The new LivePhish release is a selection from Phish’s 1999 Fall Tour. The quartet’s September 18, 1999 concert is now available for purchase via LivePhish.com and to stream for LivePhish+ subscribers.

Phish’s performance at the then called Coors Amphitheatre came early in the tour and was the band’s first show at the venue opened the year before. The at-the-time fourth-ever “Tweezer” first set opener brought an instant dose of improvisation before a move to Ween’s “Roses Are Free.” The set progressed with “Wilson” > “Maze” and “Brian & Robert” before a 10-minute “Tube.” The second cover of the set, “Rocky Top,” closed out the opening frame.

According to the Jam Chart on Phish.net, the Chula Vista set two opening version of “Boogie On Reggae Woman,” clocking in at over 21 minutes, is the longest performance of Stevie Wonder’s funky favorite on record. More funk poured out of the subsequent “Meatstick” (with a fan brought onstage to do the dance) and “Free” pairing, before a “Bouncing Around The Room” breather. A “dripping psychedelic” offering of “Harry Hood” kept the set going with Trey Anastasio injecting elements of “Stash.” A cover of “Frankenstein” and “Cavern” closed out the set. The encore began with “Contact” and with “Tweezer Reprise” closing things out, it became the first full-show “Tweezer Sandwich.”
