Review by westbrook

westbrook The first set is pretty much standard fare for the tour, although the opening Ya Mar seemed a little off to me. Trey didn't really put much into his closing solo. On the other hand, the second set is great and includes a few must-hear jams. Reba gets the rare call as the opener and proves to be a very powerful version. The next two songs are straightforward before a beast of a Mike's Groove. This being a Fall 95 show, it's not really surprising that this Mike's Song jams gets nasty, and the transition to the Breathe jam is smooth. The crowd is audibly excited for the Pink Floyd jamming, but the lyrics never come in and we are left with a Breathe jam, if not the song in the flesh. A minor point. Weekapaug, Suzy and Crossroads to end the set are all hot. The > to Crossroads begins when Trey plays the Crossroads lick in one of the short vamps before the refrain in Suzy and then the whole band quickly moves into the song. It's a cool moment.

Reba and Mike's Groove are must-hear.
Average first set. Excellent second set. 4 stars.
