SlavePhan THE GOOD: This show is overshadowed by the night before, but I think it is the better of the two. The band plays energized, which is evident from the Wilson opener containing playful little breaks and the very strong Foam. The Stash here is a gem and is the bigger brother to the version from the night before. I also love the Bowie, which has lots of teases and the Oom Pa Pa signal and just screams to a conclusion. It contains a full-band vamp on the chords that would make their way into the Providence Bowie on 12/29/94 right around the 8:45 mark. The second set is no slouch either - Tweezer has a full blown power chord rock jam which solidifies after a few cycles of Hey-exercises. But the best part is this one is that it somehow mellows out into a drawn out acoustic Horse, with Trey giving his best Metheny impression. The Maze, which may be a candidate for 5 stars, is really flawless as well. And then, when it all seemed over, there's a wonderful Harpua closer.

THE BAD: There's a bit of a mid-set lull in the first set, with a handful of 5-6 minute-ers that are not very remarkable. The clear worst part about this show, though, is the audio cut at the absolute peak of this Lizards! Sure sounds like a tape flip issue, but man, what a bad time to have that happen!

ETC: This show is filled with little teases and tidbits. I disagree with the full Donna Lee call - to me it is just a tease. Fishman is introduced as the "Master of the Universe...reborn!" and plays washboard for I Didn't Know. If you listen carefully, you can hear the audience chant for Lizards at the start of the second set. The band eventually plays it. You can also hear someone call for Harpua, which the band plays, but not before Trey thanks the crowd as it was the last of the 'northeast run'. It's unusual to see Fishman do 2 songs in a night, but during Purple Rain, he asks the audience "do I look like Prince?"

BOTTOM LINE: Great way to end the Northeast run, with the band at its playful best. 4.5/5
Score: 2
