TheEmu This definitely fall into the "average-good, nothing spectacular" category of '90-'91 Phish. Almost nothing that I find noteworthy, with the minor exception of an extra-long intro in Hydrogen along with "Misty Fields of Forever" lyrics. Some decent to good stuff (Weekapaug, Stash jam), some somewhat shaky stuff (Stash composition) and some kind of unpleasant stuff (first half of Possum). Must have been hot, as instead of calling for songs, after Stash you can hear people calling for air conditioning. Also, Trey mentions that someone had been calling all summer and leaving hotline messages saying that they had to play The Curtain at Skidmore. So, there ya go...back in the day, you didn't even need to bring a sign! Three stars for this pretty average show.
