Review by MiguelSanchez

MiguelSanchez this is a great precursor to what was to come in august 1993. this show may not be quite as crazy as what was going to come in the next month, but this show features some top notch, tight, and focused jamming. the first set was pretty straight forward. llama opens things up nicely. mango was a nice bring back. the divided sky and stash show some nice flashes of improvisatory brilliance, but the real fireworks start in the 2nd set.

this is a nice little 1993 2001. page shines on this one. check out this melt; it is where this show really starts to pick up. i love listening to the evolution of this song throughout '93. it really starts to come together in these summer shows. fluff head is particularly sharp, and the whole band is really on point here. then comes one of my all time favorite mazes. with page really lighting it up, trey starts to put some 2001 licks over the top. very very hot maze. glide and sparkle give you a breather without killing the momentum, then... this mike's song is a monster. i love it. it has some really nice peaks. gordon and fishman get into such a nice groove while page and trey murder this one. as it peters out, they don't really steer toward the land of hydrogen. instead, they drift into yerushalayim shel zahav. i'm not jewish, but by damn, i love when they do these jewish hymnals. this one sounds a little eerie coming out of a some what dark mike's jam. the darkness passes as gordon brings up the weekapaugh intro. this show sort of peters out after a good weekapaugh. daniel saw the stone is a nice treat, and you have to dig the freebird.

overall:

very good show. this may not be a best of year contender, but at this point in the year, it was about the best. if you like this, check out the 12/30/93 and almost any show from august. i just love how much the music seemed to evolve between 93-94.

highlights:

set 1:
llama, divided sky, mango song, stash

set 2:

Melt, fluff>maze, mike's>yerushalayim>weekapaugh
