There's a great video of this that was shot. I owned the VHS but some jerk stole it from me back in high school. Thanks to modern day technology you can watch it online. Here's a quality rip: - but if this no longer goes to a working version you should be able to easily find it online by searching for the name of the show as there are tons up there.
Score: 2

skippy11 WOW I love this one! my dad use to play me this VHS back when I was like 5! the whole show is pretty much standard 1990 phish but its cool to hear these songs played with such a fun whimsical approach.

Just saw this video on youtube. I can't keep my eyes off the mullet on the dude wearing a red shirt in the front row, in between Trey and Mike. It's glorious.

This show is fun to watch! There aren't too many videos out there with this much visual focus on the actual playing. There also aren't that many as clear as this one. The pixelation is great - you can see the band clearly, as well as the audience.

Another note, towards the end the camera shows a shot of the audience from the stage and this venue is awesome! There is a huge slope (of course! It's a ski club!) on which people are hanging out. Very scenic.

This was actually a raggae festival that had several bands preceding Phish. You can see the Jamaican flag that hung from the pavillion above the band in the video.

I spent most of their set just behind and to the right of the center camera angle, up the hill slightly.

Shae_Dougall It's funny what a great recording will do for an otherwise pretty average 1990 show. This show even has the benefit of being captured on video for us all to enjoy. It's very entertaining to *see* the songs being performed, and the video is must watch just to see what our guys looked like when they were younger. They bounce and move around a lot while they play, especially Mike, who looks like he's in the middle of recording a strange taebo video!

The show is totally standard fare. One set, no frills, no major jams, but it is another fun show from the era. Although the YEM was weak, Mike's hat definitely made up for it. Mike Gordon was a true hipster before hipsters.

As for the rest of the show, pretty high energy stuff (especially the Divided Sky!), but a lot of repeats. If you're looking for a show to listen to from this era, this one might be worth your time. It's not the best show from the month, but it's got a video, and that's worth something! 3/5 stars.
