Wow, this was great. I've had a love/hate relationship with Phish for a long time. I've only seen them four times (first time in a residence hall basement at University of Vermont in 1988, last time at the Somerville Theater in 1991, when the swirling hippies in the audience totally turned me off to them), but listened to tapes before I was old enough to go to shows. Though the slapping bass/stupid lyrics/white funk get on my nerves after a while, I still have a soft spot for these guys...mainly because they did a lot for the musicians in Burlington Vermont after they'd hit it big, including bringing local horn players on Letterman, "mentoring" younger musicians, spitting in money in the music scene. A good friend of mine plays in one of their side projects, and I've played a jazz set with Trey at a café. Cool story, bro..... Point is, I agree with both Harris and Hot. Looking forward to the next installment!
