Review by DemandOpener

DemandOpener At the time of this review, this show has been deemed a 2.7/5 by the .netters, and I can't for the life of me determine why. It's definitely a solid early Phish show. It rocks hard all the way through, and yeah, the audio isn't pristine or anything, and yeah, everything is a cover of some other band (except the "Camel Walk" which didn't make it onto the tape), but it's relatively easy to look past when it comes down to the quality of the music the guys were playing. The Jam -> Bertha is particularly awesome.

Yeah, this show is definitely worth a listen, if for no other reason than being able to hear some super early pre-Page Phish. The availability of practically every show on Phishtracks really is an incredible thing.

Other highlights include a great "Can't You Hear Me Knocking" (which is sadly cut off near the end of the jam), and a really nice outro jam in "Eyes of the World", which is an otherwise dullish tune. I'd also be remiss if I didn't mention the fiery "Whipping Post" jam. Good stuff!
