TheEmu Happy Birthday to Fishman! This is very solid show, both sound-wise and performance wise. The Bowie absolutely rages, although I thought the PA went out or something when they did the stop-on-a-dime trick, but then BAM, right back to the jam! SOAMelt also has an interesting start, and I think the other highlight, for me, was a pretty good Magilla. I didn't realize they did the Whole Lotta Love thing more than once (I listened to 2/19 and 2/22 backwards) so that was fun again, and Fishman wishing Debbie Reed a happy birthday before realizing she had left and then saying "To hell with Debbie Reed!" was hilarious, and the post Love You noodling -> Oh Kee Pa was kind of interesting. Still and all, I think this show belongs somewhere between 3 and 4 stars. I'm going 3.

I saw this show, having never heard of Phish at the time, but was reccomended by a friend. Probably about 100 people in the audience, and I remember thinking that it was the craziest show I had ever seen, particularly recall the "Whole Lotta Love" on a vaccuum cleaner....
