funny, i had a similar experience in '97. saw phish blow everyones' heads off on a thursday evening, then saw WSP in the same venue two nights later....it was like watching a "starter kit" jamband by comparison. personally, i admittedly had great times seeing WSP when they were still playing clubs & didn't have any delusions of grandeur. once they started playing the big venues 'tho, it's like they started "acting" like a jamband but didn't have the goods to pull it off. the way their songs are constructed just aren't jam-friendly IMO....hell, when jimmy herring joined, i thought things might change for the better, but even HE seems stuck in a rut when soloing within their framework, and i KNOW he's more than capable of delivering the goods. oh well, i do like those first three studio albums 'tho...

LOL at the down votes for someone saying they like a song. Also can't believe this hasn't escalated 10 pages by now
