Phish Friday | The Hiatus Ends...

filed under: ,

We're getting close to the end of the work week here and I'm finding myself all sorts of swamped at work, so I just thought I'd pick an easy set of MP3's for today's Phish Friday.

Remember when Phish went on hiatus?

Remember when they came back and announced that they were playing Madison Square Garden for New Year's Eve 2002? I sure do. I remember thinking, man...

"Oh man, I HAVE to be there for THAT."

Of course I didn't end up going, but I did download the audience copies the second they were posted and I attentively listened to the "Return of Phish" as if my life depended on it. I was critical. Expectations were high. And I remember being left unimpressed. Bummer.

I do remember this segment as my favorite...

Unimpressed, except for the return of "Mound" of course. That was easily my favorite song off Rift for a very, very long time and the intro to that song still gives me chills.

Or wait, except for the the hilarious tie-in to Castaway and Tom Hanks, too.

Maybe it was a little impressive...

I was there and the return of Mound was great. My favorite part was easily 7 below and the white confeti that made it look like it was snowing in MSG.

Justin, what year do you think Phish was at their peak?

btw, the castaway/wilson part was classic. that movie sucked, though.

I thought the show was a letdown. I built it up way too much in my head though.

I think I did the same and I'm sure it would have been fun if I was there, but really and truly -- they didn't really do anything impressive (for Phish)? MSG on NYE? Been there, done that...

The snow was impressive, but you had to be there to appreciate it.
