Phish shared pro-shot video of their recent milestone performance of “Carini.” The 25-minute excursion took place on Friday, July 30 at Oak Mountain Amphitheatre in Pelham, Alabama.

The Oak Mountain “Carini” came out of Phish’s second set opener, “Evening Song.” The historic 25-minute performance marked the longest version of “Carini” to date since its debut on February 17, 1997.

Read an excerpt from JamBase's coverage of the Alabama concert below:

The heavy crunch of “Carini” was a springboard for a dark and twisting jam that lightened as it developed and sequenced through different melodic passages. Page employed a variety of synths, layering in swirling textures while the others coalesced around a consistent rhythmic foundation. The groupthink jamming continued with little to no soloing as the four weaved sonically together for several minutes. Trey eventually cut through with an assertive, melodic line that ushered in a lively increase in tempo and energy as he took charge and began rapid-firing notes from his guitar.
