Hey y’all. If you dig Phil and Friends – this show is a must listen. Summer tour 2001 was one of the hottest tours that ‘the Q’ (the long-lasting Phil Lesh quintet featuring Lesh, Molo, Haynes, Herring, and Baracco) ever did. The band could not be tighter – seamlessly bouncing between complex composed sections into jazzy explorations, psychedelic transitions, straight rock, and everything in between. The second set reads like a DeadHead fantasy setlist and includes a St. Stephen>Eyes>St. Stephen>Help>Eleven>Slip>Franklin’s Tower segment that is out of this world.
For all of you lucky enough to witness this magical evening, as Bobby would say: dig yourselves.
