Lawn Boy was subsequently played at various points in Cavern. The Old Home Place and Nellie Kane were performed in the acoustic configuration. Prior to Nellie Kane, Fish took a mandolin "solo" (playing a scale) which was followed by a HYHU tease.

Review by westbrook

westbrook This is an underrated/overlooked gem in my opinion with a great setlist and some fantastic jams. I love a My Friend My Friend opener, and this one is quite long and makes an exciting start to the show. Scent of a Mule and Guelah Papyrus (another favorite of mine), keep the momentum going before a strong Split Open and Melt. Bouncing Around the Room serves its purpose here and then we get the 3rd to last Landlady ever. The following Maze is a blistering rendition with great tension/release action. The Lawn Boy cool off is definitely warranted after such a hot Maze, and the set-closing Cavern/Lawn Boy mashup is a real unique treat. It's reminiscent of the Cavern/Wilson/Cavern sandwich from 7/13/94 . Overall, this is a strong set. You can't really ask for more out of a 1st set.

Peaches gets things going in the second set before a three song segment of grade A Phish. The segment begins with a huge and exploratory David Bowie, which clocks in at 26 minutes and includes some extensive audience participation during the jam. The hauntingly beautiful Yerushalayim Shel Zahav fits naturally after the monster Bowie, and the magnificent Slave really seals the deal on this great run of songs, before moving on to some "lighter" stuff. After Poor Heart and Julius, Mike takes the lead with a couple bluegrass tunes, which I always enjoy. Adleine, YEM, and Golgi are average, but this show has already cemented itself as a 5 star show in my eyes.

Highlights- Split Open and Melt, Maze, Cavern/Lawnboy mashup, Bowie thru Slave.

Review by Raible

Raible A typical Fall 94 show (not a bad thing - there are so many outstanding shows from this tour that even what would be considered a good show these days gets lost in the mix), even if the set list isn't the best you've ever seen.

Parts of the second set of this show are documented in the beginning of "Phish: The Bluegrass Sessions" documentary on YouTube (9 parts).

Review by Miguelito

Miguelito Another strong and interesting Fall ‘94 show, this one has a lot of highlights with one pretty significant jam that elevates this show. Opening with MFMF, which is my favorite placement for this tune, is a promising start. The Jam Chart describes the outro jam as evil, which is aptly put. Scent and Guelah that follow are both solid, leading to Melt, keeping the energy high. The Landlady that follows is fun, and then we come to Maze where things really take off. This version doesn’t disappoint, leading to a frenzied and chaotic peak before concluding. The Cavern that closes the set is worth mentioning as 1 of only 3 that get Jam Charted.

Set II opens with the ever-welcome Peaches. I love the placement. And then comes the Bowie, which is a fantastic piece of improvisation. This was just one of several significant jams that took place this month, which is clearly an important month in the band’s evolutionary development. And while I continue to rank the 12.29.94 version as my favorite Bowie, this one kept my attention throughout and this version’s importance shouldn’t be overlooked. As far as I can tell, it was the longest version played up until that point, only to be surpassed on 11.26.94. If you’re a fan of jammed out versions of Bowie, this one is worthy of your attention.

After that monster we get a lovely Yerushalayim Shel Zahav followed by an excellent Slave. After a few breathers the band closes out this pretty packed set with YEM, which maintains the excellence found in the rest of the show.

Overall this is a really great show with some major highlights, particularly the Bowie which is worthy of several listens.
