I don't remember him looping at Eugene either.  Listened to Denver 1 and it sounds great, but I have really like all of them.  The only ones I have not heard yet are Boulder 2 and Redding.  Have really enjoyed it.  I think face with fees was $90 for the highest tier in Eugene.  Well worth it I think.  But the Eugene show was not sold out and by the time the show came around, tix were $30 online and also free ones stuck into the side of the venue.  I wish I had snapped a pic of those.  That said, super scalper Hicks took both my pair and my brother in laws pair and got good dough for them 30 minutes before the show.  I wasn't even going to bother going out and trying to sell them and Hicks took up the challenge and sold four basically worthless (market value I mean) tickets in like 15 minutes.  It was miracle.  And all the while doing that ended up buying another single and flipping that at profit too.  Guy is a stud.

Heh, yeah I was hustling hard. Buying the row G off of a kid for $10 and then selling it for $40 two minutes later as I was walking into the venue was pretty gangsta.   8-)

 :clap: :clap: :clap:

and that kids, is how it's done.

Shit. That's some decent lunch money.

The partial SBD from the 9:30 Club show is essential listening.

I second this.

I’ve actually never heard that tune...but the even bigger bust out here is Glide II!  That’s a good tune, IMO. Simple, floaty and catchy. I want to hear a Mikes>Glide 2>Weekapaug.

Glide II for sure, big bust out.  But you've never heard Snowflakes in the Sand?  You really need to revisit May '99, both acoustic and electric sets.  Awesome stuff there.

Strong agree here.
I'll also add that, imo, Snowflakes In The Sand is a much better song.

I also like Snowflakes in the Sand as a better acoustic song, relative to Glide II.  The song is also somewhat significant as part of the "trilogy of duologies" that debuted that May '99 tour, which included "Bug" and "Windora Bug", "First Tube" and "Last Tube", and "Sand" and "Snowflakes in the Sand".

I second this.

I'd love to see a full show archive release from that tour.  but until then, I concur that the partial SBD from the 9:30 club show is rad.

I caught myself singing Windora Bug a couple days ago. Loved that tune.
Instead of having to plan and save for your next vacation, why not work on creating a life you don't feel the need to escape from...

I suspect putin and trump have something to do with this
that's great. people are stupid.
My records are my media for music.

I have never been able to get that song out of my head since I saw the first performance in '99. Imagine having the same song in your head for nearly 20 years!

Partial SBD is awesome. But we need the acoustic set. Especially from that drunken mayhem night with Tom sitting in.

Phish makes me happy.  It's as simple as that.

I had a great, crisp copy of that show on tape back in the day, which I played constantly, and I still listen to it on a regular basis (the show itself, not my old tapes).  The first set, especially the stuff with Tom, is both fun and beautiful.  And the whole second set, from Jibboo through Voodoo Child, is sick.  And if that Row Jimmy encore doesn't give you chills, I don't want to be your friend.

A full LP release would be fantastic.

Loving the Boulder N1 show. Turtle in the Clouds is sweet.
His eyes were clean and pure but his mind was so deranged
