Review by DaReba

DaReba my fav phish show of all time ......clifford ball, centrum.................no way anyone can hear this and say they needed more phish. it would be a lie. I went to the night before wit friends from u of m at college prk. ,y my dude gave me a ticket for this night . i still this day don't know why i was the only one who went to this show after 5 of us drove from maryland for 10/21/96
this curtain opener is friggin note for note perfect !!! down to the "Baby's MOOOOOUUUUTH!!!!"!
crazy. loud aggressive. quiet delicate. perfect
into Runaway Jim i want to note this was the same opener for 8/17/96 the only other second set besides PNC bank arts 7/16/99 lol ( i'm sorry . theses guys are awesome) that I cream over that I've seen and will preach about. this Jim is sorta still 95ish but its so tight and huge you dont care ... you don't hear one instrument at all. its a whole metal animal on the tapes. There, at the Garden ,I was in another world. confident I'd chosen a great band then Trey took us to the nxt level in the Jim Jam!!! crazy ....they were full throttle 2 songs in!!!! a rest of the first set that was soo similar to the 1st set second night of Clifford ball but I didnt notice it while I was there. They were rockGIANTS.
not a bouncin fan but I love hearing the crowd scream at a phish show for whatever reason.
This Melt is FANTASTIC. HEavy type @ # whatever Fish is obviously listening to everyone they are all buggin out Trey is again just happy to be loud and roll this metal bll down Broadway!! crazy !! Loud i just remember being engulfed by sound.
there I was just floored . clifford ball melt is crazier and louder but this is sick.
Sparkle was sweeet!!! we danced. free is not my fav song but i beleieve they like toplay it they usually follow it up with something nasty everytme i see it live they follow with something amazing.
This Y.E.M was fantastic. i just remember people telling me o shut up. then everybody sceaming lol
on the tapes it is note for note perfext just how I heard it. The Garden was quiet my friends!!!
until that part!! BOOOOY!!!they ripped it. the vocal jam I was wondering loooking for a bathroom , my head was scattered happily!!.................
The Secong Set is one of the greatest performance moments of my life.
2001 into a Disease that was just blazing!!fro the begininn you could sense them busting out of the seams of The Garden. straight head banger Phish. hard core train wreck funk ball !!! I was just laughing looking around at the time. Listening to the tapes its ridiculous that this didn't win a Grammy.. Fish was on some drum drugs. Trey was so humble as to let page a Mike pump this metal audio animal to its full potential. This DWD gave me Volcano HEad!!!!
At some point Trey got on his drum set which I hate but this was such a musical animal youcouldnt hate. they were jammn hard.....
The opening note of Taste didnt do much for or the people around but but by the end I was wondering if try was mad at his guitar. Trey srtaight murdered this so much to the point that every other Taste has made me hate the song.Fish is just flying over the set. Trey's solo is one of incredible arena thought,acrobatics, GENIUS, MIKe is a BEAST!!!this is arena rock at its best.Page was happy to lend abiance you cant orchestrate... bananas!! when they brouhgt it back to the taste melody in trey's jam I was smiling from ear to ear...then te most unique Phish song that neeeds to be on the radio!!! MANGO SONG!
one of the great versions here. despte the feedback lol i love hearing the voice harmonies over the instruments!! Fish was so killer the whole night. so soft. Like an Arena Ed THIGPEN.. BEAUTIFUL. All the boys were humble to an extreme exgent tonight ..thats why they played out of their minds in my opnion. it seeme like they were each trying to be quieter than the other .Lawn-scent-Mike's all classic j-card jizz.The Weekapaugh is is what will be talked about forever and ever. When I aaw the dancers come out , yes I was faded, but the boys took it to CHUUUUURch!!!!! listen to this jam and imagine Trey fingering to some freak dancers on Page's piano! the Garden was floored! crazier than a three ring circus!!!!
THE GREATEST SHOW ON EARTH!!!!
the encore made me blind for 4 days.......
