Review by fhqwhgads

fhqwhgads This was a 3-night run at the Fabulous Fox Theatre in Atlanta, beginning with 11/9/95. You can see my reviews for the two previous shows on their respective setlist pages (I wasn't there; these were written based in retrospect upon the recordings on phish.in.) Cars Trucks Buses is a rad opener > a "Mike's Groove" whose "meat" of the sandwich as it were is A Day in the Life and Poor Heart... a truly imaginative approach to the standard Mike's Song > I Am Hydrogen > Weekapaug Groove. Mike's Song takes a somewhat more inventive than usual (for 1995) approach to the then-typical Trey-percussion-rack jam (Trey, at this time, had a little percussion set that he'd forsake his guitar for, temporarily, in order to color jams in a more grid-like fashion that relied less on his prowess as a lead-guitar bandleader.) Weekapaug Groove is pretty reliably "shreddy," with some intriguing space in the jam that definitely qualifies it for Highly Recommended status. The Ya Mar and Stash from this set are also worth giving a tilt and whirl. David Bowie as the second song in the second set is long, but not really that remarkable beyond average-great qualifications: it does break into some typical-of-1995 sub-funk (not sure how to describe this other than "clattering," as coined by @waxbanks I believe, as in "clattering, Rube-Goldberg funk" about a certain Wolfman's Brother from 1997.) Fluffhead and Run Like an Antelope are probably the keepers from the remainder of the set, though I certainly enjoy the HYHU-less take on Suspicious Minds, as well as the Acoustic Army that opens the encore.
