Review by DaReba

DaReba smokin' , rising 2001 second set opener so much energy.

This DWD is hard core . For hard core phans only lol Trey sometimes amazes himself and sometimes the band amazes him. I believe all that happens int he first 3 min. of this jam. just straight rocking Phish!! no need to type II this right here!Did I mention Fish being a drum God! literally the only reason they have this arena filling sound. Trey lays back so much on this its just drums and the other three in a musical ball bouncing off the walls. Fish and Mike lay the groove using the same beat for about 7 minutes. Trey gets on the drums at some point and a raucous return to the them happens. a good time is had by all.

This is the best Taste I've ever seen in person. On the recording on phishtraks.com you can hear thr=e crisp power of Fish's drums. this Trey solo is very noteworthy. The minor beginning jam is crazy then the switch is triumphant. fully realized version of the song.

Mango smoothed things out. lovely.

The opening notes of Lawn Boy are fantastic. Page hams it up!!

Crazy Page solo during Scent of a Mule. awesome. The chairman of the boards!! He straight spazzes lol ! Trey follows with a great jam himself though. getting the crowd into it. An exercise in crowd control/love/appreciation/ and creativity in general. makes you wanna cry .. seriously. ....Page answers in similar scat style . even Mike jams his vocal note lol They were in rare form this night.

When I tell you this was the most amazing Phish night ever fa sure up to that point it is no hyperbole and its all because of this Mike-swept away-steep Frekapaugh . There is a great video on youtbe of this suite . Being there it was a complete assault on the senses. Weekapaugh already has a built in 'tug at your hear-strings chord progression". but add MSG , already 3 classic sets and some dancers and you have something that just left my tearing up . You must see the video. But the music itself is transcendent.

This is why I listen to Phish
