Review by Mikesgroover

Mikesgroover My most distinct memory of this show is the wind howling on the lawn and the fact that a bunch of people in my group took some fake MDMA that made them feel absolutely awful both during and after the show. Upon relisten, there's few notable musical high points.

Six of the eight songs in the first set were two years old or less at the time, which may help explain the truncated versions. The second-ever Phish version of First Tube feels rushed. What’s the Use is nice as a standalone instrumental, but that song is always more powerful when it emerges from a deep, dark jam. Will it Go Round in Circles was only played twice by Phish – one of those TAB songs that never quite found a comfortably place in the Phish canon.

Disease opens the second set in promising fashion, with Trey driving the band into a high-speed frenzy at about the 11 minute mark. The pace is sustained into the reprise, with this standalone 13+ minute version ending on an energetic note.
After a short Moma Dance, we get Piper that ends abruptly. Too abruptly.

Fee was rare enough to get people excited, and has a nice ambient extension in the outro, with Trey repeating the same notes over and over again (a style we’d see throughout Fall 99).
The debut of Jibboo is completely straightforward, but I Saw it Again is dark and creepy. Melt meanders much more softly and gently. Other than the long intro, the Bowie is pleasant but not memorable.

Disease and Saw it Again or worth a listen, but this show is mostly the band slowly finding their way into the fall 99 style of ambient jamming, for better or worse.
