This show was a co-bill with The Joneses. Trey and Mike quoted Fuck Your Face and Minkin during the Melt the Guns intro. Have Mercy featured Jah Roy on vocals. Halley’s Comet featured Richard Wright on vocals. This show contained the first known version of David Bowie.

Review by DollarBill

DollarBill Nice early Halloween show with the Joneses. Ok recording.

Two Sally's again in the first set. I'm so glad they kept Camel Walk. Melt the Guns is a great cover. They should bring it back in the modern era. Sorry, but Halley's is a little rough for me with Richard on vocals. Back Porch Boogie sounds like a precursor to Ok Kee Pa Ceremony. Nice full band Shaggy Dog and early stripped down Fluff.

There was an interesting jam going into a really fast AC/DC. Too fast. Swing Low is nice. Mike is a little off during parts of Peaches. Ah, the first known Bowie is a little slow at times, but already shows potential. Great Have Mercy jam tonight coupled with Hood again. Sanity is funny as usual, but no Row Jimmy lick yet. Skin it Back is another great early cover that they could bring back. We should all read Icculus. Alumni sounds strange with no Jimmy Page now that Jeff is gone.

Check this one out just for the first known Bowie and I'd have to say some of the jams here are as good as any modern show I've been to lately. Some things never change, and in this case, that's really good.

Review by The_Ghost

The_Ghost What a packed show. The birthplace of David Bowie. The sound of the place isn't great, you can hear a lot of people talking. While the set list seems great like, Fluffhead closing the first set, it was pretty mild it was not the amazing rocking jam show it would be with later Phish. I don't care for this Halley's Comet, early, short, and sang by Richard Wright.

Highlights from this show include:
Camel Walk


Melt the Guns ->DEG-> Sneakin' Sally

Jam > AC/DC Bag

of course
David Bowie

Skin it Back > Icculus

Alumni Blues
