Review by Scott

Scott Among many other great moments documented in other reviews, I love the swagger of Trey's licks in the latter half of Mike's solo in Free, and Page's triumphant entry into Meatstick.

This is also my all time favorite Theme simply because Trey pulled one of the most gloriously melodic solos of his career. He doesn't leap in at the end of the long build, instead playing 4 bars of chords, a piece of restraint that pays off with the following minute of bliss. That restraint was repeated in YEM to great effect. It isn't a whole-band jam, and it doesn't need to be in the context of a show already chock full of type I and II glory. I usually rewind this and listen to it twice or three times before proceeding with the rest of the set.

Besides Big Cypress and maybe 12/31/95, this is my favorite phish show ever in >100 attended and 250+ recordings. OMG I love this show.
