waxbanks The very talented Gullotti is a somewhat uncomfortable fit in places - hey, even Bill Kreutzmann didn't quite fit with Fishman in 2009 - but he helps drive Hood and Free in interesting places, singlehandedly tightening Free's swing and encouraging Trey in his weird, awkward, joyous 'Blister' excursion. Exciting show.

YEM was amazing!!! The Purple & Yellow lites split the audience from the chest up & down right around sunset. I'd brought some Phish virgins w/ me to the show....they couldn't stand still thru-out....despite the $8/bottle of water in 90+ degree heat...the David Bowie/Harry/Blister jam was impressive to all...especially my friend Angie who'd loved the Femmes from long ago...we ended up in a rest stop off I35 where everyone was raided by fire ants and had to split before dawn on the way to AZ...my friends and I went back to SA for a couple weeks and started drivin' to Chicago for Tinley Park....followed em all the way to The Went...needless to say the 1st timers I brought along were SOLD ON PHISH!!!! I wish Southpark Meadows was still around...they've turned it into ungodly stripmalls since....what a shame...

This show was my 3rd of the U.S summer tour.
What a great venue South Park Meadows is, all general admission on a grass field with a concrete dance floor up near the stage.

The highlight of this show and one of the highlights of my Phish days was definately the
Timber Ho!>David Bowie.
The jam in Timber was amazing as usual but towords the end took on a whole new life, it kind of melted into a space type jam that somehow found its way to the beginning of the best Bowie I've ever heard, and I swear right before the guitar intro to Bowie Trey says "Goodbye Jim".

I still to this day wonder why he said that.
Anyway if you wanna hear one of the best phish jams get this show and pop in the second set!!

ucpete Because all the other reviews have somehow skipped over this, I am compelled to tell you to listen to YEM -> Izabella. It's unbelievable! Gullotti is great here, and just as YEM's thick '97 funk picks up a bit, before we'd normally get B-and-D, Trey moves the band right into the Hendrix classic. The first half of the second set ain't no joke either. The 17 minute Timber to open the frame gets really dark, as does the subsequent Bowie which has some seriously video game-like sounds in the intro. If you grew up on NES in the early '80s, this Bowie intro is for you. Hood -> Blister -> Hood -> Free is awesome, with a cool segue into Free, though it does come right when you're feeling *really* good about Hood so it's a bit of a let-down. Free however brings some serious funk. This is a rock solid show, and is part of the natural progression from the end of '96 through Fall '97.
