The last 3 nights were all sold out. The other nights were not, but were all pretty close. Really only behind the stage seats and upper level last row seats were the only ones unsold.

I don't know about the shows prior to 7/29, but from that show on, they were all sold out. People were able to grab tickets at the box office an hour or two before the show but there was a big line so I can only assume by the time the shows started the tickets were sold.

230+ songs in 13 shows is the very definition of epic.

They were giving out donuts before the shows started? That's awesome.

230+ songs in 13 shows? Insane

Any show who stands out of this run? Really didn't follow the run.

Sporcle quiz for the run:

[Only registered users can see links.]

It seems that Powdered (7.26) is really popular on the boards. I thought 7.30 was great to listen to, as well. 7.29 is a biased pick. What's amazing though is that even the least of these 13 shows are above anything last year at minimum. They are all great shows and it comes down to taste. If you like your Phish super-jammy there's a show for you. If you like them spacey, there's a show for you.

Is it safe to assume a monstrous Baker's Dozen boxset will be released?

Well, a SBD every show is already available so who knows. Their box sets have always been archival stuff...except for maybe Hampton (if that counts as a box set).

Ah that's right. I actually just poked around on LivePhish.com and there is a CD option as well.

7/25. I like the 2nd set of the following night a lot, too. But there is great stuff all throughout.

It really is amazing how quick they are with the LivePhish downloads now. I'd be on the train 20 minutes after the show and the get email that it was up

What nights are considered the standouts thus far?

my opinion on the above seems to be rather widely held, as well. listen to those 3 sets.

Also, on this, I think they'd be best served putting out a wide-release compilation of the run. Fans like us already can have every full show we want. But this run piqued the interest of casual fans and music fans in general and a comp. that would be available on the likes of Spotify would be a good idea.

A compilation would be a cool idea.

I'm the first to admit that my level of Phish fandom has varied over the years, but I have always tried to be aware of what they're doing and listen to a few shows here and there each year. I always give their studio albums a listen as well just to see what kind of new music they're creating. They've always impressed me.

But you're right, this Baker's Dozen thing has definitely made a lot of people take some notice that otherwise probably wouldn't. It's just so undeniably cool.

For some reason, whenever I connect my iPhone to my car it plays the A Team by Ed Sheeran even though that song isn't actually on my phone. So, in my most genius move, I put a Tweezer Reprise into iTunes and named the song, album, band all AAAA, and now whenever I get in my car and plug it in it's all
