When they dropped into the 12/6/97 post-Izabella funk during Tube on 12/7/97 everyone was hating it.

Ha, that's not true. I was on rec.music.phish those dates, and people couldn't get enough of it. I still can't get enough of the Reba from the latter date, but the MI show is overrated.

What in the hell are we talking about here again?

:)

NOW we're talking about how you don't get jokes.

Its a new years show.  They're never outstanding.  Ever. 

The rain were orbies.  If you have kids you've probably seen these before. 

Looked cool on my TV but this is why I don't fight NYC on NYE anymore.  Well that and the kids also want to party now. 

Anyway.  Hope they can carry some intensity into Mexico.  Trey was clearly very proud of himself and good for him  Keep it up Big Red!!

I agree that Trey was particularly on point during this run.

First NYE show for me.  First set was mostly a snooze, although KDF was good and Divided Sky was something I needed.  Walls was pretty nice too. 

2nd set had a lot of good in it.  A lot. 

3rd set also had a lot of good in it, too.  But Ocelot and Tide Turns are not what I want in a 3rd set on NYE, despite how great Tide Turns was with horns.  Ocelot can just die.  Fuck that song right in the chorus. 

First Tube was fucking righteous though. 


Definitely doing NYE again, and DEFINITELY never sitting behind the stage at MSG again.  Sound just wasn't great.  Never again.  Good time though.

Don't get me wrong.  I've always had fun on NYE with Phish.  Think I've seen 8 NYE shows with them.  Its just never the tight cohesive Phish we all love.  Too much pressure, different vibe etc.  It just won't happen. 

I do find it funny that for years people have wanted a set with horns and finally they deliver and people don't like it.  So I started thinking of what other tunes they could have played with horns and they were all tunes from 91-92.  Phish is not interested in the "rear view mirror" so I'm not surprised it went down the way it did. 

Anyone for a Garden Party.  Can't please everyone.....

I would argue that 12/30/93 was a better show than 12/31/93.

12/31/95 you may have me there.

12/31/99.  Er. Yes, historic night but I wouldn't put the playing on any night in 99 up against a top show from 97-98.

I'll put this up against any jam from any era:

I've been coming to where I am from the get go
Find that I can groove with the beat when I let go
So put your worries on hold
Get up and groove with the rhythm in your soul

Hate to beat the dead horse, but I'm still struggling to understand how you heard STAIRWAY in that sunrise.

I would. And I definitely prefer a lot of '99 over '98. See PNC '99, Oswego, Nassau..... Funny, I really don't listen to Phish anymore being that my living situation is not conducive to blasting music, as well as a line of thinking that believed that I'd be best to take a break from listening to 1.0 so I could appreciate 3.0. But to jog my memory of why I like '99 so much, I went back to my .net show list and began checking out set lists.....ugh, good lord do I ever miss the good ol' days.
