|1997-11-16||Farmhouse||Denver, CO||5:26||Debut features Page deploying the now familiar watery keyboard effects he would use for most of the '90s, while Trey briefly shows off his Hendrix-esque skills in a culminating trill.|
|1997-11-16||Timber Ho||Denver, CO||16:17||Long intro to this big Set II opener featuring a jam that begins in typical "Timber" style, then shifts to delicate and serene major mode playing in the final minutes. Unfinished with a -> to "Simple."|
|1997-11-16||Hood||Denver, CO||17:55||A remarkable version in which the band repeatedly tests the "Type I" boundary after 12:30, with Page in particular altering the harmonic underpinning several times. Closes with a truly magnificent peak and > to "Izabella."|
|1997-11-16||Bowie||Denver, CO||17:32||Nice old fashioned "Bowie" that breaks free in a few spots and is flush with tension and dissonance.|
|1997-11-17||Tweezer||Denver, CO||16:00||Very popular version, but check out the highlighted versions in this table if this version does IT for you (especially those in fall 1997).|
|1997-11-17||Ghost||Denver, CO||21:20||Raging space funk. [The expected funk breaks into fantastic and towering blissful play, then shifts to great rocking and funk-driven jamming which gradually mellows. A fan favorite "Ghost."]|
|1997-11-17||JBG||Denver, CO||17:04||After concluding the song proper, the band keeps things rolling with 12 minutes of quality, nuanced jamming that is only subtly funky. -> to "JJLC".|
|1997-11-17||JJLC||Denver, CO||14:05||-> in from "Johnny B. Goode." Page rocks the 88s, then Trey leads the band in a blistering, intense blues fest.|
|1997-11-17||YEM||Denver, CO||21:29||A great, unconvential YEM to be sure... but still probably the most overrated YEM in history.|
|1998-11-04||Ya Mar||Denver, CO||9:35||A cool little jam develops with Trey plucking staccato notes, Fish rocking the wood blocks, and Mike playing way up high.|
|1998-11-04||Frankie Says||Denver, CO||10:20||A somewhat dark and low intensity groove with a swirling sense and cool effects from Page develops as the typical "Frankie Says" concludes and -> to "David Bowie."|
|1998-11-04||Runaway Jim||Denver, CO||11:32||Unusual, somewhat ineffable version, which features more by way of wide-open spaces than compact, in-your-face jamming. Trey's 1998 style and tone is clearly on display, and the band does eventually coalesce to enter a bit more by way of a rocking, extended jam (listen for Page's interesting, and varied, contributions) which, in time, > for "Moma Dance".|
|1998-11-04||Piper||Denver, CO||17:40||A nice building intro leads to a hard rocking straightforward "Piper" jam until 13:40, when the jam mellows into a nice low-key and rhythmic groove with delay loops. > to "2001."|
|2003-02-18||Moma||Denver, CO||11:34||Average, somewhat slower than usual version gives way to a hazy jam with a very "2.0" feel. There are "DEG" teases just after 9:00, which are the highlight. Unfinished, peters out somewhat blandly and -> "LxL."|
|2003-02-18||LxL||Denver, CO||13:29||After the initial jam, this version gets very serene but is still rhythmic. It then turns a bit dark with a shift to minor key that resolves back to major key and an upbeat sentiment, ultimately building to a great peak.|
|2003-02-18||YEM||Denver, CO||22:45||"YEM" -> to a "Lion Sleeps Tonight" VJ!|
|2003-02-18||The Lion Sleeps Tonight||Denver, CO||2:12||-> in from "YEM." A capella version serves as the vocal jam for "YEM."|
