skr213 The energy all weekend in BGCA was firey. Unfortunately, the first two nights failed to deliver that *complete* show that would knock your socks off. Friday's set 1 was amazing, but then set 2 was a bit uneven. Same could be said for Saturday. But Sunday's set 2 was obviously what we're all here for. Type 2 up the wazzoo, and not just the nice and happy stuff that they've been throwing at us - these jams got dark and evil, just like I likes 'em!! When Jim went type 2, I figured that would be our main course of true improv for the evening - and if it were, I would have been satisfied. But NO, we got so much more! While it would be silly to expect that this year's Light would have a "moment" like last year's, this one had it's own unique highlights that will bring me back to listening to this one for years to come. It's transition into Bowie was sublime. The rest of the set was fantastic gravy. Then what will the encore be? Most people around me were guessing Loving Cup or Bold as Love (since that guy had a Bold as Love sign for the whole weekend and it had been a while since they'd played it). But SANITY?? Who called that one?! I'll give you a hint: NO ONE! It was sweet. And then, of course, they still followed it up with a smoking Bold as Love. Thanks again Phish! You may not play out here often enough, but when you do, you certainly make it worth our wait!!
