spreaditround SET 1: Poor Heart: Standard. >

AC/DC Bag: This one definitely has something extra, properly ripped – very impressive – Trey keeps taking it higher and higher. Whew buddy! >

All Things Reconsidered, Bouncing Around the Room: Standard. >

Reba: Played extremely fast out of the gate. This is a really good version. Not quite great because it doesn’t have that signature moment or peak. But great all band jamming and they just keep going and going when they could have wrapped it a minute or two earlier.

Character Zero, Strange Design: Standard. >

Taste: Awesome Taste!

I Didn't Know: Because tease by The Beatles at 1:58.

Sample in a Jar: Standard.

Run Like an Antelope: This jam is white hot, extremely intense version. Definitely a must hear!

SET 2: Also Sprach Zarathustra: Really, really long intro jam here – first notes are not even struck until 8:30. Awesome jamming. All-timer 2001. >

Sparkle: Why? >

David Bowie: A very cool theme is constructed right around the ten-minute mark. They don’t stay with that much more than 45 seconds or so, but it does catapult them into an intense, high velocity jam. They crush this one folks, highly recommended!

Day in the Life: Standard. >

You Enjoy Myself: The Note is perfect. Loud and strong. Page leads a long funk jam while Trey is on his drum kit. Some cool effects in here but the Chairman is definitely throwing down in here. 12:20 Trey back on the doc and his intent is immediately clear: seek and destroy. This eventually leads into an enormous peak along with a sustained note from Trey that melts like butter into B&D.

Loving Cup > Suzy Greenberg: Pretty cool segment, Cup obviously rocks and the transition to SG is cool. Suzy jam has a little extra heat on this night, Page really rocks it out.

ENCORE: Ginseng Sullivan: 7 times played as an encore, and this was the second to last time. They also played this at the last show in Spokane and like at that show, Trey admits Norman Blake was the author of Ginseng, not Tim O’ Brien. >

Cavern: Standard.

Summary: Definitely a solid show. This and Vancouver by now have helped ease the memory of Spokane. Reba, Antelope, 2001, Bowie, and YEM all have replay value. Look at that list! This show is sneaky good. Let your guard down for a second, throw this one and let me know. Am I wrong? I like this one a little more than .net which is at 4/5. I am good at 4.1 out of 5.
