Review by thelot

thelot Sound quality is decent enough. It sounds like the pitch may be a hair sharp. Almost sounds like the source cassette may have sat on the car dash for a summer or two.

The show itself is pretty strong. However, most of the action takes place during the second set. Set 1 was highlighted by a strong Weekapaug, Possum and Sky. Set 2 was fantastic but the guest “Hijack” during I Didn’t Know was like nails on a chalkboard. I actually kind of enjoyed the last time Eyeburn came out on 3/12/89 at Nectars, but this time was kind of annoying. I Didn’t Know I was that far gone…”yes you did!” lol One thing of note about I Didn’t Know that’s not listed is that they say Pardon me Daubs instead of Doug. Another incredible version of Harpua tonight! Somewhat of a sister version to the last one played at The Zoo on 4/20. Unfortunately, If I Don’t Be There by Morning is missing from the recording. YEM is a must hear, as is the Slave->Esther combo. Slave is unfinished and Esther is perfect if not for the botched ending. Antelope to follow is also a must hear. Even La Grange and Bold as Love slay! Check it out!
