Review by waxbanks

waxbanks Spectacular show, well deserving of SBD treatment. When 30something fans get nostalgic about the late 90's, partly they're longing for their college/grad-school freedom and irresponsibility, but mainly they're thinking of astonishing setlists like this one. Phish doesn't do first sets like this one anymore. Damn, just *lookit*: there really are four genuine segue arrows on the *first set* songlist, AND a couple of ridiculous bustouts, AND an old-fashioned Ice sandwich, AND an out-of-nowhere Tube Jam reprise that had phish.net readers excitedly/confusedly scratching their heads on 12/8/97 (I know I was). And that's just the first set. The second frame is just ridiculous. And how good was Fall '97? This superb show was just the lite'n'easy followup to the cataclysm in Michigan just 24 hours earlier.

Get this show, obviously.
