Review by Capricornholio

Capricornholio Another unsung gem of the Summer 98 tour. This one is my go-to whenever someone asks me for "a show I don't know about." It somehow never gets mentioned with other heavy-hitters from 98, but it is one of the best. The first set features an excellent Tube (complete with reprise jam) and closes with a great Antelope. The second set is just about perfect. After the standard Mike's Jam they move into a slow-rolling, throbbing, pseudo funk jam that segues flawlessly into a beautiful Simple which itself segues into the very mellow debut of Bittersweet Motel. The Weekapaug that follows trends to the funky side with the 4 measure rests that typified their funk playing of the era. Ghost is 20 minutes of psychedelic excellence that has a buttery smooth segue into the bust out of She Caught the Katy.

Highlights: Tube, Mike's Groove, Ghost->She Caught the Katy

DON'T SLEEP ON THIS ONE.

4.75/5, A+ Phish.
