Harryshappyplace Its all been said above already, but wowowowow what a show! What a turn around from the show before. The whole thing is top-notch and Bela Fleck does an awesome job with them. First set has great flow and sounds better and better as it continues. Guyute sounds great and boy do they really nail Divided Sky. I can't remember the last time I heard Trey sustain those long notes as perfectly as he does in this version. Flawless.

The Bowie that starts the second set off is truly amazing and seems to be very underrated. Just because it isn't 20+ minutes long doesn't mean it doesn't get the job done. Page takes a nice lead about 10min in and builds into a great release, holds some tension, then peaks again. Classic.
The Reba from this show is just as excellent as any I have ever heard. This jam picks, stretches, bends, curves, and winds its way to a nice spacey groove before returning to the Reba proper and leading to a wonderful, joyous peak. This version is loaded.
Bela Fleck joins the band later on and they play some great acoustic material that even includes a half acoustic half electric Llama! The jam in Llama is very unique and much longer than usual and sounds absolutely fantastic thanks to Bela Fleck.

Overall this is a fabulous show and you would be really doing yourself a disservice if you don't check out the Bowie or Reba. They are real gems.
