Review by dr_strangelove

dr_strangelove Good show. In addition to the highlights below, The Curtain With and YEM are well-played:

1) David Bowie: Son, this version cooks, especially towards the end. The energy built up in guitars solo is stored and he unleashes in...

2) Jesus Just Left Chicago: BOY, I was trying to work and now I have to stop what I am doing to rage. I listened to this lil smoky twice and both times, Trey's fire solo got my "hand in the air, shaking head down, foot stompin'" reflex to kick in. Show highlight for sure. Oh damn, and I am just now reading that this was the first known performance?!

3) Whipping Post: Always a rager, they really take the middle segment of this one for a ride. Trey and Mike dominate the middle jam, they reel it back in for a peppery return to the final verse/chorus, and then for the outro the whole band just flays. Trey mostly holds the groove while Page, Fish, and Mike turn up the flame. Great version (to be honest, I can't recall a time I didn't go nuts for this tune).
