andrewrose I wasn't at this show (I had seen my first a few months earlier back on the East coast in my hometown of Montreal), but set one was one of the first tapes I wore down in my Walkman going to and fro from school as a teenager. I don't remember how I got it, though I think it was a fairly well circulated, good sounding tape, in the days when such a thing existed. I hadn't heard this show in years until I remembered out of the blue tracked it down; I think I actually lost the tape in said Walkman when it was stolen out of my locker during a high school dance. But I digress.

This is a great, fun show. They played a LOT of shows in 94, and by December Trey was doing absolutely obscene things on his guitar and the band was locked-in. You don't need to peruse that first-set setlist too much to figure out it was a special night. The Simple->Catapult->Simple is no novelty; there is some very interesting and engaging jamming in there. If you're a fan of a blisteringly well executed Maze, Scent, or Lizards, please give a listen. I'm not as familiar with Set II, but I'm pretty sure both the Possum and Reba get the silent jam treatment, with the latter also getting soft and spooky, and spanning almost twenty minutes. Maybe not as good as the one I saw on 7/6/94 back in Montreal, but again, I digress; I've still never been to San Diego.
