The_Optimistic_Vet Oswego is much higher on my list than yours. If those shows were played today, people would be freaking out and calling them
Instant Classics. A few other points:

The only festival with a side stage with Ozo, The Slip, Del McCoury, Son Seals and so many more. Also, anyone who was there knows the Jim>Free had a sunset for the ages. Can’t listen to that version without feeling the tension and relief of the amazing red, orange, yellow sunset finally falling.

If the reviews are about the music only, this festival far exceeds most. A lack of a LP release also kills these shows. Summer 1999 altogether.

These shows had it all: special guests, all time great jams that still hold, silliness and craziness, rarities and a variety of song selection. 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.
