Review by Palmer

Palmer How in God's name did I miss this show? I have kept a honest routine with seeing Phish during the holiday's in Albany for years.
Anyway sitting on the couch reviewing this amazing, mind altering show something good did come from it. My cousin who I introduced and took to his first show was in the Pepsi for this. I guess my work has been completed. Filling the younger generations with the music of Phish is what it is about, but I can argue that giving isn't better than getting when it comes to this show.
SET ONE- Party Time, a solid opener that continues to grow on me. Stealing time, I really wish they played this to the peak. Uncle Pen > Sanity> Foam, Why oh Why did I miss this show??? kicking myself several times for good reason. Walk Away, NICU, Alaska is a good breather for the mayhem that was created. Split Open, Holy!!! Love this tune. Joy > Vulutes, BWDTNL a good way to end the show and bring us into Set Two.
Set Two- Seven Below > Ghost, may possibly be the highlight of the entire year, decade or century for that matter. Seven Below was played to the highest moment and continued to grow and grow into a deep deep jam of jams. One of the top 10 jams in Phishistory. Cool it down > Jibboo, Let me lie is nothing but static or feedback coming back from the Seven Below > Ghost jam that was performed. Wolfman's > Julius. How can they even continue playing after melting faces and taking names is beyond me? Encore- You Enjoy Myself, I am and continue to be at a loss of words, this show is maybe one of the best Phish shows at the Knick, and that is including the 1995 YEM festival. Glad for those who were in attendance for this show, the Pepsi continues to be a hot spot for amazing playing for Phish and to those who wrote off Phish back during the hiatus take a listen and revise your options. 5/5. Perfect.
