There was no vocal jam in YEM, as the song melted into FEFY. I Didn't Know featured Fish on Madonna washboard. Split Open included teases of Ice Ice Baby and was unfinished. Sanity was played for the first time since May 17, 1992 (201 shows). Reba contained a Simpsons signal. Trey sang the verses of Fee through a megaphone.

dscott This is a fun looney bird of a show!!!

Halley's sets the playful tone. YEM isn't the tightest, but it packs quite a bit of inventive fun into a relatively brief version. While there isn't a fully acapella "vocal jam" per se, the last couple minutes of jamming are peppered with some wack-a-doo vocal shenanigans. FEFY is a refreshing breath of normalcy before Mule kicks things in the donkey. Everyone's favorite Russian rhombonaut (Dividedsky) has a bit of an edgy feel this time around. I Didn't Know isn't that far gone, but far enough. Dog-Faced Boy is ironic in its reverence, as usual. Lunacy abounds in the first set's closing quartet, including in-tease commentary that strikes fear in the listener that Vanilla Ice might actually appear during the Melt. (Fortunately, ice - vanilla or otherwise - melts quickly in sunny Florida.)

Another pair of madness-themed selections to kick off Set 2, possibly inspired by geography. The "D'oh" signal neatly sets up the whistling finale in a satisfying, crisp Reba. A neat little klezmergrass / Mule-duel style jamlet connects Fee to Uncle Pen. An exceptional Mike's Song is highlit by an unambiguous Dear Prudence jam around the 8-minute mark. Soaring and melodic, then things get stormy but Page won't quite let go of the Prudence theme, and eventually the band comes together to deliver those familiar heavy Mike's closing riffs. Ordinary, solid HydroPaug. Henrietta monkeys around playfully in the Jungle Book's home state, and then a couple of rockers to finish.

If you have focused on the big, epic jams in your '94-'95 listening, then you may have missed this odd little gem. Give it a try! You'll definitely be adding some "play" to your playlist!!!

HighNote Check this show out!

Classic Clearwater show from Spring '94...the boys were really in groove here - and a Sanity bust out surely gave this crowd a good time!

Suzy --> Maze is worth a listen for sure and the "F" jam in Mike's Groove is gorgeous (also subject to this week's "mystery jam")

you can find this show in it's entirety on Youtube
