Review by Flubhead

Flubhead According to the Pharmer's Almanac, there were only 12 people at this show! I love these Fall 1990 shows; they were exploring a bit more than in the Spring. Jumping ahead to the Set II highlights, Tweezer is stretched out ever-so-slightly with a meltdown at the end. So much frenetic energy at work here, they're really aggressive at this show. This is some of my favorite early 90s stuff, they were kicking a lot of ass and having fun on stage in 1990.

Like a previous reviewer said, I don't think people give 1990 enough thought, but there's hidden gems everywhere in this period - the Destiny, Forbin's>Mockingbird>Asse Festival combo is the highlight of this show for me. Destiny has a jamlet that's actually kinda neat and they really tear through the Mockingbird. The jam in Mike's is a nice treat too.

The mix on phish.in is pretty muddy - does anyone know of any other sources? I doubt that there could have been any tapers there, given that the audience was essentially the size of a baseball team. Still, I'll recommend a whole lot of shows form October 1990, and 10/7/90 is a good one that immediately comes to mind when I think of this month.
