DaReba i meant PINK FLOYD tease above lol
Solid AC/DC into sparkle. Very nice sign.in light of the sort of lethargic europe toru in the summer these earl fall shows leading unto the Garden the chicago on halloween are a blast to listen to. this fun pairing in Slave!
nothing earth shattering except the early placement of it.
Bouncin is just continuing the old hits theme.
Very yummy SOAM goes TYPE II and interesting ending ta boot! then continuing with the great pairings they bust out FLUFFHEAD!! buff said.
always awesome. They range in the jamming at the end of course but consistently delivers. Trey flubs a lick but its in rhythm so it doesn't matter. The check it out part is always fun. by the time we hear life is just a bunds of joy you are ready to take off....some jams make you just want them to play the song all night. This is one of them. nothing particularly crazy but the chords are so beautifully major you gotta love it. I compare all fluff jams to clifford ball. this was pretty close in terms of Trey's focus.
Swept away steep are perfectly placed in between the Antelope that makes this another clifford ball referenced set. The second set 8/17/96 is probably Phish's most realized vision of a Phish set. The slave in the early part of this set made this a humdinger . This Antelope has to be otherworldly to approach 8/17/96. actually trey starts this jam off with the same theme as the clifford ball version but in a lower octave. the band lon=ves it so we can enjoy it lol! this time there are no dancers spinning above Trey's head so they focus. wow Trey takes us type II with a '92 like ferocity. Fish just lays it down with the double bass and then when they bring it back to the antelope theme is just ' lite werk'. this is what they were born to do. easy. Phenomenal. Only reason this isn't better than the clifford ball version is because that was clifford ball and there was a dancer hanging above the stage and the crowd was going bonkers and so was trey.
The crowd deservedly goes crazy on this night though.
