9/13/2000 - **** 1/4

Just what I needed after that piece of shit earlier today. The Stone was awesome, the set lacked any sort of predictability, Too Much fake into Ants caught me off guard. Jimi is perhaps top 5 all time, Bela makes even me enjoy Lie In Our Graves. The band is pretty tight, the encore is very unpredictable, yet effective. Definitely a special show and one of the best of the tour. Drive faded in on my source, I also needed to seriously boost the bass in WMP, but after that the sound was better than average.

I just started listening to 8.4.03 a lot. Despite what people say about their playing being off and on that year, man this show is nice! And Naylor's recording is fantastic! 3/4

wow, only 3/4 *? you obviously didn't like it very much. Of course if you just started it, I guess it has a lot of time to get better.

8.2.1995 - *** 1/2 - solid show. I think I've spent too much time with the new Live Trax to be completely impartial to this, I should've waited a bit. I went into it blind, though. I would've liked to have picked a slightly different set, but I was hyped about Summer 95. But the similar songs sound different, DRH's Jimi and Exodus solos are very different. Once I got past Exodus I figured the rest would be cookie cutter 95, but it was a little bit changed up. Great encore. ok sound, made better with EQ in WMP, worth checking out, like every Summer 95. Interesting note, Dave mentions they played DIDO last time they were at this venue, so I guess they were checking things way back when. Also the previous time they played here, was when they brought it back from the dead during it's year and a half hiatus.

11.28.1998 - Some definite highlights bracket the show, but the majority of the middle left me sort of bored. I've heard that if you're a Lie in Our Graves fan, it's one of the great versions. Not being a LIOG fan, it was a little much for me. Show picks up for me with a great #41 and Pig, then Lover followed by Warehouse was kind of hurky jerky. After Seek Up, then nearly an hour of boredom, the energy that built back up was shot dead by Lover before a strong close. Encore was a mix of good and bad. (** 3/4)

I love that show Rob. I remember getting the discs years ago, with the Flecktones opening set as the 4th disc. Really solid quality as well, for a '98.

I am grading strictly, ** 3/4 is a bit above average, but I really wasn't all that knocked out by it. The Heartbeat was boring, Rapunzel was slow... After Seek Up, I really wasn't very interested again until #41.

I really love that Pig. Very tight version.

July 3, 2004 - Saratoga Performing Arts Center - Saratoga Springs, New York
Awhile ago on the other board, I got pissy one night when everyone kept saying "flow" this and "song placement" that. I think I referred to at least one of them as "Professor" and asked for one lesson on flow. I think I figured it out with this show. A show has good flow when the songs you don't love (or even dislike) don't diminish your enjoyment of a show at all (Jimi, WAYG, Crash all work well here). We got off to a bit of a rough start with the Everyday opener (aka Soundcheck) and early tour (aka pre-gangster) Too Much. After that, it was balls out. Crazy Easy and Granny were both awesome, great lyrical performance of Sugar Will (I've yet to give my blessing to the lyrics on our site, so don't check em out yet), the perfect length Bartender, a great "5 men living in my head" scat by Dave on Jimi Thing. Dave was all ovr the place on an extended Crash intro. Rapunzel and Crush were great, but Stay just didn't close it right. Anyway, a fantastic show overall, highly recommended. (****)

I think we should have another thread just devoted to discussion of or ratings of the new releases as apposed to just any old show you picked up. Or is that too much? I just feel like theres so many of the new ones to choose from, kind of hard to get a good chunk of them covered.
