Review by beach

beach DollarBill does a nice job of reviewing the show, so I won't give a blow-by-blow to avoid repeating what's already been said. However, I did want to emphasize the highlights. For me Fall '92 is a very interesting time in the band's history. Some great new songs are introduced and you can hear a marked difference in the band's performance level. It's also a time period that really demonstrates the band's goofiness.

FIRST SET

The Maze in the first set is fantasitc. Trey really rips his solo and Page does a really nice job too. Reba has a great jam, which includes a 40-second or so Eleanor Rigby tease. The Gin is also nice and has an interesting jam section where the band seems to break down the music and starts to dissolve into what I would refer to as controlled chaos. The first set is finished off with a raging Antelope that contains a Gin tease.

SECOND SET

Axilla is a fun opener albeit a little rough. It's new, so it's understandable. The Tweezer is great and has Big Ball Jam in the middle. I think Tweezer is a good song for a BBJ. It doesn't seem to interupt the flow of the song as much as it does in other tunes and this version is a pretty good example of that. There's a tease in Tweezer that I can't seem to identify and it is driving me crazy. If anybody knows, please post a review. YEM has a rough start, but they really straigthen it out and the jam is very good and contains another Eleanor Rigby tease. Axl Rose makes an appearance for the YEM vocal jam - funny stuff.
