Review by Miguelito

Miguelito Another strong and interesting Fall ‘94 show, this one has a lot of highlights with one pretty significant jam that elevates this show. Opening with MFMF, which is my favorite placement for this tune, is a promising start. The Jam Chart describes the outro jam as evil, which is aptly put. Scent and Guelah that follow are both solid, leading to Melt, keeping the energy high. The Landlady that follows is fun, and then we come to Maze where things really take off. This version doesn’t disappoint, leading to a frenzied and chaotic peak before concluding. The Cavern that closes the set is worth mentioning as 1 of only 3 that get Jam Charted.

Set II opens with the ever-welcome Peaches. I love the placement. And then comes the Bowie, which is a fantastic piece of improvisation. This was just one of several significant jams that took place this month, which is clearly an important month in the band’s evolutionary development. And while I continue to rank the 12.29.94 version as my favorite Bowie, this one kept my attention throughout and this version’s importance shouldn’t be overlooked. As far as I can tell, it was the longest version played up until that point, only to be surpassed on 11.26.94. If you’re a fan of jammed out versions of Bowie, this one is worthy of your attention.

After that monster we get a lovely Yerushalayim Shel Zahav followed by an excellent Slave. After a few breathers the band closes out this pretty packed set with YEM, which maintains the excellence found in the rest of the show.

Overall this is a really great show with some major highlights, particularly the Bowie which is worthy of several listens.
