Phish shared pro-shot video of “Down With Disease.” The 30-minute excursion took place at the band’s July 16, 2022 summer tour stop at Maine Savings Amphitheater in Bangor, Maine.

A classic Phish jam vehicle, debuted in full in 1994, “Down With Disease” has seen its fair share of excellent jams over the years. But the instant classic 2022 Bangor version certainly ranks among the top renditions and at 30:31 is the second longest to date just behind the December 12, 1995 version from Providence which clocks in at 31:46, as per Phish.net.

The 2022 Bangor “DWD” followed second set opener “Sigma Oasis.” Read an excerpt from JamBase contributor Robert Ker’s coverage of the show below:

The band opened the second set with “Sigma Oasis,” devolving the jam portion of the song into washes of mellow effects that didn’t take listeners from point A to point B so much as provide an array of textures to luxuriate in. This set the table for the “Down with Disease” to come —- an electric excursion that featured numerous peaks and whipped the crowd into an ever-escalating frenzy. The jam initially seemed like it was going to wind down early, but Jon Fishman refused to let it die, pushing the band forward with his typically inspired play and relentless drum rolls that egged Trey on. Around the 16-minute mark, the band cooled down to a slower pace that featured space to breathe, and Mike colored this canvas with riffs from his arsenal of bass effects for several minutes. Page McConnell’s organ then shifted the jam back up a few gears with a fast-paced riff that led the group to a final, glorious peak.
