|1998-04-02||Tube||Uniondale, NY||8:00||Island Tour opener. Mike's bass lines keep this funky jam fresh, while Page transitions from the clav to the organ and piano. Also includes a guitar breakdown.|
|1998-04-02||Stash||Uniondale, NY||19:24||The jam almost immediately breaks into exploratory ground that is unusual for this period. Following an ending section without vocals, the jam at 13:10 breaks into a gorgeous ambient jam (first of '98) with "Frankie Says" quotes.|
|1998-04-02||CDT||Uniondale, NY||10:47||Crazy set-closing version where Trey just keeps the jam going and going, and then he converses a bit with the audience during the conclusion.|
|1998-04-02||BOAF||Uniondale, NY||9:19||Debut has a crescendo-oriented jam that starts off relaxed and picks up punch.|
|1998-04-02||Sneakin' Sally||Uniondale, NY||12:39||-> in from "Wolfman's Brother." A heavy funk groove breaks out following the lyrical section with some great Fishman percussion. Great collective playing as the jam progresses and segues -> into "Frankie Says."|
|1998-04-02||Twist||Uniondale, NY||18:34||Exceptional, multi-section version. The jam breaks away from "Twist" at 6:30 into a serene and lush ambient soundscape. At 13:10, an effects-laden darkness overtakes and continues until a > to "Sleeping Monkey."|
|1998-04-03||Mike's||Uniondale, NY||13:47||Show opening "Mike's" has a funky, well played 1st jam with little touches of ambient sound. The 2nd jam kicks off with a dark and powerful tone that gradually mellows into quiet musing which warms in sentiment and -> "The Old Home Place."|
|1998-04-03||Weekapaug||Uniondale, NY||16:26||Arguably the funkiest "Weekapaug" ever, this one is essentially "Weekapaug -> Funk Jam -> Weekapaug." Teases of the song that would become "Mozambique," "C&P" (sung, not played!), "Nellie Kane," and "Brazil" are just gravy in this extraordinarily improvisational version of the Phish classic.|
|1998-04-03||Roses||Uniondale, NY||27:19||An incredible jam emerges out of "Roses" proper, opening Set II in a historic and highly regarded show. The improvisational jam combines dark sentiments, ambient sounds, major mode playing, and groove-based action. Must-hear version which > to a strong "Piper."|
|1998-04-03||Piper||Uniondale, NY||16:14||After a gorgeous building intro, this version is somewhat unique in that the jam follows the ending coda that was common in early versions of "Piper." The jam itself is restrained and contemplative, based somewhat on the ending coda.|
|1998-04-03||Loving Cup||Uniondale, NY||6:54||> in from "Piper." Sort of the icing in the cake which brings the incredible "Roses Are Free" > "Piper" jam to an upbeat and celebratory close, before launching into the comic "naked guy" madness which happens in the ensuing "Antelope."|
|1998-04-03||Antelope||Uniondale, NY||14:16||Fish says, "If you're gonna run up on the stage, just don't let Carini get you" in the intro. This prompts hilarious "Carini's gonna get you" harmonizing throughout the song. Intense straightforward version with Funky Mike in the "Rocco" section.|
|1999-10-07||Tube||Uniondale, NY||6:54||Wah-groove and clav early on and then Trey takes the lead while Page lays down layers on the organ.|
|1999-10-07||Mike's||Uniondale, NY||12:05||A cool and different single jam version, with Trey on the mini keyboard at first, while Page and Mike rock out. Trey jumps back on guitar around 6:30, laying down iconic and swirling '99 sounds. Things settle down, and the stretch after 10:00 features great ambient sound.|
|1999-10-07||McGrupp||Uniondale, NY||11:08||Trey gradually joins in with Page's serene and contemplative solo, offering his uniquely '99 tone in contrast to Page's classic piano musings. Sounding as though it may end in an uncharacteristically subdued manner, Page and Trey instead drive the playing out for another brief circuit, before closing in a more spirited and customary manner.|
|1999-10-07||Caspian||Uniondale, NY||11:10||Similar to other versions from this period, but Trey shreds the ending part of the jam like a madman here. > to "Golgi."|
|1999-10-07||Weekapaug||Uniondale, NY||11:36||The jam drops into a rhythmic groove right off the bat. While never far from home base, it's a different and cool version and well worth checking out.|
|1999-10-08||Halley's||Uniondale, NY||14:24||A propulsive and swirling jam develops with nice Page and Trey teaming. Eventually settles down into a quieter, serene, and cohesive mood.|
|1999-10-08||Tweezer||Uniondale, NY||19:57||Very long, spacey jam. Brief "Sand" tease.|
|2003-02-28||Gin||Uniondale, NY||20:45||Another incredibly exploratory '03 "Gin." Every bit as improvisational as 2/22/03, the jam has more of a melodic, flowing nature to it, and thus bears more resemblance to the versions from the late '90s, within the context of 2003.|
|2003-02-28||BOTT||Uniondale, NY||11:52||Fantastic "Type I" version with a crescendo-oriented jam. Arguably the standard against which all "Type I" "BOTTs" should be compared.|
|2003-02-28||Tweezer||Uniondale, NY||26:38||Magnificent. "Hose" 'em down. Hear it at all costs.|
|2003-02-28||Bowie||Uniondale, NY||18:31||Jam stays in familiar "Bowie" territory until 13:05 when it breaks away into some nice exploration.|
|2003-02-28||Hood||Uniondale, NY||14:30||Great version that just keeps building and building, up and up. A BIG exclamation point to end Set II of a historic show.|
|2003-11-28||Waves||Uniondale, NY||12:47||Long intro. Quite intense, jarring and distorted towards the ending.|
|2003-11-28||DwD||Uniondale, NY||16:44||Stays on the customary "Type I" jam for a good while before shifting to a rocking and rhythmic bent.|
