fhqwhgads Sand is a worthy opener, though not jammed Type II, and the remainder of the first set has a commendable setlist. Reba, Possum, Runaway Jim, Maze, and Split Open and Melt are all heavy hitters. The real story of this show happens to the Chalk Dust Torture > Light > Tweezer from Set II, comprising almost exactly 56 minutes of JAMS. However, not much here is all that memorable stylistically in the sense that a watershed year like 1997 would have you thinking of a specific jam for years to come--perhaps even to this day. The Tweezer to end the triptych is pretty peaky. I also like that Sing Monica appears in this set; it's one of my favorite newer Phish songs, predominantly due to the very clever lyrics. Backwards Down the Number Line makes an abbreviated appearance in the encore > Tweezer Reprise. This is probably a slightly over average-great show, mostly thanks to the breadth and depth of jamming on display, but the lack of truly time-honoured music makes me rate this one just a 4 out of 5.
