Review by Campster

Campster Finally getting around to reviewing a fine release.

Set I isn't all that notable. A perfectly enjoyable Jim kicks things off in fine fashion before a dull Farmhouse, Heavy Things segment. Roggae is pretty choice here, even more so when paired with a fiery but straightforward mid-set Antelope. Wading, Poor Heart & Sample is an adequate run of tunes, before the set highlight version of Free kicks in. This one has a nice patient funky jam and some good playing all around before a requisite scorcher of a solo from Big Red. Coil closes things down pleasantly, per usual.

Highlights: Roggae, Antelope pairing & Free, but a more or less forgettable set in retrospect.

Set II is a doozy. It kicks off with some straight ahead, bundle of fun dance grooves in the form or a wah wah Boogie On & a nice version of Jiboo.

The real meat follows however, with an absolutely scorching Gin jam that was the best version I'd never heard type of rager. This dissolves wonderfully into a long and drawn our 2001 for those who hadn't had enough dancing. The YEM that follows is another treat with a beautifully tranced out vamp from Trey driving this unique version into an a capella LDB. For a 3 song pairing, it's about as choice as it gets. Bold As Love always welcome.

Highlights: The whole set is a nice fun suite of music, but if you are pressed for time you can skip the opening two tunes.
