Review by DollarBill

DollarBill This is a nice trip back in time to hear how the boys cut their teeth at Nectar's. The recording leaves much to be desired, but what can you expect for a 1987 show?

I pretty much agree with the other review already posted here. First set was decent, although I didn't find the Alumni segment through YEM and Sparks to be all that tight in my opinion.

Second set seemed better and it was fun for me to hear one of the old arrangements of Fluff. It was really strange to hear the first version of Ride Captain Ride, as it doesn't even come close to Page's voice we know today. Dave's is some nice classic weirdness and the whole back end of this set is petty good. Corinna was tight and then it just got funky! There were different lyrics in Camel Walk than I'm used to hearing as well.

It's worth a listen just for the funky second set, which is the only reason I'm bumping this up to three stars.
