Review by Mr_Incompletely

Mr_Incompletely What a great year for Phish. December 1997 is my favorite single month of Phish. Trey really does get the party started with some sweet riffs. Doesn't get to dark, but stays real funky. This Yamar is everything I love about Phish.Page has a nice solo during Yamar. Auld Lang Syne teased by Trey for a little before the Mike YEEEEAAAAAH part. Fish proceeds to have a nice drum solo. 4 World class musicians taking turns showcasing their talemnt.Love the My Sweet One bust out as well. They play it "up" as the bluegrass folk say. Beauty of my Dreams is played up as well. Wolfman's is typical funk. Really like Trey and Fish slowing it down, playing off each other before the Trey Effects kick in. Some nice whale call action, if you're into that sort of thing. Limb by Limb is standard bliss, as is The Horse > Silent. The Sloth and Fire heat things back up to end the set. The second set starts the funk back up with Timber. Mike's Song is hot, love Page on this one. Stop start jams around the 10 minute mark. Slows down into some beautiful notes Trey plays before a perfect segue into Piper. Piper is standard, nothing to see here. As is Circus (I do have a boner for this cover). Weekapaug Groove ends the set. This one is played up as well. Mike and Page trade solos at the end of this one. Fish gives us one more drum solo to finish off the year. Set 3 review will come another day, maybe.
