JezmundTheFamilyBeserker96 Set 1 Highlights: Piper, Limb by Limb (Standout Version)

Set 2 Highlights: Twist -> Boogie On Reggae Woman -> Ghost -> Free* (Standout Segment, *Standout Version), Divided Sky, Good Times Bad Times

A very solid second night of this New Years Run. The band comes roaring out of the gates with Piper and you can tell from the start that Trey is doing whatever the opposite of fcking around is. The Limb by Limb in the first set was an extremely powerful version displaying how they would wind that song up and bring it back down, peaking repeatedly. They did that a lot in both Limb by Limb and Taste in 2003 and would recommend listening to all of them. Otherwise, the first set was pretty average great Phish. Now, the second set is just the absolute business. The whole chain of segues from Twist through Free is way more fun than should be legal. Also, the Free that ends that segment is among the most unique versions I've heard. Mike and Trey have done a duet jam in Free before but I have never heard one as exploratory as this version. After a quick breather, Trey transitions very oddly into Divided Sky by bending the opening chord an octave down and releasing his Whammy to bring it back into tune. The unique start of this Divided Sky is followed up with some very diverse and attentive playing by the band in the jam, luxuriating in a softer texture before amping it up for a big finale. Good Times Bad Times closes the set in the expected explosive manner with a little bit of extra gas poured on by Trey.
