Review by TheEmu

TheEmu Definitely some decent stuff here. The highlight IMHO is the YEM, where Trey channels his inner Marty McFly and goes abso-fucking-lutely shred crazy! Seriously, it's like a shred & drums segment - I can almost see the people staring with jaws hanging open. May be a little too much - but your kids are gonna rage it. Unfortunately there's a cut before this resolves and we skip to the end of the jam/pre vocal jam. Dang it. Three stars for this, but take a minute and listen to Trey go nuts.

Review by thelot

thelot This source isn’t great due to multiple cassette generations in it’s lineage. On a positive note, there’s no pitch issues!

Not much to really review for set 1 as it’s pretty straightforward. Trey tried to recreate the magic of last nights YEM but came up short. Unfortunately there’s a tape flip in the middle of the jam and picks back up before heading into the B&D section. The band blows the drop into the arrival section of Fluffhead. However, they recover and this flub inspires Trey to add a some extra mustard to his solo. Gin had a little bit more added to the ending. Weekapaug was solid but didn’t vary much from current versions.

The_Ghost Pretty decent recording of this show available, which is nice. I'm going 4 stars because I am considering the time and only a single set. YEM is the highlight of the show, but don't sleep on that Weekapaug and I always appreciate Fee. Other than those I'd say the Fluffhead is a good listen. I mean I like the whole show but if you're just in it for the highlights start with YEM then Weekapaug then Fluffhead.
