An amazing, flowing, 2 set show chock full of highlights and rarities.
One comment: When they moved out of the very promising “Simple” Jam into “Makisupa” for a moment I was mildly disappointed. Then they start playing “Night Nurse” and it was ON again. The Ghost jam and the Weekapaug>Ghost/Night Nurse reprise>Can’t You Hear Me Knockin’>Weekapaug>Llama Reprise was just completely off the hook.
One other comment: Light was in the original arrangement, without the vocal reprise. The jam got very very funky, and ended absolutely organically. Haven’t listened back yet, but I think this one might have edged out the Greek Light for best yet…
@Jtran. Thanks for the recap. I felt like I was actually at the show during parts of your recap. Thanks for sharing.
@Joechip. I hear you on that Light possibly being one of the top notch versions to this point. I still need to do some further investigating of it. But on first listen this morning it was absolutely blowing my mind it was so thick and gooey.
Kaya- been downing 1,000 mg of EmergenC a day. Stuff is great. The sleep thing i have zero control over. I think my wife is more excited about not having to deal with the kids for a night and being able to sleep in than the actual show on friday. Can’t wait to rage it with all ya’ll.
doing laundry this morning after the show and almost had a minor crisis. put shorts with ticket still in the pocket (and barcode) in the wash. got to dig it out about 5 minutes in with code still in tact.
sweet show. they are definitely firing on all cylanders right now. got up about 20-30 rows back dead center or so. I think someone needs to put out an instructional video or something for the kids so they can learn how to dance. It’s ok youngins. feel free to let it all hang out. No need to hold anything back. you can dance if you want to…
night nurse was pretty out of nowhere. it’s a staple of the local reggae show (Rockers on 88.9, WERS) and it gets stuck in my head from time to time. never really expected to hear it at a phish show.
have some thoughts on the “business” of phish and the sustainability of the scene, but it’s a discussion for another time. one thing I do know is that the music is at a very high level right now.
