waxbanks What a way to open a show! YEM segues unexpectedly into a rich Simple, and it'd all be gravy from there if the show didn't also feature a colossal multipart Gin and downtempo Twist > Scents. That's a pre-Undermind take on Scents, by the way - meaning the errant-laser-beam Twist outro transforms into the eerie Halloween intro to Scents (previewing the haunting Seven > Scents coupling on 8/2). Phish's jamming was getting pretty abstract by summer's end, but this show shares some of the winter '03 DNA while belonging firmly to what less tasteful Phish fans call 'the oxy years.' It's one of the most consistently inventive shows of 2003.
