This week on the show I am joined by Scotty and special guest / past panelist Justin Wendt and the three of us discuss one of our favorite years in Phish history, 1999. The mission: to explain why 1999 belongs in the discussion about the band’s best years and show what makes it such a different year than any other. Obviously, many of you might already agree with this statement. But even for us it might be easy to gloss over ’99 in favor of ’98, ’97, or even ’94. Cypress aside, this year saw a new jam style, fun setlist antics, and the overall feeling that we were building towards something special. This is all discussed, and as usual, we have some clips to back it up.
Thanks for listening,
PS: Look for a blog post in the next few days with our “Honorable Mentions” and a bonus track of my special “’99 Power Hour.”
