fhqwhgads This show contains the best Sample in a Jar I've yet heard. I was forcibly impressed by how the Sample openers nowadays go in a different sort of direction entirely. It's still the same song, but... I'm musing here on the magnificence of Phish's ability to infuse such life into their music. I noticed that the crowd is quiet on the audience recording during the beginning of Scent of a Mule, which features a stunning "Duel." The other highlights of the first set for me were It's Ice and Maze (and I'm always ready for a Strange Design.) Set II contains what's become known as the FLeezer ("Finger Lakes Tweezer") as well as a jam out of Theme From the Bottom, which is played admirably. This Tweezer is almost an hour long, or as near as makes no difference, and I can easily imagine that the crowd might've been swept away by it. I don't want to spoil it for you. Acoustic Army has some audience participation, I guess? And While My Guitar Gently Weeps closes the show on what I have to assume is an imploring note: part invitation to continue on the tour, and part meanderminded personal externalization. The practice regimen seems to have been a bit stricter at this point? Or maybe they were just honed from playing shows more often. Whatever "It" is about this show, I'd welcome it any time I might see Phish.
