Review by andrewrose

andrewrose Summer 99 is an underrated tour in my book. Maybe not the most even, but the band went deep often and to usually to great effect. It would be a stretch to say that this show was one of its highlights--you'll probably want to hear 7/8, 7/10 (released at Live Phish 8), 7/13, 7/15, 7/17-18 (Oswego), and 7/24 first--but it does boast maybe the best Mike's of the summer, if not the year. Clocks in around 18 minutes and goes well out of the usual (for the 97-00 era) Mike's jam sound early. They quote Sweet Emotion (with lyrics) towards the end of it as a wall of sound emerges, and then Trey's pulls off a pretty seamless segue into Twist. Nice stuff.
