Ginseng was performed acoustic. Crimes featured the Dude of Life on vocals. Constant Craving was quoted prior to 2001. Antelope included Brady Bunch theme teases and a Simpsons signal, while It’s Ice featured Random Note, All Fall Down, and Oom Pa Pa signals. The Horse featured Trey on acoustic guitar. Amazing Grace was performed without microphones. Also, while several versions of YEM have teased Oye Como Va, this version featured an all-out jam of the song. Contact segued out of the YEM vocal jam. During Daniel Saw the Stone, the band introduced and thanked each member of the crew. J.J. Cale was the opening act.

Review by ChavaUT

ChavaUT I heard the magic on the Berkeley tapes from Summer 2010 and decided to look back in time to see if the band had ever played at the Greek Theatre before. I found one show: Aug. 28, 1993 – the last gig of nearly non-stop touring since February. Let’s put this into perspective. Phish, by the time they reached the Greek Theatre at the end of Summer, had played over one hundred shows that year. That’s about a show every other day for seven months straight. And they didn’t miss a note.

Arrive Berkeley. As always, the boys end the tour with a summary of what has come before – and this one was flawless.

Find the remastered soundboards circulating.

First set highlights:

Acoustic Ginseng; a 15+ min. Stash that floats briefly into type II jamming before ending on a rip-roaring ending by Trey; Page’s Coil solo; and the Dude of Life’s first appearance on the West Coast during Crimes of the Mind. The band is sittin’ on top of the world by this point.

Second set highlights:

Another classic Antelope from ’93 with all the teases; It’s Ice>ball jam; a full-out Oye Como Va YEM jam and an outstanding segue from the vocal jam to Contact; Daniel Saw the Stone sees Trey, accompanied by Fish’s light bluegrass drumming, read a list of thank-you’s to all the crew members. He doesn’t forget anyone; not even the woman who busts folks selling bootleg t-shirts on the lot! Anyways, even the bus drivers of the two semi-trucks and two passenger coaches get credit, where it is rightfully due, of course.

Those who have made it into one of Phish’s four appearances at the Greek should complain of little in life. And anyone who wants to listen to how far the band has come in the past seventeen years, you should pickup these sbd tapes from Berkeley ’93, and juxtapose them with 2010.

Phish would go underground for seven months after Berkeley '93, only to appear for a quick New Year’s run, before resurfacing in April ’94 for another transformative year.

Review by brendanmcauley

brendanmcauley This was a special show for sure. I had never seen the Grateful dead at this venue and I could not help but think of great dead shows there. Well, this show did not disappoint. I had scene a slew of shows from '89-'92 having been from the east coast. Well is spent this summer at UCB in summer school and had a friend nearby one of the coops just down the street called, Cloyne. Great night for a show- and classic list. People don;t realize how rare Fluffhead was becoming, let alone hear it near the end of the first set.
Big Ball jam stand out to me. Phish had such antics. I enjoyed this show and what I must say is Phish has come a long way, but in many ways, the energy of the shows sort of higher, not that they were better- just that a young phish arriving on the scene was incredibly new sound to mostly deadheads. Classic list with all of the best tunes- YEM, Fluff, Antelope...NUff said- last of the great early days phish shows...I new Phish was starting to get big because I could tell they had money...they started wearing nicer clothes and stuff..

Raible A monster Stash (at least in length for that time), a Dude of Life appearance, plus a legendary and explosive Antelope make this one more than worth the price of admission.

As mentioned by ChavaUT, tasty soundboards of this show can be easily found. Helluva fun show to cap off one of the most legendary summer tours in Phishtory.
