Earlier in the day, the Colorado Buffaloes football team had played the biggest game of the season against arch-rival Nebraska in Lincoln. Colorado running back Eric Bieniemy (despite fumbling 3 times) scored four 4th-quarter touchdowns and the Buffaloes won 27-12, setting them up for a chance at a national championship (which they won). Boulder was buzzing from the big win, and the excitement made its way into the show that evening. Trey dedicated Run Like an Antelope to Eric Bieniemy, and Fire to "Ralph the buffalo" (actually "Ralphie", the CU live buffalo mascot).

DemandOpener The Fall 1990 Colorado run seems to be much better received than the rest of 1990 for a lot of What does this mean? Well, I have a feeling it means that much of that are scoring these shows have not listened to most of the rest of 1990!

While there are some good things to be found here (including a fantastic AUD recording that is cleaner than just about anything else you could hear from this era), this is mostly just another 1990 Phish show. Apart from an early, well-played Llama, and tight performances of just about every Phish standard (see: Possum), there's just not a lot to sink your teeth into. Give it a shot, as usual, if you're looking for an example of what the band was like during those years where mega jams didn't grow on trees. Well played songs by the greatest band ever, but not much else. 3 stars.
