Review by Capricornholio

Capricornholio One of the great cases for "setlist flow" making a show. The big highlight of the first set is the post Horn jam that could almost be a Siket disc outtake with its effortless ambient chill. Second set highlight is the Tweezer -> Free. In my mind calling it a "California Love Jam" is a little bit much. It goes on for under two minutes and just sort of interprets the chorus of California Love. At any rate its a standard/great Tweezer with a flawless "->" one of the best Free's there is. Free just gets funkier, slower, and more sparse as it goes. Truly a version to seek out. If you only take two things away from this show it should be the post Horn jam and Free.

Having said all that, this is a curious choice to have been one of the first LivePhish releases. A solid show with a couple of highlights, but there are several still unreleased shows from 98 that are more deserving of the LivePhish treatment (either night of the Gorge, hello?).

3.8/5 Solid B+/A- Phish.
