@skr213 u hit it right on the head with ur assessment of the Tahoe tweezer imo. I thought the bill graham Jim and Rock n Roll were definitely better. along with a few others. there was just a lack of cohesion in that tweezer. just cuz it's long as shit doesn't mean it's epic. and this is coming from someone who would do anything for 30+ min jams;
Well, you certainly have every right to believe that and no one can tell you otherwise. All I know is that I never thought they would ever again play a Tweezer that would come close to the orgasm of 2/28/03 (one of the compendium's all-time winners and my favorite piece of Phish ever), and yet the Tahoe Tweezer rivals it at every level.

I think there is a little bit of backlash going on here as many of us prefer the model of set-flow trumping long epic jams followed by a cool-down song, followed by another jam. I believe some of you are going out of your way to denigrate the Tweezer in order to fluff up some other moments of the tour that you believe are being neglected. That's a mistake, I think. You may indeed be in love with certain other moments of the tour, and even prefer them, but you cannot honestly deny the historical and musical significance of the Tahoe Tweezer without losing credibility.

Just saying.....and this is from a person who considered Gorge1 to be the best of the tour, which was flow-based. Let's keep things in perspective.
