This volume of the Summer ’94 highlights series covers a stretch of the tour for which there are few circulating soundboards.
Only 1.5 of the 5 shows played in Chicago, Maryland Heights, MO, and Hebron, OH (July 23 – July 29, 1994) currently circulate as soundboards (a full Chicago/Soldiers Field show and a Maryland Heights/Riverport Amphitheatre second set). No shortage of great stuff, though.

- Jam Out of Terrapin: Great, as usual. This one slides in behind the same show’s Playin’ jam very comfortably.
- Estimated: 20 minutes long with jazzy sidetrips.
- The Wheel > Attics > Sugar Magnolia: 22 minutes of as-played pleasure.
- Improv: Between Stations: This is one of the coolest ambient-mode drums/space segments I’ve found. A locomotive that drifts in and out of signal range.
- Yeah, I opened the mix with “Samba in the Rain.” I’ve included two performances of it in this Summer ’94 series, the first one a nice, precise execution, and this one, which cooks more intensely. Obviously, it’s not a great song, but the jam opened new territory, and it arrived so close to the end that the best version must be around here somewhere.
- Notable flaw: Second verse of China Cat Sunflower.
