Review by dr_strangelove

dr_strangelove Overall, this is a pretty strong show, especially the second set. Highlights:

1) The Curtain With: I always love a Curtain, especially With. Beautiful execution

2) Cities: Nothing too revelatory, but the ending has a cool whammy jam if you are into that kind of thing

3) Waves: The worst part of this jam is its length. I could have enjoyed many more minutes of this. Starts with a throbbing insistence from Mike and Fishman, swept quickly up by Trey into ethereal bliss. Towards the end it gets a little more raging without losing its blissful quality. Unfortunately, its only the beginnings of a truly super jam. Fortunately, it does give way to...

4) Carini: And boy does this Carini get to some very cool places without delay! Very cool plunko jam emerges from Carini's heavy metal jaws and this is dirty funk reserved for the darkness of night. Lots of trippy effects put to good use. Hard to not shake around to this one.

5) BDTNL: I have to agree with the show notes. Good type I jam.

6) Ghost: Silly lyric changes aside, I could maybe understand why this jam is overlooked as it is in the meat of set II and that its kind of a heady, psychedelic meandering rather than party rock. However, its perfect for your early morning coffee and by the time the caffeine kicks in, this motherfucker peaks into a beautiful sunrise hose. Page is particularly great during the hose part of the jam. Good stuff.
