Uncle Pen and My Sweet One through Rocky Top featured Russell Flanigan on fiddle. Trey quoted Fixin' to Die in the ending chorus of Antelope. Trey flubbed the lyrics to Cavern. This show featured the first known Phish performance of Let's Go, which replaced HYHU. After the second Let's Go, Trey introduced the crew (with Page providing "Charge!" teases) and dedicated Mike's Song to "Mindy" and the "spirit of Ian in the back of the room." Pete Schall's name was spoken in the Mike's intro. Page teased Fishin' Hole (aka The Andy Griffith Show theme) during Hydrogen. Trey quoted and teased Groove is in the Heart in Weekapaug Groove. A recording of Antelope through Rocky Top also circulates as 9/17/90, but it is believed that 2/4/91 is the correct date for this portion of the setlist.    
Fixin' to Die quote in Run Like an Antelope, The Fishin' Hole tease in I Am Hydrogen, Groove Is in the Heart tease & quote in Weekapaug Groove, Charge! tease

TheEmu This is the recording of most of set II of the 2/4/91 show, which circulates with the date of 9/17/90. The rest of the 2/4/91 show is currently unavailable on the spreadsheet.

The recording cuts in at the end of Antelope, with Trey quoting "Fixing to Die." Cavern has an amusing moment when Trey forgets the lyrics and totally "mmmmm mmmmms" his way through the brothel wife verse. I actually think the Fishin' Hole tease from Page at the start of I Am Hydrogen is kinda cool, as it fits right in before Trey starts the melody. A somewhat messy Hydrogen is followed by a short but good Weekapaug, and unfortunately, that may be the highlight of the set. Mike's Song is a feedback wank, and while I was excited to hear My Sweet One, Paul & Silas, La Grange and Rocky Top with the fiddle, the results were surprisingly average. (I hate Paul & Silas without the harmony at the end, it feels unfinished and makes me sad.) It's nice that Fishman likes the Cars and Kuroda's nickname is "Big Hands" but it's not enough to pop this up to three stars, IMO, so I'm just going to stick with two.

Review by thelot

thelot Horrible SBD source available for this partial second set source. Compared to last nights amazing audience recording this one leaves a lot to be desired. Somebody recorded over an old Grateful Dead bootleg which bleeds through during the quite sections. Also, the pitch seems to be a hair slow.

The recording cuts into the Marco section of Antelope. Trey quotes Bob Dylan’s “Fixin’ to Die” towards the end.
After Lawn Boy you can hear Shakedown Street bleeding through the recording. lol Trey mumbles through the OG brothel knife verse of Cavern. Page starts up HYHU, after a few seconds Mike and Trey start teasing Let’s Go from The Cars. Fish confesses he actually likes The Cars. He also confesses that he has to pee really bad so he’ll play the vacuum instead of his bone. lol Afterwards, Trey introduces the crew and talks about the band vs crew hockey game and how the crew lost 3-1. He didn’t want to embarrass them any further with the results of the band vs crew football game. lol Mike calls out Pete Schall at the start of Mike’s Song. Strange clipping sound towards the end of Mike’s? Hydrogen has a Fishin’ Hole tease from Page. Groove is in the Heart quotes and teasing from Trey to start Groove. Solid but short Groove. Trey tells everyone to remember that groove is in the heart! Before the encore Trey invites Russell Flanagan back to the stage. Nice fiddle solo in MSO. La Grange with fiddle was a nice change from the norm. They come back out for a second encore. Flanagan sounds great on Rocky Top. It’s too bad that same taper didn’t capture this one as well because it sounds like it was the better of the two nights.
