Very tribal opening to NFA. Actually, the second set is very similar to the one they did exactly one year earlier (but not nearly as good unfortunately). I have a pretty good FM recording of this show and would like to convert/upload to gdlive.com. Anyone know how I can do this?????

i just finished listening to this show and energy is everywhere. the boys are very tight and engage in inspired jamming on nearly every tune. listen to to the segue from space to TOO. the launch it. much intensity! the wharf rat is sweet. and the first set is much better than usually stated. enjoy this show!

i just finished listening to the nye show of 90, and the nye show of 91 is better. yes, 90 has hamza and branford and two encores, but the boys are much tighter for the 91 show. the highlight of 91 is the jam coming out of drums with hamza, branford, jerry and bruce. wow, gorgeous. but other than that, 91 rocks! the wharfrat will make you cry and the sugar mag will knock you off your feet, not to mention that the other is a monster. blah, blah, blah. get shi show and enjoy!

I like this NYE show. Doesn't match up with last years but tons of energy from a band that quite frankly wanted to dissolve the tradition. Can't stand Vince but in all fairness he is very energetic this show. Good effort by him sans Hornsby and obviously playing with heavy hearts.
-Dave (10/28/2008)


This NYE show absolutely sucked. The vacuum created when Hornsby left was glaringly obvious by this point. That free show in the park was painful enough, but the lack of creativeness after that point just kind of hurt. The night before this, they had some juice, and kicked some serious ass, which made expectations even worse. But the whole band started a slow decline into oblivion after Bill Graham died. By the end of 92 I had to go, after not missing a show just 2 years prior. Graham's absence combined with Hornsby's abscene just left no wind in the sails. Thank god for Airto on the 30th reminding us of what an apeshit show sounds like. Airto this evening also provided some fresh blood, but not enough to pull the show out of it's sad funk.
