waxbanks You don't *really* need to hear any 1992 Phish, In My Humble Opinion - their transformation from 'great nerdy band' to 'great rock band' really kicked in in the second half of 1993, with wonderful transitional music like 2/20/93 inbetween. But the boys were playing well at this point and this show does offer the unbearably charming Linus'n'Lucy tease in Harry Hood. This is a keeper if you're a student of Phish history, and certainly '92-era Phish displayed an engaging postpunk/post-New Wave/post-prog alternaweird phenotype, but don't be surprised if you find the proceedings a little jokey-gimpy, especially in comparison to the Afrobeat-inflected dance machine the band became in the late 90's.
