Solid show, interesting set list--which is becoming Furthur's trademark. A little low on the energy scale at times, but hey it's their 3rd show in a row and 2nd in blistering heat. It was hot out there. Fortunately, security let me bring my jug of ice and spray bottle inside. I was in the 4th row of the terrace, sound was good there, but I had a few lame peeps sitting near me. One group of guys was smoking cigars and the couple in front of me didn't stop talking and texting..oh well.

First set Jones was my fav of the 4 sets I saw (Jones, Mann)

Great show. 1st set masterpiece, loser, last time, and Quinn were all total sing slings. Set 2 smoked. Shakedown off the hook. Jam into playin. Segue into help smoked. Franklin's rocked as did slipknot. Short show. Ending of set two nothing stellar, but 1st half rocked!

Great day / show experience. Quite possibly one of the weirdet occerrences ever at at a show. About 4'ish in the afternoon hanging out at our tents a 10 point buck came charging through the park. Two girls were sitting next to each other about 8 inches apart under the canopy next to us. The buck charged at full gate right between them, missing them by mere inches. Its hoof caught the arm of one their chairs and broke it. It went to turn between two cars and lost its footing on some flattend beer cases and went head first into an Acura parked there. It got up and jumped over the corner of the hood of the car and proceed at full trot down another isle right towards shakedown. The girls were shaken up but not hurt. Very lucky.

As for show . . . pretty happy considering the heat. Trouble gettign in the venue. The crowd was late and peaked at the gates right when the band came on. Didn't get in until Reubin and Cherise. Loser WAS the first set. Second set was hot. Shakedown was tight, The Playin, Help, Slipknot, Franklin run was phenominal. Bobby was as inspired on Death as I have seen in a long time. I am anxious to hear to the stream to see if it was as good as I thought at the show. Midnight is always a throw away for me. Fool in the rain sounded more like a Dead tune than a Zep tune. Real fun. OMSN another not so favorite (Just seen it to often) played well and lots of energy from the people around me.

One more thought. The ballon scene was disgusting. WTF People? I had a very reasonable conversation with a lady from Licenses and Inspection at the show. The reason they ran sweeps through Shakedown was that last year the ballons were so bad that they were instructed to shutdown everything this year. Once Mob ruled, shakedown lit up fine. Another sweep, shut'er down for a half hour then right back up. The folks selling ballons are not touring, they are not going to the shows, and could probably not name a member or tune this band we follow plays. The mess you all leave behind is so against what this whole scene trys to represent that we have become hippiecrits. The noise from the tanks is so overwhelming and annoying you can't even think. It's just disgusting.

As an opportunist myself, if I could walk away with 2500 or more cash for an hours worth of work I would do it so I can't blame the guys selling for making a buck. If the market disappears however so will they. You gotta stop buying from these clowns. There are people touring that can provide you with everything you need. Quit outsourcing and keep your money in the scene. Get rid of the tanks and 50 percent of the heat goes away. Balloons are the biggest embarrasment we offer.

Thanks for the shout-out, Straw. It was a 'smoker' of a show, lost 10 lbs and gained a world of memories. The band was 'on' from the first moments, everyone wavin' that left-handed monkey wrench! As locals do, we parked out back, no lines, no waiting, in through the outfield so to speak, this after some mean grillin' and chillin' before the show. Kudos to Eddies Haze and Leahhead and Willy Tee for stopping by on the way. Roll in peace, phriends. The couch tour continues tonight. It's a beautiful thing. Oh yeah, forgot to mention how much we enjoyed the 'new tune' break-out in the 2nd set. Very tightly played, sounded like a Brent song, John enjoyed singing it. And John wailed at this show, as did Jeff on the keys and Russo as well.

Am i the only one who was disappointed by this show? it was too hot.. lacked energy.. I've seen phish do Mighty Quinn for the first time this year and it blew away Furthur's version. Masterpiece vocals were weak. Shakedown wasn't anywhere near Jones beach version. Help>Frank was the highlight but they play this ALL the time...Death don't have no mercy killed all 2nd set energy, not that there was much to begin with. In the Midnight Hour is a terrible song. And oh yea one more Saturday... havent heard that one in awhile? really lame plus the heat just made for a crappy time SORRY. The boys better bring it tonight or I'm gunna stop burning all my cash on Furthur tickets 3 times a year........ BTW this was my 31st Furthur show.

