aybesea Well... this show is a hoot! I don't quite know any other way to say it.

I played in about a dozen bands during college [I'm the same age as Trey], and most of them sounded a lot like this. We played lots of dead along with our other hippie favs, all the while trying to make eyes with the girls and keep ourselves spiritually lubricated. Well, that's exactly what I hear in this tape. None of the refinement or panache that would separate a Phish from a third rate frat party band like mine.

It's still a fascinating listen, especially when you juxtapose it with the Nectar's show that comes almost exactly one later. Holy cow, what a difference a year makes!
