Review by JackeeTreehorn

JackeeTreehorn I fear this show will be destined for obscurity in the wake of the incredible previous night at Blossom.

Here's a quick breakdown as I experienced it:

INNYLTB - Standard opener. Well played. People were still filing in as they hit the stage.
Everything's Right - Everything was right about this. Great jam. Really goes places.
Kill Devil Falls - This one has been on my wish-list for a while. Really happy to get this and it exceeded my expectations. I would've been happy with a solid standard version, but this got the full treatment! Another really nice jam - not to be missed!
Camel Walk - pretty standard - always welcome. (who's gonna complain about a Camel Walk?!?!)
Stash - ANOTHER great jam! Really shows how they've matured since the mid 90's. Their controlled chaos lends to a beautifully constructed climax.
Bouncin is always Bouncin
My Friend is always great. Never disappoints. CK5 found his stride here.
David Bowie - this version stood out for me. Seemed a little above par for the times. They seemed to give it a little extra sauce.
Carini - very bright and funky compared to the dark psychedelic versions normally associated with this song. Fizzled down to a slow funk that I was sure (maybe just hoping) was going to segue into a HYHU and possible more hopefully into a Purple Rain. Not the case. Still... ANOTHER great jam!
NMINML - the hits kept coming and didn't stop here! Yet another great jam!
Twist - Nice version. Builds to a nice peak.
Drift While Your Sleeping - Standard version, but always nice.
Trey hands his pick to Jovi before exiting the stage.
Bug encore - no surprise. Solid version.
Possum - bit of a surprise. I thought they were gonna leave after Bug. Page's piano section was a highlight. Really fun and playful. Trey brings it home and adds a little more heat. Seemingly backing up and running over that poor dead possum a couple more times to end the show with an exclamation!

Don't pass this show over!
There's a lot of really quality jamming here!
