white_lightning This is a really good show. The first set is well played and fun. They pretty much destroy Gin, a stellar version. I need to relisten, but Old Home Place seemed to be played in an unusual way...Maybe I was just imagining at the time. Other 1st set highlights were MFMF and, obviously, YEM.

As to set II, if you tend to like patient, bordering on ambient but still complex phish jamming (happens to be my favorite), you're not going to do much better than Tweezer thru Party Time.

Tweezer is immediately worthwhile and a great version, IMO. Both Ghost and Light take a little more time to develop but ultimately payoff. The transition into Party Time (jam) was both unexpected and perfect, and they all gave it some extra mustard to be sure. I'm not overlooking or even arguing with the Wading, Rocky Top closer, just saying the balance of the set is really, really good phish.
