zsmith0307 Finally, Phish switches up the setlist from the fairly mundane tunes that had permeated the previous 10 days' shows and play some rarer and older-school tunes.

The question is, does the playing measure up? I would emphatically say yes. No jam segment matches 2/17 set II, but there are a lot of solid highlights.

The Carini in the first set, as others have noted, is a major highlight and an interesting version.

Set Two is solid all the way through. Daniel of course is a fun bustout. Suzy gets very funky. It's so fun to listen to this tour and hear the band slowly develop the style that would make later tours legendary. Maze is above average, and I love the "serene" jam that comes out of Mike's Song.

Get this show!
