Review by fhqwhgads

fhqwhgads I don't remember much about the first set of this show, though Stash and Maze were surely on par for Summer '94, with its relentlessly reinventive vigor in composed portions and jams alike (Type I jams, in this case.) The second set is memorable to me for the "verbal jab by Fish" about Trey's upcoming wedding to Sue (née Statesir), as well as the Harpua with the "Your cat got hit by a comet" narration. 2001s back then were not typically variable in many ways, often serving as a Set-II opener, but this one has especial significance, as explained by the show notes. Summer '94 sees a decidedly Trey-led Phish, with his authoritatively virtuosic guitar taking the music in newly explorational directions following the watershed of August '93 and its introduction of nightly Type II to the repertoire, but I encourage you to listen carefully to all 4 band members, as Mike, Page, and Fish were all doing really interesting things, as well.
