I am in love with the second set (Phil&Ned>Space>Darkstar>Dew) of this show. The boys take us to a very special world. Ephoric to the point of drifting away....
The third set isnt as good as the second, but very high energy IMO. Not as much jamming, but hey after what came before, what can ya say.Very tight NFA>GDTRFB.
Oh but the "Darkstar"!!
The sound is quite nice too.

Good, but not the best...
As far as sound goes, this is a nice source, esp. for the Seastones>Dark Star>Dew. This Dark Star is very tight with some very well delivered jams. At times it is very delicate and beautiful and flows very smoothly. However, the rest of the set kind of drags and just dosen't sound right. For a hint of brilliance, get this one just for the above songs. If you are looking for an introduction to Dead 74, you better check out the shows from May and June. They are much better.
