I studied music at the University of North Texas from 1993-96, and I knew a couple guitarists who were planning on going to this show (The previous week was finals week). I didn't hear about the legend of this show until I came back and talked to the two guitarists, who now had Hoist and Rift on cd and Phish stickers on their guitar cases. It sounded cool, but I was skeptical. A couple months into that semester, I heard Junta and fell in love.
As with many fans, the second set of this show was one of the first sets I heard on cassette. This noob loved all the covers of classic rock songs that I was familiar with, and I still appreciate the band's approach to covering other artists. Listening to it today, I can hear the band's confidence in their musicianship taking a step forward from 12/31/93 and 8/13/93. This show makes a great LivePhish release, and even if the band never plays another note, I'll always have 5/7/94 to lift me back to the heavens.
