Review by Wingtip

Wingtip The Capitol is an incredible venue, and this was my first Phish show. I was really into A Picture of Nectar at the time, and the band had a fun, shaggy energy that I think comes through on this tape. Divided Sky was the clear early highlight, but take notice of the Memories: the band was performing not just a capella, but *unamplified*, which is why you can barely hear them over the cries of "shut the fuck up!" They lined up at the lip of the stage, with their arms around one another, and sang into the beautiful red velvet and gold leaf and bobbing heads filling up the ramshackle old theater. You could actually hear them pretty well from the floor, but the tape doesn't quite pick it up. It was a great introduction to a great band, and I'm thankful I was able to see them at such an intimate venue.
