Review by TheStoryOfThePiper

TheStoryOfThePiper I am a very big fan of WaxBanks, but I have to wholeheartedly disagree with his review of this show. This one has been a favorite of mine ever since I picked up the LivePhish cardboard case in my local record store. And it is my very favorite Reba. This Reba is pretty tight, not perfect but nothing cringeworthy. In the jam section, the band follows Trey's meandering solo so well that I sometimes think they must have scripted it beforehand. It's too good to be made up on the spot, but that's just Phish.

The song selection in the first set is perfect. The Albuquerque is nicely timed after the peak at the end of Reba. Carini gets the energy flowing again, and the Oh Kee Pa/Suzy is a great ending. Suzy's never been one of my favorites, but this version is tight.

The beginning second set is a beautiful mess of noise and dissonance. Everything after Dog Faced Boy is pretty standard, but, again, nice song selection to close it out on a high note. And Josie Wales is always welcome.

It's possible that this one just resonates with me and it's actually not that strong, but it didn't get a LivePhish release for nuthin. I recommend.

This project serves to compile, preserve, and protect encyclopedic information about Phish and their music.
