Catapult was performed twice during the Mule Duel; first by Mike, and then by Page solo on the theremin. Melt contained In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida teases and Taste included a Norwegian Wood tease. Talk featured Trey on acoustic guitar. Trey teased Rhapsody in Blue in Ya Mar.

Review by forbin1

forbin1 Set I:

Jim: Nothing fancy..standard opener

PYITE: Had a nice slower than usual intro..

Bag: Has a nice little jam in it..doesn't stray away from the Bag theme though...some nice guitar work by Trey towards the end...

Fee: No microphone..good, fun tune...

SOAMule: Another fun song..Page does some nice work on the keys in this one..and worked nicely into Catapult...

Catapult: Mike having fun with this as well as Page breaking out the theremin..and back into SOAMule..

SOAMelt: Has a nice In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida by Trey in the beginning..gets a bit dark..has a nice pace to it throughout..some solid playing by Page can be found in this as well...

Talk: Gives the set a nice breather..some nice work by Trey on acoustic..

Taste: Still a relatively new song..which was just starting to become explored..this version is pretty tame...nice little Norwegian Wood tease by Trey..but check out the '97 ones to get a good "taste"..

Suzy: A relatively quick version but well Suzy should be...Page kills it as usual..Nice choice to end the set I thought..

Set I highlights:

SOAMule and SOAMelt

Set II:

CDT: Pretty straightforward..nothing out of the ordinary..

Gin: Pretty decent version..nothing too exploratory..keeps the set going in a good direction..

Rift: Standard..

Caspian: Still a relatively new song and not too explored at the time..played well though..

Ya Mar: Some nice organ work by Page..and a nice little solo by Trey..

Tweezer: Gets a nice groove going..some solid bass by Mike..and some soaring peaks by Trey which come back down very nicely...slow down jam to end it..

Fluffhead: Keeps the set going at a nice pace..nice outro playing by Trey...

Life on Mars: perfect placement..slows down the pace nicely before going into Reprise...

Tweezer Reprise: One of the best ways to encore or end a set imo...


Possum: Pretty decent version..Some nice work by Trey before bringing it back all honesty..have you ever heard a bad version?

Carolina: Standard...crowd gets really into it..

Highlights of Set II:

Ya Mar, Tweezer, Fluffhead

I'd give this show 3 out of 5 stars..
