Review by Miguelito

Miguelito There are a couple of highlights in this show that are worthy of checking out but I still think 10.8.94 is the better show from the beginning run of this tour. The listener should keep in mind that this being Fall ‘94, even average versions of most tunes are very well played.

Sample to open. I’m not the biggest fan of the tune but I like the placement. Next comes Divided Sky, opening things up nicely. A typically great Fall ‘94 version that hits the spot. A few songs later we get Stash, which is a solid version, followed by Guyute. This song was still in its infancy but this is my favorite version of the 3 they had played so far.

The band brings it down with a few acoustic numbers (that are challenging to hear on this recording) before closing the set with CDT, a short and sweet, but rather uneventful version.

Much of the second set is solid. Esther makes an appearance, which is always welcome. And then there’s the Tweezer. It’s a pretty good version and shows further signs of what’s to come in Bangor, which is now less than a month away, as it gets more exploratory than the previous take on the tour. That being said, it’s an interesting version but I wouldn’t say it’s a must-listen.

The rest of the tunes that complete the set are fine, with Slave making its tour debut and, like much of the rest of the show, is a solid but unremarkable version. Fish does offer some fun banter right before Love You, which is a treat.

Overall, this is a decent but not extraordinary show with only Tweezer really being worth more than a listen or two.
