DollarBill This is the only show at the Smith Opera House, seventh show of the tour. Lots of reverb and kind of a bad Mike night at times, this show had a lot of experimentation and risk taking going on making it rough at times. Good recording.

It's nice to hear the new piano open up with a good Cup. Mike slips in a random note signal before going into an ok Foam. There are some rough parts in there. Guelah also has signals and was pretty dynamic. Reba had an ok start, a rough middle and a good jam. Hey, the first Sloth of the year! That explains the sloppiness and loose timing. Divided Sky also had strange spots. The first Tela of the year is nice to hear, but again not the tightest. Llama rocks as usual. IDK has a funny part where Trey and Fish explain their bet of $800 that Fish will not be late for the bus this tour. I wonder how long that lasted? IDK was unfinished for a bust-out of Catapult! Nicely done. Good solid Antelope to close really helps this set get up to average status. Definitely an off Mike night.

Jim is a promising opener for second set, very well played. Ice was good with a little added noise from Mike and Trey in the middle section. Coil was also well played. Tweezer was pretty standard. They must have felt Mike's pain as Trey brings them into I Walk the Line. Sparkle was a little off. YEM was ok, but there may have been equipment problems because Mike disappears for quite a while throwing the whole climax off. The jam at the end was ok segueing nicely into the Horse, which of course brings out the acoustic. The timing on Silent is still off. HYHU brings out Fish for the first Rosie of the year. They also need to relearn this one as Page and Mike have problems, even though it's a joke. Possum was a little off and rushed as the back end of this set is not as good as the front.

Adeline was unfinished due to Fish's poor singing. An average Grace tries to make up for it. Hell, even Tweeprise sounds a little off tonight. Not the greatest of encores.

This one is three stars to me; even though experimentation is a necessary part of this band, they just didn't quite pull it off on this really weak Mike night.

Penn42 **This is my seventh of (hopefully) 71 reviews as I listen to the entire winter/spring '93 tour.**

Much better than last night's show. It's hard trying to imagine an era when Loving Cup was a new and fun cover. I'm personally a little tired of it, even though I'm trying hard to understand it's place in this era. All this early 90's listening is making me pine for Guelah to make a triumphant return into regular rotation. Reba and Divided Sky are fine choices for set one anchors and each is played well. Tela is always welcome. Catapult is a fun surprise coming out of I Didn't Know. Antelope has a little extra fervor.

Jim, Ice, and Coil are all fine renditions. Tweezer isn't nearly as exciting as previous versions this tour and the I Walk the Line that follows feels (and is played) like an afterthought. YEM's jams are solid, but the composed section is a mess. Another exploratory ambient vamp had my hopes elevated, but subsequent portions of the song are botched pretty badly. This is the first YEM vocal jam of Winter/Spring '93 that doesn't conclude with interesting harmony. This one retains the usual cascades of wailing and such.

No major highlights here, but the show is a decently constructed fun listen top-to-bottom. The Reba and first three songs of set two are likely the highest points.
