Review by charliefogg

charliefogg This is one of the top 5 shows I've attended and I listen to it frequently. When I think of this show, the first song that comes to mind and the one I listen to most frequently is Birds of a Feather. The other reviews cover the rest of the show really well but the BOAF is just incredible. Its beginning is standard but at around the 4:00 mark, it begins to veer away from the path it would normally take. At 5:00, Page and Trey do brief call and response that leads into an absolutely blissful solo by Trey. It recalls, at least for me, the Grateful Dead's jam out of Wharf Rat into Dark Star from 2-18-71 (also one of my favorites.) The next two minutes are the reason why I listen to Phish. Just beautiful. Check it out!
