After a brief post-lyrics cowfunk drop, this one is a nonstop free-flowing hose of howling victory rock leads. Vulcan mind-meld between Trey and Fishman straight through the peak, never fails to astound. The kind of jam you restart if interrupted.

Only started seeing phish in 09. But have seen them 30 times. And this is the best improv jam I have heard them do.

extra slow version. "You're on the back of the worm!" Very patient, moody, spacey. Trey playing with effects and loops over the band jamming mellowly.

Fantastic slow funk under a beautiful Maine sky segues into a nasty Llama

Incredibly funky jam. Up there for best of 3.0 with the much more recent version from Philly.

The jam soars beyond "Cities" into some rhythmic, exploratory, and gorgeous territory.
