Review by ZapRowsdower

ZapRowsdower So this is my first review on .net and this was the first Phish show I ever attended. I'm an achievement whore now, so...

'96 Phish gets overlooked a lot in general, and this show is probably the most overlooked one of '96 - and for good reason.

This was Iowa, in the middle of November, there was a freezing ice storm happening during the pre-show and throughout. Because of this the lot scene was non-existent and the show was clearly cut short so the band could get the hell out of there.

The band knew the room was full of n00bs, so what they did was demonstrate many of their "sides" and "talents". Jamming is pretty by the book with little to no Type II to speak of.

What does it have?

Dark jam during Free
Banter from Trey before ATR, talking about how his mom is from Iowa and he has lots of family at the show
Trey on Acoustic for Talk
Nicely recovered flub at the beginning of Llama
Vocal Jam during Scent with Fish on Vacuum
Life on Mars
And an acapella encore

Lots of phishy n00b goodness, minus real deep jamming.
