After saying yesterday that I usually pick 90’s shows based on their setlists, I go and choose this 1993 performance, with a very strange second set, as my next show.
Honestly, I got sidetracked by the first Supplication since 1984 and I didn’t notice what was or wasn’t happening later on. Check this out: Foolish Heart, Women Are Smarter, Ship of Fools, Corinna>Drums>Jam>The Last Time, Stella Blue, One More Saturday Night, E: I Fought The Law. I don’t know if I’ve listened to a full show with so little opportunity for extended playing. There’s a little noodling at the end of Foolish Heart and again after the heart of Corinna (this is the only “jammy” part of the whole show), but otherwise the second set just breezes by. Even the Mississippi Half Step that opens the show is truncated.
When this happens, I would hope that the songs would be well played, but there are lyrical flubs all over. Musically, things aren’t horrible here, and the strange bongo/toms intro to Foolish Heart made me take notice, but there’s nothing else of note going on.
