andrewrose Wasn't at this show but the Bathtub Gin to open Set II is another beautiful example of underrated Fall 98 jamming. If there was a bigger most-valuable-jam-song between Summer 97 and Dec 99, I don't know of it... and you could argue things peaked for Bathtub in Nov 98 in terms of how frequently great the jams were. This and the 11/29 version are both stellar.

Set I--Solid Divided Sky

Set II-Bathtub Gin was excellent. Moma Dance was solid. Slave was better than usual. Decent YEM.

For me, the Bathtub Gin was the highlight of the 3 night run. The jam goes a lot of places. Several solid Gins in 98 indeed.

bouncin7 I believe this GIN deserves much praise and many adjectives. The point at beginning of 18 min or so, Trey plays those really high notes with the loop running and just owns it. Trippy as trippy my plan......then he so gently segues back into a bouncy reprise of the GIN theme as if to say, "Oh I'm back to my senses." This GIN is a must hear for any Phishy-head. 5 stars!

okeepaphan When I listed to this Gin jam, around the 11-15 minute mark, I keep waiting for someone to go "Heeeeeey Macarena". Trey's licks sound like the lyric portion. I'm doing the dance now in my desk.

Corey The First set was all the money, in my opinion. Llama rocked my socks off and the venue was Waaaaay over-crowded. Horn left everyone standing in awe at the sound and its HUGE-ness. I get a kick was totally for spite. % Sky made Trey cry. (and brought the rest of us close to tears as well.) Free was the money maker as well as Bold as love to thunder threw the end of the set.

Gin. Dance. Moma. Dance. You Enjoy Myself. Dance.

What song is it you wanna hear a capella?
