Review by DollarBill

DollarBill There are definitely tape speed issues on this recording of another average fall '89 show. It seems like it took the band awhile to warm up. Mike's groove was just not locking in to my ears, although; check out Mike's great intro to Weekapaug. Lots of new-ish material presented here with decent performances of Gin, Foam, Oh Kee Pa, and My Sweet One. The new and improved Reba arrangement sounds much smoother. YEM is ok, but has a great jam at the end. The newly added Frankenstein cleans up the first set. They just didn't sound very locked in with Fishman yet.

Too bad it's an abbreviated second set because it sounds like they started to really get it together with an ok Sloth, and a solid Bag. The newly reworked Tela was a bit rough, and a smoking Bowie gets cut off on the recording and ended the show from what I've read here.

Check this one out if you need to hear the first reworked Reba and Tela.
