Review by Shadowfox0

Shadowfox0 Not a great 4 night run but then again NONE of the Mexico runs have been great Not a single 4.5 show in 7 years pretty crazy There have been good shows like 4.0 range which is slightly above average but the setlists on paper have been great. They played Lizards Shafty Gin and Sea and Sand which has only been played 4 x and that is one of my all time favorite covers I adore the Velvet Underground and Loadeds best songs are I Found a Reason and the fat micky mouse song and Sea and Sand from The Whos Quadrophenia this is definitely the piano song like Blackbird on the White Album for the Beatles It is the epic song that ties that whole double album together w some of the best lyrics in a The Who song ever!!! I wish they played that song more often at least on beaches like in Atlantic City and it was perfectly placed here. I want more Albuquerque the Have Mercy was nice I love any and all Reggae songs like Marleys Mellow Mood or Three Little Birds Trenchtown Rock and the list goes on and I love bluegrass so Old Home Place Ginseng Sullivan being my 2 favorites but Nellie Cane and Evening Song is so growing on me along w FEFU and If I could being the classic greatest of all time and that album Rift will go down as epic bluegrass and that tour 1994 belongs to Allison Krauss Her album Forget About It I have memorized but back to the show Set 1 being great is a great start This is the best show of the 4 day run but it never reaches epic peaks even though it has the best song ever The Lizards and Sea and Sand maybe my favorite cover of all time along w David Bowie NOT the song but his song It Aint Easy off Stardust I named Ziggy my fat rat cat after that album The Blaze on was very nice and I dont even like that song I am not a smoker and only used to vape so now it is gummies once I go back to work I had to be clean for 2 months to get weed out of my blood and urine and hair even 2001 was very nice and always works w a great light show on a beach in the dark so cool that must have been to get that funky great song I got one on my very first show and it was better than this one but both are great 2-21-03 had a nice Waste and Je sus tease in it and then a Stash tease also so cool this one was not as good as the MJ dedication in Camden 2010 but it was great nonetheless and a must listen to. The Weekapaug without Mikes was cool and reminded me of my first 2 sandwhich shows in Cinci and that was the first time they did this but now it has been done 3 times FULL version of Weekapaug the 1 minute version does not count they did once as an opener I think As encore that is pretty darn cool and what an encore this was how fun is that dance party to end a beach show I hope they were not in hell and did not even know like Olivia's Pool I love that song Oblivious Fool I used to think it was called when I was a nube Phish LOVES wordplay and fucking w the new fans and they sure did w me w that one Like the lyrics to Cavern making no sense
Piper is 1 of my all time favorite songs but I prefer it in 1999 and 2000 not when it first came out in 1998 when it just petered out after 7 minutes w no jam but when it was 20 minutes long and epic w Guy Forget or what I call KEE FORSHEE oh yes so glad they brought that back in 2023 finally lol
Piper was great in 2003 and even shitty year 2004 I remember the one from 7 19 2003 and 6-19-2004 and and what I thought would be the last 2 set show EVER in Camden 8 12 04 That Piper opener w that glowstick war on the lawn when I looked behind me from the pavillion is tatooed in my brain because I thought it was the last glowstick war of Phish I would ever see and thankfully I was so wrong and 3.0 and 4.0 starting w this 2nd show proved me oh so very wrong but Piper is just not the same jam vehicle it once was
The show was FULL of great covers This was a cover show GTBT is a classic Zepplin song I prefer No Quarter Ramble on is my favorite and oh yes Johnny B Goode would have taken this show over the top but they have yet to play that 2 3 or 4 point 0 It may be Back to the Future for that one Shafty is such a great song I always think of Weigh and it did not have that w it but it had 1 of my 2 new fav Page songs I Always Wanted It this Way along w MEAP those songs sound like Synth Rave Party epicness I would love to hear them both in one show like Maze and Bowie at Star Lake to throw us fans off as to what they are starting to play it was fun and the highlight of the first night 7 2123 Did they do it at MSG Donuts I wanna say no and that they have never done it you can do it Page you can play both epic songs in one night along w Sea and Sand Strange Design Coil and all the best Page songs like Lizards and Home
