TheEmu I think this show kinda wobbles between some sloppiness (Mound, Golgi, YEM) and some decent stuff (Melt, Maze, Jim). I like how Trey quiets Paul and Silas way down. And can I just say I love it when Fishman screws up lyrics! :) One more note; there is a funny moment on the recording from the spreadsheet during Sweet Adeline:

Chick:"God damn barbershop quartet, I don't wanna hear it!"
Guy: "Hey...shut up!"
Chick: "I'm kidding...(mumbles something)...You wanna take this outside? I may look short but I'm really strong!"

lol. 3 stars overall.

DollarBill This is technically the only show at Liberty Lunch because the '91 show was cancelled, 24th of the tour and pretty average for this year. Decent recording and a pleasure to hear because someone faded the tape flips in and out so there were no awful cuts.

Nice Llama to open up with. Good Horn and Curtain followed. Melt was just ok, not great. Fish fell off a little at the end of an ok Mound. Punch is still getting better, but Trey fell off a little in the Land Lady section. The whole back end of Bouncing through Jim was pretty well played. Golgi was nice and dynamic. This was a reasonably good first set.

Rift was ok to open second set, maybe a few off spots. Tweezer was good, but pretty standard. Reba had some off spots, but a nice dynamic jam. Paul was also dynamic. Maybe they have been working on this in practice? Then the balls come out and Page almost waits for Trey as he gets his guitar on for the last note. Right into a nice FEFY which sounds a little misplaced, but when is the right time for a ballad? YEM was pretty solid and has a fun vocal jam as usual. HYHU brings Fish out to complain about HYHU. He then forgets the second verse of Rosie and freaks out! Things stay crazy as Trey busts into Mars and Fish mockingly yells at Mike throughout the ending. There really is a funny exchange between fans on the recording during the average Adeline closer.

Poor Heart was an unexpected encore, and this one still has the extra solo progression at the end of Page's solo. Tweeprise, on the other hand, was expected and it's a standard way to close up shop for the night.

Pretty good show overall, but nothing too earth shattering.

listening to the tapes you gotta laugh. there's bottles breaking loud girls . And PAge's grand!
The they were so tight and so loud and round. The Melt is almost '95 ish. ambient trey just wailin' while the train barrells down the track.
PYITE is always good in my book.
Maze . Page was feeling himself and the new set-up obviously. They got very quiet at the beginning of his solo which always bodes well for the jam . Trey was giving the crowd what they needed. riding the mature rambunctious Fish for all he was worth . Great Early grand/hammond maze.
A nice Golg. Then Runaway jim which they were about to kill on this tour. Again Fish was so soft and understated for a jam rock band and it added to the round sound of the room and the band this night and this tour. I'm sure page's grand had something to do with it!! ;-)
This jim is so flighty and soft and celebratory. wish there was a sbd recording of it. Great set closer This wasn't rock n roll. this was some sonic jet roll. even with the dissonance thrown out ny trey at the end it was beautiful. the tone of his guitar was special.
Nice rift second set opener a weird Tweezer.
solid show but lackluster once you know what happens the rest of the year. ;-)
