This solo acoustic set was part of the Newport Folk Festival. This show featured the debut of the Anastasio/Marshall originals “If I Could Be a Sailor” (dedicated to “everyone on the boats out there”) and “Peggy” (dedicated to Tom).

brains481 This show, one of the first for a newly-sober Trey, remains one of my favorites of his solo work. The crowd are respectful, mostly silent throughout and grateful to hear Trey singing well, accompanied solely by his masterful acoustic playing, sometimes singing along (like when all the Chicks in the froooont row duet/scat along with Trey during Bathtub, which is just awesome) to some of their beloved deceased band's greatest hits ,or lack thereof. Ah, well. They're the greatest to them.

This, along with the solo acoustic element, gives the show, despite the large attendance, a very communal and fun vibe, and remains a captivating listen. Little did those in the crowd know that less than a year later, Phish would be back, but Trey's renewed vibrant state here must have given them one hell of an indication.

Review by muchado

muchado The most memorable part of this show to me is the musical crowd interaction on "Bathtub Gin". The crowd lends their voices for the "doo-do do do do-duh duhnt do duh nuh nuh nuh nuh duhnt do duh nuh nuh nuh duhnt nah nahs". I was close to the stage and loved looking back at the audience during this segment as the random clusters of voices emerged and joined together. It was a day time set with a boat laden backdrop with an audience comprised of all types. This segment gave away every Phish fans hiding spot amongst the crowd.
