Jam Chart for The Squirming Coil (6 entries)

Date City Timing Notes
1990-12-28 New York, NY 8:00 A splendid full-band outro with melodic riffing that hints at the "Manteca" which fully emerges from the following -> "Tweezer".
1993-05-08 Durham, NH 10:13 Towards the end of Page's solo, Trey, and then Mike and Fish jump back in and kick off (by ->) an awesome, rocking and bluesy "Jam."
1994-10-31 Glens Falls, NY 10:05 A spectacular, transcendent end to a spectacular, transcendent show.
1997-07-05 Como, Italy 9:20 Page shines throughout this single-set, free, outdoor gig, so it arrives as a bit of a surprise that it's Trey who steals the show during the course of this patient and serene encore. To be sure, Page's play is confident and assured, but Trey's late (7:00) play is as unusual as it is welcome, his tone wavy and his phrasing pushing, but not quite breaking, the bounds of the song proper. Excellent version.
1998-12-30 New York, NY 12:50 Full-band jam in place of traditional piano outro transforms Coil from predictable (if beautiful) set piece into surprising vehicle for textural improvisation. Unlike 5/8/93, this is not an unmotivated reentry by the rest of the band, but a smooth, natural progression: Rather than step back, the rest of the band just keeps playing. (Thanks @qushner for the lovely description).
2016-09-03 Commerce City, CO 10:44 Mike's thundering basslines throughout the jam convince everyone, Page included, to leave the stage to let him finish off this beautiful and unique show-closing version.
Jam chart versions are selected because of improvisational and other characteristics that distinguish these from typical versions of the song.
The jam chart team has highlighted some versions with a yellow background; these are the versions the team believes to be especially improvisational, or otherwise notable.
