Review by brendanmcauley

brendanmcauley I loved this show! I had not scene Phish in about 2 years or so since shoreline and one of the Vegoose festivals where they played in 2000 or so.
I was so intrigued by destiny unbound and many people thought it was a new song..I had been at a few shows in '89 and '90 where it was played and loved it- then it was off the rotation, but what was odd, was, having scene about 80 shows from '89-'94 I was on my own hiatus ( for some stupid reason) from the San Jose show in December of '94 until Shoreline in august or September of '98. I was just starting to see some more shows then they took the hiatus. When this show came to town; I was jonesing for some live Phish. The selection of destiny unbound as the second song of the show was unreal! The last performance of it happened to have been my b-day on 11-15-91. The second set raged and what I recall more than anything is Trey holding up his guitar at the end of Tweezer reprise and offering it up as a gift to the Gods in some odd way...it was 'hendrix-esque'..I was truly blown away by the jams and the showmanship of the band having not really scene them consistently since the early-mid nineties. The jams seemed extended n a more regea esque way and to no surprise soul shakedown arrives. I happened to have been at the Eureka, CA show when they played lively up yourself in '92...this was sick! Trey and the entire band was enjoying this and doing it well.
