Review by Penn42

Penn42 This is a really solid show with a great setlist and a nice flow. The jam in Ice is nice, the YEM vocal jam -> HYHU is an awesome little anomaly, and Maze is it's usual raging self, but the highlight of the show is undoubtedly the Mike's Groove. The Mike's Song in particular is just stellar. The first half of the jam is pretty straight-forward, but the second half contains a melt of epic proportions. I am not normally one to use the word "epic", but if there was ever a jam it applies to, it would be the melt in the second half of this Mike's Song. I am also not one to draw musical stylistic comparisons between the Grateful Dead and Phish, but the melt in this Mike's Song is strikingly similar to the melt in Playing In The Band from 7.29.88 Laguna Seca Raceway. That Playin' is one of my favorite late 80's Dead jams and I was giddy as a schoolboy when Phish got to a similar place in this jam. Have any members of Phish heard this under the radar jam Dead jam? Probably not, I just enjoy marveling at the coincidence.

if you haven't heard either these jams, I woud highly recommend seeking them out, they're both mind blowing.
