DollarBill Not much else to be said about this one that the other reviewers didn't cover.

Great first set playing Fish is introduced as the Yo-Yo Ma of vaccuum cleaner playing in IDK. Page finally stretches out his solo in Maze! If there is a weak spot here it's the Bouncing. Very cool Catapult in Bowie.

Great second set. Lots of big songs YEM through Tweezer. Solid!

And we only have 2 minutes left! Says Fish for the encore.
Great show.

MiguelSanchez I love this one. In fact, it might be my favorite show of the year. it is pretty freaking solid from start to finish. now, can you imagine a phish/wsp double bill at the warfield not being sold out now-a-days... or hell, even 2 years later.

set one gets cranked up appropriately with a nice run away jim. they go onto really nail foam. sparkle keeps the energy up before really cranking into a fiery stash. trey digs deep on this one before bringing it home. i didn't know is good fun, and i've always liked cavern midset. reba and maze offer some really nice back to back exploration before a very standard bouncing. then you get a very nice landlady that finally delves into a nice murky bowie/catapult bowie. side note, many tapes of the stowe vt/'92 santana show have this bowie/catapult/bowie as a filler. it is usually marked as being part of the show, but it is not. anyway, trey and page are rock solid on this one.

set 2 is a whole lot of fun. trey wails on this brother. an early set yem blows up. gordon and fishman are very tight on this one. then they go onto bury fluff head. coil works out of fluff head. then they crank up a fun '92 tweezer. it is very tight and focused. good jamming. they make a nice little twist with a good version of uncle penn. fishmand does his thing in rosie before a rousing tweezer reprise shuts her down. great set with non stop fun and action.

(Published in the second edition of The Phish Companion...)

I had driven back from Santa Barbara to Santa Cruz after the Anaconda show, and only got a few hours of sleep before getting up to "rally the troops." After the Anaconda show, I was anxious to get everyone on the bus, so I packed my car with heads and drove up to the city for the show. Not one of the five of us had tickets, but the show was far from sold out so we were all able to score tickets at the box office. Gordo and Fishman were hanging out in front of the Warfield, so we started talking about the Anaconda show. They both agreed that it was the best show of the tour (so far) and that they both had a great time.
When we finally made it inside the Warfield, the place was pretty empty. The whole show was GA so you could go wherever you wanted. We chose to sit in the balcony, which remained mostly empty throughout the night. Widespread Panic opened with a set that lasted around an hour. It's still the only WSP tape that I own, and the best set I ever heard them play. The place was on fire, and we were really looking forward to what Phish would do.
Again, another solid show, still on many people's "must have" list of shows. I don't remember much specifically about the show itself (I let myself get pretty "out there" for this show), except at the beginning of the second set they brought out a bathtub and had various people get in and out of the tub during "Brother". "YEM" and my first "Fluffhead" were amazing, and so was the "Tweezer" sandwich.
We went back to Santa Cruz that night, brains still fried, to get ready for the next show: a free one at Stanford the next day.

After finally catching on to the whole Phish thing back in the previous October at the Catalyst, I couldn't wait to see them again. I was surprised that they were booked at the Warfield; I really didn't think they were that big of a draw. As it turns out, you could get tix at the door, and there were probably only about 500-600 people there. My friend and I were kicking back at the balcony, but I think we could have gone anywhere we wanted that night. The Warfield is usually set up do that you had either reserved tix (upstairs) or GA (downstairs), and you couldn't switch up during the show. But I saw people coming and going from the balcony all night.
With a nice SBD circulating since the 90s, there is no need to go into too much detail about the playing. But I will say that they were on fire this night. A lot of people were buzzing about the night before in Santa Barbara, so expectations were pretty high. They did not disappoint for a second.
I was never into Widespread Panic, but their set was pretty good. I just wanted Phish, so nobody would have made a good opening act for me this night.

There are a lot of highlights in this show for me. The most obvious are the Bowie, Brother, YEM, Fluffhead, and Coil.

Just another night that cemented my love for this band.
