Review by paulj

paulj My fourth show, and the one that absolutely confirmed I'd come back a lot! Also, this show represents my only contribution to the HPB/TPC, which for years had the show listed at The Veranda and did not note the Hank Williams contribution.

My girlfriend chose not to come with me to Nashville for the show...and we were history within a couple of months. As stated by the first show reviewer, it was a very rainy day/evening. Most people hung out in their cars before entering the venue. I thought there were more than 300 folks there, but the main thing is that snagging great seats (all GA of course, after the announcement that we could go under the pavilion) were not a problem. I sat just in front of the sound board, along with a couple of med students from Cincinnati. He was definitely into it...she was NOT.

Overall, I remember this as being an incredible show. The musicianship was amazing (again, my fourth show, so I did not yet fully understand just how amazing Phish were). I've never cared much for "If I Could", so Alison Krause did little for me. (We knew this would be played 'cause from the lot we could hear them rehearsing.) Stash and Fluff were really good, but it was the Harpua--which I'd never heard--that grabbed me. The story was convoluted and hilarious. When Poster died, the guy from Cincinnati (who hadn't heard it either) and I high-fived and laughed like crazy, while his wife just rolled her eyes.

I sometimes wonder what happened to that couple.
