Review by MrPalmers1000DollarQ

MrPalmers1000DollarQ Perhaps this is coming from a place of spoiled listening, but I found this show to be fairly underwhelming for an official LivePhish release. Like the Denison University show on 12/1/92, this one offers very little in the way of interesting jams, even among its biggest hitters, and instead feels like a pretty second-rate early 90s Phish show. From reading some of the existing reviews, though, it sounds like this was a night missing from the third-party tapers' archive, and can therefore appreciate Shapiro's efforts to fill in some historical gaps.

The playing across both sets is tight, regardless of the mundane (a relative term, of course) territory covered. The only major highlight I could take away from this one is a nice Colonel Forbin's/Mockingbird, which makes reference to the evening's significant lunar perigee in both Trey's narrative and the How High the Moon break. YEM and David Bowie offer up some strong, yet unsensational, jam material to lightly season the rest of the show, but pale in comparison to the peaks achieved elsewhere on the 1993 Winter/Spring tour.
