Review by Hose_jam

Hose_jam A great rare 25 min. Bathtub Gin first set closer. I love the second ambient half of the jam but it remains a pretty solid jam. Recording time's are per LivePhish release

5:05 Liftoff, Page on Grand, Fishman on the ride, Mike and Trey exchanging runs and licks.
6:30 Trey picks it up a bit playing a quick lick and really locks into Fishman here.
7:18 Page strays over to a synth adding a nice layer to the growing jam. He alternates with the Grand Piano giving a nice contrast.
8:15 Gordo locks into a nice rhythm and Trey shows some patience, hanging on a lick while Page builds the sound on the piano.
9:15 Great interplay from Page and Trey!
9:40 Seems like Trey has two options here, lay a screaming high bending note and go into typical Gin peak OR lay a vamp on a funky chords. He opts for the latter.
10:20 Page starts to funk it up on the clavinet. Trey is in rhythm guitarist mode with Page and Gordo really leading the way.
11:40 Fishman goes over the woodblock. Trey comes in with a melody and Gordo eventually takes over the line. Absolutely seamless building of a jam between those two here.
13:00 Trey puts on an effect and plays a three note melody that blends in nicely with the funk. Page is tearing it up on the clavinet, matching Fish's woodblock.
13:53 A small part of the jam, but when Trey switches over to a chord vamp here and Fishman hits an opening hi-hat, well, that is subtle stuff right there but it absoutely drives.
14:40 Trey builds a nice rhythm off a scratching pattern.
15:00 Fishman explodes with Trey and the jam takes it up a notch.
15:21 Fishman goes back to the block with Page on the Organ and Trey finally releases a bending note.
17:10 Trey lets out a nice note here but it seems like Fishman is the one who is really pushing the jam. The jam never really peaks too hard but it's a nice upbeat funk jam.
18:00 Trey lets out a howl from his guitar, Fishman slows up the beat and moves over the ride, Page plays some great lines with his wurlitzer(not sure?) and organ alternating lines. Very Pink Floyd esque.

18:40 Fishman slows it down and things get a little weird. Page and Trey are playing outside and with each other, making for a strange effect.
19:30 Full on ambient space jam. Trey noodles over some tom hits from Fishman...Page lays down some super spacey effects.
20:40 Page comes in with organ, Fishman steadies a beat on the toms and Trey shows some nice patience here.
21:30 Mike hits a low note that seems to signal a shift into major but Trey stumble around for a bit here.
22:05 Page has built a nice background sound and the jam has structure but is extremely ambient.

24:20 Trey comes back in with the Bathtub Gin melody. Nice patience here with Fishman counting back in on the hi-hat and Trey not pushing the tempo. I like how they let it patiently find it's way back to the main Gin theme.
