montaigne This was my 80th show. The setlist is composed of one great tune after another, and most of them are well executed. This is an above average show, and I had a really great time.

spreaditround SET 1: Everybody's Got Something to Hide Except Me and My Monkey: Cool little jam, had to have caught everyone by surprise.

Down with Disease: Holy Toledo – what a way to start a first set!!! First ten minutes is raucous, but the rest is very boring.

The Lizards: Not the tightest version I have ever heard but tough to complain about this song in the three slot in the first set.

Tweezer: The jam right out of the gate is eerily reminiscent of the July 15, 1998, California love version. Mike truly owns this segment. 97 cow funk at 13:13 to start closing this one out. I really like this Tweezer.

Back on the Train: Standard.

Water in the Sky: Standard

Bug: Standard

Julius: Nicely jammed.

First set summary: On paper this looks amazing. It is a solid first set and the tweezer is easily the highlight, and it has definite replay value. It's too bad they didn't do more with DwD.

SET 2: Gotta Jibboo: This jam seriously rocks and is super underrated. There is never any lead up whatsoever. >

Mike's Song: Solid >

I Am Hydrogen: Classic. >

Weekapaug Groove: Fish and Mike just dominate the middle portion of the jam, Page adding some nice color as well. Fantastic and patient jam. Trey takes the lead back at 8:45 and overdrive commences. This Weekapaug has tons of replay value!

Axilla: they easily could have gone with a ballot here but instead they choose to keep the energy sky high, much appreciated! >

Harry Hood: this is a below average version and it's weird that you can barely even hear the vocals at the end of the song >

Funky Bitch: this tune has only closed a second set three times all of which were in the 1.0 era. 11.6.96 and 7.6.97.

ENCORE: Boogie On Reggae Woman: Standard and very short. >

Driver: Trey's dedication to the couple from the 7.28.98 is awesome! >

Tweezer Reprise: ending the show on a serious high note!

Second set summary: The show is always going to be a dark horse selection for me. It has long been criminally underrated. I think a lot of that has to do with the folks that attended the show it was outdoors it was cold and cannot remember if there was rain involved or not but certainly that played a large part in how people felt about the show. Tweezer and Weekapaug are both fantastic from the show. I mean, how cool is it that they open the show with Everybody's Got Something to Hide Except Me and My Monkey??? I would rate this show a 3.75 out of five.

[1] Unfinished.

Everybody’s Got Something To Hide was played for the first time since October 31, 1994 (434 shows). Disease was unfinished.

Review by The__Van

The__Van Odd start here with the EGSTHEMAMM bust out, but it works surprisingly well to open the show. There's even a cool little jam too; almost like they were trying to push further with it. Worth a listen. Disease rockets out with it's usual fiery guitar solo and continues for much of the run time before settling down into a sparse spacey groove with a > into The Lizards. Good execution so far. Lizards is played well. This mid 1st Tweezer leaves a lot to be desired IMO. Another flat groove that doesn't move or change much. The jam chart lists this as a having a "curious ending" but I'm not sure what's so curious about it. It gets funky briefly before just... stopping. Not worthy of mentioning. The rest of the set is played very standard although Bug is stretched out slightly.

Gotta Jibboo opens set 2 with rocky funky type 1.15 action. Good but not memorable. Mike's gets another standard version not much notable. Weekapaug finally picks things up with a cool drone jam that gets progressively more percussive and rhythmic. Cool stuff that immediately caught my ear. Axilla is good punch up at this point in the show and it leads into what will surely be a set closing Hood. However this Hood never gains much steam at all and Trey ends it without any real peak at all. It's not clear if he just wasn't feeling it or lost interest and wanted to play something else. Funky Bitch closes a blue balled set. Boogie On is fine in the encore spot. The dedication in Driver to a couple Trey met in '98 is sweet and brought a smile to my face. Tweeprise rages.

Yeah... I'm not a fan of this one. Weekapaug is the only standout moment in the whole show. That's pretty disappointing considering how good the sets look on paper.

Review by TheEmu

TheEmu It was cold, cold, cold, cold cold...

That's my memory of this show. I got excited about the Everybody's Got Something to Hide opener, and I was happy about getting a Jibboo and my first Mike's Song. But the whole thing was just not very good. Outdoor shows in the midwest in late September are a bad idea.

It wasn't that it was really all THAT cold...although I wasn't dressed for it, and would have frozen my ass off if not for my buddy Jason. The problem was the moisture from the crowd condensing above...and on the instruments. I think the combination of the wet and the cold made it miserable for the guys. I remember thinking that Mike and Trey sounded like they had wet strings.

So, yeah, not a great a show.
