This show turned me into the "Tweezer" fanatic that I am today. The first highlight of the show is a "Possum", which is followed by the always-strange "Catapult". "Curtain>Tweezer" follows that, and it is probably my favorite "one-two" combination. This Tweezer does not disappoint! It grooves and glides effortlessly, through numerous jam segments. It seems that from Tweezers such as this one and 11/30/95 Dayton (and others, of course), that we have arrived at the epic jamming that became almost commonplace in 1997. Jams with several, distinct jam segments, such as the Ghost from 11/28 Worcester and the Jim from the next night, seem to me to be direct descendants of this Tweezer. These styles of jams work hard at establishing the Groove before launching into the Unknown. If you're not a Tweezer fan, by all means check this one out" may change your mind, too!

Faht1 WOW! That's all I can say about this show. If you have not listen to any of this I would STRONGLY recommend Listening to this show in its entirely. Absolutely well played with several Unique versions such as AC/DC Bag, Possum, Tweezer and Slave! The Tweezer and Possum might be one of the best versions of all time. A MUST HEAR! This show is a solid 4.6/5 stars.

Penn42 What a stellar show! I really like the song selection this night and they were playing with a lot of energy. However, in the end, it's the jams that really make this show stand out.

Stash, though not as adventurous as a couple others from Fall '95, is great, and is as good as a 12 minute Stash will get. This ridiculous Possum has the description balls-out written all over it. Top 5 version for sure. A nice recitation of Catapult follows it taboot. Tweezer rages super hard and the segue into Makisupa is silky smooth. Those are the standout jams, in my opinion, but all the other songs with jam sections like Bag, Jim, Ice, and Slave get a nice workout as well.

Personally, I think this show is just as good as anything from December and I would rather have had this show released instead of Pershing from the night before.

bouncin7 Wow - no bod eee talked in depth about this version of Makisupa, so here weeee go: not only is it my favorite version ever, but most importantly, most unique, most trippy of all is that TREY is whispering throughout this rather long version saying mindbending things for six minutes like "Maki in my bed" and "Palooska on my head" and "Goldstein on my head" and "Lets hear one for Fred." TREY is whispering in a Zappa inspired hold on to your hat sort of way. Blew me away. I play this on minidisc all the time 10/22/95 Look OUT!
