NightSpeaks S1
Mike's - Good standard version. Cool abrupt > to Simple.
Simple - Good standard version. Spacey outro jam with a good -> to Maze.
Maze - Strong version!
Strange Design, Ginseng, Vultures, Water in the Sky - Well played, standard. Not much else to say.
Weekapaug - Great version! Even the intro is fire with Trey's chords and Fish's fills. Later on gets FUNKY and the whole band is really locked in.
Stash - Cool spacy intro, sounds like something that would come before a 2001 or DWD. Standard tension filled Stash until around 14-15 minutes when a rocking groove develops. Switches to a major key around 20 minutes and Trey finds a BEAUTIFUL lick. 10 minutes of great melodic jamming includes a bass solo then goes spacey with a -> to Llama.
Llama - Very strong funk-filled version. Great Trey and Page solos. -> to Wormtown Jam.
Wormtown Jam - Creepy jam, lyrics sung to the tune of "Swingtown." Trey tells a story about getting sucked into the canals of Amsterdam and riding on the back of the worm. -> to Velvet Sea.
Velvet Sea - Well played, standard version.
Free - Cool funky stop-and-start jam! Liquid Mike.
Bowie - Standard version. Cool Page/Fish and Trey/Mike teaming before the closing section.

Awesome set 1. Great flow with some small jams. The Weekapaug is a top version for me. Amazing set 2 with MONSTER Stash (my favorite Phish jam ever), shredding Llama, funny Wormtown banter and Velvet Sea to close. Double encore with great Free and Bowie jams! I consider this the best Phish show ever played.
