Bob_Loblaw Slightly building to form

This show is the first I've heard where there seems to be some kind of foundation below the guys. Although playing is still fairly sloppy and armature, there seems to be a visible germ of what will become of this band. Trey slowly moves more and more into the forefront. And when he plays you can actually start to since the familiarity of it.

Scarlet -> Fire -> Fire on the Mountain although a cool idea is pretty dang sloppy in execution which for this period is ok. Don't Want You No More is a nice showcase of the guy's playing and ability at the time. And yes even in 1984 they could still do a pretty nice segue into Cities. Slave is played fairly well and unlike most debuts at this time, it's very interesting to hear that it will not change much at all. Not big on Dude of Life appearances and this is no different. But it's still cool to hear Skippy and Fluffhead in their infancy.

Another slow eyes. This one is definitely more pretty than the one before it.
