Trey sang the verses of Fee through a megaphone. Weekapaug was unfinished. The debut of Chalk Dust Torture Reprise included crew introductions. This version of Simple appears on A Live One. The opening act was Dave Matthews Band.

Review by Miguelito

Miguelito Another show in my attempt to highlight some underrated or under-appreciated shows. This is a good show but doesn't live up to the standards set by its brethren from this tour which offered up some stunning, exploratory jams.

Fee is a fun, relatively unexpected opener. Rift follows. This song and all of the songs on that album will always have a special place in my heart as that is when I really fell I love with the band. This is a great, high energy version. The Stash that follows is another high energy, tight version but fails to break any new ground. The rest of the first set is more of the same, which is to say that it's all very good, late fall '94 Phish.

Opening set II, this Simple made its way onto A Live One. I question the choice, unless the band was seeking a concise version that wasn't connected to any other song. And that's what we get here - a stand-alone version that winds up being rather nondescript. Moving on, we get some more very well-played material including a Maze that hits a nice peak and a tight, very well-played Guyute. The rest isn't particularly noteworthy, which is a shame since the setlist holds such potential. Sometimes these last shows of a tour feel like the band is just checking off a list, and with short, but strong, versions of Mike's, 'Paug, and Slave, that's how it feels here too.

The Chalk Dust Reprise is a fun diversion with crew acknowledgements before we get to GTBT for the end of the show and tour.

Overall this is a decent show. Not mind-blowing, but well-played with few real highlights. I'd rate it a 3/5.
