fhqwhgads It's another wide-ranging setlist for Night 2 in Hampton, Fall 1998. That's so significant because the Hampton '97 shows were sort of terse, in the sense that they focused less on "songy" sets and more on funk workouts. There's plenty of Hamptony energy in this two-night run, though. Sabotage, for example, seems to really get the crowd souped. But aside from Set II pretty much consisting of a setlong Mike's Groove, Simple goes to some really pretty, ambient-type textures; Free -> Ha Ha Ha -> Free is an interesting take on refreshing that song, and Weekapaug Groove has some extra mustard as the young'un's like to say these days. Tubthumping is also welcome to me, and was even back in 1999 when Hampton Comes Alive was released. I always love when Tom Marshall sits in on vocals (for two more examples of this, see the 12/31/95 Shine and the 7/16/99 Born to Run.) Phish was having a lot of fun this run!
