I guess it has always been this way but length doesnt always equal quality. Seems like as long as it is lengthy and type II its is automatically "epic". I disagree.Speaking as someone who worships the 7/16/13 Chalk Dust Torture and the 10/28/14 Twist and absolutely agrees with your thesis, I have to say that the two lengthy Type II jams from this show are as epic as epic gets.
Phish.net 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.
The Mockingbird Foundation is a non-profit organization founded by Phish fans in 1996 to generate charitable proceeds from the Phish community.
And since we're entirely volunteer – with no office, salaries, or paid staff – administrative costs are less than 2% of revenues! So far, we've distributed just about $1,500,000 to support music education for children – hundreds of grants in all 50 states, with more on the way.
