Bob_Loblaw Best 2nd Set of '96?

The first set although not top heavy over the epic 2nd set still has some treats. Nice peaky CDT and a nice 1-2 punch of their new songs Free and Theme. Both songs have excellent and somewhat experimental midsections that make them stand out. Bold as Love is always a great set cap.

Disease is one of the best I've heard. Not just the jam but the way the song is played in general. Trey immediately steps up in this jam. A rocking groove ensues and it grows more dark and chaotic by the second. This all may sound average but they are truly firing on all cylinders. It has a nice subtle -> Into JJLC that as always is top notch. Scent of a Mule continues the experimental jammy feel of the set. It is stretched out much longer than usual and is bizarre in the best possible way. And after all this Tweezer kicks in? For it's fairly short length it packs a huge punch with a nice thrashing jam that sneaks into a quick Sweet Emotion jam. The -> back into DWD Reprise is excellent, they have a little trouble speeding back up but overall it works out great.

Waste -> Tweeprise is an average encore.

Overall a pretty normal 1st set and Encore with an absolutely fantastic 2nd set makes this show close to legendary.
