Review by AbeVigoda555

AbeVigoda555 Phish had played some great shows prior to this one, but this is the first one that combines spot-on performances with a super-crispy soundboard. This is the best-sounding old show I've yet heard. The energy is through the roof, and they manage to nail pretty much every song in their set. Highly recommended.

Review by TheEmu

TheEmu This is a really solid show. It kicks into high gear right out of the gate with Mike having a lot of fun in Funky Bitch, and they follow that up with probably the highlight of the show, a totally smokin' YEM. Very hot! Both Page and Trey are on fire there! There's a decent McGrupp, a strong Possum, and a very strong Antelope to close out the first set. (There's also a fairly shaky Fluffhead, but what the heck). It's fun to hear Trey joking with some people in the crowd during the piano solo in McGrupp. Anyway, the second set is also pretty darn strong, with very nice versions of Walk Away and AC/DC Bag. The highlight of Set II is certainly a totally wailing Slave. The Mike's Groove to close set II is solid, though not jaw-dropping. Maybe I've just been listening to too many average shows, but I'm going 4 stars on this one, as it is pretty strong throughout with several really ripping moments. Enjoy!

Review by Mr_Incompletely

Mr_Incompletely This is a great show.Mike and Trey come out hot with a Funky Bitch opener.Trey states that this one of the last shows before the band takes a break for six weeks. He says we are getting a little ancy and don't want to stop.An excellent version of You Enjoy Myself is one of the highlights of a very good set. This features a really strong vocal jam that is fast .A solid Mcgrupp comes next featuring a nice Page solo before ending the song.Trey then tells the crowd to sing along before Donna Lee, a jazz composition. An amazing Antelope ends the first set. Trey said Marco Esquandolas several times in a row. Trey absolutely dominates this Antelope.
Walk Away starts the second set and at first starts out strong. It slows down a bit and ends abrubtly. This ending was premature and sounds a bit awkward. A great Bag comes next with a nice guitar solo that segues in a strong Curtain. A solid Slave ensues creating the strongest three song stretch of the second set. A shorter standard Gin comes next that goes into Mike's Song. Mike's Song features some nice back and forth between Trey and Page. A smooth I am Hydrogen comes next before Weekapaug. The boys really sing it like they mean it on this version. Belting out and holding each syllable extra long.Trey has a nice solo in this version as well before they sing the end. The tape ends right after the last note is played.

Review by thelot

thelot Amazing sound on this source! The 1st set sounds like a multi-track recording. Set 2 still sounds great but isn’t quite as bright sounding as the first half.

The show itself is solid overall but a bit straightforward for the time. Highlights: Bitch, YEM (w/ Fishman adding percussion to the vocal jam), Possum, Fluffhead (The Chase section gets a little sloppy but overall a strong version), Curtain > Slave, Mike’s Groove
