dscott This show is a hidden gem! Everyone knows about the May, August, and NYE gigs, but the rest of 1993 is kind of amazing, too. This is a prime example.

Set 1 features a major highlight in the form of a Forbin's > Mockingbird narration for the ages. Alternately spellbinding and disturbing, you'll be somewhere different by the time it's over. Interesting melodic variation at one point during Mockingbird, too. Rest of the set is just typically crisp '93 Phish.
Set 2 is loaded with highlights, beginning with a Chelsea Clinton joke. A playful Reba features "baguette" lyrics and a tasty little diversion during the jam. Tweezer is impressively rocked-out. Coil features an exquisite piano solo by Page at the end. The showpiece is an absolutely glorious YEM. The intro is pure ethereal beauty, and then things erupt into a shredfest of a jam. The vocal jam's Darling Clementine infusion is simultaneously haunting and hilarious.
The encore is special in that Amazing Grace was dedicated to Trey's now deceased sister on her 30th birthday, which is said to be her 4th during a typically ridiculous BBFCFM. Good stuff!
