Review by westbrook

westbrook Trey is on fire during this show. This Stash (one of the 'key' versions) is strong, although I don't know that I find it to be that much better than other versions from this period. A cool down with Horses>SITM seems like a good call after the thrilling jam though. The following Disease is brief but Trey shows some of that "fire" I mentioned at the top.
Mike's Groove is the next noteworthy performance. Mike's Song is fierce and Trey once again lets out the flames in Weekapaug. Lizards is cool because the beginning of the song serves serves as a quieter, relaxing piece in contrast to the preceding Weekapaug, but by the end the end of it, the energy is back up, and Julius cranks it up several notches higher. I don't think I've heard a more energetic and peaky Julius than this one. After the rousing Julius, the only thing separating us from another dose of high-caliber Phish in Harry Hood is Big Ball Jam. This Hood jam takes a little while to really get going as Trey lays back at the beginning, but he comes out frets blazing later on. There is a short stretch of arguably type 2 stuff before the final peak as well.
Don't expect to be able to hear the un-amplified encore songs very well, but this is a strong 4-star show.
