(1) includes a Gloria Jam


Jack Straw opens a bit slow but in the jam steps to the plate for a homerun. Beware Phil Bombs may detonate unexpectedly. Jerry wasn't ready to let it all hang out too early, and takes his time in Sugaree. No, the table of noodles is reserved for after the 7th minute, the next jam being slower and more deliberate, but again building intensity into the 13th minute where Bob fans amongst noodles and bombs. This Sugaree, in the heyday of Sugaree, works on her own schedule. MAMU is mediocre with late blooming Big River in its wake. Loser has a different twist to it, and a decent crashdown. Easy to Love You brings things down, unfortunately. The pre-rearrangement Minglewood helps bring us back to life, ironically with a surprise culmination jam which later became standard... and Althea tanks it. Not surprisingly TMNS closes the set out fanning flames.

Things get cooking in the segue from China into Rider, with a late blooming Rider erupting with a great Northbound Train verse and gaining speed the rest of the way. Thunderstorm drums lead us into strong early portion of LLR, which slows down rises again for the finale. He's Gone begins one of the best meat sequences of the Brent Era, and ever. I had to turn Phil down, he's heavy to the point of sound problems. Things start getting interesting with SYF, and the outro jam is the beginning of something magical, staying in Gone for the next 5 minutes where Jerry and Brent are the all stars. At about the 14 minute mark they depart from the theme and search for the sound, leading them into a fantastic jam that seems headed for Eyes until Brent and Phil push GLORIIIIIIIIAAAAAAAAAAA! This theme doesn't stay with us long, though the noodles do. Brent is pushing for an Orbital Jam, one problem, this would mean heading into drums! The band isn't ready, the result being some fucking awesome jam with Brent out in wonderland while Jerry and the boys tear it up. Brent comes back to earth, leaving on hand in the stratosphere, and they return to the Gloria theme again. X-Factor is achieved in here, with the drummers each having 8 arms. Bob beings a greaser rock rhythm which pushes them into CC Rider, at a great pace. With more energy than a typical, plodding first set offering I'm satisfied with it thanks in large to Brent's killer solo. When Jerry gets his solo going the team explodes with a culmination jam that again hits X-factor. Bob's clearly feeling it hahaha. As soon as it ends they go into a free form jam that goes on for a few minutes of buzzing before Jerry puts the axe down.

A groovy NFA emerges from drums at the behest of the drummers, then we head into Black Peter at Jerry's behest. Jerry vocally souls out the Black Peter than follows. Don't skip the Sugar Mag! Solid version of an oft played tune.

Performance Summary
The first set is very hit or miss, you may want to skip most of it to get to the meat of the show, the pre-drums, which gives us one of their all time jams! Post-drums, as there is no space, is not to be skipped.

Sound Quality
A, there is some Phil saturation, most noticeable during Gone. Otherwise pretty perfect, with a couple minor patches in the first set.
