DollarBill This was an audience bootleg which needs a little EQ-ing to get used to it. Especially after hearing a lot of soundboards from this period.

Good first set Suzy opener. My Friend is getting better each performance. Poor Heart and Landlady are good. NICU still has the middle section, please Trey I'm begging you! Sloth is a little loose, hasn't been played in a while. Divided and Guelah are good. Sounds like Fish is going into Maze or Bowie while Trey leads them into It's Ice. Ice and Horn are also getting tighter each performance. IDK features Fish as "the Piper sans bag" for the last bag-vac solo, funny stuff as usual. Possum is full of teases and Secret Language again, even Lavern and Shirley for Milwaukee.

A wacky start to the second set with a sloppy, but funny Sanity and Buried Alive. Leading into a nice Wilson. ATR is really tightening up. This is a good one. My Sweet One has a long intro. Mike's starts off with Trey and Mike doing funny extra lyrics. Almost sounds like Page is teasing It's Ice in the jam. Hydrogen is a little shakey in parts. Week is good. Mound is also starting to settle in, there's still a few warts. Lizards is good, leading into a false start on Llama from Fish. Good Llama though. Full on Cold as Ice from all three guys tonight. Terrapin actually has, what you could call, a good vacuum cleaner solo! As weird as that still sounds. Golgi is a great closer.

A lot of Mango requests from some guy falls on deaf ears as Page launches into a nice Lawn Boy. GTBT is rocking, really rocking! And after a brief pause, they must have had extra time to do a solid Rocky Top.

Really good show. Would love to hear a soundboard version.

kipmat I listened to 4/30/92 Madison and this show back-to-back today. Before the second set on 4/30/92, the emcee mentions that tickets are still available for this show at the Rave ($12.50, lol). At the start of this AUD, the hall sounds relatively empty, although a few kind souls are attempting to make up for it. But bless their professional souls, Phish goes up on stage and does what they always do: put on a rock 'n' roll show designed to win over audiences. And it pays off: the enthusiastic crowd calls the band back for a second encore. A fine tribute to the band's charisma and professionalism during this period in their career.
