Review by Davehengemania

Davehengemania This was my first show. My best friend had been urging me to see Phish for more than a year. I had 2nd generation tapes of the two available albums at that time, Junta and Lawn Boy. I thought they were interesting. I liked Esther the most. So, anyway... I got a call from my sisters boyfriend that Phish was playing his college and I should attend. I drove my Subaru GL up from Shrewsbury, MA. We partied a little too hard before hand and then walked the incredibly long distance (probably I could have rolled it was very close) from the dorms to the Bates gymnasium. I remember it being well attended but in those days you could walk right up to the stage and we did. It was a fairly high stage per my memory, and I was able to put my whole arms out on the stage. The band or school had giant fans on both sides of the stage, which were utilized in spite of it being winter. It was a good show, or enough to inspire me to see them again at Smith a week later. Being a big deadhead at the time I wasn’t recruited yet, but after Smith I was sold. For the 20 plus years since I have remembered them closing with Contact, so either that’s false memory or that got clipped from the tape. Anyway, this show isn’t essential listening. The playing is average to below average for 91. But still very listenable and enjoyable. I will always treasure it and I am grateful I got to see 6 shows that year. Thank you Phish!!!
