    Been a few months since I last posted in here - Was listening to this lxl the other day because I hadn't in years (honestly maybe 10+) https://phish.in/1997-12-11/limb-by-limb As one of my favorite songs, I love most versions of Limb by Limb. But this version is just spectacular. And a SBD with perfect Trey tone? Yeah, it's worth a re-listen!

    Ah, I didn't realize you were Scrooge McDuck swimming in a pool full of coins and gold statues! That's awesome - you should definitely go for it, then!

    I feel like I've said this a zillion times, but the band only really plays well when: a. they've been practicing a lot pre-tour in the making of an album (see Fall 2013) b. are playing a festival at the end of 3 weeks of shows (see MagnaBall) c. are playing a historic theme-related novel show/set of shows (see Haunted House, 1/2 of baker's dozen run) NYE with no winter tour and Maya Riviera never fall into those categories anymore and seem to be consistently mediocre. I'd way rather pay for 10 years of season passes for skiing, 50 dinners at a fancy restaurant, or insane quantities of amazing beer than see a show in Mexico. I feel like a lot of us are at this point.

    YES! That is one of my favorite jams ever. It took place at about 430 iirc and things had really started to get weird. I remember the Slave being kind of a cap stone to what I thought of as a 'show'. Albequerque through My Soul seemed herky jerky - short song/long song/short song/long song. Drowned got really crazy and then there were two slow ones pieced together. At that point, lots and lots of people had either fallen asleep or were back in their tents. The piper was really, to me, the peak of the late night insanity and it is often forgotten about. Once they started Roses, you got the feeling like the morning was coming and it didn't seem so dark out. In retrospect, it is amazing to me that, at the time, people were regularly complaining on RMP that they didn't play Harpua, Forbin's, or do gamehendge. Seriously. At the time, I remember lots of debate about the quality of the show. People really wanted some sort of narration.

    Cowphunk kept suggesting playing nearby for the fans who were there. Kind of a "let's play somewhere so people can at least hear something" But that guy is an idiot. There's no better way to piss off people who already taken a huge bath by playing an unannounced show AFTER someone has already turned around to go home.

    I remember people losing their shoes at the very entrance to the gate at IT, but I remember the crew bringing in hay and making a walkway and stuff like that. Regarding traffic, yeah it sucked. It was also a really long time ago so maybe I was just tolerant of it at the time? Was traffic as bad for the Went?

    30 hours? Oh no baby wat is you doin We took a variety of back roads to cut down the traffic at the entrance considerably. I honestly didn't notice the concert field being a problem either.

    They had a good thing going in Limestone. Remote, sure, but things always went smoothly there. Just sayin'

There's no doubt that extreme precipitation events are occurring more frequently and that includes New England. Warmer air masses holding more water coupled with stalled high pressure systems in the arctic due to arctic amplification are a one-two punch.

    Yeah, Siket Disc is great. It's short, but really the last time the band did something really wild in the studio (other than the Victor Disc)

    Oosh - what a tragic situation. That is just awful Phish does have a way of making up for these kinds of lost gigs. For instance - 2/20/93 - was played to make up for the half-cancelled atlanta gig the year before on 3/28/92.

    Remember when he kept posting tDB clips and everyone got really pissy? That was pretty funny. Gotta give him props - he produces something every day and it is definitely a significant effort, all for free.

    It has been a really really wet year in New England, so its no surprise that the ground is pretty soft down there. Unlike Coventry, though, Watkins Glen seems very functional and I bet things will be great once everyone gets to the actual campgrounds. On the positive side of things, sounds like the beer selection is gonna be really good, like at Super Ball. @Dustin are you going?
