hmi1892 This show is my personal favorite of the "At the Roxy" box set. Though it lacks the spontaneity and musical craziness of the previous night, it is not without it's own musical highlights. Suzy starts off with a unique a cappella rendition of the opening line, which sets the stage for an interesting night of music. The mid first set has some very cool variations by Page that make this version stand out from others I have heard. The first set also includes strong versions of Punch and Chalk Dust and ends in a fiery set closing Antelope.

The second set starts off with a shot of energy in Axilla, and follows with a nice Curtain. The Stash -> Manteca -> Stash that follows is one of my favorite early versions of Stash. The segue into Manteca is crisp and fun, and the Stash that precedes it brings some serious heat. After Manteca they go into a brief spacey portion before quickly segueing into a beautiful rendition of Lizards. The rest of the second set is standard fare for the times, with some funny Trey and Fish banter about McDonalds and condoms.

The encore too is special, with an appearance by the Rev. Jeff Mosier on banjo to help with some bluegrass standards and a completely unexpected bluegrass version of Good Times, Bad Times
