ReeYees This was my favorite show at the time. First off let me just say that this is one of the best Page openers of all time. I’m not much of an Elton John fan but I do like this song and they killed it. Trey never lets up on Stash…enough said. The 3rd and final Gumbo of the summer and a monster version it is—over 19 minutes of heaven! C&P > Wilson (with Little Drummer Boy ending) is one for the ages. They didn’t play C&P again until Big Cypress. I’m glad this is in fairly standard rotation these days.

Once Trey shook off his vocal flub in Runaway Jim the 2nd set really took off. Ghost > Izabella should not be ignored. Izabella jumps out at you from nowhere. Every time I hear it now, it still brings a smile to my face and reminds me of the great vibes on the Phish Summer 97 tour. Everything is played well through the set but McGrupp stands out to me as being flawless and beautiful. 2001 is of course sick but it always was in 97, right?
