DOWNLOADS OF THE WEEKEND
Fans were thrilled when this Fall ’97 gem’s soundboard was leaked about two years ago. A outstanding show from start to finish, highlights of this show abound. From the powerful opening of Curtain > YEM, you knew there was no messing around this evening. With an addictive Crosseyed-laced jam, this YEM is highlight of the three nights right off the bat. A soundboard Black Eyed-Katy is a clear treat, and a solid Theme rounds out the first set. A five song second set filled with improvisation featured amazing versions of Limb, Slave, and a Ghost that has often been credited for starting the “start/stop” phase that dominated late ’97. Only the first night of one of the most exciting weekends of the tour, this show got the Centrum warmed up in a hurry. Crispy SBD!

With the anticipation of Trey starting his short Fall run this week, I figured I’d put this recent show up so people can familiarize themselves with some of the new material he will most likely be playing. With a first set of Trey Band classics, and a second set dominated by new material, Trey’s “comeback” show was much more than a welcome home. With the Phish looming, Trey’s tour is, all of a sudden, far more interesting and relevant. A breeding ground for new songs, TAB is a place for Trey to get loose, work out his new jams, and begin re-sharpening for a few concerts in March. It’s on- starting Thursday! See you at Roseland!
