Review by Mikesgroover

Mikesgroover Though this was the first Phish show after Jerry Garcia's death (at a venue that the Dead played regularly) Jerry's passing drew no mention tonight (that would be saved for the Shoreline show)

The words "Shirley Temple" are sung in the background vocals of a short Wolfman's, making its first appearance since the GameHoist show.

Free gets the extended '95 style exploration in a first-set version and It's Ice is well played. Fishman's I Didn't Know trombone solo is more polished than usual (and possibly the last time Fishman pulled out the trombone for this tune, if this site's notes are correct).

The Fog That Surrounds is introduced by Trey by saying, "Some of you think you know this song, but you don't." It is of course, the reworked Taste, a brief change of form that the band made to this now classic Phish tune.

The debut of CTB is uneventful, but Bag takes us on a slightly longer journey that segues smoothly into the Bowie intro, with a slow jam connecting the two songs. A fast and manic Bowie never moves deep into Type II territory.

Billy Breathes intro is slightly different and the song isn't really finished and the Keyboard Army that follows is short but sweet.

The rest of the show isn't especially noteworthy, with Hello My Baby dedicated to Pete Schall and a surprisingly strong Possum encore. A show that might only interest completists and those seeking out debuts, though the playing isn't bad.