Wow Cosmic & Pyramid, were we at the same show? It was near the best 1st Set I ever done seen, such incredible energy; yes it was beaucoup HOT but the band was feeding off that with sweat flying everywhere. The 2nd set was fun if not the 'greatest' but well played and cosmic at times, especially the Slipknot jam which is always fun to hear. The word 'awful' does not belong next to the description of this show!

(Give me that plenty of that guitar.)

But I've been traveling on a boat and a plane
In a car on a bike with a bus and a train
Traveling there, traveling here
Everywhere in every gear

But oh Lord we pay the price
With the spin of the wheel with the roll of the dice
Ah yeah you pay your fare
And if you don't know where you're going
Any road will take you there

And I've been traveling through the dirt and the grime
From the past to the future through the space and the time
Traveling deep beneath the waves
In watery grottoes and mountainous caves

But oh Lord we've got to fight
With the thoughts in the head with the dark and the light
No use to stop and stare
And if you don't know where you're going
Any road will take you there

You may not know where you came from
May not know who you are
May not have even wondered
How you got this far

I've been traveling on a wing and a prayer
By the skin of my teeth, by the breadth of a hair
Traveling where the four winds blow
With the sun on my face, in the ice and the snow

But oooeeee it's a game
Sometimes you're cool, sometimes you're lame
Ah yeah it's somewhere
And if you don't know where you're going
Any road will take you there

But oh Lord we pay the price
With the spin of the wheel with the roll of the dice
Ah yeah you pay your fare
And if you don't know where you're going
Any road will take you there

I keep traveling around the bend
There was no beginning, there is no end
It wasn't born and never dies
There are no edges, there is no sides

Oh yeah you just don't win
It's so far out, the way out is in
Bow to God and call him Sir
But if you don't know where you're going
Any road will take you there
And if you don't know where you're going
Any road will take you there
If you don't know where you're going
Any road will take you there

(Yeah hey! Ah ee ah! Ah he ah!)

Late notes:

Rockin' first set, esp. opening and closing. Sittin' > Greatest smoked! (I knew enough to beat the crowd inside). Very slow Masterpiece. Last Time and Quinn rocked the house.

Incredible Shakedown. Best I've ever seen/heard Furthur do. Blew away Jones Beach (I was there). Huge Phil bombs to open it, and both the middle solo and the jam just kept rising in intensity; wow. Women was very fun, too.

Any Road sounded horrible in the Phil Zone: sounded like Phil was completely turned off... no bass at all; vocal mic problems too. And I love the song. Missed opportunity.

Big-time recovery for Playing, which was appropriately exploratory. The transition into Help was simply amazing; I called it about 2 minutes before they got there. Everyone's gotta hear this! It just kept building and building, Phil directing traffic, and BOOM! Rest of Help Frank was awesome. Death (for Oslo? For Amy?) was very intense; excellent JK (and JC) solos.

Midnight Hour was one of the worst things I've ever heard them do. Extremely sloppy and aborted. Just outta gas, I think.

Excellent encore!

Pretty lousy show - both of last years Mann shows were 10 times better - I blame it on the heat

The heat makes a lot of people cranky (self included). My brother and I were upstairs in the balcony and it was probably 10 degrees hotter (for an already hot day). My alternator quit on the way to the show. I coasted in with a push through the intersection. So, no AC on the way to the show, long unorganized mobs to get in, they made me pour out my water, missed the first 3.5 songs and I was sweating like I was digging a ditch in the hot Georgia sun. However, I tried to reset my attitude and really enjoyed the second half of the show (up until Franklin's) when I had to leave to go attend to my car. Find the good in things! Last time and Mighty Quinn were fun! The balcony was litterly shaking durring Shakedown! Peace!

Fool in the Rain was awesome! Because of the heat - most people int he area where I was sitting were sitting for most of the show, but when Fool started, the energy of the crowd seemed to grow more than at any point in the show (maybe we were all just excited not to hear OMSN). I love any and all cover songs - so for me, this show was stellar - another Beatles (Lucy or Tomorrow Never Knows, or how about Helter Skelter) and maybe a Floyd (How about Echoes, Careful with that Axe, or If) would have been perfection.

They were a lot tighter on security this year than last - causing a ridiculously long wait to get in.

With this kind of heat, they should not have been limiting the number of waters you could bring in to 2.

I love this band.

