This is one of many releases from oz, you gotta like the packaging, except
if it ever broke :-(. The cover folds out four ways and has some good
pictures. This is a really good show. The Last Time is "Forever".
The quality of this boot is somewhat mediocre, but the content is dazzling. First off, any show that contains THE EMPTY WORLD is going to be incredible. BANANAFISHBONES live is very laughable, but they didn't emphasize the guitar part enough. CHARLOTTE SOMETIMES is standard, same with THE HANGING GARDEN. PIGGY IN THE MIRROR is enlightening because the parts are very spread out and it makes the song so much bigger and much more discernable; it made me respect it more. 100 YEARS, THE WALK, GIVE ME IT, and PRIMARY: blah blah (buy CONCERT for these). HAPPY THE MAN is a nice surprise, and FOREVER ("THE LAST ITME") is breathtaking. The only real rguement against buying this is the technical fuck-ups the bootlegger committed. In addition to the standard mislabelings (which are actually commendable considering how poorly Robert enunciates the intros), the last 5 songs seem to be taken from another show, which would be fing if the intros weren't cut. The main problem (and this REALLY p!
isses me off) is the speeding up. The adjusted speed ruins THE EMPTY WORLD, CHARLOTTE SOMETIMES, A FOREST, FOREVER, 10:15, KILLING AN ARAB, and 100 Years. One expects these to be slow and i was dissappointed at how this came about. anyways, hearing BIRD MAD GIRL, THE TOP, and THE EMPTY WORLD live makes up for it all!
