7.13.99 Great Woods, Mansfield, MA



Phish.net show page

Set 1: NICU, The Curtain, Halley's Comet -> Roses Are Free -> NO2, Lawn Boy, Reba > Carini > Funky Bitch


 Set 2: Wolfman's Brother > Piper, Bug, Mountains in the Mist, Run Like an Antelope > Possum


Encore: Tuesday's Gone

Notes: NO2 was played for the first time since July 16, 1994 (355 shows) and, for the first known time, included the instrumental ending originally included on The White Tape. Reba was unfinished and dissolved into Carini. Antelope included Meatstick teases and Trey acknowledging his friends Dave and Luann Abrahams, who were in the crowd. Scott Murawski joined the band on Possum and the Phish debut of Tuesday’s Gone.

Ah, Great Woods...my home venue.  So many memories, especially back before they added all those open air reserved seats...back when it was actually fun to be on the lawn.  Now the "lawn" is a tiny crosswise strip in the way back.  Sorry, end of rant.  I still love the place :)  And sorry, I'm not labeling these files "Tweeter Center" even if it was officially called that at the time, and Phish.net documents it as such...just can't do it.

This show has been requested multiple times, and I feel I've taken a long enough break from '99 to come back to it.  You're gonna see (and have already seen) a bunch of '99 and '00 on this blog, first of all because I'm rediscovering it after all these years and am way into the jamming style of that period, and secondly because a lot of the AUDs from those years seem to be in need of an EQ tweak, IMO.

This remaster was done from an OTS pull by way of a Schoeps cmc6/mk41 mic (etree shnid 32444).  It's got great energy, nice and loud and with a superb stereo image.  I just felt there was this thin veil of fuzz preventing the notes from piercing through the air on their way to the mics, so in typical fashion I've applied some ghetto-fabulous tweaks to the EQ in search of a clearer listen.

Enjoy.

p.s. - I've decided to include the set list and footnotes info from Phish.net right in the posts, as well as provide the link.  A main reason I wanted to link people to the show's Phish.net page is that sometimes there are show reviews there, as well as other tidbits such as gap charts, who was at the show, stats, etc.  But I figured folks might like a snapshot of the set list right in the post.  I welcome feedback as to whether you like it or if it's too much clutter.  Thanks!

just a little story about this show.
This was the first show I ever got on cdr. After collecting XLII's for a couple years previous. A great friend of mine, Big BL, who introduced me to phish, did the whole summer tour, and came home right after columbus, and had this show and the 4th of July weekend as well. I remember being blown away how clear cd's sounded compared to the hiss from the analog. So in a couple of ways this remaster is only going to IMPROVE on a great memory for me!!!


Can't thank you enough!!!

I made in late to this show. Missed NICU, caught the end of Curtain. Luckily I made it for NO2 so I could feel like I had absolutely no idea what was going on. Made great show friends! Thanks for the work!

Its only a minimal hiss, and I love it. I think it adds a great gritty sound that captures this awesome show!

Kenny Powers said...

you hear hiss in this? It was recorded digitally...shouldn't have any hiss at all.

Listen to No2 and lawn boy closely, its not as obvious when they're playing louder songs. There is a small hiss to it in the backround, its just not that defined.

Kenny Powers said...

huh, interesting - never noticed. i'll have to relisten later tonight.

this show was the friggin tits. It rained so hard during the morning that as we sat in our tent at the Miles Standish Forrest, we wondered what was going to be. Then, the clouds cleared and the sun came out. I remember seeing the Hood blimp grace the lot with its presence. You knew from the moment that you walked in that this show was gonna be special. The jam from Halley's to Roses is one of my favorites of all time. The Reba is no slouch either.

Sounds great, thank you!

Of all the shows I have been to and and all the shows I have heard this is my favorite. Thank you very very very much for choosing to remaster this show :D

Dude this sounds really really F*ckin good. Loved these shows. glad for people like you who take the time. I can now listen to them (I never listen to audience tapes!) with pleasure

JDUB said...

thanks for taking the time bro. i loved these two shows. you are a solid citizen

Kenny Powers said...

JDUB - this is why you SHOULD listen to audience tapes! it usually takes a little EQ adjustment but once you get into that habit, i find they are almost always more enjoyable than SBDs. well, except for the really well-done SBDs.
