thelot Decent SBD recording for Set 1 with a nice overall mix. However, there are numerous minor level adjustments throughout but it’s not too distracting. The vocals are a little hot in spots and are adjusted here and there. Set 2 on the other hand has a handful of extra Cass generations in it’s lineage. This makes for a pretty muddy source compared to Set 1.

Things start out strong with a Fluffhead, Esther opener. The great flow continues with Mike’s Groove. Donna Lee and Antelope round out a short but nice looking first set. However, nothing noteworthy takes place even though the set list flow was spot on.

Set 2 kicks off with Golgi. Caravan is always a welcomed treat. The Sloth>Possum combo seen numerous times in ‘89 makes an appearance again. This time without the composed outro seen segueing out of Sloth at the time. Rare Lizards set 2 closer. Carolina and a surprise Whipping Post in the encore slot. Last seen at Penny Post on 1/25, but unfortunately no recording circulates of that show. The last circulated version took place on 5/13/89 in Syracuse. Nice to hear again, but the second jam doesn’t get as experimental as the versions heard throughout ‘88 and ‘89.
