Review by Palmer

Palmer Got a ticket in the lot, thanks to those who could help a ticket less bastard like myself out. SET ONE- Farmhouse, a decent follow up from last night's Albany gem. Jibboo >Heavy Things, eh nothing special. First Tube followed, is it just me or is this the best version of First Tube ever, this song really had some energy going for us. I love the screaming of Fishman during the climax of the jam towards the 7.50 min mark. Dirt > Vultures, eh. Not to impressed with this set one. Was hoping for some older tunes rather than Farmhouse but well will see what closes this set, Stash. This version of Stash is top 5 IMO. The Stash ends up going into this ambient jam which is a mix of ambient space and Trey's unique playing style with the rest of the band made this set one bust into something of a must hear, just for the fact that Stash and First Tube were two of the best.
SET TWO- Ambient Jam Intro- very spooky very dark, seemed to be blossoming into something unique, Ghost maybe? YEM. This YEM had no vocal jam, the ambient intro was just the First of many. YEM contained some pepper and some Trey Hot Sauce, Between jamming and playing the piss out of this they come out with Caspian which was a great, near flawless version. Trainsong followed, another one of my favorites off Billy Breathes, Gin was rather short but sweet, Character o closed out the show, eh. The YEM was the highlight of set two, in fact it was Set 2.
Encore- Contact, wow! a rare treat, I'll take it. Gordo on vocals is always something i look forward to, Misty Mountain to close the show. Nice job.
First Tube, Stash and YEM were beyond anything ive heard Phish play in shows prior in 99, thanks 'yall.
