fhqwhgads This is a great show. Not least of all because it opens first-set, first-song with a long, jammy Down with Disease, particularly notable in retrospect because it's a finished version, which has become somewhat rare these days. The next big song of note for me personally is Bathtub Gin, which is always reliable for "Type 1.5 jamming" but which had a very good year in 2000 (Cf. 6/23 and 6/28 from the Summer.) You Enjoy Myself has a vocal jam that I actually enjoy, and I'm not a big vocal-jam guy. The Tube to open Set II is a .Net Noteworthy Jam, but I don't find it that enthralling... certainly not as worthy of note as the Gin from Set I. Reba is a very good version, reminiscent in some ways of the version from just over a week earlier (9/14, which full show later became a Live Phish volume.) Trey's phrasing and licks are very similar to that 9/14/00 Reba, which is one of my top-5 Rebas of all time thus far. The Wedge out of Ghost is an interesting transition, though Ghost doesn't get quite far out. There's some banter in Meatstick about the dance and the Japanese lyrics, with Trey funnily saying they were in Japan "6-8 weeks ago" which if true means they returned there again after their brief tour of the country in June (which would be more like "12-13 weeks ago" by September.) Finally, Run Like an Antelope closes the set featuring a Meatstick tease, and Bold as Love dismisses us in order.
