waxbanks With the benefit of some distance we can call these Hampton shows what they were: an important step, a liberation, a spectacular series of comeback concerts...and three decidedly middling Phish shows *on tape*. You should hear the Fluffhead just for the oceanic crowd noise, and check out the first few songs of Set II for a decent preview of the early summer improvisatory style. And try the Hood. But if you're building your Phish collection from scratch, come back to this one after hearing, say, a hundred pre-2004 shows. The show is more historically important than musically essential, y'know? Whatever the hell *that* means!


Phish.net is a non-commercial project run by Phish fans and for Phish fans under the auspices of the all-volunteer, non-profit Mockingbird Foundation.

This project serves to compile, preserve, and protect encyclopedic information about Phish and their music.
