 Joke from Fishman.
· Theme from Leave It to Beaver tease in Big Black Furry Creature from Mars
Average Song Gap: 3.88
Notes: BBFCFM contained a Leave it to Beaver theme tease from Mike and a joke from Fishman. The joke basically went: "So there's this guy who's walking down the street, and he sees this dog laying there licking his balls, and he's talking to his friend and says 'boy, I sure wish I could do that,' and the friend says 'don't you think you ought to pet him first?'"
Songs by Debut Year:
This show was part of the "1991 Winter/Spring Tour."
You see? I thought that the show had started, and that Phish left the stage in disgust because they were bummed no one came. It turns out that that was the soundcheck (I don't remember FB being played as reported above).
Long story short, when they finally hit the stage at around 10:30, I was too exhausted to fully enjoy the show, having already been there about 3.5 hours.
The energy was intense and raw, listening back to the show, it reminds just how strong they were already. Trey and Paige are casually shooting fire from their finger tips, ripping off huge chunks of music, riding the runaway rock train driven by Mike and Fish.
As another long-time fan Michael Egan likes to say, "Right from the beginning, it didn't matter how big the crowd was, they jammed for thousands." Amen.
