Notes: Possum included a brief full-band Landlady jam and Rhapsody in Blue teases from Trey and Page as well as I Let a Song Go Out of My Heart, Get Back, Oom Pa Pa, Will the Circle Be Unbroken?, Random Note, All Fall Down, Aw Fuck!, and Tritone Down signals. Sweet Adeline was performed without microphones. 'A' Train contained a Dixie tease from Trey. This show was not originally scheduled as part of this tour, and was only announced to the public at the previous evening’s show at CU’s Balch Fieldhouse.
Great sounding bootleg! Right off the soundboard. You can hear a lot of stage banter between songs. Good Llama, some digi-noise in Guelah. Pretty good first set until the new material. Horn is sloppy. Calls for No Dogs Allowed before Ice. Possum has a lot of teases that I can't remember who the band is that they are referencing. Another barbershop ending first set.
Melt is a good opener, check out the screaming guitar tones. ATR is a little off, but YEM is an absolute train wreck in the intro. Page is no where to be found in spots. The vocal jam is worth the listen though. Horse>Silent is so close to being good. Trey singing the chorus vocals instead of Page? Maze and Weigh are good. Bowie is sloppy but has a good jam. Fish does a great vac. solo. A-Train and Jim are outstanding. Great drumming from Fish. Trey laughs through most of the lyrics in Jim.
Encores are great! Very tight.
Average show. This is a bad Page night but, has fun moments.
This is no 4.6 show, but it is better than the current average (3.3, and that's *after* I gave it a 5 just to bump it up) suggests. This is a pretty straight-ahead rocking show from '92 with enough good that you might as well listen to the whole thing. Plus it's one of those remotely mixed pristine sounding Colorado tapes, so that's a bonus!
The show opens very strongly. They're on point for the first three songs. The Divided Sky is really quite darn good. If you like the setlist you'll like the rest of the set. Possum is particularly fun with all of its ridiculous secret language. One thing I will say about the secret language is that sometimes they got a little overzealous with it. All the best examples of secret language are used within the context of already good music. Sometimes they let the music get away from them a bit and just played these secret language cues without much thought. The intro to this Possum is a good example of this. It's really a pretty minor complaint, but despite the humor of them, I could use a few less sometimes.
The second set boasts a fine opening Melt and a pretty good YEM. YEM's intro is sloppy, but jams are quality. They seemed very unsure of themselves during Weigh. It never really gelled. Bowie is the highlight of the show. I really like this one despite not being a huge Bowie fan. Trey hits a cool riff and lays back for a while while Page pounds away. At the end the jam slowly morphs back to more normal territory and gets finished as usual. You'll definitely find yourself listening to this Bowie multiple times.
Overall, this is a pretty par-for-course-show with a below par-for-the-course average.
