11-2-02 Rio Pavilion, Las Vegas, NV – Every part of this song from that night makes this the best version, but what stood out to me was Kyle’s Piano/Organ section before Nershi and Kang’s jam. One of the better sets played in 02. Big Shoes, Shine, Skin it Back > Rhythm of the Road, Another Night, Sand Dollar > Texas.
I love the Shine from 11/2/02 Las Vegas also. I agree with you about the set! That first set was one of the most fun and heady I’ve ever experienced. (It’s got my fav. Big Shoes, favorite Rhythm of the Road, my fav/very memorable Texas, see other entries…)
My current favorite Shine, though is 4/9/2002 Brady Theatre – Tulsa, OK
This Set I opener is hot. Kang meanders a bit, provides some great little jazz stabs, then ultimately gets down to full throttle rock’n’roll buisness.
