Review by montaigne

montaigne We stashed our stashes in a locker at the greyhound bus station in Buffalo. We headed to the venue empty. My friend managed to find a sack after much searching.

Sloth was a rare, nice treat.

This was a good show, but after the AWESOMENESS of Oswego, any show would have seemed lackluster. I cannot comprehend, for the life of me, why I read so many negative reviews of Oswego. 7-17-99 might be one of the best 2-set shows Phish has ever played (for setlist awesomeness and jamming!!! It really all came together).

We crossed back into Buffalo to get our supplies. I tried my key in the locker, but it wouldn't open. A police officer came up to me and asked if I needed help. I told him I think I owed money on the locker. He walked me down a narrow hallway to a tiny room with a desk and a man behind it. I gave the man two dollars, and the police officer escorted me back to the locker. Needless to say, I'm a bit nervous about the whole goddamn thing at this point. The officer opened up the locker, and I grabed a cooler. I could HEAR glass clinking together inside the cooler, but it must not have aroused any suspicion in the mind of the law. I walked out quickly, got in the car where my buds were waiting, and we got the phuck out of Buffalo!

I miss touring.
I miss the funk.
It's still good to be alive though.

waxbanks The boys sure put on strong shows in Toronto, huh? The show highlight might be the jumbo Ghost in the first set, which wades patiently through standard low-key Phish funk (maybe a little more fleet than usual?) before building up a head of steam and topping out in a roaring late-century Phish climax that's no less affecting for being familiar to every Phish fan. The YEM jam is mostly three-way porno-funk, with Trey hanging out in relaxed fashion atop the wah pedal. When Page hops from the clav/Rhodes to the acoustic piano Trey starts to get freaky and his bandmates are happy to join him; the result is standard-wonderful YEM material, even if it ends without any old-school 'hose' (or a bass/drums jam!). The nightly setlist oddity is the Zep cover: exhilarating, but (to be mercilessly frank) you can safely bypass it in favour of Phish's thematically-similar 11/27/09 cover of Golden Age (by Brooklyn style-nerds TV on the Radio). The rest of the second set is tremendously engaging (and engaged) stuff though, particularly the multifaceted Twist > Moma pairing. Check out Trey's gleeful impatience at the opening of 2001 too!

What I've heard of Oswego doesn't flip my lid, but there's some phenomenal Summer '99 stuff out there - start with the next night's Simple > Toe > Caspian if you need convincing. On the other hand, why would you need convincing?

Review by Bob_Loblaw

Bob_Loblaw This show is what I would at this point call a "1999 Standard show" now while the word "Standard" may come off as boring or not at a high level of entertainment, this show still delivers goods.

Chalkdust does what it needs to when it opens, pumps energy into the audience like the energizer bunny. An interest note is the following Sample In The Jar. Do not sleep on this version because the solo will tear your face off, I love Sample Solo's and this one is up there for me. A S1 Ghost Jam is always welcome and although this one treads on familiar territory it concludes with a high peak. The YEM is slightly above average, but the vocal jam is very fun with a nice latin groove.

Twist kicks off S2 and veers off for just a little bit into some interesting experimentation. You get the typical Moma & WTU you would expect from this tour. Another interesting occurrence is Train Song mid 2nd set, it actually works. See? The guys know what they're doing!!! Misty Mountain hop debuts at the very end of the set and actually stretches out for a while. The boys give it the standared end of set treatment with a nice peak.

Encore? Well you get the same Guyute you've have gotten all tour and a bonus A Capella.

A middle of the road show. Will you hate it? No. Will you have it on repeat for years to come? Not likely.

Review by TanasRoot

TanasRoot We found unbelievable Canadian dank in the lot for this one so what matters most is we saw a Jawa walking around the lawn in the 1st set, and during the 2nd there was a Konica rainbow (google it) neon sign out by the freeway you could see from the lawn and during 2001 the Kuroda lights were working all too perfect with it. :)

it may seem obvious but its worth saying the place went absolutely apeshit for Misty Mountain too!
