|1989-05-13||Whipping Post||Syracuse, NY||12:34||The second jam, which begins around 6:30, is very improvisational. Following some mellow Trey and Page-led grooving, the jam builds energy, launches into deep outer space (seriously), then returns to "Whipping Post" with strong Mike and shredding Trey.|
|1992-05-09||SOAMelt||Syracuse, NY||8:57||Creative version with an unusual (for this early period) shift to major mode in the jam, followed by dissonant playing and some incredible trilling by Trey near the conclusion.|
|1992-05-09||Tweezer||Syracuse, NY||14:23||Trey hits on a cool theme in the jam that is repeated a bunch with Mike. Excellent pre-94 version. "DEG" teasing from Trey, Mike and Page.|
|1994-11-04||Bowie||Syracuse, NY||15:12||Great tension and dissonance combined with moments of melodic beauty and calm. Like one of the big November '94 "Tweezers" with many movements, and all packed into a 10 minute jam.|
|1994-11-04||Weekapaug||Syracuse, NY||10:27||A '94-style funky breakdown jam leads to a spirited "CYHMK" jam before returning to "Weekapaug" for a high intensity peak, with a great "CYHMK" ending.|
|2016-07-10||Winterqueen||Syracuse, NY||8:57||After a thoughtful, contemplative start, the jam gains momentum, moving into a faster paced, uplifting section with great, clear playing by Trey, and solidly grounded by Page.|
|2023-07-23||KDF||Syracuse, NY||18:46||Firmly in the conversation for best "KDF" to date, this version diverges quickly with a driving, upbeat jam which then becomes more textural and hard-edged after 9:00. It then reverts to major for the stretch run to a strong peak which Trey hammers home with a memorable melodic hook.|
|2023-07-23||Tweezer||Syracuse, NY||27:53||Begins with a brief major tangent but then reverts to a typically rocking "Tweezer" jam, albeit in a different key, then finds its footing again with a segment anchored by Trey's off-kilter, cyclical lead. From there, it builds more conventionally until the main riff returns, seemingly to bring things to a close, but the band really makes a meal out of this denouement by running through different permutations of the "Tweezer" theme, reintroducing Trey's mid-jam riff, and closing with a Moog-ified final volley, then -> "Oblivion".|
|2023-07-23||Oblivion||Syracuse, NY||20:58||The second leg of a mammoth 1-2 punch following "Tweezer", "Oblivion" proves to be a prime vehicle for synth-drenched improvisation. A late-night, portentous atmosphere persists until the pivot to major shortly after 11:00, bringing to bear an encouraging blissful payoff.|
