1990-04-28 Dorchester, MA 15:01 Breaks from the standard at about 5:30 into a dissonant and somewhat jazz-like foray with excellent Mike and Fish. No real return to "Antelope" before the "Rocco" section, which is nicely extended, cool and funky.
1990-06-01 Atlanta, GA 14:03 Awesome version with the "Reverend" Jeff Mosier on banjo and Oteil Burbridge on bass. Great intro, good jam with a huge peak, and then a cool breakdown jam featuring the bass acompanied with scat singing.

1992-03-13 Providence, RI 10:54 "Antelope" -> "BBFCFM" -> "Antelope." Intense, dark and exploratory jam in "Antelope" morphs and segues, then morphs again into Hawaiian/Three Stooges humor before return to "Antelope" to conclude. One of the best "Antelopes" ever.
1992-03-13 Providence, RI 3:16 -> in from "BBFCFM" to conclude this epic version.
1992-03-20 Binghamton, NY 14:37 An excellent, riveting and intense jam is followed by Fish on trombone in the pre-"Marco" section. Awesome version!

1992-12-03 Cincinnati, OH 15:02 Some cool "Cities" teases in the intro (last performance 9/13/88). The jam starts with a brief jam on Santana's "Gypsy Queen," then breaks into several distinct sections of perhaps not beautiful, but VERY exploratory jamming. Returns to "Antelope" with several peaks and Trey shredding.
1993-02-04 Providence, RI 10:37 Excellent and very different kind of jam that gets well removed from "Antelope." Great tension in an almost "Stash"-like way.
1993-02-10 Geneva, NY 10:28 Power strumming by Trey leads to some serious tension and dissonance. Fish is great.
1993-02-21 Atlanta, GA 12:25 Frenzied and chaotic version that briefly pushes out beyond standard "Antelope" several times. Page expertly adds dissonance to the harmonics.

1993-04-29 Montréal, Québec, Canada 12:41 Rocking version includes a brief jam on Pink Floyd's "Money" (4:45 - 5:20) followed by fantastic, very exploratatory jamming. Intense conclusion to the jam with Trey just shredding away.
1993-05-02 Upper Darby, PA 12:39 Barn burner version with intense, rhythmic and dissonant jamming midway and a screaming peak.
1993-05-07 Bangor, ME 10:29 Unbelievable staccato picking by Trey throughout the jam is matched by deft playing Page and Fish. A serious ripper.
1993-07-18 Pittsburgh, PA 14:51 Begins with a jam on "Heartbreaker" right off the bat, followed by a rocking, exploratory jam. The band then plays along with nearby fireworks which sounds similar to a "BBJ." Finally, they start into "Brother" but shift back to finish "Antelope."
1993-07-23 Wantagh, NY 11:46 Searing hot and extremely improvisational jamming, with several false peaks followed by gut-wrenching tension.
1993-07-28 Charlotte, NC 11:14 Frenetic playing and lots of little brief departures that stretch the boundaries of "Antelope" and then keep coming back. Trey's playing is incredible. Released on Live Bait Vol. 4.
1993-08-02 Tampa, FL 10:59 Sick jam with dissonance, rhythmic gyrations and soaring tension, plus a "Makisupa Reprise" jam in the "Rocco" section.
1993-08-07 Darien Center, NY 10:22 Power jamming plus typical August '93 all-over-the-map improvisation. Very intense with insane tension.
1993-08-11 Grand Rapids, MI 10:38 A jam on the Simpons signal and lots of gnarly, improvisational stuff including rhythm and tempo changes in a semi-evil jam.
1993-08-14 Tinley Park, IL 12:50 "Antelope" -> "Sparks" -> "Walk Away" -> "Antelope" -> "Have Mercy" -> "Antelope." In very good company with other major segue-fests, including the "Tweezerfest" (5/7/94) and "Stash" (11/14/95). What distinguishes this epic version is that strong improvisation is combined with melodic beauty that at times is even upbeat and inspirational. But it's also "Antelope" so expect no shortage of tension and dissonance either!
1993-08-14 Tinley Park, IL 6:36 -> in from "Walk Away." This fantastic "Antelope" and segue-fest continues and -> to "Have Mercy."
1993-08-14 Tinley Park, IL 2:00 -> in from "Have Mercy." Here concludes one of, if not THE finest "Antelope" versions in the history of the Universe.
1993-08-20 Morrison, CO 15:14 Very improvisational version with several good twists and turns including a jam on "CYHMK."
1993-08-24 Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada 10:40 Another strong August '93 "Antelope," with dissonance, improvisation, and shredding by Trey.
