Review by OrangeSox

OrangeSox The last stop before closing out what might have been the greatest month in Phistory, this show, especially the first set, represents to my ears the most complete synthesis of what that month means to a dedicated listener to The Phish from Vermont. Every song therein is tinged with a golden hue, starting with a knarly Runaway Jim which more or less begins a stretch to start the show that is among the greatest beginnings of any ever before. Every song through Split in the opening sequence is worthy of mention, a couple of them in huge ways. How the band came back to a second set is a feat of mental stamina that belongs in the record books, and it's nothing to slouch at itself. There's nothing not to like, even the tapes sounded great. A must-hear show for passionate ears.
