spreaditround SET 1: Dogs Stole Things: Standard.

Limb By Limb: Standard.

Ginseng Sullivan: Standard.

Bathtub Gin: LOL Trey comes back in too early with lyrics while Page is banging away on the piano. I dig the weird time signature part that transitions into that muddy heavy metal jam. From here this bad boy goes into deep space, loops and Page leaning heavy on the synth. Trey getting very funky. Gets back to Gin proper and then another space jam. Strong enough version. Very good, not great or all time. >

Llama: Very funky after the final refrain, Page leaning hard on the synth. Gets quite dark, sounds like they could go for the Wormtown jam in here. Gets very, very spacy and then those familiar loops emerge that can only mean one thing… ->

Wading in the Velvet Sea:

Jam: Very funky and bluesy. Sounds like it came straight out of a soundcheck, nice and loose. Lizards climax played at half speed is sick!

Olivia's Pool

SET 2: Also Sprach Zarathustra: Very funny banter in the intro. Big time first peak. Really fun version. >

Julius: This Julius features a sort of blues breakdown that they take way down low and almost to a silent jam, then explode from there. They take it to where you think the normal ending would be, kind of blow through that into some weirdness and then an exceptional segue into… ->

Magilla: Mike’s solo is beyond sick and really tells demonstrates how he will sound with the band moving forward throughout 1997. Loud and out front. Lots of false endings. Fun version!

Ya Mar: Great fun. Trey dictating which duets should be taken via which instruments is highly entertaining. ->

Ghost: Standard. ->

Take Me to the River: Funk > Rage. Super fun jam to round out this set. Don’t be fooled by the time stamp on this one – it’s roughly 10 and a half minutes.

ENCORE: Funky Bitch – Rollicking good time, love the Gin tease from the trumpet player, very well done!

Replay Value: Bathtub Gin, Llama, Jam, Also Sprach Zarathustra, Julius, Magilla, Ya Mar, Take Me to the River

Summary: Once again, I think the rating on Phish.net does a great job of how good this show is, it truly is a classic show. Very loose and very fun. Not something you could ever expect to see in the US. 4.427/5 (110 ratings)
