mterry My first show. I remember the MEAT wouldn't ever stop. I can remember half the pavilion just taking a seat. I had tried to get to the December show in NC a few months before, but being turned down by my mom. The joys of being 16.....I begged this girl to go with me to the show. In hindsight, it would have been better to go solo. But going to a phish show while in highchool? Awesome!

This show was over 13 years ago, and yes, and the time was a flop. However, upon listening, this show is packed full of goodness

SOAM - Does it get any better than this? 18 minutes of an amazing rollercoaster of minor to major back to minor key changes. From 5:14 on this is a beast. It's patient. It's driven. It's what a SOAM needs to be. This was easily the highlight of the show. But, there are some more gems...

Jibboo > FEFY - Listening to it now, reminds me of the Ghost > FEFY pairing in Asheville. A Jibboo to start the second set, full of loops and energy coming from Trey followed by a 8+ minute FEFY that is pure beauty. I'd love to see more of this song in rotation these days and believe it to be a good mid set two song that could replace Wading....

Scent - Ok. This one is an odd one. Page keeps it classy as always. Trey at 4:45 to 8:25. Weird, weird stuff. But nevertheless, a clean Scent.

And then WTU - It's been nice to see this song get some attention these days. It was awesome catching it in Portsmouth and CLT I believe. However, this one is a gem.

Over-all, the show by today's standards would garnish a higher rating. For '00, nope. But if you haven't given this show a shot just grab a copy from the spreadsheet and if you like get the SHN version.
