Review by moephan

moephan A phantastic hometown show. It's awesome to see phish 20min from home. Especially when they're playing this well.

A monster first set speaks for itself. Seek out this maze if you like them dark and bizarre like I do. A majestic hood to close the set is always great.

First tube rocked as usual, but the tweezer->makisupa is where it's at. Cactus made this one especially funky. Add a ripping chalk dust to close and you have a winner.

At least that's what I thought until the next night at the pyramid. WHEW!!!

Review by NorthStarZ

NorthStarZ I don't usually write reviews but after seeing this great show w/o any I just had to try & do it justice. I'll start with the venue itself. Its on top of Oak Mountain, a big mound just south of Birminham, AL. At the time of this show there was no pavilion/shead....just a stage. Behind the band the lights of Birmingham created a beautiful backdrop. The "Wolfman's" opener was a nice, quirky way to start things off. But!....it gave no hint on what was to follow. Next was "Sneakin' Sally" which raged! Second song of the 1st set?! I was mind-boggled! Well, "Tube", "Ginseng Sullivan", "Maze", "Velvet Sea" & "Hood" rounded out the rest of the set. "Roggae" was in there too but that was my bathroom/beer break song during the late 90's.
A really good "Farmhouse" started off the 2nd set. Thats right I said it! "1st Tube", "Tweezer" & "Chalk Dust" were all really tight. The "Makisupa" was a lot of fun. The "YEM" was incredible with a "Sweet Home Alabama" quoted vocal jam that seemed to please the locals & folk on tour equally! "Halley's > Tweeprise" as an encore was an inspired choice.
Musically the boys were on fire! From the start you could tell they were having a real fun time up there that night! Trey even said something to that effect at the end of the 1st set. Just an all around great show with a fun setlist in a special, outta the way venue. Pick up a copy of this show, you wont be disappointed!

shannon426 I was not there, so I can't speak for the live experience. Musically however, Farmhouse is a total gem from this show. Wow! So many great songs in this show, I highly recommend listening.

Review by Bob_Loblaw

Bob_Loblaw What an awesome show!

Set one starts off as an all out funk fest with an Extra Funky Wolfman, Sally, & Tube. I can't think of too many shows that have a 3 song pairing of funk quite like this. Mike is laying it down the whole time. Roggae is noticeably powerful as Trey adds a lot of character to it. Maze is great and leads to gigantic peak as it should. Wading is in a bizarre slot but Trey seems to want it so it works. Hood is a very solid cap to the set with some very inspired guitar work by Trey.

Set 2 starts with the odd pair of Farmhouse and Heavy Things, very normal for first set but not the second. But that is ok because Farmhouse is fantastic, one of the best versions I've heard. And heavy Things? Well it's the same one you'll get for the next year. Tweezer is the typical slow funk you come to expect from this year and it morphs into a looping decay feedback frenzy. The segue into Makisupa is pretty cool, it's one of those "How did they get there?" type of segues. YEM is played very well. Solid after jam with what appears to be a longer than usual vocal jam. Everything is solid.

Average Encore.

Front to back this show is very strong and carries very little flaws. It has energy, fun, and inspired playing. I like.
