andrewrose Good stuff @Icculus, especially with the injection of a little recent Phishstory and those jam highlights from 09-11. While I'd argue that Summer 2012 has so far been the most consistent tour of 3.0, I'd also suggest that the one thing it's lacked is a single jam or two that really rival some of the one's you mention (8/7/09 Sally, 11/28/09 Seven Below-> Ghost, 6/3/11 Dick's).

Now my two cents: I feel Sand is getting the short shrift a bit here. I disagree considerably with the 6/8 Sand being average. It's short, no doubt about it ... but it's one of the first times I heard the band open up the song in a way that gave them a lot of room to move, rather suddenly, and it set the tone for a tour of strong versions. Trey plays with a ton of effortless dexterity, it's groovy, fun, and the segue into Nellie Kane is A+. I also think the 7/3 version takes it a step further, and I'd give the tour highlight to the 7/3 Sand> Golden Age combo. I only caught 6/7 and 6/8, but I've heard the whole tour, and my vote for best show overall is 7/3 (great Antelope!) is a non-commercial project run by Phish fans and for Phish fans under the auspices of the all-volunteer, non-profit Mockingbird Foundation.

This project serves to compile, preserve, and protect encyclopedic information about Phish and their music.
