Notes: This was a free show. YEM and Possum featured I Love Lucy theme teases. YEM also featured an infamous "no gerbils in your bottom" vocal jam. The theme from Rawhide was also quoted in the vocal jam. Buried Alive featured Jamie Janover on didgeridoo. Self, Bitchin' Again, and Crimes of the Mind (the last two Phish debuts) featured The Dude of Life, and Bitchin' Again also featured Sofi Dillof. Self was played for the first time since September 13, 1990 (132 shows).
Songs by Debut Year:
The setlist for this show is huge! My favorite parts are Poor Heart (Trey is really well practiced and rips those bluegrass licks like it's nothing), YEM (the vocal solo is quite humorous), the last three songs of the first encore (It's fun to hear them play with some good friends. Also, Crimes is really a damn strong little rock tune, I always enjoy it when it pops up.), and the Hood, which surprised me and is quite strong. Everything else is played well too, those are just the parts that I was inclined to comment on.
This is a great showcase of very early 90's Phish. Heartily recommended!
The overall show seemed to be fairly laid back, no excessive heavy jamming. I did not like the Dude of Life encore set, though I do like the song - Self - and - Crimes of the Mind - I just don't like the voice of that dude.
I laughed out loud at Trey telling people to get directions from the burrito truck! Trey does love those burritos.
I could be wrong, but I read about this show once in a book written by a guy that followed Phish around for a bit as his job as a writer for RS mag (could be WAY wrong, memory is foggy) He said that there was a party after the show but then it started raining on all the equipment. Not sure if this is the same free show at Amy's Farm or not.
Anyway a great show and well worth a listen.
