MountainKung303 This show starts with an okay Loving Cup and basically most of the first set is kind of a slow burn. Reba heats it up a bit - slightly above average. By the end of the set they play a smoking PYITE and a Runaway Jim that's on fire. Trey throws down some runaway pickin'.

I think the second set definitely is what earns this show the 4.5 stars. Halley's > Bowie is awsome. The YEM has lots of teases. A nice Lifeboy slows it down then a powerful Rift speeds it right back up again. The Great Gig in the Sky makes it's debut appearance at this show which must have been fun for the crowd. An average version, it's a song that is played a lot in '93. Then they stopped playing it altogether except twice in '94 and once in '98 (the Dark Side show). Each time they played Gig in the Sky in '93 it got better and better. The Coil piano to mark the end of the 2nd set is a fine example of why Phish always has and probably always will end some sets with a solo by Page McConnell. The copy that I have of this show doesn't have Memories or Sweet Adaline. If anyone has a copy of this show with those two encore songs, they should submit it to the spreadsheet. They played Golgi Apparatus at their first know performance in '86. This is an old song has grown on me thru the years. This show closes with a really tight Golgi that for me, adds that extra .5 rating to the 4 stars.
