Pjfmc The first thing you will notice about this show is yes, the bootleg is not the best quality and is extremely Page heavy, which really makes the fact that he is not playing a real piano stick out. But then... a rollicking Runaway J to kick things off and I don't care about the sound quality so much anymore.

Listening to the whole Forbin's... section, it really strikes me what an absolute oddity this band must have been in 1992. They're joking but they're not joking, the music is knotty but un-serious... they're doing a full band Wizard of Oz bit. This show started with straight-ahead All American bar-rock and now they are all shrieking "read the book" and half the audience is going nuts... incredible band.

Pen is good here. Well done. We cruise through prefectly fine Sloth and Landlady and then a high energy Fluff with an absolutely blistering finish. Seriously good. I always like Sparkle after Fluff. STASH. This is a great Stash, incredible for 92. A must hear. There are better Coils, it's fun to imagine the band surprised themselves with that Stash and needed a moment to recover. Golgi is such a great set closer.

Very enjoyable David B here to open set 2. Cavern is well done. Fast Ya Mar, foam Foam. Mike's Groove so good. Just listen to it. This is why people were already following this band and taping all of their shows. A very nice segue into Mango keeps the thrill going. Horn is well placed, then we get shenanigans and Glide into a great Llama closer. Encore is fun.

Maybe I'm just in the right mood today but this ones tips into hidden (if rough) gem territory for me.
