Review by phrench

phrench My favorite night of the run, full of classics (I feel a bit guilty to love a show partially because it contains so many old songs, but hey...).

The first set contains nothing outstanding, but it's very good music all along, especially with a Stash and an Antelope. And also 555. And The Line. I love The Line. Sorry about that. All in all, although on paper it doesn't seem particularly interesting, it is extremely well played. You can't help but feel good.

The second set is a massive Carini jam which dissolves into a darkly beautiful 20YLater, a twofold Piper jam with Page finally taking the spotlight on the B3, a great new tune with an intense solo from Trey (phrygian-ish mode on a 15/16 beat, it could be a great jam vehicle SOaM-like), a straightforward Gin, which is always a good thing, an extremely fun[n|k]y 2001 and powerful Cavern.

New songs, massive jams, great energy and a lot of fun: this opening run is no warm-up. Or if it is, well...
