ND61400 Of the 12 sets of music Phish played on 10/31 in 1994, 1995, 1996, and 1998, the RIL Set 2 from this show is the single best set of music. Each of the other sets and shows contain moments of brilliance, of course, and the 10/31/98 Set 3 looks awfully tasty on paper, but it's this night's musical costume that holds up best some 23 years later. For me, Perazzo works absolutely perfectly here, and the energy he brings and which is palpable among the crowd and the band (listen to Trey "Woo!" a few times during the set) takes it over the top. Just *listen* to the way they explode into C&P (which they also do in West Palm Beach two nights later before taking that jam into the stratosphere). It's just a magnificent set of music.
