Review by JMart

JMart I'm not trying to be a hater, and I'm all for being in the moment of a show, especially when a completely unanticipated improvisational *moment* happens - that shit is thrilling, and this is a really good jam, but is this really seriously in contention for one of the best Phish moments of all time?
The most wildly popular versions of songs, shows, tours, etc kind of self-perpetuate: they are good, they get the most press, those in "the know" bump them as best-ever, the n00bs listen to them, and the cycle is repeated (the Tahoe Tweezer is a perfect example: yeah, it's good, but it's sure as shit not the greatest Phish jam ever). I have to believe this the case here. Solid show elevated to near-mythical status.

This project serves to compile, preserve, and protect encyclopedic information about Phish and their music.
