fhqwhgads Individual dexterities and collective agility is what is to be had on display in this show. In a word, virtuosity. It's almost disconcerting how sharp Phish was at this point in Phishtory. The Recommended Jams are recommended for good reason, but really, everything in this show is played with amazing skill (and grace!) It just goes to show what happens when a band believes in themselves and practices and tours with great frequency. I think my favorite part of the show is either one of the handful of Type-II Rebas to be found throughout the ages, or the Mike's Groove. The Weekapaug is certainly extended, and certainly Type II... the Mike's second jam achieves Type-II status almost immediately. But I'm also very partial to Take the 'A' Train, of which I've not heard many Phish covers. This is a really great show, but as for the brand-spanking-new St. Louis '93 box set, I like 4/14/93 better.
