Review by samsaraa

samsaraa I just wanted to get a couple things clear, the 2nd set reads like this:

Blaze On >
Twist >
The Wheel Jam >
Light >
I Know You Rider Jam>
Joy
Harry Hood >
Cavern

E: Character Zero

The reviews that mention that these jams were "I Know You Rider esque" or "similar" to The Wheel are just wrong. These are straight up, out and out jams of these songs and there is no other way to describe them. Im not sure that the band could honor The Grateful Dead in a more respectful manner. In classic Phish form they have done the songs the ultimate justice without stepping on the toes of The Grateful Dead themselves or their faithful fans.

Kudos to the boys for once again keeping us on our toes and making us always pay attention. I, like many others, thought it was a foregone conclusion that they would bust out a few Dead tunes in light of the fact that Trey just played Santa Clara with the Fare The Well band a month earlier and that they were playing at, literally, the house that The Dead built. Well done gentlemen, we'll done. You have once again blown my expectations out of the water and reaffirmed that you just never know whats gonna happen at a Phish show.

Respectfully,
Samsaraa
