n00b100 More a sum of its parts show than a cohesive statement, which makes the fact that it was divvied up into Slip, Stitch & Pass as a single disc rather than just released as a full concert make a bit more sense than it would appear at first blush. But oh golly, how good those parts are - the much-loved return of Cities, which would get taken out for a ride a few times in the year; the extraordinarily exciting Wolfman's, an early blueprint of the masterful "let's ride this wave" funk jams of the summer and fall; a killer segue into Jesus Just Left Chicago, which moves from silence to an explosive peak with tremendous ease; a Mike's Song that Mike's Songs its way along before collapsing into an eerie space and hilariously shaping into The End and then segues (!) into Lawn Boy (?!); and, finally, a typical up-and-atom Weekapaug that morphs into Can't You Hear Me Knocking 10/26/10 style and ends in that manner instead of with the typical Weekapaug close. 2/17 is probably the deeper show, but this has the highest highs of the Winter '97 tour, and if you don't want to hunt Slip, Stitch and Pass down the spreadsheet has a quite nice SBD for your listening pleasure.
