PHATTSKIS A sleeper show outweighed by monster fall 98 shows (Salt Lake and Cincy as examples) before and (Hampton and Wooster) after. I attended a couple of years of college in the 80s at MTSU and it was my first visit to Murfreesboro in several years. I was excited to go back there after my long cross country drive from Park City to do the Cincy>Mboro>SC>NC>Hampton run and actually ended up skipping SC and NC b/c of some truck trouble but made Hampton (WHEW!)

My Friend opener was great--loved it having that open that show at a place I used to go to school with--ran into many old phriends there and the last concert I had seen there was REM back in the 80s--felt like an old friend. Don't remember much of the first set after Driver b/c my buddy that rode with me had a really strange ride on his sillycybins. Took me a few songs to talk him down--that really made me miss the good old ROCK MED on the west coast but he chilled out and I got to rocking again during Roggae. La Grange was a grand first set closer.

Second set started strong with Jim>Stash, Mikes but I was growing weary of Simple out of Mikes and Velvet sea was a downer to me (ha! but not a trip ender!) Loving Cup>Weekapaug brought the missing energy back and Rocky Top in my home state of course was completely fun.

Everyshow can't be EPIC but almost any show is GOOD PHUN. This one was just plain GOOD PHUN.

A chill show. Nothing must hear. Set I has an ok Ghost and a long SOAMule. La Grange closer is a nice treat for the people at the show.

Set II Stash jamming is interesting. I didn't see an annotation for a Landlady tease I heard in the Stash. Standard Mike's. Weekapaug is solid. A bit funky at times.

ucpete Another underrated albeit concise show from Fall '98. Ghost is solid in the first set, and SOAMule is amazing and is deservedly on the Jamming Chart. LxL is pretty great too, though concise -- check out the Taste tease 8 minutes in -- and La Grange has only been played twice since this night.

The 2O Jim doesn't go deep, but the ensuing Stash is great and should be heard. There are definitely some shades of August '93 in this version, but it's clearly '98 Phish. The rest of the set is straightforward, and the whole show is on the short side (at 2h15m it's the shortest show of the tour), but the jam out of Velvet Sea is beautiful and atypical and must be heard! It's like a sneak preview of the last bit of patient, beautiful jamming from the Bethel Waves soundcheck (5/26/11). The Rocky Top encore is fitting, and another reminder of how thoughtful this band is. Is this a 4 star show? No. But it's better than a 3 star show, and unfortunately there are no half stars to give.
