites. I had a driving job at the time and would listen to this show over and over again.

Highlights for me are the SOAM to end set 1 (sloppy, sloppy, good!) and the Mike's groove with a Mountains filling. I absolutely love Mountains in the Mist and personally think this song does not get played enough. I love the placement of the song and it reminds me a bit of Feels Like Rain from Grateful Dead's Without a Net album.

The best part of the show for me is the Groove into What's the Use?. What's the Use is very underplayed. I would take this song at each and every show.

Friday encore didn't do it for me but seriously, this show is a must listen. I know there are better 03 shows like 2-28 and 8-3 but 1-4 should at least be in the conversation with great shows from this year. Give it a listen before disagreeing!
