Review by hen3ry

hen3ry I'm late to the reviewing party, but how can I go any longer and not talk about my first Phish show? This turned out to be the best BD show for me to go to, I had been in Canada less than a month earlier so when they opened up with O Canada, I totally cracked up! Being on the floor was awesome, I was on the Mike side too but about 50 feet back, still had a great view. The songs that really stick out for me were Daniel Saw The Stone, Limb By Limb (I always feel that has a very Jimi-esque feel to the beginning of that song), and then Walk Away to close out the first set.

Golden Age, I feel was well placed in the show and set the mood for most of the rest of the set. Loved all of the meandering through 46 days and that point when (I think) all four of them were on percussion. Sadly my recollection of Piper is hazy other than that 46 days tease at the end but as soon as I heard the first note of Possum, I erupted. (as did most of the rest of the crowd) One thing I will mention about myself, I am not a dancer, but for Possum, I was dancin'! Also, does anybody else feel they had "A Day in the Life" tease starting around the 6 minute mark of the song? Anyway, blistering version of Possum, can't get enough of it.

And finally, the encore, RnRS. I've read the other reviews and I don't get most of the criticism its received. I totally loved it. The line "You're wonderful... give me your hand" makes it the perfect song to use as a closer. The fact that Phish has only played that song twice has to change. The other thing that has to change is I have to couch tour much less and get my ass to my second Phish show. Peace.
