Review by Bob_Loblaw

Bob_Loblaw A very strong show. You can tell by how into the fans sound.

Wilson starts things off pretty sloppy. Luckily CDT comes in and gets things back on track. LxL has some nice hose and intensity in its jam. BOTT is strong, as is Camel Walk. Possum is top notch and a great way to cap the set.

The 2nd set is absolutely fantastic and one of the very best of '99. Sand gets the improv going quickly. The jam starts off with siren effects and gets very spacey and trippy. Lot's of peaks and valleys. Mango Song is always welcomed and this version is beautiful! Wading has some cool extended spaciness going into Tweezer. Tweezer gets weird pretty early and collapses into a black hole sucking you in. For a little while it has the feel of a Mikes Song Jam. It then explodes into a full blown beauty jam that grows more and more beautiful by the second, they were truly firing on all cylinders. Jim concludes the set on a high note and is very strong.

Bittersweet Motel and Tweeprise? Meh.

This show is another one of those that is so close to a perfect 5. But the first set in my opinion isn't strong enough and the encore is rather drool (unless you're a bittersweet motel fan that is).
