I was at this show, it was actually my first full show. I had seen them a day or so before open up for Santana. Blew my mind! I've got a soundboard recording and it is great to relive it. Reading the reviews above, I can agree that it was not the tightest show, but being my first, I didn't really notice. The 3 minute note that Trey was playing during Mike's, as refereed by DollarBill above, was actually a broken guitar string change, and get this, he changed the string while he was jumping on the trampoline with the smoke and strobes going full force. So sick, we were right in the front ceter. The Coach House had tables and chairs and we were the only table to break our table and chairs down and shove them under the stage. During the Weekapaug, Trey got up on the house speakers and jumped onto the stage while playing power chords. So amazing! I have not jumped off the bus since. Thank you Phish!

DollarBill Yay! A whole Phish show! As Trey mentions on the recording, the only one out west before the end of the Santana run, and before they take off to go to the studio for the Rift material. This is an audience recording. Not the best sound, needs more low end. Also, the recording is a quater step sharp making the vocals sound a little chipmunky. Not the best show either. There are highs and lows and some rusty parts.

Strange first set as I feel like we have three openers in a row with; Buried Alive, Poor Heart and a Landlady for Carlos. Not bad versions just not quite locked in. Reba had a few rough spots, but ends up being a great jam that seems to get cut off by Fish right at Trey's peak. Rift is similarly not locked in tonight as I wonder about the monitor mix. Wilson is a little rusty as it's been a while for this one. Sounds almost like a Sneaking Sally tease from Trey. Mike comes in a little early on reasonalbly tight ATR. Foam is kind of off in the begining and then gets cut off during Trey's solo. Most likely a tape flip. So then into a rusty My Friend intro which is very tentative sounding. The song itself is ok. Bouncing is pretty standard. Bowie has the usual antics and sounds like a "nanny, nanny boo boo" tease from Page? They kind of flub going into the actual song, but this is a really good Bowie jam. Great way to end the set.

On the recording it's funny to hear Trey asking if they will do the vocal opener to Suzy. "I'll ask Mike." he says after asking Page. Fishman then announces to watch out because Trey might grab his balls on this one. Suzy itself is good. It's Ice is pretty rough and just not locked in either. Tweezer fixes that! This is a rocking Tweezer with a weird ending that sounds like an aborted Walk Away tease. Esther is really good tonight. Mike's Song is rocking and weird as Trey holds a note for a full three minutes! Then Page holds on for more before a pretty good Hydrogen. Weekapaug is a good jam. A few spots in Horn, not too bad. Ah, HYHU is back and we have guitar and a guest drummer for a weird Terrapin, but aren't they all. This one is disjointed, but still funny. A smoking A-Train preceded by Flintstones is great on the back end of this show. Really good for the jazz fans. Rainbow is too funny. Rocking Cavern to close as Trey makes the announcements.

Nice Coil to send everyone home. Great Page feature.

Good energy but, very rusty sounding on a few tunes. They do need some time off.

MrJones I'm glad I'm not alone on this recording sounding kinda "chipmunk-ey". It's tough to listen to. But fun show none-the-less.
