Review by Thunder

Thunder I will never forget this soundcheck. My crew and I had a smooth 3 day drive from Canada and were amongst the first 10,000 (just a guess) into the Big Cypress campground. Got set up, had a bite to eat and starting wandering around. At first, while we were walking around near the general tent, we just thought it was some phan spinning some phish on a soundsystem. But there was a crowd of maybe a dozen at the time and then, PRESTO, we actually put it together during the intro jam that, this was THE BOYS and they were soundchecking! Steadily the crowd grew as more and more folks who had been checking out the camground saw the ever growing crowd near the 'fence' dancing and cheering. I think maybe at the height of the crowd their might have been 150-200 phans. It was just so cool. Musically, this was THE SHIT! Very laid back/loose playing, but these jams were HOT, there was a different, very excited energy, Big Cypress energy. Highly recommended if you can find a good copy of this soundcheck, check it out (and let me know, ha!) An experience as rich as any Phish experiences I have had and one that I will always treasure.
