Review by TwiceBitten

TwiceBitten I thought I'd chime in seeing as a lot of the reviews are negative and this show has a low rating due to the aborted first set. There are still some strong jams here that are definitely worth your time. Halley's is the epitome of mellow 98 funk. Trey keeps it pretty low key but I like what I'm hearing. Around 12 minutes in he drops the First Tube lick over a year before Phish ever played it. The jam eventually ends up in some Star Trek territory. Mike's and Weekapaug are standard for the era, but that means pretty good. They play Simple in the middle of the Groove and it drifts into ambience but brings some heat starting at 15 minutes. This segment is totally unique and the highlight of the show. Fishman brings back the First Tube beat for awhile and all is glorious. You should probably also listen to the Mike's from the first set for some context.

Also, the night before this an exceptional show (better than this one for sure). Tweezer, Drowned, Hood > Izabella. If you're reading this and haven't those, then good God, go for it right away!
