|1997-08-13||Gumbo||Burgettstown, PA||19:22||The longest version to date starts off with a loose funk groove that develops into an air tight polyrhythmic groove which Trey eventually starts to solo on top off before fading out into "The Horse."|
|1997-08-13||C&P||Burgettstown, PA||14:59||The song portion is played slower than normal. The beginning of the jam is vintage '97 funk, goes into some classic "crosseyed-esque jamming" before drifting into some spacier realms.|
|1997-08-13||Runaway Jim||Burgettstown, PA||9:05||Incredible, straight-forward set-opener. What the jam might lack in terms of inventive improvisation (evinced earlier, and throughout Summer 1997's tour) is more than compensated for by way of tight, full-band play, and absolutely incendiary Trey, who puts on a clinic.|
|1997-08-13||2001||Burgettstown, PA||11:35||Big deep groove, with some sweet staccato patterning from Trey in the second jam.|
|1998-08-11||Wolfman's||Burgettstown, PA||11:10||"Type I" with extra mustard. Little sprinkles of improvisation all around on this solid version, including a great -> to the first "Time Loves A Hero" in 1,021 shows (last seen on 11/5/88).|
|1998-08-11||Fee||Burgettstown, PA||8:27||A nicely stretched out version of a typical outro in this classic pairing of "Fee" > "Maze."|
|1998-08-11||Maze||Burgettstown, PA||15:26||Obviously, Trey is playing the dissonance/tension card, but it's really Mike, Page and Fish in the background during Trey's solo who twist this extended version into the abyss.|
|1998-08-11||Runaway Jim||Burgettstown, PA||34:47||An epic summertime odyssey of exploration, and among the best "Jims" ever. Loaded with improvisation and near-ambient sound, the opus closes with a "Maria" (West Side Story) tease and a triumphant return to "Jim."|
|1999-07-21||Taste||Burgettstown, PA||12:37||Extended, unhurried and skillful soloing by Trey. Only very gradually does the band notch up the intensity.|
|1999-07-21||Mike's||Burgettstown, PA||12:53||Once again, the band uses the instrumental space in "Mike's" to launch a groove-based jam. In this one, there's a nice ebb and flow of energy, with great Page B-3 action around 7:30. As the jam progresses, it gets increasingly incendiary, with good '99-style Trey shredding.|
|1999-07-21||My Left Toe||Burgettstown, PA||16:08||-> in from "Simple." A swirling transition jam meanders for bit, but after 8:00 it finds its full stride, and the result is gorgeous and lilting improvisational playing. -> to "Caspian."|
|1999-07-21||Weekapaug||Burgettstown, PA||12:41||Mike is strong and out in front, leading another extended, funky breakdown jam. Gradually, Trey and Page take the lead back, riding atop the groove as it returns to "Weekapaug" proper.|
|2000-07-07||Gumbo||Burgettstown, PA||9:06||Real tight groove, with no one member leading.|
|2000-07-07||Divided||Burgettstown, PA||16:32||A completely different style of play, reflecting the sound of 1999 and 2000. Anything but hard rocking, it's graceful, emotive music, with Mike, Page and Fish leading the way.|
|2000-07-07||Maze||Burgettstown, PA||9:16||Like 4/5/98, there is a -> to "Shafty," but here it's in the middle of Trey's solo, and then there is a -> back to "Maze."|
|2000-07-07||Shafty||Burgettstown, PA||2:20||-> in from "Maze." The first serving of a "Shafty" sandwich (4/5/98) was open-faced. This one has "Maze" on both sides. -> back to "Maze."|
|2000-07-07||Maze||Burgettstown, PA||3:12||-> in from "Shafty" to complete this cool and unusual version of "Maze."|
|2000-07-07||Ghost||Burgettstown, PA||17:21||Polyrhythmic wormhole to 1995 which switches gears toward a wide droning gyre ornamented with spirals and dimensional flanging and a vaguely tubular resolution. [A haunting version which breaks into a distinctive dark groove at 9:00 and stays there, with little of the typically blissful jamming associated with "Ghost."]|
|2003-07-29||Jibboo||Burgettstown, PA||11:36||One of the best "Type I" versions with great Trey and Page interplay, an energized but not rocking feel, and a gradually peaking crescendo.|
|2003-07-29||SOAMule||Burgettstown, PA||10:12||"Wouldn't It Be Lovely" jam by Trey and others in response to Page's solo.|
|2003-07-29||Fee||Burgettstown, PA||7:51||"Maze" tease in a jam that sticks close to the normal outro with an added repeating riff from Trey. Page also contributes on the synthesizer before the -> into "Timber."|
|2003-07-29||Timber||Burgettstown, PA||7:45||Great segue -> in from "Fee." This is one angry mule! Packs all the rage of the earliest versions. At 5:25, almost breaks free from "Timber" proper, but shortly returns to the fold.|
|2003-07-29||McGrupp||Burgettstown, PA||9:05||In the only version from 2.0, the others join in with Page for more of a rocking jam, with great Mike and Fish. There is also a sense of back and forth between Page and the others, giving the jam energy and a playful aspect as it builds to a solid conclusion.|
|2003-07-29||C&P||Burgettstown, PA||25:50||This version is long and explorative, but it keeps rocking all the way to the 20 minute mark, after which it gets spacey. It's a very percussive jam. Even when it hits a spacier segment, the jam still moves with focus and direction. GREAT VERSION!|
|2009-06-18||Tube||Burgettstown, PA||7:15||A great 3.0 version with an extended clav solo from Page while Trey compliments him with funky rhythm playing and bent notes. Trey then takes the lead into the upper register. Later in the jam, Trey returns to rhythm playing and Page gets down on the MOOG.|
|2012-06-23||SOAMule||Burgettstown, PA||11:04||Most improvisational version in 12+ years that includes an extended Mule Duel with Page on theremin at one point.|
|2012-06-23||Simple||Burgettstown, PA||9:21||The typical jam breaks into a short dreamy, lightly pulsing abstraction, before settling into extended transition space and > to "Light."|
|2012-06-23||Weekapaug||Burgettstown, PA||10:20||Nice plinko-style funk breakdown, a second little Mike/Page breakdown, then more improvisational play before an unsual conclusion which -> to "Seven Below."|
