fhqwhgads This is on the shorter side as far as Phish shows go, but it packs a wallop. Wilson seemed to get extended every now and then, even if just a little bit, during 1999; you can hear this on the other archival releases from that year. Chalkdust excels in energy, as does Possum, and everything in between is played well, however succinctly. Trey seems to be in frontman mode for this show. Sand is a very long version, but Mike mostly sticks to Tony Markellis's bassline throughout the jam. It's still a great jam, though, IMO, and is characteristic of 1999. Tweezer is even better, reminding me of Fall 1997, with the loops and ambient washes undergirded by a strong foundation of cowfunk. I could've dealt with the Runaway Jim being longer, but this is a show I am really into right now and love to hear.
