Review by MiguelSanchez

MiguelSanchez in my opinion, this run from 4/16-21/92 is one of the only string of shows that compares to the island tour in '98. this night is probably my favorite of the run.

any show that opens with buried alive is probably going to be pretty hot, and i love the pairing with a red hot possum. trey really gets nice and bluesy on this one, when he is not having some nice secret language fun. i love the early 90's versions of its ice. fishman has a nice loose feel on these early versions. batr is pretty straight forward, but the soa melt that follows is very nice, especially for the time. page has some nice licks in here. rift and fee are pretty straight forward, before ol' page storms out again on a red hot maze. then, check out this FIRST set closing sequence. we dip into gamehendge with an awesome forbin>icculus>mockingbird. as if that was not enough, trey buries an antelope closer before the boys take a break. what a first set!

sanity really says it all here. this song is always a good indication that the band is feeling a bit fiesty. llama gets them back in a tight playing mode and lizards works well after wards. then they blast off into a mind blowing mike's song. trey and fishman really take this one over the top before crashing into hydrogen. weekapaugh is no slouch either. horn and poor heart work well before the fishman segment kicks off. i love terrapin and this is a good take. a quick run of 3 accepellas works well before a rowdy suzy closer. monkey is monkey.

this show has some amazingly tight playing and a very unique setlist. it is straight up stacked, buried alive, forbin>icculus>bird, 'lope, sanity, mike's groove..... what a show!
