Had a blast last night. Trey was in a great mood and the crowd was amazing. So respectful and quiet. The venue, of course, was fabulous. More opened which was cool. Trey’s playing has gotten so much better on the acoustic. Not sure if itis practice, or sobriety (probably both), but he has gotten so much better. He basically nailed Lizards, pretty sure only one small lyrical hiccup. And, he jammed out Tube

And I agree with the improvement of his acoustic playing.

After Lizards he said something like, “man, that song has a lot of chords. For the last twenty years, when we play it live, I just let page play them. I just do bar chords and hit the reverb. Cause reverb is sexy. Too many chords.”

Show was up on youtube Sunday afternoon. Really fun watch. How did you like the venue?

If the rest of the tour is as good or better this will be a nice run of shows to get from LP when they eventually post them.
i thought the same thing about the length of the show after listening to a Morristown stream on Thursday night, but I went back and looked at the shows from last year and they were about the same length (~105-110 minutes)

trey is having so much fun at these shows- what a great way to connect with fans

Yeah, wish I went to that Morristown show, it's right near me, tickets were really tough to get though. Watchted the show on youtube as well, seems like a good time--definitely a short show, but then again it is just a solo acoustic show. The set from Morristown wasn't quite my favorite either, but to see Trey in an intimate setting like that, must be awesome. And his stories were pretty funny too. A shame we probably won't ever see Dave and Tim in venues that small again for a long time.

It's a good sounding 2 track board. The night before was released as a multi. Very confusing why they do what they do.

kinda funny, because there were a bunch of extras to be had right outside of the theater in Ithaca. there was even a re-release early on in the day at the box office.

i thought Morristown's set was just OK too, but all of these shows are so fun to listen to. i love that Trey is using his pedals a lot more this year- it lends itself to really interesting interpretations of these tunes.

Obviously only 3 shows deep, but the Ithaca show is the best set so far IMO. Not an I was there thing either, just full of stuff that I thought were good gets and Trey solos debuts. Cool that Maze was played at Harvard too.

i loved him looking at the Sand sign in the front row. "i'm just looking at this sign up here... i'm not sure how that's going to work on this thing. eh!" and right into Sand. first time played I think?

and then to follow that up with Fuego was brilliant. lots of great little jams on Friday night.

If I knew Trey was going to be in Cambridge I would have gotten tickets to the show! Hopefully he will come back next year to do another acoustic show.

I downloaded the Morristown show. Set looks good to me. Maybe I'm just old and corny, but I like Blaze On, Everything's Right, and More. They resonate with me. Interested to hear them acoustic.

They didn't bring multi-track recording equipment to every show back then.
Starlake was a show they decided to record in multi. Vernon Downs wasn't.

So I just listened to Farmhouse earlier this morning. My first time listening to a full length Phish album. I enjoyed it for the most part.

Tascam DA-88's (their multi machine) could be finicky. That's the only real explanation I can think of. There's no confirmation that they didn't run multis at Vernon Downs

"Paul began doing 32 track DA-88 recording in Summer/Fall 1994,
and has done every show since then on 32 track, with only a few
exceptions." - Shapiro

Find it very unlikely they ran them at Star Lake and decided to send the machine straight to Maine for Lemonwheel to forgo its use at Vernon Downs. The "exceptions" that Kevin is talking about are shows like Japan '99, not cherry picking their domestic shows.
