Phish.net is a non-commercial project run by Phish fans and for Phish fans under the auspices of the all-volunteer, non-profit Mockingbird Foundation.
This project serves to compile, preserve, and protect encyclopedic information about Phish and their music.
The Mockingbird Foundation is a non-profit organization founded by Phish fans in 1996 to generate charitable proceeds from the Phish community.
And since we're entirely volunteer – with no office, salaries, or paid staff – administrative costs are less than 2% of revenues! So far, we've distributed over $2 million to support music education for children – hundreds of grants in all 50 states, with more on the way.

At any rate, the show is very well played, probably one of the best ones from the 1st 1990 Colorado jaunt. That's not a particularly difficult feat, but for historical purposes, it's definitely the "must-hear" show of the run.
Anyway, the first set is pretty average for the time period, although it does include a rare trombone+vacuum I Didn't Know, the early version of Cavern (I hope they change the lyrics soon!), and a sharp Weekapaug. Nothing special, but again, a better sounding tape than literally anything else from this particular tour.
The second set goes about as swimmingly as is possible for this time period, with a great YEM and some amusing stage banter regarding Mike's bass-string-changing skills. Also, it's SO NICE TO HEAR GREAT SBD QUALITY Bouncing, BBFCFM, Esther, etc., after so many poor quality recordings of those songs. It makes this average-good show more refreshing after slogging through dozens of 1990 tapes. I'm going to go with 3.5 stars here. While the show lacks a true standout jam or moment, you might as well listen if you're looking for something representative of their first 1990 trip to Colorado.
