fhqwhgads 1999 is an underrated year in Phishtory, in my opinion, though most phans knowledgeable and interested enough to be part of .Net know many of its merits. This is just a great show, from top to bottom. Wilson gets extended a little bit, as was Phish's wont in '99, but the Chalkdust that follows is rightfully (and righteously) legendary. It soars effortlessly, the jam striking me just now--I'm a little verklempt--as a sort of updated soundtrack to the journey of the Famous Mockingbird, if you can dig that. Roggae is a great cooldown. Gin also reaches huge heights, as do Tweezer, BOAF, and Fluffhead. This show seems homologous with 2/28/03, to me, in that there are about 4 or 5 great big jams, though instead of the Destiny bustout, here we get the rare Back at the Chicken Shack. You've heard this show, or if only about it, no time like the present!
