Review by Toby70

Toby70 My friend Matt took me to the show and we stood front row center. The band was close enough to touch and the energy was off the hook. I didn't know a song, but realized PHISH were extremely special. A Dead Head first, I am very glad that I chose to check up on them a little every year after. Many other Heads of the day could not make the musical transition. Forty or so shows later, my personally collection of songs seen is epic simply because I bought in early. I got my Forbin, Tela and Sloth before they put them in the attic. The band peaked for me at Greatwoods 1994, but everything after is still really cool. Now that Trey is sober, the shows don't quite transcend, but all the big tunes seem poised for rebirth. It seemed impossible to me that Fluffheads parts could still be executed, and Trey probably has to gear up for specific songs on specific nights, but to hear any of that early material attempted is inspiring. Still nead to hear Spices and Goodbye Head!
