Xpanding_Man The week this came out in Summer 2012, the band was doing a live stream from somewhere and they were having an average night by 2012 standards (which places it below average in the overarch of their careers obviously, but an average night of Phish in 2012 is still one of the best places to be on the planet).

Right after the first set, an advertisement for this box set came on, and threw the preceding set of music into very sharp relief. It's just not a fair comparison - a run-of-the-mill show in 2012 against this monster? No contest.

The first set is no slouch, but the second set...possibly a top 20 set from them. Highlights abound, from the Peaches > MLB jam > Bowie through Tweezer and YEM, but this is a show/set that needs to be appreciated AS A WHOLE, as it is greater than the proverbial sum of its parts.

Careful playing this after a phish show this summer; it might bum you out just a bit :) 1994!!!
