Sweet Adeline and Amazing Grace were performed without microphones. Divided Sky contained a Woody Woodpecker theme tease from Trey. Antelope included a Simpsons signal at the beginning and All Fall Down and Oom Pa Pa signals during the jam. YEM contained a Louie Louie tease. The second set kept returning to BBFCFM, as the three verses were completely spread out. Trey sang the verses of Fee through a megaphone.

Review by westbrook

westbrook You'll find many of the usual suspects in this setlist, but if you're familiar with other shows from this period, you'll also know they're performed precisely and forcefully and are definitely worth your time.
The highlight jam of the first set naturally comes during a Stash with some real teeth. Mixed with the ferocious "Type I" jamming are a few forays into the unknown, whetting our appetites for a whole lot more to come later in the show (hint: it's the RLAA->BBFCM->RLAA sandwich).

2001 gets things going in the second set with a much more intense build-up before the drop into the song proper than typical and leads directly into this show's calling card. This is truly one of the best exploratory versions of Run Like an Antelope in the band's history. In a distinctly late '93/'94 manner, this jam ventures in a multitude of directions both before and after BBFCFM. Ranging from a bit of Eastern klezmer to brilliant "Hose" jamming, there's plenty of compelling music here to enjoy. Along with the exploratory movements, there is a Grade-A build to the peak and an extended Rye Rye Rocco section with a little reggae breakdown and a bass and drums section. By the way, this whole segment was released on Live Bait 8 so there's no excuse not to track this down even if you have scruples with AUD recordings.

Sparkle through YEM is played relatively straight except for the It's Ice jam. Although not as frisky as others from the tour (arguably the improvisational peak for the song), it is still a plus version that you'll be happy to hear. The set ends with the band juxtaposing BBFCFM with Amazing Grace to a rather humorous effect.

The bottom line is that this show features one the best segments of the tour and if the band is playing that well, you won't go wrong hearing the rest.

Review by ontape

ontape My first show. Looking back 21+ years later (ugh). I was in high school and a big Deadhead, interested in El Phish but not totally on board yet. Thoroughly enjoyed the show but IT didn't happen for me until my next show, 12/30/95. (And then the following night over and over again.)

I remember the BBFCFMs the most. Hadn't heard it before, grew up a punk/metal kid and couldn't believe what was going on.

From my vantage point now? A pretty standard first set and a wildly fun second set. You'd get no complaints from me if I saw this set today.

Bob_Loblaw Standard ‘94. But that’s not a bad thing!

First set has a lot of go to’s from this year. But Stash is especially strong. Everything else is well played but nothing really sticking out.

Second set (as usual) gets a little more interesting. 2001 the typical opener starts this one. Antelope starts off a little different and then segues into BBFCFM which will be the reacurring theme for this show. It’s Ice is strong. This YEM is the highlight of the show to me. Fantastic execution and just powerful. The “Louie Louie” tease in YEM is also great. Annnnd more BBFCFM

Standard encore.

Overall an average show from this year. But that still makes it worth checking out, especially if you like BBFCFM.
