Review by Dino_Stomp

Dino_Stomp This is a very, very solid '91 show, featuring Dave Grippo (of the Giant Country Horns) playing saxophone. on 6 songs spread throughout the night. Outside of the Grippo appearances, nothing out of the ordinary is in this show except for the Mike's Groove. Mike's Song comes with the 2nd guest appearance of the night in The Dude of Life on vocals. It's an interesting touch, although more of a comedic thing than anything else. Hydrogen is a little bit different as well with Page on his synth for a good portion of it. It adds a cool, slightly different sound to the song.

Now, the best part of this show was the Dave Grippo appearances. He comes in on Stash, Destiny Unbound, and Llama in the first set. Stash isn't very interesting, although it is fun to listen to. Destiny Unbound is awesome as always, and this is the first version I've heard with horns. This might be my favorite version! Grippo and Trey absolutely rip apart this Llama, with each of them taking solos towards the end. Amazing!
The second set features a solid Poor Heart > Curtain > Golgi, followed by Grippo coming out again for Magilla. This doesn't contain anything interesting other than standard jazz-phish. The last 3 songs, AC/DC Bag > Rocky Top, E: Antelope all feature Grippo as well, and are extremely fun versions without much jamming. But who doesn't love Rocky Top!? Especially with horns!

Overall, great 1991 show.
