fhqwhgads I love going back to this tour, now that we've reached the 20th anniversary of the 8-Foot Fluorescent Tubes (which would become the Trey Anastasio Band.) The acoustic set is beautiful of course, with a particularly interesting version of Billy Breathes by Trey solo on piano, and several then-new songs on acoustic guitar. The electric set has plenty of energy as well as good song selection. I'd agree with the other reviewer that maybe nothing stands out too far, but the highlight for me is probably Mozambique. Trey isn't all that chatty during the acoustic part of the show (I think you can find other shows from this May '99 tour that feature more banter) but the dedication to Julia Butterfly Hill is touching and the insight into his and Tom's authorship of some of the other songs is nice.
