Review by westbrook

westbrook I think this show is somewhat neglected in light of the famous DSOTM show that preceded it. The song selection and flow are quite good if you ask me and there are a few must-hear jams in this show as well.

Buried Alive>Character Zero makes for a pretty raucous show opening pair, and Guyute gives the set a bit of sophistication. Gin is next, and Riverport it is not, but it is definitely a worthwhile first set jam with some tasty playing from Trey. The end of the Gin jam smoothly shifts to an interesting Ya Mar in which Trey solos in an unusually percussive manner. Birds and Brian and Robert are straightforward, but on the other hand Frankie Says is very atypical as it drifts into a pretty deep ambient segment (especially for the first set) before segueing to a nice set-closing Bowie. I believe this is the first of 2 extended Frankie Says, the other being 12/28/03.

The first two songs of the second set, Jim and Moma Dance, are not too special, but Runaway Jim does have a slightly extended and hard rocking jam. Piper>2001 is the meat of the second set and really is the selling point of the show. This is one out of the handful of jammed out Pipers to this point, and this one is a pretty intense rocker for much of its duration until an ambient outro jam, which leads us into a pretty good 2001. Not a monster jam, but it certainly gets the job done. Chalk Dust and Loving Cup ends the set with more rocking good times, and Squirming Coil offers Page the opportunity to entertain us with his usual beautiful soloing.

Overall, I think this is an above average Fall 98 show. Being the "show after" instead of "the show", it's relatively unheralded, but I recommend giving it a listen if you have passed over it before.

Highlights - Gin>Ya Mar, Fankie Says->Bowie, Piper>2001

dr32timmymeat At the moment this show has a 3.57 rating, which is just wild!

This is the coolest Frankie Says that I know of, and the Stash tease in Bowie is delicious. The Gin doesn't reach July '98 levels, but it's plenty good with loads of soaring, whirling shenanigans from Trey... it definitely peaks hard.

Runaway Jim, Piper, 2001 second set... really plenty to chew on here. 3.57 ain't make no sense!

fhqwhgads This show excites me! Thanks to the tapers, especially the one whose AUD I'm listening to right now. That's unusual placement for Character Zero, but it works. Bathtub Gin, I think, is more notable than the Ya Mar; Gin was just 2 legit 2 quit in 1998. Birds of a Feather packs a punch for its 6-some minutes. The amazing part of the first set, if you're into ambience, is the jam out of Frankie Says (-> David Bowie.) It's just gorgeous, soothing calm. The Moma Dance in the second set has a somewhat extended intro, at least in comparison to 3.0 versions. At this point in Phishtory, I'm sure some phans wondered if (and hoped that) Black-Eyed Katy would return; The Moma Dance had only been debuted on I think 6/30/98. That toe-tapping dance didn't last long, though, did it? Chalkdust is also phenomenal, and Coil is its usual thrilling and charming self. I'd have to say this is an average-great show, but--and I'm reticent to say this--average-great meant something somewhat different in Fall '98 than it has for the majority of 3.0. For what it's worth!

Review by ADAWGWYO

ADAWGWYO Saw the first 3 shows of the tour and was runnin low on cash so we skipped 11/2. Biggest mistake in my Phishistory. We heard what they played and needless to say this show did little to ease our pain. Unfortunately do not remember much of this one... AT ALL! Moma Dance is solid upon relisten. Memory suppression is an amazing thing

mcgrupp81 Ok show. Solid versions of Bowie and Jim. The highlight is definitely the Bathtub Gin. Not great, but an above average version that is somewhat compelling.
