EducateFright As was rather typical for '90, the band's technical prowess really shines throughout this show. All the tunes on the set list with distinctly demanding composed excursions are played with excellent precision. If, for some reason (and I shall refrain from inquiring why) you are on a quest to seek out the best Ass Festival (er, I mean, Asse Festival), then look no further. Well, ok, I haven't listened to all the Asse Festivals that Phish has ever played, but this one sounds pristinely perfect to my ears. Along the same lines, Oh Kee Pah > Suzy is another highlight. If you've never heard a '90 Tweezer, or are already a fan of such things, then you'll certainly want to hear this version. The BBFCFM that appropriately caps off the show (it was Halloween, after all) is also one of the better versions I've heard: it's blessed with an extra dose of horror-show chills, screams, and terrors. I like it!
