docj7 This was by far one of my favorite Phish shows. It was my third show and I was so stoked about Phish and this show pretty much sent me off to being a phish junky. I thought after Jerry died the musical trip that I was on was over, until I experienced Phish. I started out very young seeing shows. My first was the Grateful Dead when I was thirteen, my first concert ever. I saw 13 Dead shows before Jerry past away. I graduated high school in '94 so I saw some really good shows. I wish I was a little bit older to maybe appreciate what I saw and kind of understand a little better. So it took my friend a little while to get me to listen to Phish,there was always something weird about dead fans listening or being fans of Phish. Like if you liked the dead you couldn't or it felt like shouldn't like phish. Which I still find in some people. To this day a guy I know calls phish a grateful dead cover band. I don't understand. I could ramble about that issue for a while. This is the show that solidified phish to me as a great band. To this day Phish is still a part of my life. When I said it took me a while to listen to Phish I worked on a great friend of mine who was reluctant because of the whole "if you're a true deadhead you can't listen to phish. He to became a huge phan and just visited from Hawaii and we saw phish together for the fist time in years. I think this was the show that put a great band and a lot of great friends and good times in my life.
