Review by brendanmcauley

brendanmcauley This show symbolized to me that the small days of Phish were over for sure and that this band was 'for real'. I should have known that on Halloween '89 at my first show but it took some shows on both coasts and some travel to be fully sold. I would only see one more show this year- San Jose in December, then no Phish until summer of 1998 for reasons which I still question now.

So my review of this show: antelope stands out as being a crazy jamfest. Trey screamed "set the gear shift to the high gear of your soul..." and then the show just blazed. I am not a fan of Harpua- and this is why this show gets 4 out of 5- Harpua was very long and intricate and conversational. But the 'new songs' like 'sample in a jar' and "DWD" were interesting at the time and their new jams were welcomed. I still recall standing on the ski slope and seeing the bandlook almost excited to see so many fans. This show was unofficially released (bootlegged' in an album and I recall seeing it in Rasputin's in Berkeley years later called, "Back Home'...i bought it at the time...
