My Friend began with a cappella lyrics to the tune of Back in my Hometown. Nellie Kane, the Phish debut of Beaumont Rag, and Foreplay/Long Time were performed acoustic.

Review by Miguelito

Miguelito I really like this show and prefer it over much of the earlier shows from this tour (with maybe the exception of 10.8.14). The band seems to have shifted into a higher gear now.

Another MFMF opener, getting no complaints from me. The Reba that follows is a beauty. After The Sloth, we get a Melt that smokes! I really like this version, which is dark and chaotic. The rest of the set is solid, and includes the first Lizards of the tour.

The Peaches Bowie set II opening sequence is awesome. I’ll always take a Peaches, and the Bowie was more interesting and exploratory than the previous version from this tour. I’m enjoying seeing how several of the band’s tunes opened up this tour, and Bowie is no exception as we know there are some monstrous versions on the horizon (e.g., 11.14.94 & 11.26.94). I love this Bowie and it’s worthy of numerous listens. It’s probably my favorite thing that they’ve played so far on this tour. One look at the jam charts and you know this tour was a peak time for the song.

The rest of the set has some nice things going for it, including another mid-set YEM and a Hood with some really nice quiet moments. Good Times Bad Times brings the show to close.

Overall a strong show with a couple of really nice highlights.

Review by westbrook

westbrook This is a solid show with a very nice setlist but nothing is extraordinary. There are no best-of-tour versions in this show, just your normal Fall 94 excellence. The a capella intro to My Friend, My Friend is interesting. Reba makes an early appearance, and it is pretty good, but not nearly as good as what would come later in the tour (10/18, 10/31, 11/25). SOAM is very dissonant. At times, Trey's playing is similar to the end of an Antelope jam. The end of the jam is unusual and very dark. Trey's guitar growls, while Fishman pounds the drums. The Lizards is a nice departure from the darkness of SOAM. I always like to hear Guelah Papyrus and The Asse Festival section is played well. Julius and Sweet Adeline end a very nice first set.

Peaches>Bowie is always a great way to start a set. David Bowie is very good. It is definitely a precursor to the huge versions the band threw down later in the tour. Page is very good in YEM, and the jam overall is excellent. After a hot YEM, Nellie Kane through Foreplay/Longtime is a good breather. Trey remarks that 2 days ago, Fishman had never picked up a mandolin, and today, he has picked one up. Fishman also takes his first mandolin solo. A typically great Hood and Sample in a Jar end the set very well. A Good Times Bad Times encore is always welcome.
