Palmer What an excellent 2nd set opener> Begins in the original standard, quickly picking up tempo as Fishman lays down some quick -stick -cymbal riding. Trey noodling throughout as page begins to hold rhythm down with mike. Around the 9 minute mark it quickly escalates and moves forward pumping in a sprinting motion. Around minute 11 Trey begins playing around with some uniqueness, trying or plotting what to do with this monster they created. Around the 13th minute of this epic masterpiece begins to fade into a tranquil space like jam. Page going full Unsolved Mysteries with this one, keeping things mysterious and opting not to return to the standard Bag played in so many prior shows. This is just another reason 1998 is my year for phish, such space and ambient like music. Great version!

Pinhead_Larry Funky and ambiently textured, this Bag is my one of my favorite Bags ever. Slightly behind Boise '99 and slightly ahead Hampton '97. The jam breaks into an upbeat and light funk groove early on and doesn't let up. This section is highlighted by Trey's repetitive single-note playing and Page's funk keyboard doing most of the solos, though at times the two solo over each other which makes for a cool dual-action melody.

And then, the second movement. This is where things just go straight up into the air. Straight bliss and euphoria-jamming. Everyone is in perfect harmony. This is my favorite part of the jam, and quite possibly one of my favorite moments of Phish, though to be honest I probably have a list of 1000's of favorite moments of Phish.
