Review by Palmer

Palmer One of my Favorite Phish shows. My First 97 experience, and it would be just that an experience. The crowd really seemed stoked for something special, and something special was just moments away.
SET ONE- Ya Mar took me by surprise as Phish usually does, Funky Bitch > Fluff, Limb By Limb. Wow! Phish destroys Darien. Free, CTB continued to bring progressive play from the lawn, Tela- One of my all time favorite Phish songs, my only time hearing this rare gem. Thanks guys. Trainsong > Billy Breathes, Continuing with the Billy Breathes Album in full force, To close the set a mind boggling Antelope.
SET 2- Chalkdust, Love me > Sparkle, Harry Hood. We are and have been taken hostage by Phish, this second set was becoming to be something out of the Twilight Zone, The funk and ambient jamming from Hood continued to transform the Darien Crowd into zombies of the funk. Col. Forbin, wow~ another Gamehendge rarity. What in Christ's Name is going on in this semi circled venue? Ken Kesey comes out with a circus montage, this is becoming to be a strange night. Then the long adored Camel Walk > BOOOOOOOOOOZOOOOOOOOOO! Taste to end the strangeness and the awesomeness of Buffalo 97.
ENCORE- Bouncing > Rocky Top, What a strange experience to say the least. For this being my First Darien show i arrived back to Darien lake for several shows after being injected with the phlow of greatness.
