Gumbo72203 ACDC Bag!!!!

This is 16 minutes of the best kind of uplifting perma-groove the band is capable of delivering. Immediately from the outset of the guitar solo, Trey lays into plalying chords, and we're instantly in Type II territory.

Ever the game-changer, Mike instantly picks up on whats going on and delivers, in my opinion, the greatest slap bass lines the man has EVER performed onstage, with Phish. They are at once funky, mean, thrilling, forceful, badass, and joyful. It's amazing. I don't know if I have a "favorite thing" that Trey, Page, or Fish has ever done, but my all-time most favorite thing Mike has ever done is hands-down this ACDC Bag.

The jam also moves through a number of different things, coalescing back onto itself and re-appearing with as much technicolor glory as anything from 1997 or Dec 1999. Towards the 2nd half of the jam, Fishman develops a drumbeat somewhat akin to the Runaway Jim beat. It's a quasi-untz, where he's playing a fast 1-2, 1-2, 1-2 pattern alternating between his kick drum and the snare. It's so driving and locomotive... incendiary.

You need to hear this ACDC Bag. I like it better than 12/30/97 and 11/7/98 (which is also ~20 minutes long).
