ND61400 So, on the one hand this is an official release from '95, which is unquestionably a good thing. One should never complain about an official release, let alone an official release from '95. The playing is as tight and energetic and fun as you would expect. It's a good show, and as filler you get the obscene Theme -> Tweezer -> Tweeprise from a couple nights later, which, hell yeah.

On the other hand, this is one of a handful of official releases that, while I'm happy to have it, does leave me scratching my head. Why *this* show? There are more than a few '95 shows that deserve official release treatment, and if you're looking for something from the summer in particular, I will enthusiastically point you in the direction of 6/26 SPAC, which is a kick-ass show.

As for this show, the Mike's Groove does feature a pretty slick (and unexpected considering where the Mike's Song ends up) -> from Mike's Song to Contact, and the Slave is a particularly beautiful rendition and probably the highlight for me.

Now, on to listen to 6/26...
