An awesome show here that is well-known for its Bela Fleck sit-in. What more needs to be said about a show with a monster Slave w/ Bela sitting in? A decent amount, actually...

Third song in we are hit with a Reba that means business, already off to a very great start. The sequence of If I Could > Ice > Theme is excellent and flows very well. Acoustic Army is always a treat and then we go in to a humorous Fee, with a nice amount of stage banter after Trey flubs some lyrics. A tight Melt closes the set.

Timber > Sparkle > Simple > Possum is just awesome. All of these songs go together perfectly and each have their own highlights within. It may be worth mentioning that the Possum is 17 minutes long. We get a nice YEM with extended sections in the intro. More magic happens when Bela joins the band. He is a little drowned out in Taste but still adds some nice layers. Poor Heart gives Bela his first chance to really shine, and he certainly does. We then drop in to some acoustic bluegrass that warms the soul... before finally reaching the aforementioned Slave.

Not discrediting the Bag or Ya Mar, as they serve their purpose and get things going, but this show just doesn't quit after Reba.

Penn42 Every time I hear a new Fall '95 Possum it immediately becomes my new favorite version. Fall '95 was Possum's heyday; they consistently raged that shit hard that tour. 11.29 is no exception. This one also has a pretty long and entertaining intro taboot, but it's still all about the jam. My first impression after hearing this jam was that it is the most intense one I've heard. That prompted me to do little survey of all the Fall '95 Possums I have heard (10.22, 11.12, 12.2, and 12.7). I re-listend to all of them back-to-back and concluded that my initial impression was right: 11.29 is king. October 22nd used to be my favorite, but now it's number two.

This version is so intense that I think it took something out of Trey, seeing as he doesn't take a solo in the following YEM. Worry not, though, Page takes two solos. He plays his normal organ solo, then moves over to the grand and takes another. It actually works out really nicely and the bass and drums jam is great too. And on top of all that we get a six (that's right, SIX) song Bela sit-in. Needless to say, this is a super solid second set. Worthy of multiple listens for sure.

The first set isn't too shabby either. The jamming highlights are a pretty good Reba and a usually tense Split. Theme is also nice.

Overall, a very good show with an especially raging second set. As Mike Gordon once said: "On a scale of 2 to 3, I'd give it a 3."
