BarryAlive I think this is my first review! Just noticed there are no reviews for it, and I was there.

Jam-wise, there wasn't anything too crazy or out of the box that makes this show stand out in the middle of what was an amazing tour. (...that may be a little overshadowed by the following Fall shows.) It was almost a straight-up greatest hits set. And although there was nothing terribly adventurous about either set, both were tightly executed, and the energy was through the roof. The fellas were really having a great time, and it showed. I'm not going to over-hype it, since I know there are way better go-to '94 shows than this... But I will say that if you do decide to check it out, you'll be hard-pressed to find fault with anything laid down in Minneapolis this warm and breezy June evening.

Note: This show is in circulation, usually labelled "SBD." This is definitely NOT a board recording. If anyone knows if a board exists, please feel free to let me know- would love to hear it!

I (at some point, circa 1999) possessed a really crisp recording of this show, and I must say I'm surprised that no one has singled out this particular Antelope as noteworthy. Trey immediately takes complete control after the vocals and steers into a very haunting melody, slowly dissecting and tearing away the subtleties of his ever so beautifully lyrical guitar style, and the music is like light speed in slow motion, drifting in space while Fishman furiously implies the savage and sweet funk of the rhythm, and when Trey finally hits that resolution, that return to the theme he's been teasing for 3 or 4 minutes (I thought of these as his Thelonious Monk solos), its like a complete shock to the soul, tear-jerking every time. From there to the finish Trey just wails and wails, and when he sets the gearshift for high gear, he is SCREAMING into the microphone, equally jolted at listening to what they'd just played.
The rest of the set was equally awesome, the hysterical Kung chant perfectly arising within an awesome FFM. Purple Rain found Fishman talking about Prince's hometown of Minneapolis. I also seem to remember the unfinished DWD>Contact being sublime, and the BBFCFM almost scarily leaping out of the end of Contact. Ah, the old days, never to be heard again.
