Steve's Show Notes (edited from his Crowesbase post):
- Gov't Mule opened
- The Robinson Auditorium is VERY nondescript on the outside (drove around for an hour past that "courthouse looking building" before figuring it
out), but solid on the inside, GREAT acoustics.
- While the set looks short, it was a really amazing performance.  ALL of the Crowes sat in at the end of Mule's set for a very moving "I Shall
Be Released" (the only other time they did this was for one of the Philly shows). "My Morning Song" was purely savage, and "Tied Up And
Swallowed" just kept it going.  The double-shot of Dylan was a surprise treat, AND to have "Title Song" also PLUS "Big Time" in the encore, this
is another top 10 show from the '96 run.
Rating :  9/10
