westbrook This is a pretty average show for Spring 1994. There is a SBD available from the spreadsheet, which is nice, but the acoustic songs are barely audible. The Landlady is a solid opener and leads to a standard Runaway Jim. The segue between Fee and Foam is cool; they don't do that too often. DwD is a standard guitar-led jam that was the norm for early Down with Diseases. The acoustic songs come next, and, as I mentioned, they are difficult to hear on the spreadsheet recording. Tela is always nice to hear, and Poor Heart cranks up the crowd before the set-closing SOAM. This SOAM is the highlight of the first set for sure. It gets very frenzied in the middle, cools off for a little, and then ratchets the energy back up for the end, as any good SOAM should. Set 2 opens with the somewhat common 1994 combo of The Curtain>Sample. The pair works well together. My Mind's Got a Mind of its Own is a good opportunity to hear some bluegrass that is audible on the SBD recording. The Run Like an Antelope that follows is the highlight of the second set. Trey teases Layla several times in the intro and beginning of the jam segment, and the rest of the jam is dissonant and frenetic, which leads to a great machine gun peak. Mound, Squirming Coil, Divided Sky, and Bouncing Around the Room are all pretty standard. Set 2 closes with a nice segue of Big Ball Jam>BBFCFM. The Encore of Amazing Grace(also barely audible) and Bold as Love ends the show in style. In conclusion, this is a "standard great" Spring 1994 show, with SOAM and Antelope being the highlights.
