Review by yam_ekaj

yam_ekaj another quality show. contained a lot of absolutely sick jamming. certainly not amongst the finest ever played at dicks, but that's a high mark to achieve.

first set kicks off with high-energy sequence of moma>final hurrah, gumbo, each containing some nice 'mustard' on their type-1 jams. access me was a fun choice, not played since alpine '12. funky bitch raged as it always does. next came the highlight of the set (and perhaps the show)--a monster type-2 ghost. pretty much immediately this jam went out there, moving between major and minor key sections. incredible, must-listen phish. tube provided another highlight, with a fantastic blissful section before the move to blues. mountains in the mist is a nice choice for a cool-down. drift while you're sleeping is not my favorite song, but ymmv. the end certainly is euphoric.

second frame was a flow-fest, with some great improv mixed in. a mike's groove to open with a hydrogen is always going to work for me, with a nice jam in mikes, a fairly accurate rendition of hydrogen and a sprawling weekapaug. 46 days raged as it often does, and SYSF had some great moments. a late-set DWD? i'll take that all day. this version was another one for the books, well worth multiple relistens. segue to NICU was quality as well. bug and the wedge are always great to hear, and a standard slave closed the set. haven't heard brian and robert in a while so was happy to get that, and then standard zero.

all in all a great saturday show, but still leaves sunday to really blow us away. so much left on the table for tomorrow--tweezer, YEM, reba, simple, fluff, 2001, the list goes on. cannot wait.
