So...... was this the best show of 2010 so far?

Yes!  :beerbang:

is this the best Reba of 3.0 so far?....

I think the JB version is better.

i must give another listen
We are all and we are all we are
Far flung bits of Sun and bits of Stars
From the  ocean from the land from the
beginning to end
Backwards forwards back toward
we belong

HOLY SHIT!!!!!

ok yeah i suck at phish. so i listened to this show before and really liked it, but the shit that was gettin me the most was all the love for light.  I wasnt seeing it.  It only took me till now to find why this shit is so phat.

Everyone does awesome though the chorus then it seems to go to chaotic  :crazy:  and for the first time in a while trey stepped up and took everyone mellow right before 830.  awesomely relaxed trey, not to mention everyone else.  Then at 935 min i start getting real interested.  Mike starts dropping those "dirtty bubble" bombs for a little. but trey keeps shit mellow :clap: its an awesome little theme hes got going there.  But then when i got to 1150 my mind starts getting twisted with awesome, and right at 1200 exactlly with mikes bombs and pages paser work actually in sync with trey and fish.  It felt like a bucket of awesome just got poured on me.  And its like that for the rest.  Why did it take me so long to get here?

nothing like drunk listening > drunk paugin.
It's like BJ Galore over here!


I use records for that and don't have to justify it to my friends.

wwoooooohhhooooo!!!!!!!!  Listening back to this second set this morning is getting me SUUUPPPERRRRR excited for phall!!!

If they can play at a consistently high level like this, I will be very pleased.

This Theme is GREAT imo, Trey is throwing in some ser thematic lines -- the lines he plays from 5:10-5:15 on the SBD gives me chills!

Great theme indeed! I love this song so much - and it's one of those tunes that I've been judging the band's progress by. Apparently it ain't easy to make them sound like they used to...this one comes close!
Just two whiskies, officer.

I'm not sure if I followed this thread correctly, but what guys are saying is that Dave Thomas sold crack in inner-city DC in the mid-80's, right?

Today I realized that both of my favorite 3.0 summer shows took place on August 7th. The Gorge Sally jam is still my favorite jam from '09, and the second half of the Greek Light is the best thing I've heard from '10. I'm looking forward to 08/07/11, apparently.

Maybe still true? Hard to say....

I do know that I listened back to this Light today and man, not sure if was nostalgia or what but this jam was outstanding.

Trey sounded....pretty... pretty good... they all did. They sounded... dare I say.... younger?!

Musically, these shows were very good...I think every night of the Baker's Dozen last summer is better than any night of this run, but whatever. Experiencing the Greek for 3 nights was beyond special. One of my overall favorite runs, for sure. Impossible to ignore how amazing every night of this run FELT in person.
I've been coming to where I am from the get go
Find that I can groove with the beat when I let go
So put your worries on hold
Get up and groove with the rhythm in your soul

yes, this was an incredible three nights. i wish they'd come back to the Greek sometime. and i agree about that Light, it still sounds great.
