Review by TwiceBitten

TwiceBitten I'd like to chime in to say that "insufferable" and "hot garbage" are not the words I would use to describe the "heavy metal record stuck on a loop" jam in Wolfman's. I don't think we should encourage inquisitive young fans to ignore this jam. Phish is a band that is truly committed to being weird and we should applaud them for it. If you can get yourself in the right mind state when listening to this jam and imagine this happening to you live, during the third song of the first set, you'll have better results. This kind of contextual listening is one of the most rewarding things about being a fan of the band. Once you've been to a handful of shows you can listen to any show and put yourself in the building when you blast the tape in the right setting.

This show is such an odd duck and I count it among the most special gigs the band has ever played. Stash -> Free -> Jam is some of my favorite music from the whole tour
