This show is easily in my top 5 of the 97 fall tour. I wasn't sure what to excpect after a solid show in Rochester that was not like any other show from fall 97. Would they get right back to the funk after a night off? Affirmative!

They start thigs off with is with out a doubt the funkiest funcky bitch ever! Next up is a long, slinky 2001 that refuses to allow you to stop shaking your money maker. Good stuff. As 2001 comes to an end Trey brings out Camel Walk much to the delight of the crowd. I caught the Darien Camel and must say the Albany version did a little more for me. Mushrooms? Problably. The rest of the set is good but nothing like the opening 3 vollies.

Set 2 is simply incredible. Not a dull moment here folks. Each song is given a full workout especially the Piper and Caspian. Monsters I tell you. Everybody rags on Caspain but I personally love it (most of the time). The jam tacked on at the end makes this my favorite of all time. Double encore done deal.

Do yourself a favor and give this one a listen. If your short on time go straight to the second set. You won't be dissappointed!
