Review by DaReba

DaReba WTF?!?!?! how this show gets underrated is beyond me...
one of my favorite tapes fa sho

This is easily one of the best Phish shows ever. This second set is classic material!! ;-0 anyone arguing this point is nit-picking. I remember people thinking we were going to hear a full Gamehenge at this show. I had tix for Cliff Balls so I was amped to hear this show.

the Second set is where its at but I'll get to that later.

The Wilson opener is heavy and tight. awesome. Nice weird jam at the end also. umm its more than that though. its a signal that this is no ordinary show.. buckle up!!!

the jam into DWD!! LISTEN TO THIS!! then listen to them a month prior in Europe. this was a band on a mission. They stick with the theme but what a theme it is!!! so jubilant. awesome jam. Fish continues his rapid growth that we see culminate next year but the rest of the band rides him and his set for a tight ,major key jam you can dance to forever!!

REBA!! the written part was played a little fast for me but perfect. the boys were on fire. when the jam starts is magic. Fish goes to the rim shot.. it's a beautiful thing.. with the snap of Fish's snare the band returns to the theme after a wavy tangent. they proceed to kill it. Reba fans will not be disappointed. TYPE II for a few bars then just Trey Rockstar
MAng Song is def one of my fav songs. beautiful.
Stash! at this point this is an above average 1st set
Ambient . Type II jam. for a minute u forget wht song is being played. Fish is just out of this world!! the end is ridiculous

If the show ended there it would be a semi-classic. but the second set is just off the chain!!!!
RUNAWAY JIM opener is a game changer...
This was the set that was traded the most for sure after the show. It's mainly because of this Jim at 15 min set a tone for the set. . It gets banannerrs at the 5:50 mark. then they just let the notes fly. then the clasic moment at 9:00!! Fish lays four to the floor and its dance central!! Trey gets on his set and Page makes it glow

right into a classic YEM!! no joke. every part. on point. loud. rock. the general rule is the lower Trey takes the band the louder they will get.... listennnn ;-) anthem. sick... i challenge anyone to find 5 better YEM jams . ...anyone ??? lol

Not a huge Tweezer fan lol ( takes to long to get going for me lol ) but this is solid. Mike lays the hammer down and Trey gives us a taste of his brain. so sweet. we follow Trey on a beautiful ride GLORIOUS!!
great octave work from the tension and releas masters!
A must listen!!

This show is a classic
