KingDisco Some disjointed thoughts from me rewatching the morning after...

It's historic because phish wanted it to be. It was a rare moment because phish wanted it to be.

We could all dork out on a definitive history of phish and the dead and how they have seen each other. In fact from the first known recording through terrapin through bittersweet motel clip through ftw and last night you can learn a lot about how bands care so deeply about image and legacy. Don't believe the opposite.

If bobby jumped in once a year than this was just another show where the new album gets the musical attention and type 2 doesn't quite take off at any point.

I feel like this is the dream show of a 3.0 fluffer and a new fan begging to be present at one of "those" shows. Could this be the end of ratings? How do you rate a musically choppy show with unquantifiable historical significance ?

For all the claims of once in a career, does this rank above phils sit in? Bobby's first one? Billy's? Is that how we must compare this show?

Phish future. Best year since 2.0 in 2015 come by all accounts to a screeching halt in 2016. Is this Halloween going to be the talking heads moment? I mean the band takes a peak moment of their career to completely change course eventually ending up like we did in 1997?
