Review by markah

markah I wouldn't call Chicago a catastrophe....it was at worst a "below average Phish show" which as we all know is still a typically kickass amazing show. Take another listen to the Wilson, Chalkdust, and the Hood (and not to mention the only 3.0 Carini so far) -- darkness abounds, perhaps, but I love that. 2001 and Jibboo were a blast live, of course.

Above all -- Number Line was one of the best version played (2nd only to the 8/16 SPAC version a few days later). Plus, And Paul & Silas was a treat for sure, and I loved hearing Windy City --- what a great tune! They need some to strecth out more on these odd-meter tunes. I can't wait to hear them jam in 7 or 9 some more. You know what a psychedelic beast SOAMelt has become...I think the potential is there for similar feats of greatness from Windy City or Sugar Shack.
