Review by dr_strangelove

dr_strangelove I am baffled that this show is not rated higher. I am blown away with what I am hearing from the audience recordings. Stellar show, with great jams (noted in the show notes) as well as several great jams/playing not noted in the show notes. Highlights:

1) Julius: I usually find this song fairly straightforward and not too exciting, but this take has a hot f***ing peak around 5-6 minutes in and it refuses to let up
2) *Fee>Jam*: This is pure bliss heaven. At ~10:30, Trey hits this soaring theme and the jam propulses into this whirling, lite psychedelic bliss. Fish and Mike keep a steady throbbing beat while Trey just swirls. Its honestly brilliant. And that it came from Fee of all songs!
3) Stash: Hite a great, dark jam around 10 min. Brief but very notable
4)*Birds of a Feather*: Another stand out jam, especially if you like swirling psychedlia. This jam is particularly notable for the "If I Only Had A Brain" theme starting around 13 min. A gorgeous mess of happy, upbeat sounds
5)*Prince Caspian*: The outro jam is just so freaking great. It doesn't ever leave Type I territory, but the whole band perfectly navigates the energy to reach a land of majestic peaks. Extremely well-executed, and flows seamless into...
6)*Jesus Just Left Chicago*: Stellar playing by Page & Trey! Each takes an amazing, firey solo and burn the place down. Among my favorite versions of this tune
7) Tube: Slick. The groove they hit in the jam just has the swirling, airy '99 sound and its a blast
