Review by Bob_Loblaw

Bob_Loblaw This show is fairly mediocre IMO but still some strong playing.

Divided Sky is played near flawlessly great version. There's some really short versions of Wolfmans and Wilson (among many other short songs). If I could is a really strong version, the harmonizing is pretty great. Julius has a very strong guitar solo.

DWD stays type one for a while before they sink into a nice groove led by Page and Fish. It gets really weird and interesting before it is ripchorded into It's Ice. The Haileys>Somewhere over the Rainbow>Waste sequence is bizarre but interesting. The little acoustic set of songs is fun but IMO should have been in the 1st set or played as an encore. Amazing grace is one of the best versions I've heard them do. Mike's is pretty shredtastic (as are most in 1996).

Cavern is cool as an encore considering it's red rocks but it's pretty straightforward.

This show has an awkward feel and feels very "songy" at times to me. But it does have some great highlights.
