fhqwhgads This is a great show, and I'm glad it's gotten the box-set treatment (St. Louis '93.) The Stash -> Kung -> Stash, Kung > The Horse is a superlative segment, with plenty of goofy improvisation and some nontraditional aspects (e.g., I don't think I had ever heard an acoustic Kung before!) In fact, it's pretty much spellbinding: just really focuses your mind. Roger's Proposal is sweet, and I hope Rog and Jen are still happily married. Tweezer in the second set is not as long as some of the behemoth Tweezers of '94 or '95 (or later), but it could've become one if it hadn't petered away into silence at the end. It was very enjoyable, though. (Note: anything from this era of Phishtory is "very enjoyable," because the band is precise and honed in on something that can possibly only be described as it.) YEM -> Spooky -> YEM is great, though the vocal jam is pretty long--but good, but good! Harpua is a lot of fun. One welcome thing about the box-set soundboard recording is that Mike is very present in the mix.
