The show features a young and ambitious Phish, playing one of its first runs of shows outside of New England. This is important to note because as the band was still in its "relative" infancy (this is before even Amy's farm) so were many of Phish's songs which at the time were still being perfected rather than explored.
That being said the quality of the show really is stunning, with the band still so early into its career. Each band member is incredibly tight throughout the entire show, however it is clear that Trey is really leading the entire show. The real selling point of this show however is its high availability in SBD quality. The quality of the show makes it an easily accessible glimpse at the band still playing small venues and tirelessly working towards making its name on the concert scene.
The highlights of this show are really the quality and percision by which each song is played, providing phans a perspective of how the bands "jam rock" sound of the early '90s began. That being said Harry Hood and Funky Bitch are the clear cut winners in this show. Hood is a must listen for any serious fan of the tune, and though only just over 11 mins the jam never feels rushed or cut-off. With its wonderful SBD quality, a standout Harry Hood, and an abundance of beautifully played Phish classics, I would highly recommend 11/4/90 for any fan looking to see what the band could do in the early days.
