After much deliberation, countless hours of comparative listening and so much waffling I could have fed the line at an all you can eat waffle buffet at IHOP, I’ve finalized my ideal Phish setlist. There are just so many good versions of each song, I eventually had to come to terms with the fact that I’m never going to be able to choose favorites. But I can choose versions that I love and then save the others for sharing at some other time. So that’s what I did. So… in preparation for Phish’s summer tour… I present to you my ideal phantasy setlist, complete with two sets and an encore!
