TTFF: The Grab Bag Continues…

7.4.2010 (Wendy Rogell)

Stash” 8.15.1993, Louisville, KY

A profound improvisational escapade.


Mike’s Song” 11.15.95 II, Tampa, FL

This “Mike’s” is a case study in Fall ’95’s arena rock intensity; a ferocious jam that dissolves into beauty.


Simple” 7.10.98 II, Barcelona, ES

Along with a slew of sound issues, the final night of Europe ’98 also featured this sublime, near 25-minute jaunt out of “Simple.”


Reba” 12.1.96 II, Los Angeles, CA

Most people are familiar with the monstrous “Tweezer” that opened this set at Pauly Pavilion at UCLA. The “Reba” that came later in the set, however, is a hidden gem.


Bathtub Gin” 12.31.99 II, Big Cypress, FL

One of the Big Set’s lesser talked about jams is still absolutely magnificent.


Ghost” 11.15.98 I, Mufreesboro, TN

Delivered as the second song of a mid-week stop in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, this version is another that illustrated the omnipresence of “Ghost” during Fall ’98. Coming in all shapes and sizes, this rendition was anchored in uptempo rock before moving into outright groove, quite the way to get the party started in a bare-bones college gymnasium.


Ramble On > Slave” 8.13.98 II, Vernon Downs, NY

A classic pairing from the end of Vernon Downs’ first set. When Trey hits the “Ramble On” line in the “Slave” peak—chills every time.


Tweezer -> Makisupa -> Antelope” 11.30.95 II, Dayton, OH

Let’s finish the week with another thrilling Fall ’95 “Tweezer,” this one from Dayton’s Nutter Center, not to mention the entire three song combo.
