Review by Palmer

Palmer Gave this one a re-listen and was not at this show however would like to post a review of the events in the Bryce Jordan Centre on that December evening in 1997.

SET 1-

MIKE's SONG- A sick 16+ min MIKE'S!!!! to start things off, one of the most electric openers I've heard in sometime, but 97 was off the chain for the most part anyway.

CHALKDUST TORTURE - Always fun and energizing, not that anyone needed to be awaken after that bone shattering Mike's.

MY SOUL- good cover, enjoy the all out Mah- mah mah mah it's my soul.

STASH- Enjoyable and going places, a very non typical version from a very non typical band.

HYDROGEN- strange placement but I adore this song.

WEEKAPAUG- Energy packed version, energy packed set.

DOG STOLE THINGS- Trey likes to play this, it's just, eh.

BEAUTY OF MY DREAMS- slowing the set down a bit, the guys have to be getting tired in this all out Ironman.

HORN- Good one from Rift, doesn't get much notice.

LOVING CUP- standard cover

SET 2-

JULIUS- Knew it was coming and they delivered the goods.

SIMPLE- Dear God! 30 mins of ambient jamming and unique space. This is why people go to see Phish, because they put on a performance not a show. Really good version, my favorite thus far.

JERRY THE MULE- Love it, kept that spontaneous 1997 energy alive.

AXILLA- came back to the basics and glad they performed Axilla and not sample. Good choice.

HOOD- The hood's in 97 were my all time favorite, yet another to add to the list. All the hood's in this era were spaced out, ambient flowing, and contained that nice percussion from fish. Ideal.

ENCORE- Fire. This show was fire. Very excellent Mikes, Simple and Hood.
