Review by waxbanks

waxbanks Look at that first set! What an energetic series of songs. But the second scoop is the sweetest, as usual, and what a spectacular second set it is. A punchy Drowned gives way to some gnarly party funk, which *seamlessly* transforms into C'n'P. Fishman can't wait to dive into that Talking Heads tune, and it's a fine version, modulating in midstream before distilling beautifully down to Joy. Then you've got the weirdest Tweezer of 2009, a joyous segue from Fluffhead into Piper (listen for the full-band DEG jam amidships - aah, a bit of the ol' days in modern times), and a lovely bit of solo Page during the cooldown into ADITL. One of the best second sets of 2009 to my mind.
