DemandOpener The band was absolutely on fire for this show! If you like Phish playing basically everything perfectly but safely, this show is for you. It's a very Trey-esque show with lots of shredding.

That said, the Slave soars, and there's a bunch of worthy listens in here, including several covers: Wild Child, Bold as Love, and Whipping Post among them. 4 stars.
Score: 1
