Review by MiguelSanchez

MiguelSanchez well, hopefully, everyone has heard this show already, but for those that have not, go get the box set! download the shows! anyway, this is possibly the best show they ever played. they brought the thunder this night. rumor has it, the band was in a tiff this evening. i guess they worked it out on stage.

anyway, the first set here is very well-played, but it is nothing out of the ordinary for 1993. weigh and sloth are nice treats. foam is very sharp, and trey is right on in possum, fluff head, and the divided sky. the real fireworks start in the first set. this is a particularly strange version of wilson. after a some what disjointed/hard rock type jam they dive into reba. this is a really nice exploratory reba, but it is merely a precursor to the mayhem to come. this tweezer is not the longest in the world, but it sure does rock. fishman is really funky. it also includes a nifty little "straight from the sewer rap." this quick, focused jam quickly turns into walk away. after page belts out a killer walk away, they drive right back into tweezer. this is my favorite glide. they dip some major tweezer teases all over this one. then they cranked up the mother of all wild mike's songs. i love the tweezer bass line in the intro to this mike's. most of the phish songs teased in here are listed above, but they way they weave it all together is genious. finally, they give you a nice breathe of fresh air with a hydrogen>vibration>kung>hydrogen run. this finally builds up to a killer weekapaugh that dives through have mercy and rock and roll all night before dipping into fefy. this song usually doesnt do it for me, but it fits really well after all that mayham. the rest of this set is pretty standard fare. the hood is good, but compared to what they had already played in this set...

great show. if you don't have it or have not heard it, you have no idea how good phish really is.
