Review by discotrav

discotrav This was, honest to Jah;-) my first show. I had been listening to Phish for 2 or 3 years by that point. Friends I knew would spin a show or two off for me and I truly thought I got IT. I was sooo wrong. Looking back I kinda wish this hadn't been my first show. The first set was fun but then the second set Tweezer kicked in and didn't let up for like an hour. Now, I had listen many hours of the boys on tape but this was something different. I had never heard anything so loose, full of interesting musical ideas, and a down right mind phuck. I couldn't fully wrap my mind around what I was hearing at the time. Well, over the next ten years I continued to see them as much as I could, which was quite a bit. I went to anywhere from 3 to 7 or 8 shows a year until Coventry. I was chasing that first time I saw them around the country and although I saw many epic shows over the years nothing was like the Dallas Tweezerfest. I was blessed with this as my first show but I wish I had been able to fully appreciate what I had witnessed on that night. Great show to listen to. I remember, after watching a long already trippy show, Fishman coming out and singing Purple Rain with Trey on drums screaming "suck it mother fucker" during the vacuum solo. I mean, it was blissed out insanity at it's finest.
