FYI: This show also includes "Blueprint." It's lumped into the file for "Long Distance Runner," right before Encore 2.

The thing with fixed set lists is that these provide a band with some sort of safety net, something to hold on to or a proverbial backbone while playing live shows. One thing I admire about Fugazi is that this band never used set lists, but preferred to take its cues from situations or events as and when they occurred. Of course this means taking risks, since it significantly increases the element of surprise and the chance of possible mishaps, and it definitely demands the band members to stay alert, taking subtle leads and cues from each other, and being able to go into any of the songs that make up the repertoire. On some nights this kind of interaction falls short, yet on other nights everything is magic.
That said, this recording right here definitely falls in the latter category and contains magic. It is the recorded document of an evening in time where the pieces of the puzzle come together and the result transcends. The band is on fire, and the performances and interplay are great, which results in several little improvs or song variations (in this regard I would like to note that Joe, in a very very unusual move, takes a completely different approach to Glueman). On top of this, the sound quality is truly excellent and beautifully captures the intricate patterns and layered subtleties that these songs contain.
In short, I think this recording is a must have for any Fugazi enthusiast. Period.

P.S. For the record I would like to mention that one song is not mentioned in the set list yet gets pulled out of the hat right after Long Distance Runner. I will not give away the song title here, but I'm sure a lot of listeners will welcome this tune!
