Review by KingDisco

KingDisco Ah the 1992 California run. It is easily the most consequential trip to this point for the young band and the energy is palpable no matter which show you spin.

Everyone has their favorites but this is the one to seek out IMO. It will deliver on the quirkiness and oddball antics that define pre-1993 Phish. Some Yaz references and Secret Language and this show is pretty boilerplate for 1992.

Where it really shines is the crumbs that lead us to see the future. Tweezer is great, not for pre-type 2 heyday but for any era. The band is tight and ready to take it off the launchpad. A Mike's Song is where we stand years ahead of the time. Multilayered and tight. Its incredible that they cover so much ground in about three mins of jamming.

There are more sacred Cali shows from 1992 but this is the one that can give you a sampling of how things were to that point while also showing the glory days ahead.
