fhqwhgads I'm infatuated with the Island Tour. It's such a concentrated dose of Phish par excellence. Tube carries over some of the sireny space-funk of the previous Fall, not yet quite developed into the endemic "ambient jamming" of Summer and Fall '98. This Stash "rages," as the kids say, but is only nearly relentless when you factor in the reflective 4-5 final minutes. Echoes of 12/30/97 in the segue from Wolfman's -> Sneakin' Sally, and Sally swings funkily. The Twist is a truly great jam, perhaps overshadowed by the 4/3 Roses Are Free from the same run, but at any rate a precious improvisational masterpiece the type of which Phish delivers in spades.


Phish.net 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.
