not since "A live One" has live phish sounded so powerful and energized. SS&P is great for showing an evolution in phish's playing style, but the song selection leaved something to be desired. with Hampton Comes Alive, we truely hear phish the way we were meant to. live, uncut, unedited, raw. there are great classics here as well as newer songs which gives these show a great balance. Musically all four of them are "on". it's a rare occassion when 4 very talented musicians can be so cohesive and create a flawless music. fortunately phish does this more often than most, and it was captured on these 6 magnificent cd's for our enjoyment. highlights- rift, stash, SOAM, bath, Jiggy (w/fish on vocals), BBFCM, Sabotage, Free>ha,ha,ha>Free.