A really good show with a few great moments, but it was certainly hampered by the excessive heat. Got a really good seat in row Q in the middle section of A Friday night during the ticket dump so that improved my outlook for the show considerably. I was supposed to be up in the balcony with my brother, he didnít want to risk losing money on the resale and he was curious as to what it was like up there (I said ďyou can always just go up there to find outĒ) so he didnít go for the better seats. I sold my balcony seat to a friend who ended up dead center 10th row all night, and my brother said that it was actually okay upstairs sound and view wise, just a bit hotter. He ended up in one of the box seats because there were so few people in them. Security once inside seemed pretty mellow, but it was a cluster fuck getting in and I had a few friends that missed the beginning. It was a breeze last year, but in retrospect the shows last year stand out as the best I've seen these guys do. Something was different this year all around, and it wasn't just the heat.

Sittiníon Top was a very high energy start and even had a nice little jam tagged on to the end, but the humidity was obviously going to be a problem with the sound all night. Not really muddy but not really clear either, from my seat (about 22nd row in front of Jeff) it should have been clearer. It got better over the course of the night but never to where it should have been.

Greatest Story continued the high energy and also had a great jam included, just what I was always hoping the GD would do with it after they brought it back out in the early 80ís but never did. Very nice. Being a bluegrass player I always enjoy High on a Mountain and Iíve noticed that they always seem to play it in the Philly area (Reading, Tower, Mann) which I take as a nod to Ola Belle (who lived right down the road near Oxford). A really good version. Masterpiece was so slow that I first thought it was Brokedown Palace, but they made the slow tempo work and it was a strong version. I always like the inclusion of the gondola bridge as well, nicely done. Reuben and Cherise was a highlight for me, always love hearing that song, but 60 seconds in some wook comes stumbling up the aisle (I had an aisle seat), bends over, and proceeds to puke on the steps about 5 feet in front of me. Not a lot, but enough. Then he makes a beeline down my aisle to an empty seat. I spend the rest of the song trying to make sure dancers, barefoot and otherwise, donít step in it but have to give up after the crowd rush in the aisle that came with the first notes of Loser. Watching those bare feel trample that puke was both disturbing and funny at the same time, and a great reminder as to why I never go barefoot at a show. Loser smoked, a great version and arguably the high light of the first set. Last Time and Quinn were both well played and fun but not a great set closing combo IMO, they could have gone with some stronger material there and it would have made a big difference. But it was a fun set, the heat wasnít bothering me as much as I thought it would, and the sound was getting better.

Spent the break visiting and stocking up on water, met NYMike before the show and chatted with him a bit (nice to meet you Mike), checked in with my brother and got back to my seat to rest up for the second set.

I called Shakedown, it seemed an obvious choice, and it was a great version with a lot of extended jamming that just kept building in energy. A great start. But Women R Smarter, though well played, was just filler to me, one of those songs I could live without ever hearing again. I really enjoyed Any Road although as someone else mentioned it wasnít very tight, probably the worst played tune of the night (contending with Midnight Hour) but it wasnít a train wreck and the words are great, classic George. Then we got the meat of the show. Playiní was really well done with lots of exploratory jamming that eventually built to a great transition to Help on the Way. Iím with those who think that Help is being a bit overplayed by these guys but they killed this one, tight, high energy and psychedelic. Slipknot was outrageous, Franklinís rocked, and a fantastic reprise back into Playiní. It felt like 1977 all over again, just a brilliant combo played to the hilt and the obvious highlite of the show.

But I felt that they really dropped the ball by going into Death Donít, it was played exceptionally well but took the energy in a radically different direction then where I wanted to go (Dew, Unbroken, Dark Star, etc.). Bob sang the hell out of it and Jeff and John both played great but it just brought the energy down in a visceral way for me and the show never recovered. Midnight Hour seemed like a tack on after that and it was obvious that they were losing energy on stage, understandable given the conditions. I took the encores in form the side, Iím not a Zep fan (to put it mildly) so Fool in the Rain didnít do much for me but they played it great and it had a nice little jam in it, and then the obligatory OMSN to close things out.

All in all a really fun show for me, the heat was uncomfortable but never a huge issue (but I had a few friends that hated this night because of it, completely ruined their show), some great moments but, for me, some lost opportunities as well. Both sets ended weaker than they could have and the sound, even up close, never got really dialed in. Considering the oppressive conditions I think we go about as good as we could expect. This continues to be a fun band that occasionally, but not on this night, can take you all the way there.

Nice, Tom. I'm with you brother. You nailed it. Yet I wouldn't have missed it for the world!
