fhqwhgads This second set is certainly stacked! But first things first (I, Poppa, freaks all the honeys.) Down with Disease is in the first set, unusually for 3.0; I think I like it better there. Sure, it's a reliable Set-II opening jam vehicle, but the song is about 23 years old (as if that has anything to do with the price of tea in China when it comes to Phish... but yeah, it does.) Anyway, the Sand reminds me of Big Cypress: not necessarily just the Sand -> Quadrophonic Toppling from 12/31/99, but just the overall jamming style most prevalent at that festival of all festivals. Legit segue into Ghost, which I believe is a noteworthy jam, legit segue into Piper, and a beatific landing pad in Twenty Years Later. When I relisten to this show, that's the segment I go for, and sometimes I don't finish the show. There's high-quality video available of the Sand on Phish's YouTube channel.
