ooops. I meant... I did not hear the comments from trey and page... (not fishman) as anything other than vast appreciation of a great and attentive audience.
( ac Halloween night wingsuit set )

as I recall that night in ac people were rivited and listening as each note and lyric is new to the ears.... the audience reactions are yet unscripted. sometimes time and progression create these things.

as an example, Harry Hood evolved over time with the audience participations. it is organic and spontaneous. one cannot judge the wingsuit release by the lack of audience reaction or participation when listening to the live shows or watching a couch tour broadcast. if you listen to the wingsuit recording from ac Halloween, you wil hear the applause of enthusiasm at the conclusion of each new song.

also, I think it is important to note: couch tour cannot compare to being at the concert. I have tried couch tour of west coast shows on east coast time. I fell asleep each time. I would be unable to fall asleep at a phish concert in any time zone.
LOL.....awesome commentary and I cannot refute any of it. I didn't enjoy the set on Halloween, and I wanted to. Just thought it was......weirdness. But I love Phish for their weirdness and my experience certainly didn't dampen my enthusiasm for anything Phish related.

I will say I enjoyed the songs much more during this run as they were mixed in with everything else, which was my point.

Nothing is negative for me at this point with this band. They are the best, period. Even when the playing is very average, which it was on NYE. The second and third nights were clearly the best shows, musically. NYE was an EVENT, which was beautifully captured by @bertoletdown. 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.
