|1995-10-22||Possum||Champaign, IL||15:00||Intense, fantastic version with off-key jamming, amazing trilling from Trey, and an unusual ending that -> to "Catapult."|
|1995-10-22||Tweezer||Champaign, IL||15:49||Amazing!! Great segue into "Makisupa."|
|1995-10-22||Slave||Champaign, IL||10:23||Mike is noticeably strong throughout. Only with this rock solid foundation can Trey and Page layer on their magic dust.|
|1996-11-08||Reba||Champaign, IL||13:34||Trouble in the composed section is quickly forgotten when the band begins the jam in atypical fashion, with incredibly cool playing from Fish offset by uncharacteristic - for the era - effects. Really cool. Stop / start playing becomes more direct, before Trey modifies his tone and the jam passes through a highly improvisational passage, notable for more marked syncopation. A false peak works to set up a fist-pumping relase.|
|1996-11-08||Maze||Champaign, IL||11:46||> in from "2001." Mean, nasty guitar licks from Trey before the whole band ratchets up the intensity into a cataclysmic inferno of percussive violence and gut-ripping tension.|
|1996-11-08||Simple||Champaign, IL||18:09||Following the conventional "Simple" outro, another Page-led jam develops with Trey on the mini percussion kit. Then Trey takes over, leading a fiery guitar-based jam.|
|1997-11-19||Llama||Champaign, IL||5:55||-> in from "Bathtub Gin." Blistering playing by Trey harkens back to the "Llama" Golden Age of '90 - '92.|
|1997-11-19||Fee||Champaign, IL||8:43||Ethereal outro with "Meatstick" quotes and a -> to a hot "Antelope."|
|1997-11-19||2001||Champaign, IL||17:13||Incredible from start to finish. This has it all! Tempo changes, jazzy grooving, full band mastery, sirens, and of course danceability. Brilliant.|
|1997-11-19||Wolfman's||Champaign, IL||28:18||Exploratory, extremely "Type II" version. Following some classic '97-style cow funk, the jam ranges from blissfully serene and settled ground, to an extended, Trey-led blistering and somewhat dissonant section, then on to Page and Mike dominated blues rocking. This "Wolfman's" has it all, including a sweet -> to a seriously funky "Makisupa."|
|1997-11-19||Makisupa||Champaign, IL||10:56||An extended, effects laden space jam begins around 5:45 and comes to a climax at 9:36, then drops right back into "Makisupa". Excellent version.|
|1997-11-19||Taste||Champaign, IL||10:09||"DEG" tease from Trey. Another strong '97 version. Maybe not up there with the incredible batch from the Summer, but Trey's solo is patient, very gradually building up the intensity from a relaxed base. Page is rock solid.|
|1997-11-19||Possum||Champaign, IL||13:48||Funky intro with great Mike. Excellent straightforward jam gets intense and chaotic, then turns bluesy and rocking.|
