Night two on the Rocks!! Wilson opener. Wilson chant is happening for sure at this point. Takes a couple of rounds to get started, but it’s happening!

Sometimes, when Phish plays multiple night stands, the first set of the second night just seems like the third set. The early YEM confirms that this is no standard first set of toss-aways. This set rocks from note-one straight through the killer Stash. Really, there is no low-point! Check out the Tela, too! I know I’m not getting too detailed here, but trust me… This set has been a great listen.

Second set is more of the same. It’s almost shockingly great. This FM broadcast recording helps, for sure. It’s got this great mix of sbd and crowd noise. Dig it!

It’s worth noting that Fluffhead in 1994 could absolutely anchor a second set. It’s big here even after the intense ‘lope. It works when people aren’t expecting Type II jams every night. Jaded 3.0 fans would be disappointed, I suppose, with non-jamming song in the heart of Set 2. Not me!

It’s also worth noting that the Mule Duels are starting to get stretched longer now. Page is taking them out there. Trey’s not yet really trying to one-up Page yet, but the “duel” is stretching out a bit more than it did in the spring. Entertaining to my ears… especially knowing how crazy they’ll be a year later.

The rest of the set is simply great Phish. Melt blows away the Melt from the other day, imo. Maze is great, and the first Frankenstein in almost 3 years had have been a treat for all those in attendance. It certainly shows off Page’s new keyboard really nicely.

Great show, as usual. This summer is gonna be fun!!

Thanks for reading.
