dscott Not bad for a 50-minute shorty. Very energetic and crisp performance. Highlights include a charged Sample, a deft mid-jam segue from It's Unfinished into a frenetic no-nonsense Antelope, and a patiently euphoric Hood. Decent audience recording, taboot.

The brief Eurosets opening for Santana were hit and miss. This one is in the former category. Not a must-hear, but an enjoyable listen if you happen to make its acquaintance.

"We are 'Special Guest', we're happy to be here tonight." - Trey

Because Phish has built a career on playing two-set shows, the single-set shows they have played tend to pale in comparison. The band has generally played it safe when performing for new audiences mostly unfamiliar with their sound, sticking with in-the-box versions of their most accessible material. This holds true when playing festivals in the U.S. or abroad, or playing as an opening act. Although none of the circulating one-set Phish shows from these tours are considered essential listening, here's one that I feel stands out from the rest. '96 was my favorite year for Harry Hood, and this version from does not disappoint. If these Phish hors d'ourves leave you wanting more, you can dig for recordings of Phish jamming with Carlos Santana and his band. Bon appetit!

DaReba Last set before a week off and a blazin summer U.S tour. The boys play some tight little diddies before Antelope.
This Antelope is what we've been waitiing for, really, thatonly showed up sparingly in italy, barely in France and returned in Germany. You can almost hear the Antelope from Clifford Ball hear in terms of energy and pure Trey energy.
This is the level of play that will make the summer 96 tour in the states so awesome
