This week we are back to a guest pick from the past. Our guest Matt Huber has chosen 7.25.99, from Deer Creek. A really great show that has some great bust-out tunes, some really classic '99 jamming, leading up to the "millennium" sound we hear before and up to the end of Phish 1.0. Setlist and chapter markers below.
Matt plays in a Phish tribute band, Solar Garlic Band, so check out their take on Phish and go see them if they come play near you! Matt wrote some reviews from 2014 Phish shows, which can be found here.
This is the Harry Hood Matt talked about from Alpine Valley in 1996. Really wonderful jam, not surprising that Matt had such a powerful experience during this version.
