Review by TheEmu

TheEmu This show isn't as tight as some, especially the second set, in which Reba, Foam, YEM and Divided Sky all have mild to semi-significant flubbage. The Possum is fairly blistering, and the Destiny is quite a bit tighter than the last one I listened to (9/22/90). Beyond that, though, I think this show is average at best, including a Bowie that kind of limps and staggers in sections before finishing strong, and the Divided Sky encore (how many DS encores are out there?) where they seem to have lost a lot of energy. Not a bad show, just nothing spectacular. For highlights, I guess I'd say the Bowie and YEM, as well as the announcement from Trey that if you want to learn how to really dance to The Lizards, you need to watch Chevy Chase in European Vacation. Three stars straight up.

Review by thelot

thelot Decent SBD source available for this show. Big thanks to John Redmond once again for the source tape!

The first half of Golgi is cut to start the show. Landlady has some static throughout. Possibly a loose cable? The issue is fixed by Esther. Following Lizards Trey comments that if you really want to learn how to dance to The Lizards you should watch National Lampoon’s European Vacation “When Chevy Chase gets up on…watch it you’ll see what I mean!” lol Let’s hear it for Chevy Chase! This was the third version of Destiny and the first SBD recording available. Good version. Sloth went out to the blackboard writer. Well done blackboard writer guy! A nice high energy Uncle Pen leads into a smokin’ Bowie set closer with a little Uncle Pen tease during the hi-hat hijinx section.

The Reba opener gets a little messy a couple verses in. They recover and deliver a fairly straightforward version. The composed section of Foam is a little shaky in spots but has great energy all in all. Trey didn’t use the megaphone for Fee after using it for the first time the other night at The Haunt. A rippin’ version of Tweezer is followed up nicely with a spunky Magilla. After Cavern Trey takes a moment to thank the crew. It’s pretty amazing that they only had four guys on the crew at this point! (Doc, Toph, Peter Schall and Andy Fischbeck) They follow this up with a wonderful top notch version of YEM to close out the set. Divided Sky is the perfect choice for an encore to wrap up a great set. This was also the very first Divided Sky encore.
