Review by DemandOpener

DemandOpener Average-good Phish from 1991 on display here. Not a lot of slop, as the band was finally beginning to round into their obsessively accurate form. By this point, we were also starting to see a more creative use of secret language. The Popeye theme teases no longer sound out of place, DEG briefly pops up in a pretty solid Possum, and the Random Note signal in Bowie is just perfect. Still, without any truly standout moments, it makes it hard to recommend a show like this. I'm going with 3 stars here.
