spreaditround PHISH, FRIDAY 02/21/1997
Florence, Italy

SET 1:

My Soul: Standard.

Foam: Standard.

Down with Disease: This is freaking incredible in the early going. It’s like they are deconstructing what would typically be the hyper spazz jam that comes out of the composed section. Not sure how I have over looked this one over the years! Super cool. From here this goes into a funky, jazzy type of jam for a few minutes. Trey then wrestles control back and guides the band back into the original theme and closes out the song proper. Would recommend. >

The Lizards: Standard.

Crosseyed and Painless: Standard.

You Enjoy Myself[1] The Firenze stuff is obviously awesome. But outside of that, this is a standard version for me.

SET 2:

Ya Mar: Standard.

Run Like an Antelope[2] Blue balls as it’s not finished but the segue is super cool into Wilson ->

Wilson[3] Notable for the heavy metal stuff, would recommend. Cool segue into Oh Kee ->

The Oh Kee Pa Ceremony: Very sloppy. >

AC/DC Bag: Standard. >

Billy Breathes: Standard.

Reba[4] Another unfinished banger gives even more blue balls. >

Waste: Standard. >

Prince Caspian: Standard.


Character Zero: Standard.

Summary: Interesting show, especially the first set. Not a ton to chew on though. 3.5/5

Replay Value: Down with Disease, Wilson

[1] During the “Wash Uffize Drive Me to Firenze" section, Fish exclaimed "this is a dream come true!"
[2] Unfinished; heavy metal jam rose from "Rye, Rye, Rocco" segment.
[3] Heavy metal style.
[4] No whistling.

During the “Wash Uffize Drive Me to Firenze” section of YEM, Fish exclaimed “this is a dream come true!” Antelope was unfinished and a heavy metal jam rose from the “Rye, Rye, Rocco” segment. Wilson was subsequently performed heavy metal style. Reba did not have the whistling ending.
Down with Disease, You Enjoy Myself, Wilson
