Review by thelot

thelot The last seven digital sources that preceded this show were such a treat!
Although this is a SBD source it leaves a lot to be desired given how degraded the tapes were. Still an enjoyable listen nonetheless. Art did a great job with what he had to work with here.

The recording kicks off with a nice soundcheck. Kevin featured this Eliza on his FTA show at the Great Went. Really cool uptempo version of Eliza.

Nice Landlady to open the show.
The Possum that follows absolutely rips! You can tell Trey is pumped up by the enthusiastic audience. Another really nice Llama. The levels gradually drop during Trey’s solo. The Asse Festival starts with another drum solo from Fish similar to 10/1 & 10/5. Trey introduces Henrietta for I Didn’t Know. Did Fish retire his Zero Man costume? Strong Mike’s Groove to close the first half. Groove was the highlight per usual.

The set starts off with Trey teasing Rocky Mountain Way. Solid versions of Suzy and Sky to open the set. They start up Oh Kee Pa but abort it and head into Tweezer teasing Oh Kee Pa again briefly. Strong Tweezer with a brief Rocky Mountain Way tease. A standalone Oh Kee Pa is up next. DaaM predictably transitions into Bouncin’. Popper joins Phish onstage for a great YEM and even participates during the vocal jam. He adds a unique twist to the BBFCFM set closer. For the encore I thought for sure they’d play Don’t Get Me Wrong, but instead they go with well played versions of Jesus Left and Fire. The interplay between Trey and Popper during Fire is fantastic!
