ThatPhan True the lot was not a fun place to be, very much a police presence. But I must reederate, this show is nothing to look past, or put in a catagory of, worst show. Number 1, the worst Phish show I ever seen, was still pretty darn good.

First set was really good set, and of course the Julius opener, in its rarity now as an opener, followed by Fee, and the nearly 15 min jam they put with that. Its as good as a start to any show Ive seen. It just set the pace for the entire show in my opinion.

And what can you say about the second set. One of the best BOAF out there. Page and Trey's interplay on Jesus Left Chicago works well, and lays down that bluesy feel. And to get a late set Tube-> and Simple closer, just phenomonal. I think this show, is more consistant than the previous years show(was at both) its just the encore from 98 makes pholks think the show was as good as that encore. From start to stop, I'll take this show over 98, anyday.

Over all a really good, high quality show, with no true low points, a show worth having, and puting in the rotation. There were alot of good summer 99 shows, and this is def one of them.

I give this show a solid 4.0
