Xpanding_Man What Waxbanks said....read his review :) 1st set is par for the course for 1997 (i.e. it's extraordinary), but the 2nd set achieves a lift-off rarely seen in the states simply due to crowd noise. The intimate setting allows Stash to go VERY deep into various jams, including a hint of mind-left-body-like jamming, and into Mike-led ambiance bliss. And then the Llama, which is itself a "blues with a twist", gets even more twisted than most. Menacing describes it perfectly. And the Wading...sometimes that song in the right place can be transcendental, and this is one. It's a set closer, it's that good.

The encores are like the dosed icing on a cake. Insane night; wish I was there.
