Review by Capricornholio

Capricornholio If 7/5's sloppiness was brought to you by absinthe, then 7/6 was brought to you by cocaine. The entire show is dripping with balls-to-the-wall Rock and Roll bravado. Almost every song is played with an increased vigor and bumped up tempo. The two marquee jams from this show (Ghost, Piper) are both shreddy rock fests. It's not without it's sloppiness (Golgi, yikes!), but certainly an improvement over the previous night.

Having said all that, this show is slightly overrated. Not that its not good (it is), but I'm not sure it deserves the legendary status it enjoys. There are other shows from 98 and even from this European tour that I would have selected to be released before this one (Gray Hall, hello). This Ghost is often in the conversation for GOAT, and it is good, but its not even the best version they played that week (GRAY HALL, HELLO).

Highlights: Bag -> Ghost -> Cities, Limb, Piper -> Makisupa

4/5 Grade A Phish
