Review by thelot

thelot The recording for this one sounds pretty good. While there’s still a nice amount FOH mixed in with the SBD, the overall sound is a bit flat. Also, the recording levels for the first half are pretty hot which doesn’t help. Fortunately the levels are perfect for the second set. With that said, this is still a solid recording for ‘89!

Set 1 is pretty straightforward for Fall ‘89 Phish. I enjoyed the segue from YEM into Fee. Mike’s Groove is nice as well.

Who Knows kicks off set 2! This is paired nicely with a Dinner and a Movie. Who Knows?? Who Do? We Do! of course! :) This slips seamlessly into Bag. Trey nails the lyrics to Reba for the New York audience. I would imagine family and friends were in attendance for this one. The transitions during this set are all flawless! Sloth>The Chase>Possum was well done. Trey introduces PYITE as PMITHE. They added “Hey!” to the intro. Everything else is is the same. Still no Storm Dance. In a Hole(What You Will) was up next with a new ending they had just worked on the night before. “I’m an A Hole!” lol ‘Gull Swerves and the Rest is Everything Else’ was an interesting addition to the Phish one-timer club. Before No Dogs Allowed Trey introduces his mother and explains the origins of this elusive number. Bowie closes things out with a wildly experimental version! Unfortunately the very end gets cropped. ;) This one tops 18 minutes!Fantastic 2nd set tonight!!
