Halley's Comet

, comment by tiggerphish
tiggerphish This was my very first HC, along with my first trip to the Mothership. An outstanding weekend, it is the best 3 day stretch of my life, period. The jam in this is amazing and seamless, with Trey working his magic on everything he did, from his fretwork to his mastery of the loop and it's integral part of this Fall run. The boys were like a well-oiled machine running on some power source from beyond our realm of existence this entire weekend, as it was nothing short of molten fire, and the jams flowed like lava from Mt. Phisherest, everyone's favorite volcano.

n00b100 It's funny that this jam never gets much recognition as one of the best jams ever, even though it's the cornerstone of the 2nd set of one of the best shows ever (I say it's *the* best, but that's me). But it's a really exceptional piece of business, downshifting right out of the gate into a quicksilver groove, building up into a Trey showcase (with a lot of help from Fish, who is on fire here), and then puddling into dreamy ambiance (much like the 10/20/13 Tweezer, which also finds its ending in a gauzy haze) in fine fashion. Pick nits all you want with 11/22/97 II, but I really don't think you can deny the power of this jam.
