Review by westbrook

westbrook This is a great August 93 show with sharp playing and improvisation and teases popping up all over the place. You should not hesitate to listen to the entire show, but if you're just hunting for noteworthy performances check out the Bag, Reba, Chalk Dust, Split Open and Melt, Landlady/Tweezer, and Possum.

AC/DC Bag - Great opener. Includes the old intro and hot playing from Trey. The end of the jam is unusual too.

Reba - Type 2 jam with lots of tension that keeps you on the edge of your seat. Some nice interplay between Page and Trey. If the release from all of the tension was better, I think this would be an all-time version.

Chalk Dust - Can't You Hear me Knocking teases and played with a lot of gusto. Definitely a plus version.

Split Open and Melt - Classic SOAM jamming mixed with some type 2 action as well. Every August 93 Melt should be heard!

Landylady/Tweezer - Lots of signals and great communication. An interesting version to say the least.

Possum - More teases and a raging jam.

Lots of highlights. This show begins one of my favorite runs of all time. The following week's worth of shows should all be heard. No reason not to pull this one down if you're looking for a great mid-90s show.
