Very nice write-up. I really appreciate the effort that into this. There is some very insightful views that should be taken into serious consideration by all the listeners out there.

Also, it bears repeating:

"Recall that in 2012, the band seemed hell bent early on to perform at least 200 of its vast arsenal of original and cover songs, yielding such bustouts as "Skin It Back," "Sweet Jane" and "Emotional Rescue." But there are two sides to every coin, and while some fans may grouse at repeats, I for one would rather hear the band flawlessly execute a smaller array of these types of rarities than deliver wobbly renditions in pursuit of some magical number."

I'm a quality over quantity man myself. There are so many potential songs. When you sit back and think about all of the songs that are in a "regular" rotation and the songs that are in a not-so-regular rotation but could be played and the relative complexity of a lot of those songs, it is absolutely astonishing what the band pulls off.
I made the same point during the thread on repeats. Agree totally. Playing a song just to say you played doesn't accomplish much.

Outstanding review. Really gave some excellent history and perspective on the entire show. Fantastic job. is a non-commercial project run by Phish fans and for Phish fans under the auspices of the all-volunteer, non-profit Mockingbird Foundation.

This project serves to compile, preserve, and protect encyclopedic information about Phish and their music.
