waxbanksMike's new bass provided an element the band didn't even know it was missing, and this show is the first joyous exploration of that element. If you're a Phish fan you should have the album 'Slip Stitch and Pass,' which is a defining document for the band. The Wolfman's > Jesus, Mike's > Lawn Boy > Weekapaug, and dramatic Cities opener are (unsurprisingly) the must-hear portions; Wolfman's Bro is the slinky, slimy highlight, a first-of-its-kind funk jam that establishes the template for the rest of the year. This is one of those few historically-important Phish shows that remains a great listen, and along with the 'Remain in Light' set it kicks off an astonishing growth period for the band.
Score: 18
