Review by Palmer

Palmer Best show of 99 that i was attending this year. Philly was really off the chain and the crowd was wondering what the follow up show would produce. It's almost Christmas and the fans are hoping for some early presents. SET ONE- Hood, OMFG! A Harry Hood Opener, kept everyone in awe and asking themselves what is tonight going to bring to the table, Mikes > Simple > Hydrogen. The show could end now and I would be pleased, I was tired from hitting shows in the 99 Fall-Winter run but this was well determined to be one of the best Phish shows of the year. Circus, Scent of a mule and cavern kept the energy strong and it really transformed Set One into something special. Very good flow for these songs throughout Set One.
SET TWO- Boogie > Sneaking Sally, Breathtaking energy and well played, This is the year of Mike. He continues to empress both with his sense of style and well played rhythm. Ghost > 2001. I enjoyed these versions much more that I got in Albany October, this was nothing short of a dance off. The crowd responded with dancing the hell out of the music and Phish was really on track of continuing this scene. Disease to end the show, ENERGY TIMES ENERGY= PHISH to the 2nd POWER. Encore_ Another Gordo song, Possum. Wow! Like noted before, one of the best shows of 99 IMO.
