|1995-05-16||Lowell, MA||8:32||Debut. Jam section similar in tone, but less with percussion and with less Page than later '95 - '96 versions.|
|1995-06-26||Saratoga Springs, NY||16:16||-> in from a great "Down With Disease." Multi-movement masterpiece. Starts in typical (for 1995) style, but morphs into rhythmic, eerie and psychedelic piece. The jams then takes on a jazz-like vibe. After some quiet moments, picks up tempo and energy for a rocking, upbeat finale.|
|1995-11-22||Landover, MD||33:02||The second extended, highly improvisational "Free." This one is a monster with several movements well beyond "Free" proper and "No Quarter" teases and a "BATR" tease. -> to "Llama." Must-hear.|
|1997-06-14||Dublin, Ireland||11:48||The new or modern "Free" jam is hatched with funky, bass-led sound. Great Page on clavinet, organ, synthesizer and piano.|
|1997-06-24||Strasbourg, France||12:03||Nice funky jam that gets pretty rocking. Great Mike and Trey.|
|1997-07-02||Amsterdam, Netherlands||11:03||More of the modern "Free" jam, with a great bass-led breakdown and some good delay/resume action.|
|1997-07-06||Desenzano, Italy||10:30||Slow tempo, very funky jam with Trey taking the lead.|
|1997-08-08||Tinley Park, IL||9:25||Great -> in from a very solid "Wolfman's Brother." The jam while similar to the post '95 - '96 jam is it's own beast; very cool.|
|1997-11-30||Worcester, MA||10:36||-> in from a monster "Stash." The only performance in Fall '97. In addition to an excellent, extended version, the band tacks on a nice 4 1/2 minute ambient jam to the back end of "Free." -> to "Piper."|
|1998-07-15||Portland, OR||11:22||-> in from "Tweezer." An awesome jam develops that is unique, with great Fishman and Page on the B-3. Unfinished.|
|1998-07-31||Columbus, OH||9:53||Sweet, funky, almost bluesy groove. A great version.|
|1998-11-09||Chicago, IL||11:53||Nice rocking and funky jam that adds a little mustard to the typical "Free" jam.|
|1998-12-29||New York, NY||9:53||Trey out in front instead of Mike. Swirling metallic jam that sounds more '99 or '00 than '98. > to "Limb By Limb."|
|1999-06-30||Bonner Springs, KS||13:56||Starts in customary manner, with a lot of bass and nice Trey. A kind of echo-filled groove develops, very mellow.|
|1999-07-18||Volney, NY||10:26||-> in from a huge "Runaway Jim." Super lazy, summer-style Mike led jam. > to "Meatstick."|
|1999-12-15||Washington, DC||16:11||Jam starts in typical fashion, but then Trey hits the keyboards for an extended and very different version.|
|2000-06-11||Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo, Japan||10:01||After the initial bass solo, Mike and Fish lay down a really great groove for Trey and Page to play off.|
|2003-12-29||Miami, FL||11:36||-> in from "Ghost." Jam starts in customary manner, but then features an excellent bass and guitar duet/jam.|
|2004-06-17||Brooklyn, NY||10:18||-> in from an epic "Moma Dance." Sick bass by Mike. Maybe the best straightforward version. Great interplay by Trey and Mike.|
|2004-06-26||East Troy, WI||12:05||> in from a big "Boogie On" -> "Ghost" combo. This one has a really excellent jam.|
|2004-08-14||Coventry, VT||9:54||Some sweet Mike bass, then gets very quiet with just Mike and Trey playing, then Fish and Page jump back in.|
|2014-11-02||Las Vegas, NV||8:03||Strong "Type I" version with lots of amusing quoting from the previous night's "Martian Monster."|
|2017-07-18||Dayton, OH||10:51||Trey pushes through a few early miscues to share in Mike's incendiary groove. Via rhythmic shifts in meter and tone, Trey constructs a mellow, effects-enriched jam, which, colored by Page's wraithlike atmospherics, coasts atop Fish's steady beat, before driving the version to a strong conclusion.|
|2019-12-28||New York, NY||9:42||Active Trey/Mike interplay makes for a more dynamic jam than typical in this plus version.|
|2020-02-20||Cancun, Quintana Roo, Mexico||8:15||Builds on Free's recent uptick (12/28/19) in a big way with extra attention being given to the usual funky jam section (watch out for Mike's thumping bass) and then > into the always-welcome "Shipwreck".|
|2020-02-20||Cancun, Quintana Roo, Mexico||2:59||-> from "Shipwreck" as "Free" creeps back in and concludes a great segment with "Rescue Squad" quotes thrown in for good measure.|