1993-08-28 Berkeley, CA 16:08 More incredible August '93 improvisation, with this version containing five distinct, magnificent jam sections, a Brady Bunch theme tease, and Secret Language.
1993-12-29 New Haven, CT 12:19 Strong '93 version that has a very unsual quiet section from 6:35 - 8:35 before returning to "Antelope."
1994-04-10 Buffalo, NY 13:28 Jam starts off with some good rhythmic changes, builds in tension, then there is a major break at 6:55 into some great and cool exploratory jamming which gets back to "Antelope" by 9:25.
1994-04-14 New York, NY 13:40 One of those great probing versions that leaves "Antelope," comes back briefly, leaves again, home again, off again, etc. etc.
1994-04-16 Amherst, MA 11:56 Bad-Ass jam with power jamming, rhythmic shifts, and more. Fish rocks. The jam winds down instead of peaking.
1994-04-20 Lexington, VA 12:03 A bit odd and quircky at times, but also very experimental and improvisational, and the jam closes with a raging peak.
1994-04-23 Atlanta, GA 11:58 A gripping version with nail biting tension and dissonance galore.
1994-04-25 Knoxville, TN 10:46 "Layla" teases, rhythmic gyrations, great staccato playing by Trey, and incredible Trey shredding for an intense peak.
1994-05-04 New Orleans, LA 10:03 This is a very sick and demented version, with someone (Fish?) screaming in the background at various points. Trey dedicates the jam to a good friend's baby, just then being born, and suggests naming him/her Marco Esquandolas.
1994-05-08 Bee Cave, TX 15:47 Imagine a crazed and panic-stricken Antelope crashing through forests and fields in a desperate attempt to escape some ill-tempered multibeast. Eventually, it succeeds, living to "Run" another day. That about sums up this one.
1994-05-16 Los Angeles, CA 5:54 "Antelope" ("Type II") -> "BBFCFM ("Type II") -> "Antelope" ("Type II"). A truly amazing jam which like 8/14/93 combines incredible improvisation with inspired melodic and musical magnificence. Released on Live Bait Vol. 8.
1994-05-16 Los Angeles, CA 13:12 -> in from "BBFCFM." This section of "Antelope" is extremely improvisational but also includes some melodic and uplifting jamming, while never forgetting its "Antelope" roots.
1994-05-20 Olympia, WA 12:06 Weird, experimental jamming with lots of angry dissonance, tempo changes, and a crazy build to the peak. Then at the very end, there is a cool Trey solo with subtle backup from the others.
1994-05-23 Portland, OR 13:55 Thrilling, intense, improvisational, and rocking power jam, followed by an extended "Rocco" section with whispering Trey: "Been you to have any cantaloupe?"
1994-05-29 Monterey, CA 11:14 Chaotic, frenzied, and blistering jam. Insane buildup to the peak with excellent screaming by Fish.
1994-06-11 Morrison, CO 10:36 Intense, gripping and high energy version from a show loaded with standout performances ("YEM," "SOAM," "Stash," etc.).
1994-06-16 Minneapolis, MN 12:39 This is a super-charged, full-throttle version with strong playing by Page and Fish.
1994-06-19 Kalamazoo, MI 13:49 Typically great '94 thrashing "Antelope" stuff until 6:25 when the jam breaks into a good settled section that percussively rebuilds with wild dissonance and buckets of tension.
1994-06-24 Indianapolis, IN 19:56 Very improvisational and multi-faceted version with several distinct "Type II" sections, including an uplifting "DwD" jam near the end. Released as filler for Live Phish Vol. 10. A heavyweight among "Antelopes."
1994-06-30 Richmond, VA 12:47 Far-ranging jam that gets well beyond standard "Antelope." Incredibly intense but not chaotic. Great strumming by Trey in the peak section.
1994-07-03 Old Orchard Beach, ME 13:01 Excellent, intense and cacophanous version where the band plays along to a 4th of July fireworks display. Released on FTA - Super Ball IX Part I.
1994-07-09 Mansfield, MA 12:16 Another strong version that weaves back and forth between "Antelope" and little brief departures.
1994-07-14 Canandaigua, NY 10:47 Insanely intense, driving, and dissonant jam, with excellent Fish just hammering away.
1994-07-16 North Fayston, VT 8:12 Wild-Ass crazy version from the last show of Summer '94 includes a -> to "Catapult," -> back to "Antelope," hilarious and related Fish/Trey wedding banter, lots of blood curdling screaming and yelling, and belligerent playing by all.
1994-07-16 North Fayston, VT 8:07 -> in from "Catapult." This wild, crazy and sick version of "Antelope" continues to a fiery and belligerent conclusion.
1994-10-08 Fairfax, VA 11:11 This is what an "Antelope" on steroids sounds like. Pretty high up there in the Intensity Hall of Fame.
