Review by Flavaham

Flavaham I wasn't at this show and haven't listened. I'm more reviewing the people who are reviewing. First, I think people who get the webcast are entitled to post their views here. They paid their money and had an experience based on the music of the band. Why should they not share their experience with us?? Makes no sense.

Which brings me to my next point - the reason these reviews are fun for me to read is that everyone gets something different from each show. What you thought was perfect might be the same thing that made it boring for others. I was at the 11/17/97 show in Denver which is the highest rated show on here. I had it as one of my worst at the time. It was the first show I ever saw solo. I had just moved to Denver and didn't know anyone. I also was chasing set lists at the time. Given those variables, had I written a review I might have torn it to shreds. I mean...Johnny B. Goode?? Who wants to hear that?? I've listened to the show again and picked up on a lot that I missed, but the point is, you don't know what state of mind people are in the leads to great or bad shows. Your seats (or standing room), level of intoxication, people around you, line of sight, sound, chatty Kathy's around you, etc...all play into it.

If someone else had a different experience than you, whether at the show or on the couch, why not take what they say about it and try to see it from that perspective?
