A little shout-out to “Phone-it-in-Fridays” while I listen to this Monday night show. Of course, I’ve got a boatload of work to do today, so I just cannot phone it in. Listening will, necessarily, be interrupted by conference calls today. But I will listen!

Gotta love two great Jazz tunes early in this show: The Caravan opener and Magilla. That just doesn’t happen anymore, does it? And once again I am blown away by the peak in a ballad, this time it’s Fast Enough For You. Wow!! Much like If I Could, this song was just a great showcase for the type of slow building release they were just owning in this era.

Julius is again a rocking number. It seems to have settled into a groove. This is just the 4th live version of this tune, and they’ve clearly locked into a “way” of playing it. Fantastic!

2nd set opens with the first 2001 of the year and slams right into Maze. Pay Jorgon is the straight fire in these Mazes. Love it!

The rest of set 2 seemed pretty straightforward. My attention was drawn in during the YEM, though, for sure… and the “My Soul” vocal jam is solid as hell… especially since that song wouldn’t make its debut for almost three years!

Another fun little detail I noticed while listening today is Page on the Fender Rhodes for Suzy! Sounds fantastic. I can’t think of another Suzy where he does this… but then again, I’m just getting started on this 1994 quest, aren’t I??

Thanks for reading!

Notes: As the trampolines were brought out for YEM, Trey announced that his understudy (Brad Sands) would stand in for him in the tramps routine. Brad took Trey’s place on the tramps; Trey sat in a chair during that segment of YEM, reading a newspaper. YEM also included Trey trading teases of Sunshine of Your Love with Page, who alternated with Sunshine of My Life teases. The YEM vocal jam based on My Soul. Possum subsequently contained teases of Sunshine of Your Love. Amazing Grace was performed without microphones.
