spreaditround SET 1: My Friend, My Friend: Super hard edge, Trey must have been crushing his mic stand as a guitar slide – sounds awesome.

Sparkle > Simple: Outstanding segment. Sparkle is breakneck and Simple is soaring!!! ->

Runaway Jim: Absolute face melter!!!

Foam: This is the band at the very height of their powers. The way they mess with this and that – it is incredible. Silent jam. Just unreal. Toying with all of us.

Lawn Boy: Standard

Split Open and Melt: This one gets very heavy and moody – very quick. Not long after that in lands in a quiet place and then out of nowhere…!!!! ->

Buffalo Bill -> Makisupa Policeman: Gets very, very spacey and psychedelic then out of nowhere it gets this heavy metal, hard rocking jam – what in the hell????? Sounds like it is going BBFCFM but then…it takes a HARD left turn into -> Rift

First set summary: Exceptional! Could not ask for a better set. The transitions are what make this set great.

SET 2: Down with Disease: Unbelievable jam, this is a break out version in terms of jamming for this song. ->

The Man Who Stepped Into Yesterday > Avenu Malkenu > The Man Who Stepped Into Yesterday ->

Sparks: Wow, not seen since the Bomb Factory, legendary show 5.7.94 and not to be seen again until the Cow Palace, 11.29.96 which would be 173 shows later, pretty awesome!!! >

Uncle Pen: Standard

You Enjoy Myself: Wow, what a YEM. Page and Mike own this one for the most part. Awesome! Trey goes on to do his thing as typical but Page really plays a lead role in the version.

Hold Your Head Up > Bike > Hold Your Head Up: Standard. Banana hijinks.

Run Like an Antelope -> Sleeping Monkey > Run Like an Antelope: May the Force Be With You / Star Wars jam around 5 minutes or so. Absolutely cosmic Antelope. Gets way, way out there. All timer. Ridiculous jam. Face melting does not begin to describe this one. Lord have mercy.

ENCORE: Harry Hood: Mike and Trey get synced up in the early going of the jam, it is very sweet. This Hood gets very frenetic. Very nice peak!

Second set summary: From jump street, this set is amazing. DwD busts out of what it typically is, Sparks bust out and then it won’t be seen again for two years, and an outstanding YEM, Antelope and Hood. There is a reason why Fall 94 is held in such high regard. Happy to rate this show as a 4.6 out of 5.
