kipmat I've been doing my best to keep up with @KernelForbin's Summer '97 remasters, but this is the first show of the tour that I have felt compelled to review. And really, I just want to talk about the first set - one of the jammiest you might hear Phish play. NICU and Beauty of my Dreams are standard length, but the other six songs are jammed or at least extended beyond their normal boundaries. Stash has several tension-release builds and a great peak, and IMO is worthy of mention on the song's jamming chart. The run of songs from Twist through YEM is inspired and really well-played, even if each of the songs had admittedly better individual performances at other shows on this tour. I didn't feel like there was any let-up or "bathroom break" song in that whole stretch. The highlights from the second set are obvious, and also great, but don't sleep on this first set.
