Review by BadPorkChop

BadPorkChop Something recently made me think about old times and I'd thought I'd share some good memories. Friends from Johnson College in Vermont turned me on to Phish about a year before and I had already been to a few shows before making the trek up to Maine for this show. We camped out overnight the day before the show. I remember Mike (I think) riding a motorcycle around the area people were car camping that night and hanging out a bit. It was very low key but people were having a good time throughout the evening. A short walk through the woods the next day to the field where a small stage was setup. Only two or three hundred people at the most but it might have seemed that way because of the size of the field. There were lots of people sitting on blankets and I was struck by the sight of all sorts of paraphernalia out in the open. Felt like a family affair with so many people connected in some way to the band although I remember plenty of non- Vermonters like myself. No adult supervision or outsiders. It felt like only people in the know. Very hot day as evidenced by Fish's pre-show announcement to be careful not to set grass/hay on fire. Not the best musically but I do count it as one of my fondest Phish memories. Also, Amy riding around on a horse made an impression. This was the show that convinced me that I should follow Phish west on the fall '91 tour where I caught every show from The Colonial Theater in NH to Colorado... but that's a whole other story.
