Our audio recap of Leg II starts with the tour opener in Berkeley, California. Kicking off the run with one of their most impressive multi-night stands since their return, Phish’s shows at The Greek provided some of the most memorable jams from the entire summer. The band’s playing grew more cohesive over each of the three nights, and here is the night one.

I: Possum, Wolfman’s Brother, The Divided Sky, Funky Bitch, Kill Devil Falls, Halley’s Comet > Sample in a Jar, NICU, Bouncing Around the Room, Run Like an Antelope

II: Down with Disease > Free, Alaska, Back on the Train, Maze, Joy, Tweezer > Fluffhead

E: Loving Cup, Tweezer Reprise

Jam of the Weekend:

Down With Disease > Free” 8.5.10 II

This “Disease” jam gave us a sneak-preview of an improvisational style that blossomed through Leg Two – fast-paced, yet self-less and patient,  jamming in which Fishman threw down intricate, changing beats while other band members painted layers of texture and ambient sound and melody. The first significant jam of tour brought us into some truly new-school Phish.
