Review by theghost

theghost So this show caught my attention from the "this date in phishtory" thing because a friend of mine (big phan too) was actually playing at the Stone Church while I noticed this. I thought, well I might as well give it a listen. And I'll be damned if this isn't probably the best thing I've heard from the eighties. First, as has been noted, this is a super recording for the time. It sounds like somebody took the time to do this right...maybe even a small multitrack thing...but it's mixed very well at the least.

But then, damn, this is a great performance. If I had to guess without knowing, I'd say this was from a couple of years later. Most of the eighties stuff seems to be bar gigs and parties, and they're mostly all pretty loosey-goosey affairs with clinking beer bottles and chatter with the audience about irrelevant things and inside jokes. They're fun to listen to once for novelty but not much more. This feels more like them trying to showcase their songs at the cleanest level they could achieve. And they did damn well. It's one killer song after another and they all have unique little twists that should tickle everybody who feels like they know the songs inside and out. This is an eighties performance that's worthy of rolling around your car cd player several times....there's true musical value in this one.

DollarBill Very crispy recording for 1988, not sure if that was helped during the upload, and this recording is mis-marked on www.phishows.com as 11-11-88. Pretty good playing overall. Check this one out, it doesn't take long.

Review by TheEmu

TheEmu Two things about this recording. First, everything is well played but standard, nothing too interesting to report. Maybe the Bowie (which I think somehow got tagged on to 11/11/88 when I transferred it, so ignore that part of my review of that show). Secondly, though, the recording is SUPER crispy awesomeness! I halfway tempted to bump it up to 4 stars just because the recording sounds so good, but I think I will again go three stars here. But if you only like to listen to super crispy sbd Phish, this is one to grab.
