This show is really well played from top to bottom.I'm from Chicago and know the Cubby Bear well. Especially 1991 Cubby Bear. It was a small place. When you listen to this show, you're going to be blown away by how good they sound and what a treat it must have been to be there.

I was there. It was my first show. I was absolutely dumbfounded. I remembering thinking to myself, these guys are incredible musicians and why the hell aren't they playing the Rosemont Horizon. Go download this show. Listening to it for the first time in a long time, I can easily say it's different than any other show I've heard. I had to double check the dates and set lists because how it sounds, doesn't add up to Phish in '91. Don't pass this one up!
Score: 4

My first show! I was heavily into the Dead at the time and came out to see Phish at the prodding of some good friends. I was hooked immediately. Two great sets in front of a couple hundred people. I stayed to the bitter end even though I had my first job interview early the next morning. Didn't matter...I wasn't going to miss any of it. Give this show a listen. Great early Phish and a Llama opener taboot!
