Cuyahoga Falls: Blossom Recap []

What followed will be known in Phish lore as When Harry Met Sally and is a simply outstanding 30 minutes of music. The “Sally” jam is sublime. All four band members are locked in and the result is a truly unique, must-hear jam. “Sally” melted into a “Harry” -> “Have Mercy” -> “Hood” that is simply majestic. Trey wove the “Have Mercy” theme throughout the “Hood” jam finishing off a set that is among the best of 3.0. I prefer the previous night’s second set somewhat, but which one you like better probably depends more on the style of set you prefer. The fact that the “Slave” encore is reduced to near-footnote status speaks to its greatness. If I’m giving a rating to this show it’s probably a 7.0, a notch above Bethel2 earned almost entirely on the basis of the second set. But seriously, ignore the number. The important part is that the second sets from Pine Knob and Blossom are the two best sets if 2011 IMO and would hold up in any era of Phish.

Cuyahoga: Review – Phish at Blossom [Cleveland Scene]

Post-breakup Phish are now in their second year of touring, and although they haven’t quite recaptured the magic they had during their mid-’90s heyday, they’re sounding much better than they did right before the five-year hiatus.

Their Cleveland show just needed a little more fine-tuning to get to that elite status, but at least Phish are headed in the right direction.

Covers: Notes on Phish Debuts Look Out, Cleveland and Instant Karma! [Hidden Track]

According to Across The Great Divide: The Band and America author Barney Hoskyns Look Out, Cleveland “was a sudden blast of urban menace in the sequence of rural story-songs” on the group’s self-titled sophomore effort. “Levon battered his drums, Richard hammered out some prime rock’n’roll piano, and Robbie – dare one say it – approached ferocity” Hoskyns continued. Keyboardist Page McConnell belted out the lead vocals originally sung by Rick Danko, while guitarist Trey Anastasio handled Levon Helm’s part.

Reviews: Phish is Back on the Menu []

You could tell these guys put some thought into the program. Before the show, roadies taped set lists around the stage, then replaced them moments later to reflect a last-minute revision.

This was Phish’s first Northeast Ohio appearance in a decade, and the second stop on a 29-date tour.

Cuyahoga Falls: Blossoming [Phish Thoughts]

Long known for playing anthemic Saturday night shows that cater to their more mainstream weekend audiences, Phish approached the first Saturday night of 2010 with a playful, self-referential twist. Connecting a sequence of “Saturday-Night” songs that were often characterized by formulaic jamming throughout 2009, Phish infused Blossom’s second set with their re-found intention, crafting an refreshing frame of forward looking improvisation.