1994-10-16 Chattanooga, TN 12:30 Dissonant and improvisational jam that gets way out there at a couple of points, and has a little Trey solo in the "Marco" section.
1994-10-21 Sunrise, FL 13:04 Chaotic and crazed version with a number of short but discrete exploratory departures.
1994-10-26 Boone, NC 12:53 Good exploratory section from 5:00 - 6:20, back to "Antelope," more foraging and then dramatic tension ratcheting.
1994-10-29 Spartanburg, SC 7:50 "Antelope" -> "Sleeping Monkey" > "Antelope." Fantastic improvisational playing with all the good '94 stuff combined with a seamless segue, then a return to "Antelope" for more exploratory jamming. Great version and song pairing.
1994-10-29 Spartanburg, SC 5:22 > in from "Sleeping Monkey" and this "Antelope" provides more exploratory jamming before winding down in good fashion.
1994-10-31 Glens Falls, NY 10:37 Well-played, mostly straightforward version. Shows just how strong 1994 was for "Antelope" that this one barely makes the cut.
1994-11-13 Erie, PA 13:03 Good solid improvisation in several parts, loads of tension with great playing by Fish and Page, and a full-throttle peak.
1994-11-16 Ann Arbor, MI 11:50 A thrilling ripper with lots of improvisational jamming. Following "spike, man" they tease or start into "Have Mercy" but quickly bail.
1994-11-30 Olympia, WA 10:03 "Antelope" -> "MSO" -> "Antelope" -> "Fixin' To Die." Awesome Fall '94 improvisation. The first section of "Antelope" is strong but par for this period. However the section following "MSO" includes some excellent, experimental jamming, and segues smoothly into the band's only electrified version of "Fixin' To Die".
1994-11-30 Olympia, WA 7:32 -> in from "My Sweet One." The second and very "Type II" section of "Antelope" charges away and -> to the electrified "Fixin' To Die."
1994-12-03 San Jose, CA 11:38 Another solid '94 "Antelope," with descending melodies, tension, dissonance, rhythmic variation, and a noisy, chaotic peak.
1994-12-09 Mesa, AZ 14:38 Thrashing, dissonant, innovative and unusual "Antelope" jamming, it's all here, including an excellent "The Force Theme from Star Wars" tease in the jam. "Suck the deer shit from the side of this hole!"
1995-06-09 Morrison, CO 10:32 Unusual jam. Sort of off-key. Sort of evil. Dissonant and anti-melodic. No real peak; it just fades into "Rocco."
1995-06-15 Atlanta, GA 12:15 A good thriller. Not as improvisational and exploratory as many '93s and '94s, but this one compensates with riveting tension.
1995-06-19 Noblesville, IN 10:53 Dissonant version with a little brief funky Page action thrown in the mix before returning for a blistering peak.
1995-06-23 Stanhope, NJ 13:51 1995's most exploratory, improvisational version. One of the "Antelope" clan which weaves back and forth between familiar ground and improvisation. The jam here gets out into some spacey and eerie Summer '95-style territory.
1995-06-26 Saratoga Springs, NY 11:28 Largely straightforward, but blistering hot jam with great playing by Fish and Page.
1995-07-03 North Fayston, VT 12:02 Dark and intense jam with healthy doses of tension and dissonance. Dizzying buildup to the peak with ballistic Fish.
1995-09-30 Mountain View, CA 10:36 Good improvisational version with rhythm shifts and great tension.
1995-10-24 Madison, WI 16:48 Although largely "Type I," this version is one of the most thrilling and intense ever. The tension and tempo start to crank up after 8:00, and even more so after 10:00. At 11:30 it sounds like "Rocco" is starting with no peak, but then there's a cool, thrumming jam section that sounds like an Antelope running, before building to the expected peak.
1995-11-11 Atlanta, GA 11:50 Jam starts off largely straightforward but gets more out there as it progresses with key changes and rhythmic bending.
1995-11-22 Landover, MD 11:11 Jam wastes no time dicking around but gets right into intensive and dissonant playing. Great Page and Fish.
1995-11-30 Dayton, OH 10:55 "Tweezer" -> "Makisupa" -> "Antelope." An excellent and intense though largely straightforward version which includes some "Tweezer" teases in the "Rocco" section.
1995-12-08 Cleveland, OH 12:00 Rhythmic-oriented jam that is ripe with great tension and dissonance.
1996-08-12 Noblesville, IN 12:29 Rhythmic variation plus good dissonance combine to put this intense version outside the box.
1996-11-02 West Palm Beach, FL 13:40 Karl Perazzo on percussion. -> in from a 20+ minute "C&P." Straightforward but an intense and spirited version.
