Reading 10.29.13 (Andrea Nusinov)

Piper” 12.29.03 II, Miami, FL

The standard against which all 2.0 “Pipers” should be measured. The short post-hiatus era were the true glory years for “Piper.”

Wolfman’s Brother” 12.1.03 Albany, NY

This pairing provided the meat of a non-stop, second set sequence.

Down with Disease” 12.30.13 II, Miami, FL

After a zany second set with both highs and lows, Phish stopped the antics on a dime and closed the show with a heart-wrenching “Disease.”

Frankie Says” 12.28.03 I, Miami, FL

This is the stuff Phish pulled off in first sets in the post-hiatus era. Out of “Frankie Says” no less.” This was in the very first set of the New Years Run.

Stash” 12.31.03 II, Miami, FL

One of the finest post-hiatus jams, period

Bathtub Gin -> 2001” 12.30 II, Miami, FL

This set-closing “2001″ foreshadowed P Funk’s second set sit in as Trey teases some classic Parliament licks.
