Harryshappyplace This is a really solid show, from the opening notes of Wilson through the closing of Suzy, the band is nearly perfect. Even though the first last hardly lasts an hour, it is full of energy and spirit. It seems almost every version of those early Simples' were performed differently and they are all great. The Reba is a great straightforward version with a nice long peak that can get any Reba fans rocks off. I love early Diseases' and this one does not disappoint; great type 1 work here. Things end with a bang with Golgi and we'll be back in 15 minutes. Ha

Second sets opens with a classic 2001 that features some extra mustard in some of the improved sections and sounds very fresh. The Jim extends itself (just a bit) outside its realm and Halley's is a welcomed precursor to SOAMule. The YEM is a fantastic version complete with Catapult and an excellent jam with a really cool bass/drum solo and vocal jam. This YEM has a lot to offer and is easily the highlight of the set. The set continues with a predictable Foreplay/Longtime and ends perfectly with a Bouncin' and Suzy.

With all the DMB hate that flies around here, I really liked the encore with the drums jam and the debut of The Maker, it made for a great combo to end the night on.

Overall: Top-shelf Phish and a classic example of their tight, energy-fueled '94 style of playing. 4/5
