Review by TheEmu

TheEmu This show gets off to a ripping start with Mike absolutely tearing it up in Llama. You have short but very nice jams in Coil and Jim, and you have the highlight of the show in an excellent YEM, led once again by hardcore thumpage from Cactus. Set I is capped off by a really good OKP > Suzy with Low Rider jam, and a Bowie into with abundant Low Rider teasing. The Bowie jam, though, is merely OK, and set II is kind of a letdown. Not that set II is badly played, but with a Buried Alive > Fluffhead > Mike's Groove to open, and the great Mike work in set I, I thought the second set would be much hotter. Weekapaug is OK, but clocks in under 6 minutes, the Esther is sloppy, and the Possum is just decent. On the strength of that first set, though, I'm still going with 4 stars here.

Review by thelot

thelot Fantastic audience source available for this show. Big thanks to John Redmond for another killer old school audience recording!

The show kicks off with the very first Llama opener. Smokin’ version that gets a nice reaction from the crowd. Nice Landlady. Awesome YEM with a jam that saw less guitar trickery and more tomfoolery. That’s followed up by an inspired B&D section and vocal jam. Solid Low Rider jam in Suzy. They continue the Low Rider theme during Bowie’s hi-hat hijinx. Good yet pretty straightforward jam to close out the first half.

Buried Alive>Fluffhead makes a nice pairing to kick off set 2. Nice Arrival section. Another strong Mike’s Groove from top to bottom. The hardest man in show biz, Chris Lee takes center stage for Love You. On a side note, I’ve known CLee for a number of years. He went to Taft with Trey. I’ll have to ask him the story behind the shout out on this night. A well played Possum closes out set 2. Triple Encore? Encore 2 outshines with a great Donna Lee and GXBX. No sign of a third acappella encore. It appears the setlist noted on phish.net is incorrect. Possum clearly ends set 2 with two completely separate encores. I’m not sure about this third encore because I’m sure John would’ve captured it if it had taken place.
