Review by andrewrose

andrewrose Wasn't at this show but the Bathtub Gin to open Set II is another beautiful example of underrated Fall 98 jamming. If there was a bigger most-valuable-jam-song between Summer 97 and Dec 99, I don't know of it... and you could argue things peaked for Bathtub in Nov 98 in terms of how frequently great the jams were. This and the 11/29 version are both stellar.

Review by Bob_Loblaw

Bob_Loblaw This is one of the very best shows from this year. And that is due to not just a very strong 2nd set but also an incredibly good 1st set.

Divided Sky is epic, has to be one of the longest pauses ever. Trey just relishes it and keeps going with it very inspired version. The Frankie Says after is my favorite version and likely one of the very best ever played. Free is also in the conversation for best version ever, it gets super funky and the guys are as linked together as they can be. And to end this epic set is likely the best version they've ever played of Bold as Love. Best this best that. Yes this set is the business.

You'd think they were out of gas by Set 2. But no you get a nice big Gin jam right out of the gate. You get swept up into a sky of bliss right away. And although it does have some parts and pieces from Gins before it's near flawless in it's execution. You get a nice bustout with TMWSIY>Avenu>TMWSIY. The Moma Dance is solid. And YEM is a straight up dance party from beginning to end, very fun version.

And there's nothing quite like a Frankenstein encore with Freebird as the cherry on top.

This gets a rare 5 stars from me, it has everything I want in a show.

okeepaphan When I listed to this Gin jam, around the 11-15 minute mark, I keep waiting for someone to go "Heeeeeey Macarena". Trey's licks sound like the lyric portion. I'm doing the dance now in my desk.

mcgrupp81 Set I--Solid Divided Sky

Set II-Bathtub Gin was excellent. Moma Dance was solid. Slave was better than usual. Decent YEM.

For me, the Bathtub Gin was the highlight of the 3 night run. The jam goes a lot of places. Several solid Gins in 98 indeed.

Review by bouncin7

bouncin7 I believe this GIN deserves much praise and many adjectives. The point at beginning of 18 min or so, Trey plays those really high notes with the loop running and just owns it. Trippy as trippy my plan......then he so gently segues back into a bouncy reprise of the GIN theme as if to say, "Oh I'm back to my senses." This GIN is a must hear for any Phishy-head. 5 stars!

fhqwhgads Above average-great show, 4 out of 5 stars, in my opinion. As with the previous night at the same venue, the setlist is on point, especially the song choices in the first set. The Bathtub Gin to open Set II is about 24 minutes long and ranges over a lot of movements, including a segment that feels similar to the "millennial" jamming we'd hear the next year at Big Cypress. The Moma Dance > Slave to the Traffic Light > You Enjoy Myself is a very strong way to close the show, too, and the "Fake Light Tease" (house lights went on temporarily on purpose before the encore) is funny with Frankenstein and Free Bird to send us on our way.

Review by Corey

Corey The First set was all the money, in my opinion. Llama rocked my socks off and the venue was Waaaaay over-crowded. Horn left everyone standing in awe at the sound and its HUGE-ness. I get a kick was totally for spite. % Sky made Trey cry. (and brought the rest of us close to tears as well.) Free was the money maker as well as Bold as love to thunder threw the end of the set.

Gin. Dance. Moma. Dance. You Enjoy Myself. Dance.

What song is it you wanna hear a capella?
