Review by MrPalmers1000DollarQ

MrPalmers1000DollarQ Every once in a while, it's nice to travel back in time to these pre-1993 shows when the band was playing college gigs, Page rocked an electric keyboard, and Guelah Papyrus was the Asse Festival. There's something endearing about the carefree goofiness of it all and the fact that people could only suspect Phish's future grandness, at best.

Although the act was still taking shape, one thing is for certain: the boys could always play. This entire show is full of brilliant demonstrations of musicianship (check out the entire Reba > Jim, Foam, Tweezer run for a taste). And even in the early days, the level of improvisation and collection as a group is impressive, as exemplified in the Night in Tunisia YEM VJ.

All around, a pretty fun Halloween show. I'm sure the kids at Colorado College were groovin'.
