Review by Wisejake237

Wisejake237 I stumbled upon a SBD recording of this show recently and it didn't look like anything earth-shaking, besides being from an earlier Phish era than I usually get into, but I decided to give it a shot anyway - and I have to say that this is some pretty damn good stuff. The recording kicks off with Foam, which is from the soundcheck, but is nevertheless a fully-formed and satisfying rendition. The Reba which follows Sweet Adeline at the top of the first set is a lot more laid-back and mellow on the whole than most later versions that I've heard - but despite being a little out of the ordinary, it's still a great version. The Ya Mar and You Enjoy Myself which follow are also very good. It's a shame that both The Divided Sky AND David Bowie are missing from the second set on the recording. Two of my favorite Phish compositions, so their absence leaves the second set feeling a bit empty. Nonetheless, what is hear is extremely enjoyable and well-played, to my ears at least. Great early Phish. Give it a whirl if you can find it.
