Review by DollarBill

DollarBill Hidden gem indeed! First headliner in Canada, and twentieth show of fall tour. Excellent recording of an excellent show! Really exceptional for 1992.

Good opening Llama right out of the gate. Foam is smoking. Maybe a little wavering while they are getting settled in, but good overall. Sparkle was solid. I'm surprised to hear Cavern this early, but a solid version tonight. Reba is stunningly tight! Really good. Landlady was good. Melt was also super good tonight. Poor Heart had some cut parts early on from the recording source, but otherwise more good bluegrass. ATR was pretty tight, maybe a little loose at times. Right into a solid Bouncing with many ATR teases. Antelope started off a little shaky, but really recovers well and turns into a sick jam. The groove during the signals is sweet. Great way to end a great first set.

A good, solid Maze rips open the second set. Nice Page solo. Glide is well done by Trey until the very end causing a laugh and one of the longest pauses I've ever heard in a Glide to date. The crowd is really pumped tonight as you can hear some guy yelling glide over and over again. Curtain is also smoking tonight. The tempo is a little up there, and Mike is the weak link in an otherwise rocking version. Tweezer has an outstanding jam stretching this one to the fourteen minute mark. Rift's tempo also makes it a little off at times, but nothing really noticeable. Guelah is smooth and the Asse Festival part is spot on. Good grief and a YEM? Well done and a great vocal jam at the end. HYHU leads us into a super silly Brain from Fishman. Great vacuum on the last verse. Coil was good, although Mike had a few weak spots again. Nice Page solo. Golgi is a rocking closer to a really great second set.

Rare encore tonight and huge bust out, with Ride Captain Ride. Page and Trey do a great job on this one. Tweeprise rocks as usual.

Great show tonight! I can't tell you how great it really is. You must listen to this one!