1997-07-29 Phoenix, AZ 20:31 Awesome, extended, and uniquely remarkable version that departs into a low-key, melodic and exploratory groove that has moments of really beautiful, major mode jamming before working back into nasty old "Antelope."
1997-08-06 Maryland Heights, MO 15:51 Not way out there but has several sections that stretch beyond the typical structure, including a great "Makisupa" jam in the "Rocco" section with Page on theremin and Mike on a mini-drum.
1997-08-11 Noblesville, IN 13:20 The jam veers away from the normal structure several times, adding tension and anticipation when it returns to "Antelope."
1997-08-14 Darien Center, NY 13:31 Gets beyond "Antelope" at several points, including brief major mode action (5:40 - 6:30), rhythmic variation, a brief settle, and good tension building before mounting a serious and dissonant peak.
1997-12-29 New York, NY 15:55 Straightforward but well played jam, followed by some downright filthy funk jamming in the "Rocco" section.
1998-04-03 Uniondale, NY 14:16 Fish says, "If you're gonna run up on the stage, just don't let Carini get you" in the intro. This prompts hilarious "Carini's gonna get you" harmonizing throughout the song. Intense straightforward version with Funky Mike in the "Rocco" section.
1998-10-30 Las Vegas, NV 16:48 A minute of exploratory action (6:20 - 7:20) in a jam that otherwise is straightforward. But following "Rocco" there several minutes of eerie and spacey effects and chanting by Trey before the final closing.
1998-12-31 New York, NY 15:24 Jam breaks away completely from "Antelope" at 6:30 into a nice, slighty dark foray. Returns to the standard by 8:00.
1999-07-25 Noblesville, IN 16:26 Viewed as a groove-based jam, there is a lot of improvisation going on including some great syncopated jamming (which occurs again in the excellent "Suzy" that follows). But compared to versions from 1994 and earlier, there is no radical departure from the basic song structure other than a brief settle. For this period however, it stands out.
2003-02-15 Las Vegas, NV 12:03 Beginning of the jam is straightforward, but once they head for the peak, it's worth hearing. Quite nasty.
2003-07-17 Bonner Springs, KS 12:52 Jam breaks into an upbeat, major mode groove from 5:00 - 7:30 before returning to standard "Antelope."
2003-07-23 Noblesville, IN 14:42 Gets into a nice swinging, upbeat movement at 5:20 which continues until about 9:00 before getting back to "Antelope." Few versions since 1995 get as far removed from the basic "Antelope" jam as this one.
2004-08-11 Mansfield, MA 11:39 Very different version with no real peak and no "Rocco" section. Instead the jam fades after 9:30 into a really nice little melodic groove that > "2001."
2004-08-14 Coventry, VT 13:10 Jam segment rages practically non-stop, and Tom Marshall assists with the "Rocco" lyrics.
2009-08-01 Morrison, CO 12:21 Serious tension, dissonance, and rhythmic change-ups combine to distinguish this very good version from most 3.0 ones.
2009-12-30 Miami, FL 9:36 Short but sweet 3.0 version with multiple "Boogie On Reggae Woman" teases and riffs throughout.
2010-10-20 Utica, NY 12:14 Arguably the most improvisational version in 15 years, with multiple sections and "Guyute" teases taboot. Fish is critical here in promoting shifts in the rhythmic structure throughout the jam. Check it out!
2012-07-03 Wantagh, NY 11:54 Rhythmic changes, mode changes, suspensions, and melodic variation are key elements which make a version, and thus more interesting than the typical "average-great" one. This strong old-school, new-sound version uses all of these.
2013-07-03 Bangor, ME 12:33 Jam starts out predictably enough, then surprisingly breaks into an upbeat major mode groove. Old school peak.
2014-07-15 Canandaigua, NY 11:06 Dubbed "Fuegolope," there's a lot more to this strong "Type I" version than just teases, including a nice quiet section that builds with dissonance and tension to a fiery conclusion.
2015-08-22 Watkins Glen, NY 10:57 With an exception or two (11/30/94, 8/11/04), "Antelope" always begins and ends the same way. What's in between separates the great from the typical. This version nicely strays from the ranch from 4:50 - 6:15, and includes a nasty, gnarly and tension-loaded push to the peak.
2016-07-18 San Francisco, CA 9:26 Great percussion propels this bright, busy "Antelope," before Trey takes over, scattering some unexpected notes and nicely playing off Page. Skipping and dynamic riffing, coupled with nice tension, propels this solid version to a terrific show-ending peak.
Jam chart versions are selected because of improvisational and other characteristics that distinguish these from typical versions of the song.
