His leads and rhythms, from actual live renditions of the recordings up to the jam parts of each song, were all spot on.
Larry has always been a very underrated guitarist. He does some really technical work, even on their earliest recordings. All three guys are phenominal musicians but the focus has always been on Les.

I never liked it with Les' vocals. They're the polar opposite of Tom Waits.

Wicked setlits. Del Davis' Tree Farm, the Return of Sathington Wilhoughby and Glass Sandwich are three I never thought they'd play. You're lucky to see those.
