DaReba phishtraks.com thanks for the great reording

Trey kills this Chalkdust. For a heady show like this it was a great opener.
with a Funky Bitch follow you know the boys were waiting for this night.
Hot would be an understatement. Trey is on fire . No pedals here. 2 weeks ago this would have been a laid back experiment in ambient groove. This is an in your face rock song tonight.
Guyute this early ?!!? yes. .. I remember wanting to goto Red Rocks sooo bad knowing how inspired the set list would be. they do not disappoint

This is a heavy GUYUTE. by the end you are wanting more fantastic opuses by Trey. wish I was there.

SOAM!! A great pre cursor to the 8/17/96 Clifford Ball 30 minute behemoth . Trey wants to use those pedals !! lol he just keeps it raw mostly. great listen. This is loud boisterous rock god music. The end is just energy personified.

!!!!MAZE!!!PAge gets this MAZe off right. awesome jam. YOu ever heard of GUitar Wrangler?? This is Trey lol its sounds like the notes are being spiritually forced out of the guitar and he's doing all he can to hang on and interpret it for us. The rest of the band stays in maze theme territory making what Trey is doing so much more crazy !! BAnanans . Beserk. what ever word you can think of is the Treys jam. The end is just why you listen to this band more than any other. Must listen. Has to be the high-point musically for the band in the last 30 days .
Very important Loving Cup here. the last time they played this it was sloppy and cut off. This is my fav cover and I was very disappointed to hear a bad version. From Pages first chords you can tell this is a different story. For this period this is power. Trey had still not found the voice he will later on this song but it is stil a good listen .
FIRE first set
