metawhy This is the Phish sound I love. They come out after a rain shower in GIN, this one starts out slow and then Trey just adds layer of layer of gooey, stringy texture to the song. It is that 1999 tone that is so beautiful and thick. The song winds down, and the band plays a few newer numbers, very patiently, with some odd noises in the dead air between the songs, like new toys being sounded out. The Maze is amazing, not a raging one, but a beautiful expose on tension and release, complete with a bathtub gin jam.

Set II gets off to a great start with Coil > Free. This Free needs to be heard to be believed. Like the version on 7-31-98, this groove is THICK. Also of note in set II is the debut of Bug and My Left Toe, an ambient masterpiece that sounds so good slicing through the Kansas sky.

Check this show out when you have some time to sit down and listen closely, it will be rewarding.
