Review by Bob_Loblaw

Bob_Loblaw A very youthful Phish playing garage band rock.

Part of the problem with decoding these super early shows is the terrible quality of the audio recordings. Anytime a glorious peak happens it singes and scratches your ears. But there's still a decent amount you can make out from this show. They are still quite rough in their overall form. However there are moments of euphoria in Bertha and the Can't You Hear Me Knocking Jam. They do a unique very slowed down and mellow rendition of Eye's that is cool for a single listen but boy am I glad the Dead didn't mess with that.

It's very clear in early tapes that Jeff is still very much the driving force and Trey is doing his best on rhythm and at times mimicking a Bob Weir type style.

Overall these guys are 19 years old and it's hard to knock their progression. Still some good stuff to check out in the middle.
