Never have heard this show, and maybe never will. However, I gave it a 5.0 rating because this show was on the day I was born. Yaknow what they say ... Born on the day of a PHiSH show ... (Fill in the rest yourself).
I am the source of this setlist as I am the source of the tape and list sent to Andy Gadiel about 5 years ago.
I have recently re-transferred this show via Nak Cr7 24/96 and will seed it most likely on or near the 20th anniversary of its playing. We have the only recording made of this show as the band did not record this show.
Radio Shack mics were used.
Recorded to Sony d5's
by Terry Cartin and his partner Bryan Thompson.
The second side of the first set tape was not recorded or only exists on Terry's master. Bryan's tape was not flipped for some reason. And therefore we do not know what was played after the first 45mins of the first set. If someone has the complete list, come forward please. Terry's masters are in storage on a different coast of the USA and we are not able to confirm anything after the Tweezer from the first set.
The end of the first set is a mystery and the GTBT I sent with my list was just a memory of mine and I vauguely recall it. I may be mistaken and most likely if it was played, there were a few more songs before it. I was very drunk as it was $3/pitcher night and this was my very first PHISH show. I didn't know any songs, but I seem to remember GTBT as I knew that song and they ripped it up. I chatted with Page during setbreak for a good 15mins. Other than that..I don't even remember if I made it to the end of the show b4 leaving or not. This show marked the turning point for me. PHISH imo was not very good at this point, but this show changed my opinion very quickly. This was a very good one, and the only Syracuse show of the year.
A full Manteca occurs during the Tweezer so it should read Tweezer>Manteca>Tweezer.
