raygaylord92265 Imagine Frank Zappa warming up for Phish playing Gamhendge with narration. At the time my friends and I called the Jamfantasy "Trey's Story Time." I always thought about the neat little story songs and reflected that "he should put all these cool stories together". Little did I know. Of course we all found the "thesis" recording not too long after this show; hearing narrative and music in either ear helped me to clear any static from the full "movie" in my brain. I have always enjoyed plays and cinematic endeavors, but none have ever equaled the movie in my brain produced by reading, or listening to story songs or albums. Trey's fantasy songs took me places only approachable if I were reading authors such as Asimov, or Zelazny, and yes of course, the favorite of every kid who painted trolls and orcs to move through a dungeon drawn on large square graph paper using the largest collection of dice known to mankind, Tolkien. Thus, this was the best Phish show ever. It put it all together. The recording is poor, I think I can hear Skinner counting quarters, his sister Co... giving a patron drinks and bar music, but I am telling you people that this show/ night was the best Phish show ever. Ask anyone who was there. Btw, I asked a friend who was there, and they incorrectly replied Beecher Hill Farm (Hinesburg); he did confirm my memory of the night, seeing Zappa at the Memorial, then the band hurrying down to Nectars followed by fans.
