Review by metawhy

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.

Review by Bob_Loblaw

Bob_Loblaw This show kicks absolute butt!

It really does have everything. Good Banter (end of SOAM), Jams (SOAM, Tweezer, Piper, YEM). Great segues (Piper>YEM).

Llama kicks things off hot as usual. Wolfman is strong and has some nice light jamming towards the end. Quinn is a very strong inspired version. Roggae is very powerful and is another great addition from a year full of them. SOAMs jam starts off with a nice loop intro into some nice Ambient jamming and shredding over by Trey, and the extended ending and banter is definitely fun.

Tweezer kicks the second set off much to anybodies excitement. The jam starts with a mellow groove and gradually speeds up, but mostly stays the same throughout. Now for Piper.....And this is what I would call a all timer. This is not your stereotypical slow build Piper from this Era. It speeds up very early, you can tell they mean business from the start. It then goes to light-speed headed by Trey lighting up his fret board. Meanwhile Fish is beating the crap out of the drums, it's pure chaos in the best possible way. Then the loops kick in and it morphs into intergalactic floating madness with Mike holding things down. It then churns and simmers into YEM. YEM has a very infectious dance section and a notable vocal jam this is actually pretty good.

While My Guitar Gently Weeps is a very strong version with a killer solo by Trey.

Overall this show has about everything I want in a show. I love it.
