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.

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.
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!
