MountainKung303The night before was also really good. Pete Wernick sat in on banjo and Farmhouse was played for the first time.

But this show is a great example of a "Magic" show. I remember tail gating in the parking lot of the McNichols Arena. That was my first Jäger experience and it has treated me well ever since.

I remember I went with my brother and our two friends. We got to talking about song we'd like to hear. I wanted a Tweezer. My brother wanted a YEM. Greg wanted to hear Reba. And Aaron wanted to hear this new song. I remember he explained that the short version was called "The Story of the Ghost", but they had a long jammed out version called just "Ghost". This I feel was the genesis of what is sometimes called "Phish 2.0" (for better or for worse).

As soon as I heard the Tweezer opener, I could feel it. If you've ever seen a show like this, then you know what I mean.

The entire fall tour that year rocked!
