Review by Pitts

Pitts Which upstate camp were you working at PurpleWhale? My first show too, also working as a counselor at an upstate New York summer camp, 17 years old, with my Sunday day off crew. Hmm... I believe I was trying to avoid my upper village boys who were also at the show as part of a camp-sponsored trip to see a concert at SPAC (I don't think the camp directors had heard of phish at the time). Also sitting on the lawn, center fishman-side.

I remember Chalk Dust opener, Peaches, Rift and Julius. I distinctly remember seeing everybody clap during stash, which I thought was very communal.

During set break I remember walking around and seeing all those hoist album cover t-shirts.

I don't recall the Sample set II opener but for years listening on tape I had wished that I had been at Great Woods two days earlier not just obviously for the Gamehendge set but also to hear Trey ROAR on that show's Sample. I remember Glide and distinctly remember them busting into low rider during Mike's. I remember the Bouncin' (as it was one of their more popular songs at the time) and Page’s beautiful piano playing on Coil. A rockin' Golgi and I thought the band was so down home with Rocky Top. What a moment in time!
