This show featured the Phish debut of If I Only Had a Brain, which featured Fish on trombone. Alumni contained additional lyrics. During the pause in Letter to Jimmy Page, a local band, Eyeburn, traded off punk rock jams. This setlist is incomplete.

Review by thelot

thelot The SBD for this one is a little flat but it’s an enjoyable listen overall. The pitch almost sounds a hair slow for Foam. Unfortunately, Set 2 and 3 are missing here. Set 1 highlights don’t come in jam form rather we get a comical debut of ‘If I Only Had a Brain’ after Fish breaks his snare. Also, just when you think Fishman’s gonna kick back into LTJP, we get thrown a curveball and local punk band “Eyeburn” joins Phish onstage for an interesting punk number. I loved it! It was totally unexpected as I didn’t preview the set list before listening to the show. The female vocalist sounds a lot like Sofi Dillof on Bitchin’ Again from Amy’s Farm…could it be??

Review by TheEmu

TheEmu Pretty solid little set here. The Weekapaug is pretty good, and If I Only Had A Brain is damn funny. The only other noteworthy thing, IMO, is the Eyeburn section in Letter to Jimmy Page, which really threw me for a minute. I actually thought someone had recorded over the source tape for a minute. Anyway, not a lot to go wild about musically, and the Foam is cut off pretty early, but everything is well-played. 3 stars.
