Since Trey has just been gigging with TAB and Phish has just announced a New Year’s run at Madison Square Garden, it seems like a good time to check something I’ve been mulling over for the past year or so: the first big jam of 3.0.

It seems like every tour I read comments along the way that say, “Phish is finally back!” but the fact is, they’ve been on fire from right out of the gate, whether or not you happened to catch a killer show. The jam in question is of course of the Down With Disease > Seven Below from the third night of the Hampton run, something that’s potentially easy to overlook in light of all the great music that has transpired since then. Of particular note is the sweet Undermind tease that comes right before the transition, jamming on a tune that was debuted early in the evening, and again, something that was overlooked at the time. So roll back the years and reconsider just how strong the band was in those early hours, and as always, enjoy!
