SlavePhan THE GOOD: This show started off the southern kick of the tour and the band put some extra umph in the bluegrass numbers - check out My Sweet One, which may be the fastest version ever. Speaking of speed, also take a listen to the hyper Axilla I which is followed by a break-neck Antelope. Basically, the whole first half of the second set is out of control, with the second half being somewhat more mellow.

THE BAD: In a time when the band had just 'figured out' SOAM, you'd think it'd have gotten better treatment here, but this version is just so-so compared to the monsters that would come later in the tour.

ETC: This show features the first version of Ya Mar with Mike scatting reggae-style. If you like the jam out of Demand on Hoist - take a listen to 7:20 on this SOAM - hear anything familiar? The band was energized in this show for sure, as there is lots of screeching and screaming throughout the show. Poor Heart, Ya Mar, and My Sweet One all have lots of screaming! If you're a fan of guests, listen to the Encore with Page's Dad in his first appearance with the band.

BOTTOM LINE: Southern leg adds extra spark to the bluegrass numbers, but average rest of show. 3.5/5
