When was the last show that had 30+ minute jams in the first and second sets?

Seems like never? 8/3/03, a three-setter, had a 25 / 31 / 39 in those respective sets (CDT / Ghost / 46 Days).

That was special.

<gainesvillegreen> now, if they could get their sound to be as good as the lights, we'd have a band hee-yah!!

Music is what feelings sound like.

I can't fucking believe they played End of Session! Who expected that? Ever?

Guy came on HFPod on Monday and called for it to be played at this show.

Well..... who... besides that guy?!

what a night!  thank you phish for the jams and for providing couch tour.  if i had "missed" that one, i would have been pissed!  in fact, without couch tour, i'd probably bump up my flight to include the shows this weekend.  god bless couch tour!

He's like 15, but so well spoken and astute!

He really helped me solidify my own thoughts about last night's show. 

Look out FZappa20, there's a new recapper in town!

But, I don't think our fans do happily lap it up, I think they go online and talk about how it was a bad show.

Listened to set 1. wow
30 min Lawn boy is cool, but the jams in Sample, My Friend, and Gin were beautiful. Stash was right on point, can stand up to 1.0 versions

So I gotta revisit the whole thing, but at the time I felt like during Stash and Gin that the band were a little gassed, running on fumes.  Granted, it could have simply been because they totally blew their fucking load during Sample and Lawn Boy.  What a start to a show.  Best show opening ever? 

Also, those dudes on Phish.net need to chill the fuck out.  This show is not better than Cypress lol.  Get real.  It's certainly legendary, but come on.  One jam-filled show over a 7-hour jam-filled set?  It seems like this is biased towards the kydz who were there, and who weren't old enough to get to Cypress. 

Anyway, this band is unreal right now.  I knew this day would come.  I knew it would.  Despite all the 11-song second sets, 6-minute Ghosts, 3-minute Tubes, ripcorded jams and The Whale, I knew this was still here.  They just needed an excuse to bring it out.


The big question is whether or not they had enough fun to do this at regular shows now.  I should hope they saw the audience response........

07-29-98 says no.

Seriously tho it was awesome.

Given the band's reaction to these past two nights, I gotta believe the answer is yes. Not every night maybe, but more often than they have been. The monster grin on Trey's face over Page's shoulder as Page was destroying the intro to No Quarter last night warmed my heart.

Gotta be careful tho. Expectations are a helluva dr00g.
