headyburritos Definitely my favorite show of this tour (at least for now) and possibly my favorite Phish show of all time. The release of the Hampton-Winston/Salem box set certainly helped bring this one into clear focus. But even without that official release, it's still pretty obvious that this show smokes from top to bottom and is certainly an early Fall 97 highlight.

The second set rightly gets most of the attention in this show, but I am blown away again and again by the opening Mike's Groove in the first set. And then really, the entire first set just does it so well. Mid first set Hood?!? You kiddin' me?! I actually really love the Train Song/Billy Breathes segment of this show as this is the only real "breather" part of the show. Frankenstein>Izabella.. classic 97.

Halley's is a monster, no doubt. "Hey Mike, stay on F!" Best band leader decision that Trey has ever made. This whole second set should be required listening for every Phish fan. And preferably in one sitting, uninterrupted. What else can you say about this show? 5/5
