fhqwhgads The jamming in this show is far more on point than the previous night at the same venue, in my opinion. The Sloth is a rowdy opener for sure, but the first intimation that the X factor would be intact was the Piper -> Weekapaug Groove, with Piper stretching its wings a bit jam-wise before an incredible segue into Weekapaug to finish the Mike's Groove from the previous night. Walls of the Cave is definitely extended, exceeding 20 minutes in length and featuring some woozy and characteristically 2.0-style jamming. Mountains in the Mist of course is a welcome rarity. Tube tops 10 minutes to open Set II, but the Bathtub Gin is a fine jam to revisit in the wake of the 7/31/13 Tahoe Tweezer to see how a "kitchen-sink" jam with multiple concise and coherent movements can be accomplished in a shorter (if you can call 26:52 short) span and without the obnoxious woos. David Bowie also sports an amazing version, and Suzy Greenberg is an atypical version in that Page takes a quasi-solo (in the sense of being unaccompanied) section. 4 out of 5 stars.
