n00b100 IMO, there seems to be a bit of a disconnect with what @ucpete brought up (and I obviously agree 10/31/14 and FTW are major milestones in 3.0, I'd be a moron if I didn't) and what me and Funky were sort of getting at, in that 2009/10/early 11, for the many treasures they contain (and they absolutely contain treasures, I'd think only the most jaded-ass vet doesn't think this is the case), wasn't quite what *we* consider Phish yet, but more the members of Phish trying to recapture what it was that marked the band in their peak years and sort of fumbling their way towards it like when the lights in a room get turned off and your eyes need to reacclimate. And that's what the Storage Jam was, to me (and, presumably, Funky) - the band finally having hit that reacclimation, and returning to the status of the band we knew and loved. Yes, absolutely, the quality of Phish's tours has improved mightily since 10/31/14. But my and Funky's argument is that it took the Storage Jam to put the band on the trajectory to *get there*, and that is why the Storage Jam constitutes 3.0's major turning point. Shrug.

For the record, in case anybody has never read that Bill Evans essay in the Kind of Blue liner notes, it's here: https://www.sfjazz.org/onthecorner/bill-evans-kind-blue-liner-notes/
