Review by thelot

thelot The sound quality on set 1 is top notch! However, set 2&3 are a bit sped up making the band sound like Alvin and the Chipmunks. I’m sure it’s been corrected on one of the four sources that circulate, but alas the version on Relisten has this issue.

The band was firing on all cylinders this evening! I wish the Bowie to kick off set 2 was available because I’m sure it kills…it was just one of those nights! The Amherst audience is absolutely eating it up! From what I know “Full Moon at the Zoo” were psychedelic parties. Set 1 highlights include On Your Way Down, YEM->Wilson->Peaches and the first full version of Divided Sky that circulates. It’s possible the first full version was played on 8/13 but no recording is known to circulate. Set 2 has a nice Whipping Post albeit a little short. The Curtain > AC/DC Bag from set 3 is worth checking out. The Bag has no introduction and is laid back. Trey takes a minimalist approach to his playing in the jam with some tasteful teases throughout. One of the best versions I’ve heard thus far. Unfortunately, the rest of set 3 is cut from the tapes that circulate. This would make for another fine release!
