drobs22 I was not there for this show but just listened to the first set on live phish. I never write anything here but frequent the site..however I felt so moved I just had to add a comment here. That first set was absolutely the best I have heard as far as cohesion, song selection, flow and execution. If it sounded this good recorded what it must have sounded like at Alpine, congratulations happy happy o my friend! I had my only show at a Alpine Valley for that summer '99 show(and caught that first 1999 cover the previous NYE) and it was massy (as my ol tour buddy used to say), so that was pretty cool to hear the nod to that very formative year of shows for me.

To hear something so well put together 23 years later is astonishing . There were a couple "sour" notes from Trey but it got me thinking about how critical I can get (and hear others do the same) of our coveted favorite band. To stand before that big of a crowd, playing such intricate, delicate and complex music night after night..well, as a guitarist it terrifies me to the bone to think about that many people hanging on my every note. Anyways, my point being that all four of these guys have balls of steel to have ever have pulled off what they do over and over again. So I for one, I will be a bit more forgiving if there a couple of notes played..shall we say..not as planned (besides there are no "wrong" note right?).

This set though, they played all the right notes. Peace and love y'all!
