westbrook The short first set contains solid playing, but not much jamming until Split Open and Melt, which is very good. I also like the combination of Gumbo>Foam in the first set. The second set begins with Letter to Jimmy Page, which was busted out a few shows before this one. This is the only time LTJP has opened a set, and it is only one of three times that the song has not been played between Alumni Blues. The biggest highlight of the show comes next, in a great David Bowie. It has a long intro with Trey playing with an unusual effect that he would also use later in the set in Reba. The first half of the jam builds a lot of tension, before breaking into a Jessica tease, much like the classic 5/8/93 version. The evil ending includes Fishman maniacally laughing. The Reba which comes later in the set also has a darker tinge than usual, before concluding with a thrilling peak. It's Ice contains an unusual, excellent jam. This show also boasts the fourth and final Setting Sail ever played. Runaway Jim rocks hard as an uncommon set closer, while the encore consists of the common pairing of Sleeping Monkey and Rocky Top.
