spreaditround Attended! Lot scene was fun/small and tickets were on the ground!

SET 1: My Sweet One: Valentine’s Day – get it?

The Cover of 'Rolling Stone': “Now it's all designed to blow our minds - But our minds won't really be blown - Like the blow that'll gitcha when you get your picture - On the cover of the Rollin' Stone” - I had no idea what this was until the chorus. >

Chalk Dust Torture: Standard, good jam.

Fee: Cool jam, effects heavy. Very heady. First of many great jams of the winter tour! ->

Taste: Trey DESTROYS this in the late 8’s and early 9’s. Trilling and machine gun. Sweet! Ending is iffy.

Bathtub Gin: So, I cashed everything in that I could to do this entire tour. Job, everything. At 15:54 in this Gin, I knew I had made the right choice. 19 years later, I look back and love the decision. Incredible Gin, the definition of hose jamming. Incredible.

Heavy Things: LOL, they earned the right to play this one. Standard version.

Golgi Apparatus: Standard.

SET 2: Possum: Honestly? This is a great version for this era. It smokes.

Walls of the Cave: Absolute powerhouse, an all timer to be sure. Love the last 7 minutes of this. Amazing headspace. ->

Carini: Pretty rough segue out of WOTC.

All of These Dreams: Standard.

Limb By Limb: Big, old droning wall of sound built up in this one.

The Oh Kee Pa Ceremony: Well, this was certainly unexpected. >

AC/DC Bag: Stupid stage crasher “I love you Missy!!!” In the late 5’s they seem committed to taking this one Type II. Really cool stuff in here especially from Mike and Fish. This just never develops into too much though. ->

Prince Caspian: I remember being so disappointed when this started up and eventually realizing it would close the set, what a buzz kill. Out of the gate it is played at a very slow speed.

ENCORE: Loving Cup: Played very slow. Standard other than that.

Replay value/Summary: Fee, Taste, Gin, Walls. Not sure what happened in that second set. All downhill after Walls. But, there are some significant highlights with two all timers – Gin and Walls. Pretty good tour opener. I would go with a 3.8 out of 5. AC/DC Bag is a charted version but I just don’t see/hear it. Would never actively seek it out myself or recommend it.
