Fenton Williams sat in for Chris Kuroda on lights. Rock and Roll included Low Rider teases. Camel Walk contained Wilson and Theme from Barney Miller teases. Little Drummer Boy appeared for the first time since December 2, 1999 (114 shows). Love You had Fish “playing” his new sonic dress, a garment woven from cassette tape that produced noise when touched with special gloves akin to tape heads.

Review by Feetoid

Feetoid No reviews? Well here's mine.

Big improvement from the night before, but yet another bunk non-Kuroda Phish experience. I had a lot of fun however, a friend of a friend got me into his box seats, meaning free food and BEER all show and easy piss access. I provided beers to my neighbors just outside the box, not an easy task with caterer/bartender/box security dude eyeballing me to make sure I didn't.

When Loving Cup came on it was ridiculous, the group who I'd provided beer to looked back at me with a big smile, too perfect. I was hammered so the song finally spoke to me which was good, cuz I wasn't the biggest fan of it prior (probably cuz I'd heard it too much).

I ate Nachos during Hood. Fun times.

Review by kenny_powers

kenny_powers It’s amazing how even in the midst of their nadir – Vegas 2004 – among all the muck and slop and cringe-inducing Trey shot voice and ill-placed ballads and meanding jams,

you can still find moments of inspired brilliance. Exhibit A would be the set I closing Taste from 4/16/04. Ho…leee…cow, Trey is posessed. That strung-out, uncompressed tone works so well and he deftly jumps between that tone and the more liquid, open, enveloping tone. I mean just listen to the section from around 7:30 to 9:00, with the jaw-dropper high note at 8:45. But best of all, IMO, is the run he does immediately after that. Like 8:50-ish to 9:00. That is freaking DYNAMITE! And the finale before the outtro is a series of wailing, crying, bleeding, motherfucking hanuting bent notes. Wowzer!

I think Taste jams are best dark, brooding, and evil and this one has that in spades. I also think that is the best, most polished set of the run...which I realize isn't saying much at all.

also, the soundboards at that time were so pure and unfiltered (or sterile, if you like), with no extra audience mics for ambiance like you have nowadays -those things would normally be a major minus because it makes all the flubs and shot voice that much more noticeable, BUT Trey’s guitar comes out so clear and piercing loud, it’s like it’s mainlined right into your jugular. Page’s piano also sounds incredible in that mix.
