Tmbgnicu The recent box set release brought this show back onto my radar. The Halley's jam is simply sublime, absolute peak Phish. The jam never relents, it progresses and progresses. It's been written that this jam is the beginning of the Island Tour sound, space funk. I would argue that it truly started during the 2nd set of 11-17-97, but on this night, Halley's refined the sound that would develop over the next few weeks and months. It's truly a high watermark for the band. And the followup? >Tweezer->Black Eyed Katy, Piper>Antelope. It may not be the best show ever, but it belongs on the list.
