Review by MiguelSanchez

MiguelSanchez this was my first taste of phish in nashvill/antioch. i attended the show here the next summer. this one gave me a good taste of what i was in for. between this show and the 2000 one, i shall never miss another one in this city or at this venue.

pyite: they came out hot on this one. pyite in 99 seemed to be very deep and funky. they kept playing it and we couldn't get enough of it.

billy breathes: they were slowing it down a little early for my tastes, but they sounded good none the less

guyute: killer guyute. they nailed this bad boy.

wolfman's brother: here is where this one got good. jerry douglas on the dobro for this song made a world of difference. jerry is a wizard and his talents were really on display on this wolfman's. it really got the crowd rocking. we all had a feeling we may be in for something different on this night.

beauty of my dreams: this is one of my favorite phish blue grass covers. douglas stayed on stage and the addition of ronnie mccoury and tim o' brien didn't hurt.

doin' my time: this is one of my favorite blue grass songs and phish's take did not disappoint. sure, it was no flatt and scruggs but hey... o' briend sounded good on vocals too.

roggae: this is easily my favorite roggae, not saying much i guess. the blue grass guys really added a nice inflection on this one. good take.

water in the sky: more blue grassy goodness, but this was a nod at the storm that was looming/arriving.

gbott: unfortunately, i saw this song a whole shit of load times in the summer of 99, and i have to hear the best version of the summer right off the bat. this one killed. like wolfman's, douglas on the dobro did a good song wonders.

poor heart: best poor heart ever! every muscian took a solo, and they all sounded wonderful. unfortunately, this was the last we would see of the blue grass guys tonight.... they weren't really missed that much with the killer set forthcoming

set 2

down with disease: this one is huge. it is one of the few times i have seen them bring a 2nd set dwd back home to the ending without putting something in the middle. with the rain killing us, even making its way into our cush pavillion seats. they took this one really deep and it got a little spacey, but then they started to pull it up. i was wondering wherer they were going to take this one next before they turned it around and closed out with the normal dwd ending before crashing down into

prince caspian: normally, along with bug, i despise this song. on this night, after such a monster dwd, who can complain. a nice page solo at the end led into...

yem: this might be the best yem i have seen. it was nice and long with tons of exploration. gordo and fish were in a nice groove and trey and page put some really hot licks on top of that groove. they seemed to be in sync with the storm, and the jam was just awe inspiring


character zero: this one really seemed out of place. not a fan of this pick.


set 1:
wolfman's brother, doin' my time, poor heart, guyute

set 2:
dwd, yem


due to the heavy storm, phish had to play a short second set, but i don't think i heard a single person complain after this show. even with hating 1/3 of the songs they played in that set, i still rate as one of the best i saw in 99. not to mention, this and the first night of deer creek are a toss up for the best 1st set all saw in 99. the wolfman's and down with disease are must hear!

Review by Bob_Loblaw

Bob_Loblaw Great first set to this show. Great sit in with Jerry, Ronnie, and Tim. Who knew Wolfman's Brother & Roggae would work so well with those instruments? All of the playing complemented the songs nicely. Further expanding what they could do with songs outside of extended jams.

Set two has another stormy Down With Disease that just shreds. The same can be said with YEM. You can tell it was a stormy summer night and the boys as usual were not afraid of a little thunder. Solid show all around. I will spin it again.
