The segue from Lengthwise to Maze included an audience assist: the audience continued to sing the Lengthwise chorus after Fish finished, and the Maze high-hat intro completed the transition. Listen at the end of It’s Ice for a brief interlude that later became the tag ending to Axilla Pt. II. Harpua contained Buried Alive, Axle F, and She’s So Cold teases. At the end of Chalk Dust and again before AC/DC Bag, Trey made comments about Bonnie Raitt, who was also playing in town and whom he “has a big crush on.” Sweet Adeline was dedicated to "Nina," who lost her ID and got it back from Trey on stage.

DollarBill This show looks better on paper than it sounds in the ears. The 42nd show of the tour is a return to the Roseland Theatre for the fourth time. The average playing seemed to be hampered all night by the squeaks and squeals of the monitors being EQ'd and/or mixed, so I guess Pete or Paul had a rough night too. It was a good recording to hear overall.

The mixing starts right away during an ok Jim opener, they aren't warmed up yet. Feedback continues during Foam which was nice and dynamic. Sparkle was good, Melt was rocking, and Mound was pretty solid. Punch is getting there; it's just not automatic yet. Sample was slow tonight, but still good. Reba was good overall, but kind of had a weak ending. IDK had more feedback adjusting for Madonna maybe? Bowie was ok, it seemed to go on and on, and it sounded like Mike wanted out about two minutes earlier than Trey did at the end.

It was a strange way to open second set with Fish leading the Lengthwise chant into an average Maze. Bouncing was pretty standard. Pen had more squeaks going on, but was good until the end. Hood was not good at first, but rocked by the end. Then the Balls come out and it almost sounds like Fish does a little Hot for Teacher drumming in there. Ice's first verse was off and was a little weak throughout the whole song. YEM also seemed a little lackluster, but had a good jam with kind of a Smoke on the Water flavor to it. A funny vocal jam leads us to...holy crap...we have a Harpua!!! I always love to hear these and this one is no exception. Great story as always from Trey and great sound effects from the rest of the boys too. And if that wasn't enough they get a Chalk Dust closer? It was rocking, but kind of had a weird tag ending on it to say thanks. Crazy set, but not the best playing.

Bag is slowly making its way back into set list rotation and tonight it gets the encore spot. This one is pretty good for the most part and then everyone gets shushed for and average Adeline.

I'm not sure if the sound issues had anything to do with it, but I'm sticking with three stars on this one even though I really want to bump it up for the YEM, Harpua, Chalk closing.

wasn't at this show . but this was one of my first tapes. so much sentimental value. it was a really good audience copy of the first set with the bag encore. Having stipulated all that:
The Runaway jim mkes me feel like I'm in a comforter going 200mph great opener. the sound of the room and was amazing aparently. they sounded like a full tight polished machine.
MELT!! out of control. Straight to the point. Fish wasn't searching niether was Trey.
Reba!! I was at Clifford BAll, and 4/2/98 . hose were my fav live reba's. 6/23/95 . But this is my fav all around reba. Perfect orchestrated part. The jam makes me cry no matter how many times I hear it in a row. I literally cn sing trey's whole solo.
The Bowie is a face/melter. You can not hear the rest of the show and be satisfied
