waxbanks This version of 'Back on the Train' is maybe the single-song highlight of the NYE run - the boys go deep without hesitation, and a rich ambient passage gives way to a scorching outro jam. The Boogie > Antelope combo to close is also quite nice, especially Trey's repeated Boogie On invocations during Antelope. Sand is Sand, but this is a fine example of the form. As for the first set, it's perfect of its kind, and the performances of even the long-shelved rarities are swell - as is the set-closing Bowie, which is ol' fashioned tension/release magic. I think 12/29 is still the deeper show, but is probably going to end up the fan favourite (even if the 'Love You' antics don't quite translate to tape).
