Review by DollarBill

DollarBill The tenth show of the tour finds the boys in a new venue and in a new state. The first of two shows at the Carpenter Center is pretty well played with minimal mistakes and good sound from Paul as usual. Good recording.

Average Bowie to start with, maybe a few spots here and there while everyone gets settled in. Bouncing was pretty average as well. Trey says the wrong name (Leo) for the solo in Poor Heart leading to whispers of Cactussssss... Otherwise it was well played. Ice had a creepy middle section. Glide sounded like Trey was a pinch out of tune. Rift was better than the last two, but still loose in Fish's timing. I thought Stash was really good and a highlight of this show. Funny announcements from Page and Trey as a good Lawn Boy is dedicated to Delaware. I don't believe that Trey's solo is that rare for these earlier '90's shows. Maze was good, but the solo climaxes were a little off. Golgi is a solid closer for this well played set.

Good Jim to open the second set. In fact this is a pretty solid, well played set all the way through. Tweezer was another highlight. YEM vocal jam was great, especially Mike leading them into the Lion Sleeps part. Nice false Fishman intro as Trey goes into HYHU again to piss Fish off. Lengthwise is funny and long with a requested vacuum solo over it. Coil was good with great Page soloing at the end as usual. Cavern was actually pretty sloppy sounding including a vocal flub and the only real chink in the armor tonight after a really good second set.

The usual Grace was ok after the shushing. Tweeprise was good. Pretty standard encores for this tour.

Overall a very well played show tonight makes me give this one four stars to bump up the average score to about three and a half. Definitely worth a listen if you haven't heard much of '93.
