Review by Lucyspaw

Lucyspaw Phish always seemed to enjoy playing in KC and this show was no exception. Aside from the early memorial hall shows this one stands out as being one of the most powerful shows from my home town. It was a perfect evening in KC and Sandstone Amphitheatre is a nice outdoor venue that isn't near as large as some other regular phish stops. The band opened with a hilarious Emotional Rescue. Everyone was in high spirits and getting into the groove. Funky Bitch was the perfect closer. The great song choices didn't cease there. Wedge opened the second set and got us all bobbin on the surface. Then they broke out into Poor Heart and Trey was shredding his frets so hard that he took control and ripped all the way through the part where Page would have had his solo. I was kinda set back cuz I love any moment in time when Page touches the keys, especially on Poor Heart. No worries, The Mango Song highlighted Page and made up for any lost stage time. THEN BROTHER! The only time i've ever heard this song. I don't have a recording and don't believe i've heard it at any other show and that makes me sad! I would love to hear this again, I remember it being intense and mind blowing. I need more. All in all this show was a rocker!!

Live phish needs to release this show. 4.5 stars!
