Review by Miguelito

Miguelito I’ve made my way through the first six shows of this tour. Things turned up the previous night and the band continues to put on a strong performance here.

Much of the show includes solid Fall ‘94 versions. I really like the set list and am highlighting just a few things. Overall, however, this show is worthy of your time.

It’s nice to get ATR here in the 1st set which was still being played occasionally but was on its way to being shelved as it was only played 8 more times after this one.

I really miss Foam being in the regular rotation. Listening to this stellar version was a treat, as the band takes their time with this one. I love the quiet parts, and then subsequent build up is really fun. This is one of the more exploratory versions I’ve heard and I’m pleased to see it recognized as a highly recommended version. If you’re a Foam fan and unfamiliar with this version I’d give it a listen, or ten.

Stash to close out the first set is an interesting and fairly uncommon set closing choice which works well here. It’s a solid version.

The Antelope and Mike’s Simple sandwich are both enjoyable, and I particularly like when Antelope is played in any spot other than as a set closer. This is the second appearance in a row of the Mike’s > Simple > Mike’s combination and I like the version done on 10.8.94 better. However, it’s still an interesting historical look at how Simple at that point in time and to see how much it’ll evolve.

The Weekapaug is another show highlight, making it two outings in a row where it’s played that role. I’m always fascinated by songs trends like this, especially when they unexpected.

This is a very fun show. I prefer the previous night and 10.8.94 a bit more but I think all of three have merit and are good examples of how the band was playing in the early part of this tour.
