Live Phish - 4/5/98 Civic Center, Providence, RI (3 CDs)

Keeping with the "Island Tour" theme of amazing openers, this last stop begins with "Oh Kee Pah Ceremony" and lunges into "You Enjoy Myself," which sends the crowd into a frenzy. A unique first set houses the rare "McGrupp" and a funktastic "Bathtub Gin" into "Cities," rounded out with a ripping "SOAMelt." The outrageous second set utilizes some unheard of segues and jams to make sense of an apparently unplanned setlist that somehow merges "Maze -> Shafty -> Possum -> Cavern" into a coherent journey.

Set 1:
Oh Kee Pa Ceremony >
You Enjoy Myself
Theme from the Bottom
McGrupp and the Watchful Hosemasters
Bathtub Gin >
Split Open and Melt

Set 2:
Down with Disease ->
Ya Mar ->
Prince Caspian
Maze ->
Shafty* ->
Possum^ ->

E: Bold as Love#

Basically none of the songs in the second set were finished, all jammed out into some other song.
*First time played; shares most lyrics with "Oblivious Fool."
^With funked-out jam during which Trey said "This is for all those that came down wanting to dance" and "we're gonna funk it out".
^^Funky version; with Trey strutting around on stage during the heavy funk; includes older lyrics ("turned the blade back on the bitch, and dropped her in the dung").
#Apparently, they were under a lot of pressure to finish up the deadline/curfew, and even considered not playing an encore at all.
