BBrods 3.25/5

The band had a blast at this show as is evident with all the banter and laughter inbetween and during songs. I'm sure it was great to be there. But, from a listener's perspective on tape, the humor got a bit out hand and kind of took away from the performances.

The show kicks off with a good Fire and then I Didn't Know which began the whole humor fest. They bring up Richard Wright for vocals on I Didn't Know and then also Halley's Comet, both of which he sings horribly on. The harmonies suffer as a result and these are pretty hard versions to listen to. Light Up or Leave Me Alone is a big highlight and actually had a nice jam in it, almost veering into Type II category, but not quite. The rest of the show standard to below standard.

If you wanna hear the band goofing off with friends and are interested in how fun the scene was, this tape is worth a listen. Just don't expect to find quality versions of songs.
