From the Stage to the Couch
Once it became easier to interact online, setlists became easier to obtain. The exponential expansion of the Phish knowledge-base took hold and eventually made it's way to the recordings. You no longer had to wait months to get that recording of the summer shows you attended. With a little effort, you were able to find these online or at least reach the people with the large caches of tapes willing to dub these for you. When Maxell II's were replaced by the standard blank Fuji CDR as the preferred media for shows, the quality of what you heard began to improve overall.
Hoodstream and Phishtube have made it possible for a volunteer to provide coverage from the lot and from inside the venue.
We have even been able to enjoy simulcasts directly from shows with THX sound in air conditioned theaters.
