Abe_Froman The couple of minutes of music as Prince Caspian fades and St. Stephen starts is one of my favorite music moments. Unbelievable.

PHATTSKIS Could be my favorite concert of all time and I have seen a few. Everything that night was stellar. Everything was well played, the jams were awesome, and the addition of Donna Jean really made the night extra-special. The second set blend of PHiSH and old Grateful Dead music was incredible. So pleased to have been there! Track down a copy of this show, if not all three of these Warfield Phil and Phriends shows.
Score: 1
