Harryshappyplace This is a longer show than most shows so far on this tour and while I don't find this one to be exceptionally better than any of the previous, it still has it's moments.

First set is really fun and I think the highlight is the Gin that lasts about 13 minutes. While this version won't top any best-of Gin charts, its worth a listen for the slower and trance-like jam that about 8min in, with the help of Page and a meandering Trey sounds like, to me, that we are falling through space (or corridor) on the way to Gamehendge which could help lead to the Forbin > Mockingbird later. The Forbin narration is pretty standard as Trey talks about leaving the shell of your body and sinking into the core of the Earth to enter Gamehendge. Good stuff from an excellent first set.

The second set starts off with promise with The Curtain> Tweezer but this Tweezer is nothing to write home about and seems a bit directionless, but does have a nice segue into Lifeboy. Guyute keeps the pace and the Chalkdust livens things up a bit more. The show takes another turn when they ditch the electrics and go into an acoustic block of songs in typical fall '94 fashion. While I enjoy the bluegrass acoustic stuff, I think it can really ruin the momentum of a set. This set had good flow in my opinion, but I never thought it picked up any real momentum, so the acoustics may have been a good placement. A good Coil is placed nicely and they wrap things up with Tweeprise.

The encore is fun with the added horns for Ya Mar, but the structure of the song is a little awkward but that could be me just being picky. Cavern ends things nicely reminding everyone to take care of your shoes and probably your shell.

Good show overall, but I find the second set to be a little lackluster. Not a big deal though. 3/5
