Jack-A-Roe-last 9.20.91

Long Way To Go Home-3rd/92 times played
So Many Roads-4th/52 times played. Great transition in from Mircale.

Good show, minus Vince's vocals.

I remembered this show being awesome...went back and listened to a SBD of it. Wow, persepctive changed. Some things are ok, but basically there was way too much Vince cheesiness. Not just the vocals, either.

I don't know why, but this show just didn't seem to pick up 'til after Drums/Space. The first set was held back, with the tempo and volume being reduced every other tune. i.e. listen to the Help/Slip/Frank and you'll hear the Help start out slower then normal, the Slipknot get quieter around the one minute mark and then someone slams on the brakes and brings the ride from 55 to 35 for franklin's. and the ending to franklin's was completely shot to hell. There was a very noticeable space between the cadence and the final measures of the tune. They fought to correct it and ended up playing a very chill Same Thing. Then, Jack-a-roe came by and sounded like an engine with a misfire. They would be real smooth and groovy and then every few bars or so, there would be a bump in the road. Over all, it was not the greatest of Jack's, even for the '90's . Phil brings back the tightness with Tom Thumb and then Bobby Brings it home with a raucous Let it Grow.

The second Set Eyes opener had a little bit of a lag with everyone trying to figure out WTF vince is doing, until jerry cleary rips the opening chord progression through the mist of confusion. I agree with perrin that vince's voice wasn't anything to jump for, but I really enjoyed this version of Long Way to go Home. Yes, it was a bit shot in certain spots, but it was a generally solid version. The Estimated -> He's Gone was pretty standard, except for a really cool vocal effect jerry was adding to the outro of He's Gone. Gave the vocal harmonies a raw blues feeling to it. the Drums -> Space transition had a really interesting pan flute limerick that was played through some ambient bass rumbles.

The rest of the set was an improvement, but the highlight, imho, was the Miracle -> So Many Roads. Jerry's voice on roads was so heartfelt. He really put his all into it, and the U.S. Blues encore may have suffered a little because of it. They started the encore off at a slightly slower tempo then usually and jerry's playing and vocal lines were spotty. either that or the equipment was malfunctioning, which would actually make more sense. The vocal lines had words just dropped out here and there, but it wasn't done sloppily, they were just missing.

All in all i'd say this show was a miss, especially since they had just come of a fire run at the Omni which puts this show to shame.
