Trey sang the verses of Fee through a megaphone. My Long Journey Home and I’m Blue I’m Lonesome were performed acoustic. My Friend did not contain the "Myfe" ending. Take Me to the River, which was incomplete, made its Phish debut in the second set. Trey teased Rock Lobster in the second David Bowie. Mike's Song contained a theme from Mission: Impossible tease by Page. The second Dog Log in the soundcheck was a cappella.

Review by Mikesgroover

Mikesgroover Making their way up the East Coast, the band finds a handful of really beautiful musical moments in the second set. MFMF has a slightly unusual ending, with a segment featuring only kick drum and piano before moving into Dog Faced Boy.

Simple is pleasant, but I struggled to pick up the teases mentioned in the notes -- if they're there, they're really subtle.

The Bowie is yet another outstanding version, with the Take Me to the River jam rising naturally out of the first jam section. It's more of a brief tease with some lyrics than a full on "debut", but the short interlude only helps the momentum -- the remainder of Bowie continues furiously, building to a blistering frenzy before the final notes.

Ya-Mar is better than usual, with a nice percussive segment that makes this version stand out. The other high point of the second set is a beautiful jam at the end of Mike's song that bleeds into Keyboard Army.

The crowd loved the Suspicious Minds and obligatory Carolina, but nothing musically rises above the ordinary for the rest of the show.

Review by spreaditround

spreaditround SET 1: Fee: Good opener, fans are pumped for it. >

Chalk Dust Torture: Big ovation at the beginning. Trey gets a little out of key for a few seconds towards the end.

Prince Caspian: Standard.

Divided Sky: Inspired version!

My Long Journey Home: Standard.

I'm Blue, I'm Lonesome: Standard.

Guyute: Standard. Trey clarifies the name of the song.

My Friend, My Friend: Interesting, evil outro jam ->

Dog Faced Boy: Standard. >

Runaway Jim: Surprisingly, this is fairly benign considering the placement.

SET 2: Simple: Super funky in the early going, Trey gets that pornofunk working, very sick! This evolves into Trey on the kit and Page leading the way ->

David Bowie: Rock Lobster by B52s tease at 0:35. Check out the insane echo effect during the UB40 stuff, way trippy. It’s quiet but with headphones on you can hear it. Nutty! The heavy metal jam that evolves a bit before TMTHR is nasty! ->

Take Me to the River: Extremely cool. And short unfortunately. ->

David Bowie: With 5 minutes left here, this one is deep, down in a chaotic rabbit hole. Very impressive. Page is just wailing away! Trey’s peak at 6:50 is hellfire, he has that doc SCREAMING! That is just one of several false peaks. They play the last minute or so at the speed of light. Crazy version!

Glide: Cool breather song! >

Ya Mar: Cool Fish solo.

Mike's Song: Theme from Mission: Impossible tease by Lalo Schifrin at 4:01. Love the note Trey holds in the 7-minute range, it kind of messes up and then he finds another one. The soloing he gets onto in the 9-minute range is beautiful, full of soul. Must hear Phish! He is channeling Pink Floyd here ladies and gentlemen. Page is playing around with Keyboard Army in the 11.5-minute range, Trey isn’t having it. He isn’t done praying to the guitar gods. Honestly that’s what this sounds like, it sounds like heaven. This is an incredible moment in the band’s history. One of the greatest Mike’s they ever played, let alone all of what they have played. Completely unique and off the cuff. And the way it effortlessly segues into Keyboard Army, this is why I PHISH. ->

Keyboard Army: Standard. >

Hold Your Head Up: Very brief but Page really tickles the ivories. >

Suspicious Minds: Standard. >

Hold Your Head Up: Standard.

Carolina: Obligatory.

A Day in the Life: Standard.

ENCORE: Good Times Bad Times: This one has a little extra juice; Trey’s tone just sounds so bad ass.

Summary: Replay value: MFMF, Simple, Bowie, Mike’s!!!!! Mike’s is an all-timer and that passage with Trey doing otherworldly stuff is some of my favorite music on the planet. Listen to that at all costs.
