Acoustic Sets: Thoughts Out On The Page – The Brothel Wife [OPT]

What is so great about the acoustic arrangement is how it reveals the truth of a song.  A song is really made up of two essential components—lyrics and melody.  The rest is decoration.  Phish are fantastic decorators; so good, in fact, that it is often easy to forget about the ingeniously built structure underneath.  Only a song with an exceptionally sturdy foundation can excite us—jam or no jam—every time it’s played. Show me a vet who doesn’t get the least bit excited when the first notes of Cavern ring out and I’ll show you someone who is wasting his $60.
