Review by n00b100

n00b100 The first set won't particularly blow you away or anything (although the Maze definitely peaks very nicely), and perhaps cognizant that the set hadn't been the greatest ever, the group drops a nifty Ghost at the end of the set, one that quickly drops the standard funk groove for something more melodic and mesmerizing, maybe even close to the ferocious hose of your classic Bathtub Gin jams, or the 7/6/98 version with Page given as much room to work as Trey had. It's a lot of fun, if not the most exploratory Ghost ever, and it should at least by heard by the Ghost fans of the world (of which I am most assuredly one).

The second set starts up with a reasonably good, if not upper-echelon 2001 (Mike's bass is especially prominent here), then slides into Rock and Roll. The song portion is fine, if not as muscular as Phish's 3.0 rendition, but the jam takes a more relaxed avenue and peters down into a quiet ambient range, which (as you might expect) leads into a perfectly fine Taste. Frankie Says, which I will never say no to in a set, comes next, and the band then churns out a milkshake-thick Gumbo that (like the R&R before) melts away into an ambient fog before one of Trey's melodic vapors morphs into Chalk Dust Torture and the band rips off a frenetic version. We get a standard-for-98 close, and then YEM for an encore, and it's a decent enough version, even though it never finds any kind of peak. Not sure if I'll ever listen to this one again, but it's a very reasonable picture of Fall '98, and the Ghost definitely deserves a listen.

Review by JMart

JMart I can tell you that, immediately after hearing this first set conclude, I turned to my buddy and said "that's exactly what a first set is supposed to do" and he agreed. Nice songs played well. A high energy opener and an inspired call from curtain to sample. One of my favorite ghosts. There's only a minor peak, but I feel like this one's all the more remarkable for its restraint.
Gumbo featured a ton of fog. There was a conga line during been caught stealing. I think this is worth a listen!

Review by The_Good_Doctor

The_Good_Doctor After the highly lauded 1997 barn burner, the boys rolled back into Winston-Salem for another fall engagement. An interesting element of this show are two rare covers: 'Something' and 'Been Caught Stealing' which isn't surprising since Fall 1998 was filled with a lot of 'new' covers (a bit like Summer 2010).

The first set 'Ghost' is brooding and introspective without venturing irreparably into the netherword - for better or worse. It is still enjoyable and leads in a spirited delivery of 'Golgi' to close the set.

Second set brought the high octane and it is absolutely worth a listen. I think this 2nd set is a bit over looked but it is definitely a keeper. 2001 > RnR seems like a 'typical' 3.0 pairing but keep in mind this was only the 3rd time they played RnR and it was within a month of being introduced in the 'Loaded' costume. It is funny to think about it like that - I was listening to the DotM show on the drive to the show as my buddy had literally just received a Maxell copy in the mail a day before - and in those days that was lightning fast.

The second set closed with a raging take on 'Been Caught Stealing.' I was in the bleachers in the lower level and it felt like an earthquake when they dropped into it. I still remember seeing Big Red jumping up and down on stage while they ripped through with a ferociousness I had yet to see Phish embody. Rock and Roll indeed!

Review by art_vandelay

art_vandelay not only was this a great performance, it was probably the best light show out of any phish show i've attended....chris kuroda was in the zone that night, and it didn't go unnoticed by my friends & i. not a huge crowd, but those who showed up were rewarded. this show probably gets overlooked because the hampton shows were next on the tour schedule, but if you were there, i'm sure you got your money's worth....

Review by spreaditround

spreaditround SET 1:

Cities: Standard, played close to the vest.

The Curtain: Standard. >

Sample in a Jar: Has a little extra juice to it.

Ginseng Sullivan: Standard.

Bouncing Around the Room: Standard.

Maze: Surely melted some faces.

Something: Standard.

Ghost: All gas no brakes. Seriously. This is straight hellfire. Trey is a juggernaut. Would definitely recommend. The last minute things mellow out with Trey playing around with the reverse reverb and Page throwing in some heavy effects. Would recommend this version. >

Golgi Apparatus:

SET 2:

Also Sprach Zarathustra: The chorus or whatever you would call it doesn’t even start until about 7:20. Dance party USA. Above average version, very good stuff. Would recommend this version. >

Rock and Roll: Plenty of reverse reverb in this one, especially at the end – it’s very mellow and spacey – pretty cool. Decent version of Rock and Roll. ->

Taste: Page on a mission for his solo, crushes that baby grand. Trey destroys his section too. Monster, monster Taste. May as well be straight out of summer 97. How this is not a jamcharts version is absolutely criminal. Would highly recommend this version.

Frankie Says: Standard.

Gumbo: Very funky at first. And slow. From there – in the latter stages – this one gets muddy, dark, and has a certain edge to it. Then some big, crazy effects starting around 9:18 will snap you of the ether. Nice juxtaposition. Very cool Gumbo right here, way above average and bordering on great. Would recommend this version. ->

Chalk Dust Torture: Ripped.

Frankenstein: Standard.

Been Caught Stealing: It’s less than tight to open so it takes the crowd a good while to figure out what this is. Then right before the lyrics the lightbulb goes on.


You Enjoy Myself: Mike is loud and proud in this one. Love the theme that develops in the jam. So smooth. Very reminiscent of a fall 97 jam, the funk is very deep. Drums and bass jam is super sick too. Killer encore! Would recommend this version.

Summary: Solid first set with Ghost being the obvious anchor. Very good second set, lots of fun. Taste really blew me away! I think the rating of 3.848/5 (92 ratings) is right on the money.

Replay Value: Ghost, Also Sprach Zarathustra, Taste, Gumbo, You Enjoy Myself

PHATTSKIS I reported in an earlier review (Murphy Center--11/15/1998) that I had missed this show but I just found my backstage pass from that night. Too cool--don't usually save ticket stubs but did save almost all my aftershows, Betty Fords and laminants--stoked! I am gonna have to dig this up and listen--its been years! there ya have it!
