Tsac77 Loved it. Almost felt like it wasn't going to go back into Ice!

n00b100 One of the fun things about 2013, *especially* in the Fall, was how the band would sneak out little pieces of improv here and there during Set 1 in unexpected places, almost to make sure we were paying attention before they really brought the thunder in Set 2. Take, for example, this jam, where out of the usual It's Ice we get treated to a *disgusting* funky jam, with Trey's Echoplex (which rather firmly established itself as an exciting new piece in the arsenal) meshing quite well with Page on the clavinet and Mike whipping up an effects storm. It's not the longest jam in the world, certainly, but it's tons of fun (like the 11/2 Theme) and well worth the listen, as is the rest of 12/29/13's quite good first set (not to mention the all-world second set).

Runaway_Jay Immediately following the opening composed section the band dives into a black hole of funk. Sonic waves immerse the listener in a hyperdrive ride through mike's buzzing effected bass, page's clav storm, trey's echoplex and fish's wombat-style groove drumming. After they ride the black hole for a bit, they gently hover over their landing pad and gently end up back on it's ice with seemingly wffortless grace and beauty.

n00b100 A very nice and funky highlight from one of the most overlooked first sets in the entire catalog (not that it's exactly 11/17/97 I, but has *anyone* ever talked about this first set since roughly midnight on August 1, 2013?).

kipmat Like Reba and Foam, It's Ice was played at a frenetic tempo on this tour. This version is wilder and more chaotic, which is notable for such a structured composition.

therealburnham This should be in the jam chart. Gets funky and out there.

kipmat This fine is probably not on the jamming charts because the previous 3 performances and 5 of the following six performances are on the charts, which illustrates how great this song was for the band in 1993-94. The jam is shorter and a little more goofy than the others, but I love it, and I love this show and wanted to leave a little note to indicate that it wasn’t forgotten.

kipmat Nothing too exhilarating, but the jam sounds very similar to the standard YEM jam, which makes it a little bit cooler to hear Page solo on piano instead of the Hammond organ like he usually does in YEM. Pretty great for a new song.
