n00b100 This one isn't exactly gonna challenge 7/2/97 in my heart or anything, but its very presence in 7/15/16 II, to me, speaks volumes about the sheer fun factor of that set, as I am convinced that Trey was just messing around by playing that riff like he did in the 7/20/14 Weekapaug - only instead of just letting it go by, the band decided to call his bluff and stop playing NMINML, and Trey decided to roll with it and go into Stash proper. Why else would a) we get a song that had been firmly established as a Set 1 staple in Set 2, and b) Trey kick into Ghost 0.01 seconds after Stash finished? Either way, a decent version from an absolutely joyful Set 2.

n00b100 Page's work leading into the major chord jam is one of my favorite moments of his in the live catalog. Possibly a pre-planned jam (3.0 transitions in jams tend to be smooth, but the transitions in and out of themes here are almost breathtakingly flawless), but as always, if the jam is this good it hardly matters. The final hose segment, in particular, is worth the price of admission alone. One of 2013's top highlights.

CameToPlay One of my favorite jams of 2013. Elegant and orchestral. Goes into major, but still never veers too far from the main theme. I noticed when at the show, the jam really captivated the audience in a way a lot of great jams don't. Some jams are better on playback. I think that is a good way to describe this jam. Captivating. Among the best of the "beautiful" jams of 2013.

CJayW The Tweezer from this show also deserves mention.

CreatureoftheNight This version rises to a soaring peak. Deserving of a higher rating.

kipmat I hadn't listened to this great, great version in a couple of years, and I returned to it after having been digging deep into The Siket Disc release for a while. The Siket Disc culls jams from the band's improvisational recording sessions from March and October of 1997, and the Type II jam in this Stash certainly shares characteristics with a few of the Siket Disc jams. In particular, the section from 14:30-16:00 is probably the closest the band has come to a performance of the Siket Disc track "Insects". Not a definite tease, but still pretty cool. It's a testament to the greatness of Fall '97 that the next version of Stash from 11/23 Winston-Salem is arguably even better than this monster.

TweezingSpaceRanger Longest Stash ever without being involved in a string of songs like the Orlando 95 version. The melodic hose jam near the last third of the song is as beautiful and exhilarating as blowing a mound of cocaine and racing a cheetah

kipmat No description, because words fail to do justice to the beauty of this version.

fhqwhgads This version fascinates me! First of all, it starts out a faster tempo than I'm accustomed to. Then, Fish drops a kind of bluegrass rhythm into the mix in the jam, sort of like I'd hear in Back on the Train. The peak is very tension-and-release, as Stash tends towards, but Trey in particular gets to me in a good way in this version.

hdorne Not one of the most far-reaching, exploratory versions by any stretch, but the tension and release here are undeniably fun. The way they work themselves into a dissonant corner and find their way back out again is classic Phish. Not to mention, Trey just shreds all over the place here. After all these years, it still gives me goosebumps. This was the first Stash I ever heard, and it's always held a special place in my heart.

kipmat Another one of those "merely great" versions from a month of outstanding versions. I thought I heard Page playing one of his parts from the composed section of Reba during this jam.

Hugh_Mongus Great transition from The Curtain, this Stash includes some great playing between trey and page toward the end

kipmat The backlash to the audience shouting “woo!” during breaks in jams hasn’t been a serious issue since 2014, but even so, audible “woos” from the audience can be heard in this version, during the breaks that are now filled with handclaps. Pretty cool to remember that this sort of audience participation was a trend way back when.
