My very first show! I didn't know a single song, just went with a friend of mine because I had heard they were good. I'd never experienced a concert like this before and I was immediately hooked! Went home, bought all the CD's up to then (I believe Rift was the latest then) and listened to them over and over. Then bought tickets to fall tour ;) My life has never been the same :)

westbrook First set highlights include Divided Sky, Guelah Papyrus, and the combo of Tweezer>Lifeboy that typically comes in the second set. A nice Mike's Groove makes up the bulk of the second set; I really like when they do Yerushalayim Shel Zahav. The Slave near the end of the second set is great. I would say the Slave is the best performance of this show. Highway to Hell is a fun way to end the set. This is a fine show, but I wouldn't put it in the top tier of Summer 1994 shows.

soundboy1 The first show of 94 summer tour for me. My first real summer show since previously I had only seen one set shows in the summer. By this point I was totally hooked. I had been listening for a few years and was familiar with most of the tunes. I wasn't really in a position to say this version was great or that version but I was thoroughly enjoying the music. This was my first Slave and it's such a fantastic song. McGrupp was also sublime and gave me the willies... I remember at this point hating FEFY and Lifeboy though. I just didn't understand why they played slow songs... I still really prefer the high energy dance stuff but I know now that dynamics are very important when applied right...

Wazoo This show was my first of the summer and my 5th overall. I was also introducing a new friend to Phish at the show – an aspect of my life that was taking on increasing importance at the time. In the end, he enjoyed himself – and even went to a number of other shows – but never really got it (I am pretty sure the other shows were about meeting girls). Oh well, you can lead a horse to water…

This wasn’t a bad show – pretty average for an interesting point in their career – but more of a song-oriented than Jam-oriented show (and I am pretty much in the longer the better camp). As a personal recollection, the moments that stick out for me are the Scent of a Mule for which I had never heard a live version (and therefore ever heard the duel) and the Yerushalayim Shel Zahav which was haunting.

Listening to a pretty good audience tape of the show, however, I find nothing too out of the ordinary - on the high or low side - although it may be worth noting that this is the first of two times (7-10-03 @ Shoreline the other) that Rift is played as an encore.

The highlights are what you would expect – Tweezer in Set I and Mike’s Groove in Set II.

The short Tweezer has Trey with some pretty ferocious solos and maintains a dark groove throughout – which is lightened by the > Lifeboy (which is nearly as long as the Tweezer itself).

Mike’s has a pretty dark first jam which leads into simple. At this point – it was debuted only two months earlier – Simple was played out of Mike’s, though it was not jet the middle of the groove sandwich it would later become, and goes back to Mike’s for the second jam before preceding into Yerushalayim Shel Zahav which is really cool to hear. Listening to it now I recall this moment as giving me goose-bumps. The Weekapaugh has interesting mini-antelope and 2001 jams.

Now that I listen to it again, Slave brings it as well.
