So this is 2009 and I'll tell you why I like this. I like the eye contact that is happening from the start to around 0:43, and then the camera pans away to Mike, and when we come back to Trey he is well behind the mike soloing with carefree abandon. True, it is Heavy Things, but it is Trey soloing with abandon. I like that he is out front, and the band is chasing him, rather than the other way around. At 2:48 you get as pure a note from Trey as you will get in this era, and he comes back to it at 3:15, 3:19, and 3:23 (I am not in front of a piano at the moment to give you the note, and to figure it out would take away the magic from it anyhow).

For me this is the best Heavy Things ever played, better than Atlantic City a couple of years later, and a reason why there is joy to be found in the "Heavy Things" of 3.0 where no joy is to be found in the longer songs we've all come to love and know. 
Dysfunction and itemized lists of people’s failures are where it’s at.

That was great.

Heavy Things is one of the only songs that is better in 3.0 than any other era, imo.
Phish makes me happy.  It's as simple as that.

The last few I have seen, he doesn't solo anymore, instead leaving the solo to Page (iirc).

I think they both have been taking solos on recent versions (iirc) -- Page first, then Trey.

I like that Page has been tossed a solo in a few different places in 3.0 -- It's cool when he takes a solo on Possum as well, spice it up a bit!

Oh! That! No, no, no, you're not ready to step into The Court of the Crimson King. At this stage in your training an album like that could turn you into an evil scientist.

Remember this gem?

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

In honor of the Ides of March... Perhaps phish's finest tv appearance.

I watch/listen to that jam frequently.  It's one of my all-time favorites.
