Wow...I've had 11/16/94 Set II in my car (Mike's>Simple>YEAH!) all week,
it's pretty much the only Phish I've listened to recently. That jam
is...well the only way I've come up to describe it it just simply Phish.
This is what these guys do...beginning with your typical (yet somehow that
seems such an unfair word for this playing style) Fall '94 rythmic jamming
(akin to Tweezer on ALO -- infact the Chalkdust from this show is on ALO)
and includes brilliant navigation through an intense metal section, then a
change to major, and jamming indicative of the more balladesque songs Phish
would write in the years to come. And this is just side A! Then there's
bluegrass with Rev. Jeff, the aforementioned Chalkdust, a short Fee (w/
megaphone, and where the audience's singing eclipses Treys on the final
chorus) leading into a blistering Antelope, and the encore: acapella
unmiced singing of Amazing Grace (on the very stage many of us have
performed) followed by a Suzy!
