This will probably seem like sacrilege to some Beautiful Jam fans, but...I don't see how this can rank with the top Dark Stars. It's the first time they're performing Wharf Rat. The Dark Star is quite short, and they find a novel but tentative road into the new song and a novel but tentative road out of it. The result is very nice...but hardly to compare with Old Renaissance, 2/27/69, the Dick's Pick 4 Dark Star, etc.
