EducateFright I'm at a loss as to why this show was released through Live Phish. This is not a particularly outstanding show (from '92 or otherwise); to me, it screams average! The playing is, for the most part, quite tight throughout - which is wonderful - but back in '92 that was par for the course.
Fluffhead sounds nearly perfect to my ears... nearly. Mike's contains a promising, murky heavy-metal excursion after the first breakdown, but Trey is quick to pull in the reins.
After set 1, I was really hoping to hear something jaw-dropping in set 2, but it never came. Love You contains some humorous banter from Fishman: “Are you awake? Just checkin'. Have you been drinking? Thought so.” His overly-flatulent vacuum solo is worth hearing. Baby Elephant Walk put a smile on my face the first time I heard it – I can picture a dumbfounded audience scratching their heads while simultaneously laughing at the absurdity of it all. I will admit that this Bowie is quite good.
If you're interested in this show and pondering whether or not to shell out the cash for the sbd download, you might consider seeing if you can pick up a suitable aud to add to your collection instead. This show would make a suitable introduction to the '92 sound, but if you're already familiar with it, then nothing here is going to surprise you.
