soundboy1 So Day 2 of my Florida tour is kind of hazy. The Florida scene at this point was very very small and very pure. Lots of Deadheads checking out phish and probably not too many folks who were really into the band. This can lead to a great show when the boys turn it on though. And at this point they pretty much turned it on every show. The touring scenes was also really small and pretty much everyone knew everyone.

The venue held 1200 people and I remember being very close at this one. With these old theaters the ushers weren't equipped to deal with people who would simply not sit in their seats. After awhile they would just give up and let everyone enjoy themselves. God I miss those days.

So I listened to this show before I wrote this. I remember at the time thinking it was a good show but nothing special. Listening back now it sounds fantastic. The opening trio is very smooth and complement each other very well. The Mike's Groove is also fantastic. This was the show where I first got Simple. Before i couldn't really understand it but this show kind of hammered it home...

Harryshappyplace While nothing really in particular stands out from this show, it is still a very solid, all-around great one. From the opening notes of Fee you can tell they are feeling good and ready to throw down. The first set is very diverse in my opinion ranging from storytelling in Fee and Lizards, high energy hosing in Disease and Antelope, a dash of bluegrass in Old Home Place, the intricate windings of Foam, to the silliness and fun of Mango Song. This set epitomises the different faces of Phish all while imploring great flow and execution.

The second set is pretty standard '94 stuff opening with a typical 2001 and quickly moving into Mikes. While Mike's through Weekapaug is fairly short, it never lets up on the energy and rocks the entire way through, and they seem to love belting out Simple. They cool things down with a fun Sleeping Monkey and go into a well executed Curtain before popping off a good Mule. The show ends with a shorter but super sweet Slave that peaks ever so perfectly.

Good encore with the boys showing off more of their acapella > acoustic > electric talents.

Give this show a listen, you won't be disappointed.

I was doing my taxes and felt compelled to stop for a moment just to acknowledge the Antelope from this show as I just listened to it for the first time in a long time. Quite the rager right there. This whole first set is just oozing with intensity just like 6-18-94. Not commenting on the second set now since I am going to go back to taxes, but give this show a whirl.
