Split Open and Melt contained Nellie Kane teases. The Horse and the beginning of My Friend featured Trey on acoustic guitar. Antelope contained a Simple Gifts tease and Chalk Dust included Crimes of the Mind teases. My Friend contained an Aw Fuck! signal and did not have the "Myfe" ending. This show marked the first public Phish performance of Bill Bailey Won't You Please Come Home? (it had previously been played at a private show on May 28, 1990). The encore featured Page’s father, Dr. Jack McConnell (who also sang lead vocals for Bill Bailey). The Piano Duet also featured Fish on washboard.

Review by SlavePhan

SlavePhan THE GOOD: This show started off the southern kick of the tour and the band put some extra umph in the bluegrass numbers - check out My Sweet One, which may be the fastest version ever. Speaking of speed, also take a listen to the hyper Axilla I which is followed by a break-neck Antelope. Basically, the whole first half of the second set is out of control, with the second half being somewhat more mellow.

THE BAD: In a time when the band had just 'figured out' SOAM, you'd think it'd have gotten better treatment here, but this version is just so-so compared to the monsters that would come later in the tour.

ETC: This show features the first version of Ya Mar with Mike scatting reggae-style. If you like the jam out of Demand on Hoist - take a listen to 7:20 on this SOAM - hear anything familiar? The band was energized in this show for sure, as there is lots of screeching and screaming throughout the show. Poor Heart, Ya Mar, and My Sweet One all have lots of screaming! If you're a fan of guests, listen to the Encore with Page's Dad in his first appearance with the band.

BOTTOM LINE: Southern leg adds extra spark to the bluegrass numbers, but average rest of show. 3.5/5

Review by westbrook

westbrook Nothing out of the ordinary in the first set, although it is always thrilling to hear Trey at the height of his powers weave his way through a Foam jam. The Horse has a long than normal intro as well. Antelope and Hood are the standouts of this show. Lizards is also a bit longer and looser in Page's solo section. The rest of the show is average '93 stuff, which is just fine by me.

Review by theghost

theghost 30th Anniversary! Split, Antelope, and Hood are the songs you want in 93 and, as Westbrook said, Trey is indeed at peak powers on all three of these, but his best is the Jim that kicks off the show (pretty much). His playing from about 5:20 on is spectacular! Perhaps even a rival of the FIREBALL he threw during the 7/9/92 Jim.
Not as great a night for Fishman though. He's bashing away like Keith Moon on an eight ball, on top of Trey's brilliance, in spots. This is about the last tour where he overplayed like this. It was kind of his last (occasional) weakness as a player. He tightened that up and just got better and better from there. A better recording and a good Fish night, and this could be another 93 classic. Check out Trey though. Wow.
