|1992-12-02||YEM||Columbus, OH||19:13||The intro to "Wedge" is in the jam segment!!|
|1992-12-02||Possum||Columbus, OH||9:38||Interesting start to the jam leads to a tense, somewhat dissonant remainder with great playing by Trey.|
|1992-12-02||Tweezer||Columbus, OH||13:47||Weird jam, that was a "Big Ball Jam" at one point. Goes from beautilful/melodic to thrashing "Tweezer" jam off and on.|
|1993-04-20||Fluffhead||Columbus, OH||14:49||After successfully navigating the treacherous early sections, there's a palpable sense of energy as the lyrical section of Clod ends, leading to a super Page solo complimented by great play from Trey. An excellent Bundle of Joy gives that momentary sense of an impending train wreck, before the band explodes into a powerful, notably strong Arrival, featuring pounding Fish and great licks from Trey.|
|1993-04-21||Antelope||Columbus, OH||12:07||Unusual, intense and improvisational jam that almost sounds like a "SOAM" jam at times.|
|1993-04-21||SOAMelt||Columbus, OH||11:36||The jam from this fiery, intense version was attached to the end of the song "Demand" on the studio album Hoist. In a 1994 interview, Trey noted this performance marked the beginning of a watershed, 14-month period, during which the band really clicked and coalesced on "SOAM's" complex jam rhythm. Not surprisingly, the golden age of "SOAM" overlaps with this 1993 - 1994 period of technical mastery considerably.|
|1993-04-21||Weekapaug||Columbus, OH||9:12||Nice interplay between Trey and Page in the breakdown section, then the jam seems to be headed for home with a fiery peak, but instead veers off-course into more improvisational jamming, gradually diminishing unfinished, and (arguably) > to "Gumbo."|
|1994-06-22||Stash||Columbus, OH||10:51||Although this version mostly stays inbounds, the boys play the tension card to full-effect, and the ending is unusual.|
|1994-06-22||Simple||Columbus, OH||1:22||Crazy medley, where "Simple" is played to the melody of the Allman Brothers' "Midnight Rider" at one point, and segues back and forth to "Catapult" and "Icculus" in a must-hear "Mike's Groove."|
|1994-06-22||Midnight Rider||Columbus, OH||1:38||-> in from "Simple." Lyrics to "Simple" are sung to the melody of the Allman Brothers Band's "Midnight Rider." -> to "Catapult."|
|1994-06-22||Catapult||Columbus, OH||2:10||-> in from "Midnight Rider" Jam, part of an incredible version of "Simple." -> to "Simple."|
|1994-06-22||Simple||Columbus, OH||3:54||-> in from "Catapult," as this "Simple" medley of songs continues. -> to "Icculus."|
|1994-06-22||Icculus||Columbus, OH||3:42||-> in from "Simple." A high energy, highly amusing version of "Icculus," ripe with NBA references, appears midway through an incredible "Simple" medley.|
|1994-06-22||Simple||Columbus, OH||1:52||This concluding section of "Simple" follows a classic performance of "Icculus" and -> to "Mike's Song."|
|1994-06-22||JJLC||Columbus, OH||10:22||Trey brings the volume way down, then he and the band bring the intensity up to a near boil. Fish is great.|
|1998-07-31||Ya Mar||Columbus, OH||11:25||Pretty straightforward, but a nice, stretched-out, rhythmic jam with a cool closing.|
|1998-07-31||Roggae||Columbus, OH||8:34||More relaxed and cerebral than the version from Prague, this style for the jam section would become typical for most versions through late '00.|
|1998-07-31||Cities||Columbus, OH||15:17||Outstanding, R&B-esque, and quite melodic jam emerges from "Cities" proper that gets more and more rocking before cycling down. This is what the "HOSE" is all about.|
|1998-07-31||Free||Columbus, OH||9:53||Sweet, funky, almost bluesy groove. A great version.|
|1999-07-23||Ya Mar||Columbus, OH||11:22||Fairly ordinary, but much more spirited and up-tempo than 7/4/99, until the ending gets a little spacey.|
|1999-07-23||Ghost||Columbus, OH||16:48||Relentless molten neon electro rockslide that comes to rest in a glistening mountain lake. [Fish and Mike lead a fantastic, uptempo groove, and as Trey pours it on, you can literally hear the audience get whipped into a frenzy, then soothed with a great outro.]|
|1999-07-23||BOAF||Columbus, OH||25:23||An upbeat and snappy groove develops beyond "BOAF", which then bounces between spacey and pumped-up forays. The band was apparently playing along to a wild thunder and lightning storm occurring at the time.|
|2000-07-14||Timber Ho||Columbus, OH||8:07||More similar to pre-'97 versions with driving percussion and intense guitar work. A raging storm.|
|2000-07-14||Jibboo||Columbus, OH||9:36||While shorter, this one has a stronger peak than most with lots of classic Trey/Page interplay - definitely a top-shelf "Gotta Jibboo."|
|2000-07-14||Foam||Columbus, OH||10:10||Interesting version in which Trey strums chords during the build-up rather than striking individual notes (as is customary).|
|2000-07-14||Mike's||Columbus, OH||16:38||Awesome yin yang version. The 1st jam is a rocking, intense incendiary groove, while the 2nd is its serene, blissful and introspective foil. This version was the last "Mike's" to feature a significant 2nd jam until 2015.|
|2000-07-15||DwD||Columbus, OH||26:45||Another big and rocking groove-based jam that neatly -> into "While My Guitar Gently Weeps."|
|2000-07-15||YEM||Columbus, OH||19:59||This jam is why some people hate jambands. A noodle factory. (but I still dig it) The jam just segues into the VJ (no WUDMTF lyrics). (No B&D.)|
