Review by jackl

jackl I've seen about six random shows this year so far before Indio (Hamptons, Jones Beach 1, SPAC, Indio 1) and can say without a doubt that the second and third sets last night were the first I've seen since the breakup that rocked out and sounded like the "old" Phish of the 90's that we all loved.

Short review: best Suzy Greenberg, EVER. Best Loving Cup EVER (in versions that are unlikely to be topped because of the onstage presence of the guests Sharon Jones and her Dap Kings horns). Great, jammed out, spooky Ghost for Halloween. All best versions. Get this recording, you will not be disappointed.

Extremely satisfied. Got my money's worth last night. The band does not seem to be practicing or warming up or "phoning it in" any more. Phish is back.

Sorry this is not a terribly articulate review, but I'm shaking off the sunday morning cobwebs and waiting to shower and get back to the polo field for coffee, commemorative donuts and the acoustic set and just wanted to get my 0.02 on this show since it seems YMMV.

The trainwreck at Coventry has at last been redeemed.
