|2004-08-14||WotC||Coventry, VT||15:19||Jam breaks from the standard at 11:00 into a mellow groove that builds energy and > to "Runaway Jim."|
|2004-08-14||Runaway Jim||Coventry, VT||12:23||Very improvisational, "Type II" version with a -> to a very improvisational, "Type II" "Gotta Jibboo."|
|2004-08-14||Jibboo||Coventry, VT||15:23||The yang to 4/16/04's yin. Tight playing for '04. Dark and grimy up front, but once it pushes through to the heavens this "Gotta Jibboo" is breathtaking.|
|2004-08-14||Antelope||Coventry, VT||13:10||Jam segment rages practically non-stop, and Tom Marshall assists with the "Rocco" lyrics.|
|2004-08-14||Bag||Coventry, VT||20:07||Nimbly textured and surgically precise like the big '97 "Bags?" No. Highly improvisational, well played AND a great listen? Absolutely. This version is MUST-HEAR, like 11/21/97, 12/30/97 and 9/14/99. The Coventry "Bag" is full of "2.0-style jamming," is played very well overall, and it's highly listenable. -> to "46 Days."|
|2004-08-14||Bowie||Coventry, VT||12:57||Trey talks about writing "David Bowie" for 4 1/2 minutes before the song - well worth hearing. The jam itself is pretty decent with a nice little shift to major mode and an intense ending.|
|2004-08-14||Twist||Coventry, VT||16:36||A decent jam develops which has an underlying Mike and Fish fueled groove that continues almost throughout. Trey at times uses a lot of distortion, and his seeming lack of direction gives the jam a disjointed feel. Great -> to "The Wedge."|
|2004-08-14||Stash||Coventry, VT||20:42||While the composed section is far from spotless, the jam is very good and multi-dimensional, including a nice move to major mode followed by some great exploration. Unfinished with a > to "Free."|
|2004-08-14||Free||Coventry, VT||9:54||Some sweet Mike bass, then gets very quiet with just Mike and Trey playing, then Fish and Page jump back in.|
|2004-08-14||Drowned||Coventry, VT||26:06||Very raw in parts (at least Trey), but a serious piece of improvisation nonetheless. At the 7 minute mark, the band gets very quiet and almost stops. Trey plays solo for a stretch, and briefly addresses the crowd. Around 12:30, the other band mates rejoin in a very upbeat and rocking jam that accelerates into near fury by 21:30.|
|2004-08-15||CDT||Coventry, VT||13:46||Extremely improvisational version which leaves "CDT" behind near the end and -> to "Possum."|
|2004-08-15||DwD||Coventry, VT||19:02||Very unusual version. The first jam segment is strange, spacey, and Trey sounds off-key at times. Then there's a second jam following the closing riff (without vocal refrain) which has some interesting moments and is pretty soulful.|
|2004-08-15||SOAMelt||Coventry, VT||31:04||Skip the composed section (ugly) and go straight to the jam (released on Live Bait Vol. 5), which is excellent, extended and improvisational. The final 6 spacey minutes are a combination of sad, eerie and haunting, with a hint of optimism near the end. Unfinished with a -> to "Ghost." One of many great jams from the morass of Coventry.|
|2004-08-15||Ghost||Coventry, VT||17:30||Through a crack in the fabric of space-time a horde of flaming orange locusts cascaded down the fetid slope of manure, became a cyclone of debris, limbs, and offal in the muddy bowl then coalesced into a sheet of light which rapidly withdrew upslope back into the void of infinity. [-> in from a strong "SOAM." The jam breaks into an angry, rocking groove that grows dissonant, tension-filled, and includes Trey's eerie yelling and digi-guitar effects.]|
|2004-08-15||Piper||Coventry, VT||9:25||Blistering, fierce, machine-gun Trey, akin at times to Hendrix at his best!|
