Review by ColForbin

ColForbin Remember when Phish played every song perfectly and really fast? Yeah, that's this show (and most other 92 shows, for that matter). Fiery maze, fantastic solo by Trey in Jim, helped by what I assume was a mostly empty pavilion to make the band's sound that much bigger. The band plays around with some sort of melody at the beginning of Bowie - I can't place it but one of you wizards out there will figure out the tease. Simpson's language signal during the Bowie intro as well. This is a short - but very sweet - Bowie, and Trey is at the height of his guitar powers here, dropping some nice riffs throughout the jam section. Sweet Adeline closes out this set - the only thing notable is that you can actually hear the band - they must have used microphones.

The main problem with this show is they were the opening act, so only had about half an hour.

Many thanks to @scott_bernstein for transferring this show from his analog master: the only recording that exists! Great sound, seek it out if you can!

3 out of 5 stars because I wanted way more Phish than I got!
