Tweezer contained an In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida tease from Page and Trey briefly teased Buried Alive in Chalk Dust. YEM featured Tom Baggott on harmonica and a tease of Flash Light by Mike in the bass and drums segment of the song. Terrapin contained a Woman from Tokyo tease from Page and a Theme from Peter Gunn tease from Mike. After BBFCFM, Fish referred to Trey as “Eddie Van Anastasio." Donna Lee, Mike's > Hydrogen > Weekapaug, and Tela used to appear in this setlist between Reba and Oh Kee Pa in the second set, but because these songs do not appear in circulating recordings of this show, we have removed them from the setlist.

Review by TheEmu

TheEmu So the bulk of this show is, to me, another typical '91 gig. Mostly very tight, enjoyable, few musical excursions. I liked the Tweezer, and there's another very nice Chalkdust to open the second set. Trey has major problems with the start of YEM, and the guest harmonica player isn't all that. Pretty average Reba, with slop in the composed section but a strong ending (C-/C). The Tweeprise is also a little rough. So, through two sets, I thought this was a 3 star show.

Then the Encore came, and it was a blast. You have a truly unique version of Terrapin with an intro other than HYHU that has Fishman (and me) asking "What the hell is this?" But instead of waiting for them to quit playing whatever it was (I think Page is teasing Funkytown at one point, not sure) he just starts singing Terrapin, and they keep the beat of what they were playing before for the entire version. It's great! To follow this, you have one of the greatest versions of BBFCFM of ALL TIME. Seriously. How can you beat lines like "He's gonna fucking kill you! He's gonna kill you, motherfucker!" and "Who's smokin' pot? Jesus, I hate pot smokin'! Shit! 1...2...3...1234!!!" "Eddie Van Anastasio!" and, of course "I like to sprrreaaad ass! Yeah...spread it!! See you in the next room...wherever that may be!" Totally classic. I know these don't count as amazing musical highlights, but they're a ton of fun and were the highlight of the show for me. It may seem silly to award an extra star for spreading ass, but that's exactly what I'm gonna do here and go 1...2...3....1234 Stars!!!

Review by thelot

thelot Decent audience recording for set 1. Set 2 is an ok SBD recording. The pitch is a hair slow. The text file says Cass/2, but it sounds more like Cass 3/4.

Pretty standard first set for this tour. Highlights come in Sky and Tweezer.

Second set opens with an impressive early Chalk Dust. Afterwards Trey thanks Sean and Peter and the rest of the staff at The Front for many great nights. The intro to YEM is horribly botched by Trey but they pull it together for a really strong version. Tom Baggott takes a nice harp solo during the jam. Poor Heart see’s Fish do his call outs in between verses for the first time. They have some fun with Reba. Silly version of Suzy. They wrap up set 2 with a spirited Tweezer Reprise. The encore features a very silly (explicit)BBFCFM. Fish yells out “Who’s smoking pot!?!?” lol For whatever reason the Terrapin is cut from Relisten.
