wolfmans star lake is wayyyyy better in terms of improv and band cohesiveness...i would be the first to tell you that this loving cup is the best ever but in a desert island situation, I would take a really good wolfmans over the best loving cup and thats what it comes down to...

I loved the shit outta that Wolfman's. I really did. It was cohesive and tight, but that Cup... I mean, we all knew it was part of the Halloween Set, but when it actually started up, it was like, I can't explain it...an EXPLOSION of sudden unexpected emotion!!! BOOOM!!! Tears, ear to ear grins, jumps, hugs, glowsticks, glowsticks, glowsticks! It was like, here's this thing that Phish does (cover sets on Halloween) during this other big thing that Phish does (Festivals) and they're playing this big song that Phish has played for years and years and it's almost like it's their own, but we are reminded here that it's not, but it kind of is...but... so on, so forth... WHOOOO!!!

That's the hard thing with this Bracket Buster. Musicality or Experience, or Both?

Like the Ya Mar at Charlottesville that Will always says was sloppy. Well, it WAS pretty fucking sloppy at first, but the electric telepathic energy in that place was ecstatic! First, Ya Mar starts, then seeming disaster ensues, a few feelings of "oh shit, this might not be good at all" to oh, he's hugging Trey now, oh now he's finally off the stage, music gets tight, "give it up for naked guy..." That was a seat-of-your-pants moment for sure. I thought that fucker was gonna straight up knock one of the guys over, or some equipment, or atleast accidentally unplug someone. It was a big relief when we all realized it was OK.

Some of these are just too fucking hard to vote against when you were there feeling those feelings.

please everybody, re-listen to both of them and really think deeply about which hits the spot more....everything aside, if I were gonna show a buddy some phish I wouldnt show them the fest8 loving cup, which is a cover with horns and backing vocals, even if it was the best version ever...I would most certainly show them this wolfmans though as I think in its 10 minute it covers such a wide spectrum and really demonstrates their sound and what they are capable of...i dunno i think this wolfmans is the underdog of the year any1 wanna back me up on that?

I already voted, but I will try to relisten. I remember loving that Wolfman's like I said, but I know for sure that the emotion that I felt during that Wolfman's wasn't near anything of a fraction of what I felt during that Cup. I mean, I've listened to the Cup quite a few times, and it's really great, but probably not as great a jam as that Wolfman's, sure. But it was one of those had to be there things, I think, unfortunately. They were both very good, and this is a very serious matchup.

I'll agree with Wolfman's Starlake being ONE of the underdog's of the year.

Ooh, I see my vote tied it up. I went with Wolfman's. Yes, the Loving Cup at 8 was special, but for me it wasn't one of the epic moments of the weekend. If it had been Just Want to See His Face it would have been no contest. But that Starlake show was the first time I got to see Phish with my oldest of oldest tour buddies (Mr. Ubiquitous Smokey) in 5 years and seeing this Wolfman's (along with the DSky) gave me a feeling I just can't describe. Plus yes, musically I enjoy(ed) it more.

my opinion only but...this IS NOT the best loving cup ever come on now. personally the best ever is off the live 18 album go listen to THAT lovin cup and tell me its not better and that treys solo in that version doesnt beat the lovin cup from fest8...also im biased b/c i witnessed the wolfmans and it was a peak of all peaks to be witnessing phish again and to have that wolfmans drop in the first set it was just great great times...definitly not the best wolfmans by any means not even close but a damn good version.

Refer to the sticky, and my inability to make even brackets. And my general suckiness. Plus, don't forget my ability to be a towel. And... yes.

Just listened.


Trey totally botched the beginning... :D

The solo is rad. That was the second or third Phish show I ever got. I love this show a lot. (I still don't think that Loving Cup beats the Fest8 Cup, but that's just me.)

hahah yes the solo is rad! and that was the first phish show i ever bought/listened to so i guess bias comes out a little bit.. but i understand if in your opinion the fest8 lovin cup is better i just think that lovin cup from live 18 kicks so much ass

No doubt.

The debate in this thread is similar to the Ghost/Fluffhead. The special experience vs. downright good jam.
