As was the case in 2012, Jones Beach produced a slew of memorable material over a pair of shows in 1995. The first show of the run, on 06-28, included this fantastic Tweezer sandwiched around a Dave's Energy Guide which hadn't been played in nearly 500 shows. The band gets off to a great start running along a strong type I jam. Page mashes on his ivory sending crescendos behind the band's soundscape as they start to enter different territory and leave the structure of the song. Around nine and half minutes in, Mike leads a funk groove which Page picks up and runs with. At 13:30 Trey goes over to Mike and says something to him as they speed the beat up. Trey slowly moves down the neck of his guitar as Page fills out the background and Fish jumps all over.
A bit after 19 minutes, the effervescent Dave's Energy Guide starts to grow out of the jam. This hadn't been seen in it's full glory in 479 shows (3/8/91). It, of course, had been teased plenty of times including as recently as six days before in Canandaigua, NY (Finger Lakes Performing Arts Center). The band eventually hops back into Tweezer. Towards 25 minutes, a full on type II jam emerges and Mike begins playing a bassline that sounds very similar to the Mario theme song although many would likely say that is crazy.
Right before we hit the 28th minute, The Breeder's "Cannonball" grows out of the music. The band eventually slows it down as Trey plays a chord repeatedly and the wonderous jam eventually comes to an end.
Thanks to Dave (again!) for uploading this with some quality audio.
