metawhy This is one of the strongest shows on one of the strongest Phish tours ever, fall of 1999.

The first set is full of gems, like a Llama with a raging jam, a funky, powerful Wolfman's and an oddity like Quinn the Eskimo.

But set II is where it get sublime. The Tweezer melts in slow motion funk into Page's cover of On Your Way Down, with was a bust out and sung beautifully. The Piper that follows just might be THE PIPER of 1999 although 12/8/99 and 7/18/99 are both great also. This song just turned into this dervish like energy vortex that just raged for decades of time.

Also, it doesn't hurt that an amazing FOB recording circulates.
Score: 6
