TweezingSpaceRanger Arguably, the top 3 moments of 3.0 Phish were Dick's 2012 itself, Magnaball, and the Baker's Dozen. Similarly to 2015, when Dick's had to follow up Magnaball, Dick's now had to follow up the Baker's Dozen. Both Dick's runs are highly underrated as a result. I'm not trying to say that the first 2 nights of Dick's in 2015 and the last two nights of Dick's in 2017 are some of the best shows in 3.0. But they should definitely be in the 4.1-4.3 range and are worth checking out. IMO the 2017 Dick's run is better than 2015. Mainly because of 9/1/17. This show is right up there with the Fuck Your Face night as the best Dick's show. The first set highlights include a fantastic Blaze On opener, extended Breath and Burning, a space-funk version of Free, incredibly unique and exploratory Tube that shifts from funk to bliss and loses itself in space before Trey subtly brings the funk back, and, of course, a beautiful Roggae. The second set is something you have to hear for yourself to believe. NMINML> Carini> Ghost is over an hour of must hear improv. I can barely think of a better first hour of a set in 3.0 from a jamming perspective besides jam night from the BD or Randall's Island night 3. The band had a little trouble coming back to earth in Harry Hood, but it didn't take anything away from the absurd energy of the crowd. For the Phish nerds out there, it's the only 5 song set of Dick's and only the 5th 5 song set of 3.0.
