Review by Capricornholio

Capricornholio This is (rightfully so) one of the most beloved of all Phish shows so I won't add too much about the big jams that everyone already knows and discusses.

Every Phish song that has a "standard" version is a facsimile of one or an amalgam of several "ideal" versions of that song. A prototypical version of that song. This Limb by Limb is one such "ideal" version. It is unremarkable in both length and scope when compared to subsequent "standard" versions, but without it these subsequent versions could not exist. This Limb is flawless and delightfully down-stated. A touchstone by which to measure future Limbs.

Also, this is IMO one of Page's very best shows. He is on fire throughout, but especially in the BOAF Jam.
