Review by Gumbo72203

Gumbo72203 One of the strongest tour-openers in any 1.0 era. This show also has the distinction of being rather long. Set 1 clocks in at about 77 minutes, and Set 2 is just over 90 minutes with the encore coming in just under 15 minutes.

Mozambique would end up being repurposed into Scents and Subtle Sounds although I like this song just as much. An utterly fantastic choice for opener, although Trey struggles with some of the lines and him and Page aren't totally in-time together. If you gave this song to 1995 Phish, it would be even more impressive. I wish they would bring this one back; big peaks at the end reminiscent of the Camden Chalkdust which informed most major jams that year.

The big jams all deliver in this show as well. Just solid, all around. Standard-great in an era full of next-level greatness. Also notable for having 3 debuts, only 1 of which has since gone the distance in maintaining its place in the repertoire.
