Possum contained Charlie Chan and Random Note signals and a We Wish You a Merry Christmas tease. Page played a few notes of HYHU before No Good Trying. No Good Trying through Funky Bitch featured John Popper on harmonica.

Review by kipmat

kipmat Set 2 of this show was another one of the first few tapes I ever had. The music in solid and steady all the way through Divided Sky, but of course it is the John Popper guest segment that puts this show ahead of others from this era. This performance of Don't Get Me Wrong deserves to be more well known. The crowd is really loud and enthusiastic, especially for a soundboard tape. You can hear that the band is pumped up and responding to the support. And it was only going to get better...

jdisk [b]12/28/90[/b]
First set: definitely had its moments, ie Llama (raging; trey's non-stop solo over end lyrics), Forbins->Mockingbird (flawless; page escp creative and jazzy in forbs). Bit sloppy on others. Disappointed w/ both mike's and weekapaug. Both started off strong but ended rough.

Second set: Killer landlady. Slop returns in possum then *click*--> ABSOLUTE SMOKE JOB. [b]Squirming Coil --> Tweezer-->Manteca-->Tweezer- [/b] "why I listen to phish" moment. Transcendent full band jam out of coil --> tweezer. scream out/play manteca, gordo switches on groovy effect, solid jam, then tension/release through tempo slow-down, into tweezer to tie things up into pretty bow. Daring and creative; band pulls out early top-notch segment here imho. Love the Sweet One/Divided combo. Split on Divided though- Page/Mike superbly playful in 1st half; trey hard to listen to in the 2nd. No Good Trying- LOL contrast between the virtuosic page/popper dueling and the vac solo. Dont Get Me Wrong (last time played) nice 4 minute vocal jam (kinda like wolfman's). Funky Bitch=not too shabby.

Encore: Bouncing and HtH just dont work together. harsh contrast in styles.

Major Highlight (squirming through tweezer) + Highlights (llama, forbs/mock, landlady, possum, No Good Trying, Dont get me wrong) - hard to take down moments (end of mikes/paug/dividedsky) = 4.0
