Review by HalfdeafHippie

HalfdeafHippie After completely obliterating the Baker's Dozen in July and August, expectations were high when the Phish from Vermont hit Colorado. Some folks will tell you that maybe a couple of these sets weren't up to the same level as the preceding 2017 shows, but hey, folks will say a lot of things.

Just some quick hits. First, they're in Colorado, the land of legal reefer and "Blaze On" kicks off the festivities. They're such clever boys, the Phish. And not just any version of Blaze On, this is 15 solid minutes of jam-packed blazing excitement for your head and your ass. Blowing your mind and making you dance. That's what they do.

The tone of Trey's guitar in Free is just tasty goodness to my robotic ear. One of those things I could hear any day...

Tube. Damn. They jammed it again!! Different from the BD version, but that doesn't make it better or worse. It was great, and I'm hoping that two in a row marks the start of a trend.

Roggae. I love this song. Every version is the best version ever when I'm hearing it.. This one is no different.

More is an anthem, and a pretty damned good one at that. They've not done anything really different with it since its debut and this version was interchangeable with any others.

The second set is just about 3/5ths of everything you could ever want from a second set. The first 3 tunes were incendiary. The other two were solid, but not exceptional. The encores were average versions of commonly played tunes. What else can I say?

Well worth checking out for the Blaze On, Tube, and NMINML > Carini >Ghost
