Review by headyburritos

headyburritos Sandwiched between two historic, monster three-night runs, this show is easily overlooked, but it still brings the goods in so many ways.

Although set two is really why this show gets remembered, the opening Tweezer is about as good as it gets in Fall 97. They kick you right in the nuts with some classic Phish funk for nearly 20 minutes. The rest of the first set is pretty average-great, with the closing Taste worth revisiting

This second set is some pure gold, though. A spacey, droning, psychedelic Zero gets things going and gets things weird. It is a solid 20+ minutes of weird gooey goodness. Definitely not the funky sound that most of this tour is known for, but that would come up next in the equally epic 2001->Cities->Ya Mar segment. Some delicious funk and smooth transitions. The set cools down a bit after Punch, but I've always loved Tweezer Reprise coming at the end of the second set instead of the encore.

Excellent, excellent show.
