* - with Jon (coming from sunny Florida to sunny Florida, "Soda Jerk")
       on vacuum  
** - unfinished  
*** - J.J. Cale cover from the album "Naturally" best known for the
         Eric Clapton version; first time played  
**** - (11:35pm) Set began with Father Time on stage pedalling away at
          a stationary bike, powering a large clock, the sound of the
          gears are heard over the PA. At approximately 11:50pm Father
          Time collapsed from exhaustion and the clock stops. At this
          time a fan boat was heard from a set of speakers in the back
          corner of the concert field and a large fan boat entered the
          field from halfway back, stage right. After crossing 1/4th of
          the field the sides and top of the fan boat were blown off to
          reveal the band riding in the hot dog from the 1994 NYE show.
          The hotdog crossed the concert field and the approached the
          stage as the band threw lei's and other goodies into the crowd.
          As the hot dog neared the stage, an instrumental version of
          "Meatstick" came over the PA. Once the hotdog reached the stage,
          the band disembarked carrying several meatsticks which were fed
          to Father Time, reviving him so that the clock could continue
          moving towards midnight.  
^ - instrumental version with the band picking up the song from a
       pre-recorded version played over the PA for the last 45 seconds of
       the year
   ^^ - with vocal/instrumental jam as Trey, Mike and Page sang the notes
        as they played them  
^^^ - recorded live for ABC TV's Millennium coverage (aired between
         3:15 and 3:30am EST); Trey instructed the crowd to chant the word
        "Cheesecake" rather than clap and cheer at the close of the song
         in an attempt to confuse the TV viewers (similar to the "secret
         language" additions for the 1992 NYE show); Trey introduced the
         band for the recorded footage and offered a message of peace and
         love for the world about the importance of the
         left lane of the highway being the passing lane  
% - with "Cheesecake" vocal jam  
%% - Trey solo acoustic  
%%% - from "The Siket Disc" with Mike holding up a voice box repeating
         the phrase "Quadrophonic Toppling"  
%%%% - with Jon on vacuum; Jon introduced Page before the song and Mike
          and Trey afterwards, and the band as being Phish 2000  
$ - no encore; post-show music over the PA was the Beatles "Here Comes
       the Sun"

10/20/2000 Trey Wheeler This is, hands down, the best audience recording I own.
03/18/2002 Mike Definately the best audience recording of an outdoors show. See FOB source of 7/1-2/98 for my favorite audience recordings ever.
03/19/2002 Mike Also, to avoid confusion, "Minestrone" known as "The Inlaw Josie Wales" per Farmhouse. Awesome source!!
05/02/2002 Matt-chew Alternate tracking suggestion for 8 cd (*requires 80 min. blank): 1)d1t1->d2t2*, 2)d2t3->d3t5*, 3)d4t1->d4t5, 4)d5t1->d5t3, 5)d6t1->d7t1*, 6)d7t2->d8t5*, 7)d8t6->d9t2, 8)d9t3->d10t4* No segues are compromised.
02/08/2003 Allen what wanna know... is where is the FOB schoeps like the night before? this is a great sounding source, either way.
11/25/2004 seth A++ recording , great sounding
04/08/2005 Nat I'd be really interested in the whole story behind this source. I've heard things about multiple tapers getting together, and such, but whose rig was this? I'm just so in love with this show and this source, It'd be great to hear the backstory
04/09/2005 Matt-chew I've always thought this was a good source- but just good. Do people cream on this source because most festival recordings come out sounding bad? A perfect source wouldn't need any EQ and when I listen to this seed I have to substantially turn treble up and bass down (on a very good high end system). The left channel is louder than the right? I saw this show & am eternally grateful that there are people kind enough to tape shows, but let's stop pretending this source is the greatest thing since sliced bread (or its sequel, Sliced Bread II: Electric Boogaloo). Now what would really kick my ass is if Phish released this SBD some way or another (an advanced resolution medium would really make me cream in my jeans).
09/12/2005 Morv For as many hours of recording this show is... if those are your only complaints, I'd say that's an excellent recording.

Take your high end system, turn up the treble, and turn the high end down, and adjust your balance... or put the entire damn thing on your computer and adjust the levels digitally, put it on CD, and have your complaints taken care of.

I've come to the conclusion that SHN and FLAC traders may be very nice, good, sharing people... but there's a tendency towards being pretentious and not terribly forgiving in attitude. (Forgive me, I'm an unworthy collector 160kbps+ MP3s -- but until 200 gig HDs grow on trees, I can't afford to archive large quantities of SHN/FLACs.)

Chill man, and enjoy the recording.

Thanks for posting the show. Much thanks indeed.
11/30/2005 JB Unbelievable quality for an AUD. I believe in the Stone Age I had this source on tape. Even better on the CD. Incredible. Nice work and thanks for all of the hard work. It brings back some great memories. Thanks again.
