aybesea Well, we were on a roll. The last show of 85 (11/23/85) left me drooling for more! Spectacular show, that one. But this one? Not so much.

Let's start with... yes... the recording is pretty bad. But that's not nearly enough to deter me from a great show. I've been listening to bootlegs for decades and my ears have learned to listen right past that shit.

The problem here is that the show really isn't very good. Too much slop and not enough creativity lead to a dull, lifeless affair on top of a shitty recording. Yep... that adds up to a 2 from me.

All of that said, the YEM is fascinating and worth listening to at least once. It's not very good... but it is very different! I love listening to the evolution of this stuff, and that makes this an essential listen.
