Review by Penn42

Penn42 1994 was thee year for Reba. This one doesn't even stand out when there's the likes of 5.27, 5.28, 7.6, 10.31, and 11.25 to compare it to; however, it is still really phenomenal. At first I was skeptical that this whole "Somewhere Over The Rainbow" business was going to be one of those jam halting ideas that drag on for too long, but I was glad to be wrong. The "Somewhere Over The Rainbow" jam is quite nice and fits well within the Reba jam.

The Split Open and Melt is abnormally long for the era and is pretty great as well. There is some really nice engaging jamming throughout its seventeen minutes. The Antelope does not particularly stand-out, just rages like usual for the era. However, right after the peak, it sounds to me like the band is trying to interact with the fireworks. They drop the Fish and Mike groove and just start making abrupt eruptions of cacophonous noise that pretty closely parallel when the fireworks go off. I'm not 100% percent sure this is the case, but it sure sounds like that could be it.

The rest of the show is par for the course. I hadn't listened to any Summer '94 for quite a while and this was a nice show to remind me why I like it so much. 4 Stars.
