(Published on the legacy Phish.net site many years ago...)

Small is the word.Accoustics were good but totally intimate with bout est.200-300 people.(I've always wondered how you accurately estimate crowds,I only have ten fingers)Things really began to shape up during coil where Page set just the sweetest piano.Then It's Ice(does any one else visualize cracks just shoting through an ice cube in a glass of water when Trey play's th opening?)kept a steady grove into I didn't know.As you heard the crew got there bath robe's while Fisman played the longest Highhat intro into Bowie.(They also invited the crowd to blow their noses on John P. and Chris's as they were passed back.)After the robes the band screwed round with O-man still high hating when Trey hit's these Three notes the band Immediately breaks out in this mentaly unstable laughter,and with ado then came the most mellow version of David Bowie ever known to fauna kind.They get through the opener and then in the first Jam Trey drops the usual and does this repeated lick that is beyond description but very cool.End of first set and I was dumbstruct and thirsty. 2nd set kept the mellow mode,for divided sky had to wait seconds for silence and he was pleased.Fishman get's a splinter and to show he will survive lays down the heaviest base drum into Caverns.(not that has any thing to do with his fingers but he could almost still keep time.) A great jam for everybody in Chalkdust then the smoothest A-train then and I'm going to say it (and maybe regret it) the best You Enjoy Myself ever.(now,now,hear it before I hear bout other's)agian to hard to describe, just it went from ultra quiet guitar&piano solos to explosions and the voice jam it seemed they just didn't want to stop. Enchore had the no mike rendishon(sp.) of Sweet Adaline where they stuck it to chris then rocky top. Why am I bothering to write this?For the same reason your still reading.Go ahead see another show better than this one,I dare you.The great thing is I know you'll find it.Real soon.(I'm Looking too) set I:Sloth,Hall&Solice,Stash,Squirming Coil,Landlay,Fluffhead(!), Sparkle,It's Ice,Didn't Know,(bathrobe dedication),David Bowie. set II:Tube,Divided Sky,Caverns,Mango Song,Chalkdust Torture,A-Train, Y.E.M.,Golgi. E:Sweet Adaline(Memories?),Rocky Top. I'll be looking at Portsmouth,hope to see you looking TOO!
