waxbanks This first set is one of the must-hear sequences of Europe '97, from the dancefreak rave-up into Cities to the unearthly quiet of Horn > Funny > LxL. Phish just never play sets like this in the U.S. - they can't, in those big rooms and country sheds - so the small-venue shows of winter and summer '97 showcase an important side of the band that still might be new to today's fans. In this show and the July 1-2 triumph at the Paradiso we see an experimental alternate-universe Phish embracing delicate minimalism but not yet wedded to their crisp stateside funk. Don't you wanna go?
