This setlist may be incomplete and out of order.  It is unclear whether this was a one or two set show. Phish performed on this evening after Col. Bruce Hampton and the Aquarium Rescue Unit ("ARU"), so it may have been only a one set gig. The only copy of this show that currently circulates seems to have a cut after Suzy, and the BBFCFM cuts. Trey teased the Popeye theme in YEM. Suzy contained a Stairway to Heaven tease from Trey as well as an Auld Lang Syne tease. ARU's Oteil Burbridge on bass, Jimmy Herring on guitar, and Jeff Sipe on trombone joined Phish for My Sweet One and Tweezer -> Dave's Energy Guide -> Tweezer. Trey quoted lyrics from MacArthur Park (Jimmy Webb) during the DEG, which was played for the first time since March 1, 1989 (275 shows).

nichobert This is probably my favorite pre-92 Tweezer.

It's really because of the DEG. But the DEG is absolute mayhem and it's spilling over on either side of it.

YEM, Fluff> Stash, Oh Kee> Suzy ("THAT BITCH" said with such venom it makes me thoroughly uncomfortable) Melt, Coil is a murderer's row. Brief insane MSO before Big Black Ebeneezer's Energy Guide hits and renders everything else obsolete.

sirchandestroy This was a one set show. Opening up for ARU and WSP. Fishman in full on Zero Man attire.

Review by thelot

thelot Decent audience recording. Not too far off from the master.

Things kick off with Golgi. They follow this up with a fantastic version of YEM. This version has one of the wildest vocal jams to date. “STOP IT!!” lol This pairs perfectly with Fluffhead. Inspired playing from Trey during Stash. Inspired Suzy with Stairway to Heaven and Auld Lang Syne teases. Solid Split Open. Coil has a pretty little outro. At the start of MSO the band invites some members of ARU to the stage. Jimmy Herring adds some fire runs to MSO. Tweezer is freakin’ siiick!!! Full on DEG tease during this demented jam! A wild BBFCFM follows suit. Unfortunately, the tape cuts about 2 minutes in. ;) The rest of the show is lost to Phishtory… Thank goodness somebody taped this little gem! Thank you mystery taper!
