Songs by Debut Year:
This show was part of the "1991 Winter/Spring Tour."
Following this promising start, the band runs through a bunch of standard versions of (at the time) standard tunes: Magilla, Dinner, Bouncing, Foam (actually pretty sloppy and cuts out halfway through), and a pretty hideous version of Carolina. A solid YEM gives way to a fine Coil and a smoking Chalk Dust, although I am still not a fan of the "soft start" that precedes the early version of CDT.
I didn't think much of the Jam Chart Reba from this show, further proving that I have terrible taste in Rebas. The rest of the show is pretty ordinary, but it's got some weird song selection and the entirety of set 2 doesn't really fit together as a result. It's amazing to go back and listen to these older shows now that Phish really knows how to make a set flow.
The Prison Joke is, of course, hilarious. I'm going with 3/5 stars; check out Paul and Silas, Chalk Dust, and maybe Tweezer/Reba.
