fhqwhgads This show features Karl Perazzo on percussion for the duration. He gets lost in the mix sometimes, but that's not to cast reflection upon his achievements... just to say that Phish's soundstage is busier than Karl might've been used to before. Ya Mar, the show opener, is probably the exemplary definition of Karl's feature, here. Taste is astounding. I'd honestly never understood before what was going on with Fishman during that number. It's remarkable. Free has a kind of noisy outro. The big lauded sequence from this show is the Crosseyed and Painless -> Run Like an Antelope. While it's impressive that Phish could jam Crosseyed out to this degree only 2 nights after its debut at Hallowe'en at the Omni in Atlanta, the jam is kind of staid in the sense that it doesn't really provide that much color. I remember early in my phandom that this sequence was recommended as an all-timer, but I don't think with the benefit of hindsight that it's really that essential. The final most notable thing about this show is Butch Trucks from the Allman Brothers Band sitting in on drums for the Funky Bitch encore. Fishman is relegated to Trey's percussion rack, but it's still a thrilling version.
