ForgeTheCoin Really enjoying this listen, and very encouraged at how *loose* the playing feels... Even night one of Tahoe, for it's imperfections, had a looseness that reminded me of older times, even 80's vintage, fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants Phish. So great to hear. I'd rather hear that looseness because IT is what allows the magic to happen - to creep in.

After hearing about this show I was really stoked to give it a listen, and just have - enjoyed the hell out of it. Loving the Camel Walk and Stash!

I'll be the differing opinion on the Tweezer - while it is a MONSTER, I much prefer the first half (pre-Wooooo). The second half feels a bit more stitched together, as fun as it is. A return to an almost identical Chalkdust jam that opened the show, and then a Frampton 'Do You Feel Like We Do' themed jam... Super fun and upbeat, but much less interesting music IMO than the first half...

But I am sitting here with my headphones on... I know without a doubt that if I had been at that show and witnessed that high-powered jam in person I would have been goosebumped to the core...

So glad to hear the band having fun, TAKING CHANCES... Perhaps eschewing the super tight, constrained jams, and allowing a bit more hey-hole flow to happen. I hope the evolution continues for years to come. Really looking forward to see what the rest of this tour has in store.
