PHATTSKIS Just wanted to add a quick statement about this particular night. Rare in the fact of 5 song first set, 6 song second set, everything jammed out.

We had tickets in the same Rage Side seats as night before but one row back (2nd row on first night, 3rd row on this night). We had been on tour since Vegas and would make many of the shows all the way to the east coast stopping at Winston-Salem.

PHiSH were just starting the cow funk nastiness that we all love and the seeds that were planted in Vegas and SLC sprouted on second night Denver. There is reason behind this as an official release.

Take a listen to the opening Tweezer and you will feel McNichols (a place where years before I caught some amazing Grateful Dead shows) start to lift off. Reba took us back in time and and Train Song gave us a second to have some mental imagery provided before we would launch back into outer space with my favorite Ghost of 1.0. I will leave that there. Closing up with a charging Fire, Trey's second tip of the hat to Jimi (first night Isabella) rocked us into set break. That Jimi influence would pop up through out the tour ahead.

The second set picks up perfectly where set one ended with Fire and led us back into the Funk of DwD which somehow worked it's way into the last ever version of Olivia's/Oblivious Pool/ Fool, whatever you wanna call it. Being a jammy, dirty toned rocket,ZERO we wanted this to keep going but this was the last one before it melted into Shafty later on down the road. Johnny B Goode was an anomaly (considering the 6 previous versions I had seen) as it had a long noodle afterwards before leading into the Page rave up of Jesus Left Chicago, always one of my favorite covers. And definitely check out the phun in YEM (I heard it last night on PHiSH Radio and was prompted to relisten and write this review.

The irony is, this its all in MY mind...
