GregYagoda They say that you always remember your first, and though it was along time ago and I was only 15 at the time, I certainly will. This is a really great first show with great music and silly antics. Phish was somewhat new to my ears but the night featured many familiar classics including Bouncing, Free, YEM, Disease, etc. Set 1 YEM closer is a real treat! Everything was played extremely well like you'd expect from Fall 96, though little stands out as exceptional.The It's Ice, SOAM and Disease have some really interesting parts, and the Scent of a Mule vocal jam is a lot of fun. The highlight of the show is, of course, the Mike's Groove with the (unknowingly at the time) rare "Swept > Steep" middle section and a top notch, bonkers Weekapaug. Watchtower encore is kinda weird and unPhish but hearing Trey shred is pretty awesome. I never would have predicted that 25 years later I would have seen this band 100 times.
