fhqwhgads Much like 9/2/11, the first Dick's setlist-gimmick show, this show suffers a bit from the limitations of (in this case) spelling something (backwards, no less): Phish has a deep catalogue, but they have to make some critical decisions on song diction to fit within the spelling. This is probably one reason why Harry Hood is one of the shortest versions ever, or at the very least the shortest in 3.0. But the show opens with a great Ghost, and there are some nifty rarities in Icculus and Esther, as well as the Phish debut of Little Feat's Easy to Slip and a now-neglected reading of Mike's Say Something. The Sand jam features some great playing by Page, but after that, aside from the segue between Hood -> Silent in the Morning and the bustout of Oh! Sweet Nuthin', this show is less memorable for the jamming or even the 2013-vintage Type I than it is for continuing the popular Dick's tradition.
