Review by cheche

cheche That show was 20 years ago, John Lennon had died only 15 years before that show, how time flies.

We drove a long way from Indiana from college near finals week, and when we drove home after the show it was a blizzard and long scary ride as the Ricker was amped up and hauling it.

A few things I can clearly remember:

1. before the show they were playing some acoustic music over the PA and I loved it. I later found out through phish rec site that it was Strength In Numbers "Telluride Sessions" which introduced me to Bela Fleck and those guys. I thank Phish for this.

2. I remember the arguments and intense discussion about the chess move during the intermission, that was fun.

3. I remember Tweezer and Reprise rocking out. I was not a huge follower at the time but I knew this song. I also knew that it rocked and was as good as any classic rock song on the radio in terms of riff power. I was glad they played it.

4. Acoustic Army was a beautiful and unexpected kind of music that I appreciated greatly. We were sitting close and it sounded great.

5. I remember coming out of the show thinking "that piano player is really talented, like a classical musician or something, what an asset to the band!"
