Review by dr32timmymeat

dr32timmymeat Fishman fans (Afishionados?) will absolutely lop up Fish's work on the ride cymbal during the early stages of this Bathtub Gin.

The Gin is legendary and understandably so, but grinding away under Trey's circular, feel-good riffing is Fishman, who's doing real dirty things to his ride cymbal. (Ride cymbals, for those unfamiliar, are the ones that make a sort of "ding" sound...)

On the official Live release, this nastiness starts at about 6:15 and accelerates right along with the jam. It ticks up a notch at about 8:30, and by the time Trey really lets loose, the rhythm infection has spread.

It's not the most technically impressive thing you'll hear from Fish, and this epic jam would soar into the clouds with or without this nuance. But boy, if you are a drummer or just dig Fish, this is must-hear stuff.
