Review by waxbanks

waxbanks This widely-circulated show is an ideal introduction to The Ancient Ways. The songlist is awfully familiar but this is a band in its infancy; the band's singular collective improvisation didn't reach full flower for the better part of a decade after this date. That said, the dextrous worked-out prog-rock of Phish's 80's material has its own appeal. I'm especially fond of Phish's take on Whipping Post, and the early overcompensatory fun of Sneakin' Sally (which was really a different song post-1997).
