Review by DemandOpener

DemandOpener In the early days, it seemed that whenever Phish returned to Colorado, they were more relaxed playing in an environment that likely felt like a home away from home. This show is no exception, and the setlist would have any fan today drooling. Though the show is short on improv and long on composition, the songs are all very crisply played and showcase a precision that was only just starting to emerge after years of playing songs well (Fluffhead, Reba, Split Open and Melt), but not having them down to an actual science.

Anyway, I give this solid show 3.5 stars. I will say that it's probably one of the better examples of the year (so far) of Phish bringing their already tight chemistry and otherworldly chops to a whole new level, so it may be worth checking out just for that (and the good Bowie/Tweezer, too).

thelot These Colorado matrix recordings are phenomenal! I wish every show pre ‘92 sounded this good.

They get the party started right out of the gate with Fluffhead. They follow this up with another Landlady>YEM combo. YEM is well played but pretty straightforward for the tour. Same goes for pretty much the rest of the set. Everything is well played, yet standard versions for this tour.

Set 2 kicks off with Suzy. Like the version in Tuscaloosa, Fish says “What a bitch!” Decent Melt. Nice string of songs from Jim through Tweezer. The true highlight of the set came during this inspired Tweezer. Lots of callouts to Chris and a strong jam. Fish’s vac solo during Terrapin sounds extra cool on multi-track! lol Well played Oh Kee Pa>Golgi to wrap up the second half. Beautiful A-Train for the encore followed by a fun BBFCFM…1…2…3, 1,2,3,4!!!
