andrewroseSummer 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.
Score: 3
