Review by oh_kee_dono

oh_kee_dono What can I say? It was my phish cherry popper! Great show from what I remember. I was in the navy at the time and we pulled into Italy just in time for the show. I couldn't go to the Florence show the next night though:( The highlights for me were..when the circus comes and then Free to the end.

Review by zsmith0307

zsmith0307 I love the setlist in the first set, but the playing is only so-so. The highlights are the Curtain opener (one of the best ways to open a show) and the Tweezer, which is very good but I found it to be more typical than my fellow reviewers. The Bowie ending is very forced but is redeemed by a nice first-set closing Tweeprise.

The second set has a very mellow setlist and doesn't feature many songs I'd want to see live. However, I do enjoy the flow of the set, especially the second half. The Stash in particular has a nice jam.

Nice to have the whole thing on SBD, which really works well for the more quiet segments (Swept Away->Steep, parts of Stash), but nothing you need to seek out. Gave this 3 stars.

Review by DaReba

DaReba Always good to hear a Curtain opener. This Tweezer is very special. In the Bible & is the divine number. at the 7 minute mark in thiss funk/rock/blues masterpiece show why there were absolutely the best live rock act act at the time.
This tape made feel heroic for somereason when I got it because i got it with a group of 3 europe shows. I was beyond pumped. These shows prepped them for a ridiculous year of growth.
I called this year flying marshmellow funk. This chalkdust is great example. Trey takes his young wailing tone from summer 95 to a clearer more defined conclusion in 97.this chalkdust is an early peak into that. Sick . leaves you speechless . you ever wanted a song to go on forever
