spreaditround SET 1: Sweet Virginia: Debut of the Rolling Stones songs. Drugzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

First Tube: Standard >

AC/DC Bag: First Bag since the forever famous Boise Bag! Could there be another nutty version to follow up on that one? NEIN.

Dirt: The intro with the whistling and vocals…off. They sound – ahem – wasted. Michael Ray was in the house, so...

Guyute: Standard.

Bouncing Around the Room: Standard.

Cars Trucks Buses, Funky Bitch, Mozambique, Cavern: Tim Green guest spot is awesome. Michael Ray is ok, light years better than 9.9.00.

First set summary: Nothing here for me to revisit. Guest spots went on too long. Nothing to revisit.

SET 2: Twist: This version is just straight up rock and roll, Trey leading the charge the whole way. No him sitting in the back, mini keyboard, and loops. No sir. This Trey is aggressive and goes for the throat. He lights the world on fire with the end shred on this one. Must hear version! The fact that this is not in jamcharts is laughable and criminal. >

Piper: Another Trey led rock fest. In your face and aggressive, but short.

Mountains in the Mist: For those in attendance, I imagine this breather was needed as the previous 25 minutes were hard core.

Heavy Things: Brutal placement. That’ll leave a mark. Not only that but this one is slow and listless. Call to the Post teases after Heavy Things is over.

Birds of a Feather: Call to the Post tease at 4:02. This jam starts of very quiet. Trey and Mike playing off one another nicely. 7:35 Trey lays back and Page takes the lead while Trey creates a loop. Trey seems tentative here and there. Uncertain where to go and what to do. Around 9:30 is where everyone picks up the pace and collectively shreds through the ending. This is a decent jam.

Meat: Horrible placement.

Down with Disease: This is one of the shreddiest versions you will ever hear. Trey is a rock God here. Do yourself a favor and check this one out, it will blister your behind.

ENCORE: Meatstick: Standard >

Rocky Top: Standard

[1] Phish debut.
[2] Michael Ray on trumpet and Tim Green on saxophone.

Sweet Virginia made its Phish debut at this show. The last four songs of the first set featured Michael Ray on trumpet and Tim Green on saxophone. Call to the Post was teased before and during Birds. Trey teased Meatstick at the end of Rocky Top.

Second set summary: Really up and down. Shows like this is where you wish they would have a setlist written down and stick to it. Twist, Piper and DWD all smoke. Birds is decent. If you are looking for Type II jamming, just keep on moving, nothing to see here – please disperse. If you want shreddy jams, then you will find some gems in here. For me, this show is below average. I would rate it a 3.2 out of 5.
