mikthefish My first show, so not possible for me to be partial about the comparative quality of the music.

It was very crowded at the show, and rowdy too. I was told that the Phish show 9 months earlier at the same venue was sparsely attended. I guess a lot of people had been "educated" in that timeframe, me included.

Regarding the laughter from Trey during Cavern, it was actually that a girl jumped up on stage just in time to be nabbed by security at the exact moment Trey was singing "Taking turns at grabbing her."

I also remember lots of crowd participation during Forbin, including waving of hands in the air to simulate the waters of the Great Mississippi.

Loved the show, got me hooked for the next 20 years (and counting)....

DollarBill Continuing to mimic their Spring tour dates, we have the second of two 1992 shows at Mississippi Nights. Thirteenth show of Fall tour. First set edges out the second for me. The recording was a little slow making everyone sound a little tired at times.

Llama rocks for a good start. Foam has some rough moments and feedback early on as we get the sound EQ'd. Very dynamic jam, but a rushed end. Poor Heart was solid. Stash was just ok tonight, nothing too special. Glide was well played into a triple shot of new Rift material. All well played. Next would be the high point for me, as I love a good Forbin story. Great story from Trey tonight and a really good Mockingbird to follow. Cavern is a solid closer, with lots of laughter during the lyrics from Trey. Crazy stuff going on in the crowd? Great first set!

After mentioning squashed people, Suzy leads off second set. Nothing too special. Bowie's intro has the usual antics, and what was Mike doing between sets? He is all over the place in Bowie itself. Esther also sounds tentative. Trey even slips a word or two. A long Possum breaks the spell and lets them just jam. Ice is really weak tonight. Needs more polishing. Page to the rescue in a nicely played Coil. Trey asks the crowd to be dead quiet for Carolina with the usual shushing. Hood was pretty well played. Maybe a few bumps here and there. On to another version of Faht by Fishman. These are much more subdued than his usual rowdiness. Trey makes the HYHU rowdy instead. YEM has its problems early on, but the jam makes you forget all about that. Nice Mike solo at the end. The past three vocal jams have ended with the church choir harmonizing. New trend in vocal practice? Anyway, ok second set.

Double encore tonight starts off with a cool Fee. Very mellow with megaphone verses. Rocky Top is on fire! So fast they almost fall off the horse.

Nice show overall tonight. A few rough songs in there. The Forbin's story is worth the listen!

CavernMan Yep, that girl's timing in jumping on stage for the lyric was pretty amazing. Even more amazing. Her name was Suzy - or so she said. My buddy and I had talked with her back by the bar (surprise surprise) earlier in the set. She claimed to know the band. I guess she needed to remove her mask.

Note how the second set opened. So, I'll always remember this one as "The Suzy Show".

Phish was a lot of fun in small venues.
