Ginseng Sullivan and Nellie Kane were played acoustic and without microphones. Amazing Grace was also performed without microphones. The beginning of My Friend featured Trey on acoustic guitar. There was a vocal jam during Paul and Silas in place of the second guitar solo. Baby Gramps joined Phish for YEM’s vocal jam, as well as the Phish debut of Nuthin' But A Nuthin', which featured Fish on vacuum. The opening act was Baby Gramps.

Review by kipmat

kipmat This show opens with an unusually-jammed AC/DC Bag. Trey begins with a rhythmic strum of the strings to count in the song, and the whole band adds improvisational touches in the style of August '93. Mike has his effects turned on for the solo section, adding a new dynamic that prompts Trey to hang on and develop his solo a bit more. This version is definitely an evolutionary step towards the 11/22/97 second set masterpiece.
Other highlights from Seattle include another terrific Stash, Possum, and IMO the best YEM of the tour.

DriedupGoliath To be added to the setlist notes, possibly? Some pretty funny stage banter.
After Nellie Kane, and before Amazing Grace, Trey tells the crowd "One more little thing here, we're getting rid of things, we're gonna do one here without any instruments, then the next one we're gonna do naked."

theghost 25th Anniversary!

I've had this show for many years and it's one I've gone back to this one many times for the tracks others have mentioned. They're in perfect August 93 form here, but I think this is one of those shows where it's the setlist that dampens its reputation. Opinions on the song choices are a pretty subjective thing of course, but this list doesn't have much pizazz to my tastes. Nor do the songs flow together very well IMO. But the highlights are as high as most of 8/93's others.

This Bag smokes as a rocker...Trey blisters it. I have limits on my tolerance of the most abrasive and deranged moments of the month and this Stash walks the line in spots, but it's a really powerful, psychotic version...must hear once anyway. Buried, Possum, MFMF...more high voltage psychosis. And as mentioned by Westbrook, the YEM is probably the best of the month ( the tour ender on 8-28 is a favorite too...this one is a little weirder). The segment from around 16:30 til the bass jam is like a lightning bolt down your spine. Page's beautiful Coil solo is the one truly timely song choice...like aloe on all the burns and abrasions from the show.

I'd like to see Shapiro kick down SBDs of the YEM and the Stash....and the Bag too if I had my way.
