Review by Penn42

Penn42 Every time I hear a new Fall '95 Possum it immediately becomes my new favorite version. Fall '95 was Possum's heyday; they consistently raged that shit hard that tour. 11.29 is no exception. This one also has a pretty long and entertaining intro taboot, but it's still all about the jam. My first impression after hearing this jam was that it is the most intense one I've heard. That prompted me to do little survey of all the Fall '95 Possums I have heard (10.22, 11.12, 12.2, and 12.7). I re-listend to all of them back-to-back and concluded that my initial impression was right: 11.29 is king. October 22nd used to be my favorite, but now it's number two.

This version is so intense that I think it took something out of Trey, seeing as he doesn't take a solo in the following YEM. Worry not, though, Page takes two solos. He plays his normal organ solo, then moves over to the grand and takes another. It actually works out really nicely and the bass and drums jam is great too. And on top of all that we get a six (that's right, SIX) song Bela sit-in. Needless to say, this is a super solid second set. Worthy of multiple listens for sure.

The first set isn't too shabby either. The jamming highlights are a pretty good Reba and a usually tense Split. Theme is also nice.

Overall, a very good show with an especially raging second set. As Mike Gordon once said: "On a scale of 2 to 3, I'd give it a 3."
