Review by westbrook

westbrook The first set is quite short and unspectacular aside from yet another '94 Stash you'll want to hear. The second set is a big improvement over the first and circulates in SBD quality so there's no reason not to give it a go. Wilson > Bowie is a great combo to get things moving and also begins the "Lion Sleeps Tonight" theme of the set. I found Page to be the instigator of many interesting ideas in this Bowie jam but Trey also gets his licks in before the end. Wolfman's starts another mini segment of the set that runs through Hood. It's still a little strange to hear an early Wolfman's with its lower key and lack of a jam but it's a nice rendition. Peaches is mostly clean aside from a brief slip-up from Trey. The Lion Sleeps Tonight is integrated smoothly into this strong Hood. The ending of the song is cut off but you get the whole jam. It's at this point in the show where you might be expecting a breather, but it keeps rolling all the way through Axilla II, McGrupp, and a really hot Possum that fits in a bunch of teases. Possum concludes the real meat of the show from a jamming standpoint but Purple Rain sung by Fishman is charming in its own way. During BBFCFM Fish has to tell somebody to "get off my fucking riser" which he then apologizes for saying in front of his mother. Funny stuff to end a good show.
