    Just downloaded both nights, am ready to hear them for myself. Always love a Gumbo and I think ADITL is one of the best covers they do.

    Paging Rontele for any thoughts, opinions, reviews.....

    I am back. And mind you that these are some musings and ramblings of a very tired individual, who did not sleep last night, flew nearly across the country and is currently in the office.

    Phish is back.

    Just some short recaps

    Friday, Set 1 was emotionally and physically intense. Their return, the bust out of Fluffhead and playing a nearly two hour set. Set II just as exhausting with everything from Taste on being the absolute heat (especially the Theme and Firsttube). Gordon's baseline in Firsttube was incredible.

    Saturday, Set 1 started off pretty bad, with some miscues and bad jams (i.e., Jim). After Mexican Cousing they REALLY brought it back together and absolutely skinned the carcass off of Antelope (FKNA!!!). Set II was the set of the weekend; the Ghost was ethereal and the Mike's Groove brought down the house.

    Last night was the most complete and well played of the shows. The Bathtub Gin, Tube, twist and Disease jams being the highlights. This was also the only show that really had ambient type II jamming. I need to go back and listen to the shows.

    More later. But Phish is back.

    Did they bust out the trampolines or do the mule dance thingie?

    I am almost through the 3rd night and the sound really good-I kept waiting for some crowd signals at the start of possum-the "all fall down" was always a true test to find of a fans commitment.

    I am looking forward to catching them this summer--i havent road tripped for a show in years.

    They did bust out the trampolines and did the Mule dance amongst others.

    I am going to download the shows tonight and give them a listen.

    Another observation from this weekend:

    Kuroda absolutely killed. Best lights I've seen at a show. He's got some new additions to the rig.

    From what I've listened to so far, very solid and tight.

    I've always liked the pre-99 stage setup more too. Glad to see they've adopted that again.

    "Backwards Down The Number Line" from Night 1, Set 2 is a great tune. Reminds me of something that would have been on Farmhouse. Sort of like "Heavy Things."

    Page no longer available. Did they announce more dates and then Phantasy Tour killed their server?

    Well, I listened to the 3/6 Divided Sky twice this morning. It's obvious that Trey was really concentrating and trying hard to get it right, but man there's still just something about it that sounds SO good to me. Obviously they've still got stuff to work on but they sound 100% better and tighter than I anticipated. John and Page really made the Hampton shows special IMO, but overall I think I underestimated them and their sincerity about the reunion in the months leading up to these shows. Man, it's good to have them back.
