'80s Phish equals pure energy. They come to play their hearts out, and succeed. This is a very good recording, the major problem is the audience chattering throughout the entire set.

Well, this set starts off with a very energetic Fluffhead, and it is so very nice to hear Trey on vocals again instead of The Dude of Life. And as if they weren't in full gear already, Fire kicks it up two more notches. Trey may have even kicked it up two-and-a-half notches.

Next comes the first Suzy with Trey on vocals, and it is another one that is full of pep, and contains a really good solo. Suzy seems like quite an easy song to solo/jam over, looking forward to the ones to come.

Camel Walk starts off at not a walking pace, but a crawling pace. After the lyrical section, the jam picks up slowly until it meets up with Holdsworth's Bridge. Once they return to the lyrics, it jumps back down to the crawling pace, and finishes up with somewhat of a Stop/Start jam.

Back Porch Boogie Blues is really fantastic, and it starts off with a few Ramblin' Man teases by Gordon. During this song the band really connects and the pace becomes lightning quick. Next up, Trey introduces Blue Monk as "three quarters of the Bob Dylan Band." Blue Monk is played without Trey.

Clod picks up once Trey returns, and is followed by Lushington. Interesting to hear another section of Fluffhead, The Chase, after Clod.

Peaches en Regalia needed to be restarted in the first few seconds, but once they got it right it really cooked. And Swing Low Sweet Chariot was dominated by Trey instead of Page this time. This was immediately followed by a fan yelling for Boogie On Reggae Woman.

And the request was granted, as Mike really destroys the intro to Boogie On. A solid jam, but nothing earth shattering, much like the Ya Mar that follows. Corinna on the other hand was just perfect. A nice slow pace that was picked up during the jam, and brought back down for the final lyrics.

Marley made his presence known, and Dog Log was played. Another solid song with not much to add. And the show finishes with an Alumni Blues. This one really smoked leading into Letter to Jimmy Page, and ended shortly after with no jam to speak of.

Highlights include Camel Walk and Back Porch Boogie Blues.

A lowpoint would probably be Dear Mrs. Reagan as it seemed to really lose the audience.

Back Porch Boogie Blues is definitely the highlight of the show for me. They really tune in to each other and hit on all cylinders. It looks like it was played at a few other shows, a handful of which are in circulation.

Eh, a lot of one-offs included.

Lushington bust out would be amazing though. Must be the next BIG one on the list.
