User_35532_ Look, yea, set one is kinda a wash, but come on, if they had ONLY played this Simple and nothing else for this show, it’d still be at least a 3/5. Don’t miss out on this show, this Simple has that special sauce that meanders like a lot of the Europe 98 jams do, but has several different passages that develop into some amazing music and is a jamming style they don’t really run with for the rest of 98. The Mike’s Groove surrounding it is slick high energy type 1 playing.

Then we have the Haley’s which is again type 1, but is a long drawn out cow funk groove and peaks well.

Listening in on tape, this is closer to a 3.5-4/5, depending on if you can just get over the abbreviated length (which should be easy since there are plenty of other shows to listen to afterward).

I get it, tour closer, technical issues, it was probably a bummer to be there, but look at how they made the best of this show and what they managed to salvage. This is sitting at a 2.8 right now, putting it in league with Vegas 04, that ain’t right. Everyone should check out this set 2, it is still very much worth hearing.
