Review by n00b100

n00b100 I have listened to this show at least twice and there's mostly nothing that I can really recommend (the Bowie's not too bad, I guess), but the Ghost here is my favorite Phish jam of all time and probably will be even after they hang it up. I've described the 7/20/14 Ghost as compressing everything good about 2.0 without indulging in what's bad about 2.0, and that's kind of how I think of this Ghost - compressing everything great about late-90s ambient Phish without indulging in the worst of late-90s ambient Phish (no small feat, given how long it is!). Mesmerizing (gotta bite from the jam chart, sorry) grooves, spacey playing from Trey and Page, and - starting at 15:41 on the FTA recording - one of my favorite passages in the history of this band's oeuvre, the moment when Trey hits on That Lick and Mike Gordon has the moment I will always remember him for, that zone of serenity where you can't help but focus on the bass player (the bass player!). Again, the rest of the show is perfectly fine, but the Ghost will live forever and there's a fabulous SBD floating around that you should get your hands on right this second. Yes, this second. Go.
