thelot Low Gen. SBD source available for this show. However, there’s not much of the room mixed in, so the recording does come off sounding a little flat.

Possum, Ya Mar open things up. Cool Bonanza tease in Ya Mar. Trey continues the Bonanza teasing during Bowie’s hi-hat hijinx. Rocking Bowie but overall a pretty straightforward version. Before Oh Kee Pah Trey mentions that Al from The Samples let Page borrow his clavinet for this gig! Suzy benefits from this new toy, sounding more like something we’ll hear in the not so distant future. Solid version of YEM with the addition of the clavinet. Great interplay in the jam section. Unfortunately, there’s a pretty harsh tape flip during the B&D section. It picks back up towards the end of a trippy vocal jam. Nice transition into Lizards out of the VJ! Fire wraps up a pretty good first half.

A nice Reba starts off Set 2. Jesus Left features Dan Mosebee on harmonica. He’s no Popper but he’s pretty good. There’s a tape flip after Bag. The beginning of Donna Lee is cut. The second recorded version of Tweezer is up next. Huge upgrade from the version heard in Granville. Trey again introduces it as Tweezer So Cold. Page busts out the Clavinet again for Cavern. I’m surprised he didn’t use it during Tweezer! Cavern’s ending was a little stronger than Granville and still has “Penile Erector” instead of “Picture of Nectar”. The intro of Mike’s has Page on the Clavinet. Blissful Groove! Cool Twilight Zone tease from Page prior to Fishman mentioning that he has a new vacuum before Brain. Page uses the Clavinet again during the jam in Contact. Golgi wraps up a pretty good show. Afterwards, Page says “we’ll see you at the Boulder Theatre”
