Review by Miguelito

Miguelito I’ve given much of the Fall ‘92 tour a listen recently and I’m pretty impressed. I personally caught the Albany show, 11.20.92 (my 5th show), which I loved, and there are several other excellent shows from the run as well.

When I got around to this show I wondered why it failed to rank highly. After numerous listens, I’ve concluded that this show is underrated and contains some real highlights. The recording does contain a fair amount of audience at times, but I like this added element.

The strongest of the highlights is the YEM to close set I. First of all, I love the placement. It’s a pretty rare spot but it’s my favorite placement for this tune. Next, we get a fantastic Wedge jam. The band had soundchecked it that Fall, and it didn’t debut until the next February. The transition in and out of the Wedge jam is seamless and it makes for a very interesting YEM.

The Tweezer. There are several very interesting versions of this tune this tour, with the band seemingly getting just a bit more exploratory over the course of the Fall, culminating in the fantastic take on 12.12.92. This one is no slouch and is an energetic version that worthy of your time.

There are several other highlights that I’ll briefly mention. They come out of the gate with a raging Suzy, followed by another solid Foam (one of many solid Foams from this tour). The always-welcome Divided Sky that follows is solid, but pales compared to the prior version on 11.27.92 (A very fine version in a very fine show). The Wilson Possum opening combo is a strong start to the second set, including the numerous signals within the Wilson.

While there are several other shows on this tour that I prefer, this show still has a lot to offer and I believe this show is underrated and deserves a bit more recognition that it currently does.

ThinMan First time seeing Phish back to back (Denison the night before) and I had a much better time at The Newport than I did at Denison. Nice theater with a pit floor, some risers and an upstairs. A bunch of us came down from Kenyon College and went to BW3s for a great pre-game. (side note: I think BW3 eventually turned into Buffalo Wild Wings??)

Loved the show, really hit me in the YEM to close the frst and Wilson to open the 2nd and here I am 30 years later still knee deep.

Review by thedudeabides

thedudeabides My first show and the beginning of a long quest for the musical high that Phish provides night after night. I always loved going to concerts at the Newport but I can never forget that first time I saw Phish in that old dank venue next to OSU campus. Unfortunately I've never had the opportunity to listen back to this show but it was good enough to have me hooked from then on. Ah, the good ol days

Review by DollarBill

DollarBill First time at the Newport, eleventh show of Fall tour. This is a pretty good audience recording but, a little too much crowd noise for my taste. Little bits of feedback in the monitors continue to plague them throughout this tour.

First set starts off with a standard version of Suzy to get settled in. Page's second solo is really good. Foam is also pretty regular sounding, but good and dynamic. Divided Sky is good, just a little choppy sounding at times, like it's not quite locking in with Fishman. An early version of FEFY slows things way down, but it's nice to hear anyway. A ripping Poor Heart brings the show right back up to speed. Stash was really rough. Trey was all over the place. Good jam, but not very together tonight. Lizards sounds like Trey pulled himself out of tune a little during Stash. Not too bad altogether. Sparkle is standard, so is Horn as we get more new Rift material out there. YEM makes for a great closer here, except this one is a little weak at times. The ending jam really does show Fishman working the Wedge drum part out. Nice vocal jam to end it all, funny as usual.

Long foolishness starts off an ok Wilson, complete with language signals by the end jam. Right into a solid Possum. They haven't been closing sets with this much any more. Sticking with Mike on vocals, we have a nice Mound, which is getting better every time they play it. Trey then leads right into a rocking Tweezer. Very nice jam section tonight. Mellowing out second set we have an ok Tela. Not quite locked in on this one either, but not too bad. Fish stomps on Trey's last note with the intro to a ripping Llama. Pretty standard rocker here. Glide was also dynamic tonight like Foam was. Like they were trying to finish each other's musical sentences. Fish teaches another crowd to sing along with his new song Lengthwise plus the usual vacuum solo. Nothing too crazy tonight. Coil was ok, but sounded like Mike was a little lost at times. Good Page outro as usual. So, I'm feeling like Trey is teasing Mike with Walk the Line, because he messed up in Coil. Seems like they play it whenever Mike has troubles. Anyway, Jim is a solid closer for a pretty good second set.

Double encore starts off with a rough sounding Golgi. Again, just not quite locked in all the way. Rocky Top is it's usual self tonight with lots of hooting and hollering in the backround from Fishman. Well done.

Overall this is a pretty good show. Nice song selection, but no real wow factor for me.
