This show celebrated the release of “Phish Food” ice cream and was a benefit for the then-newly formed Waterwheel Foundation. “Ben & Jerry” made a short speech before the show and free ice cream was made available for the entire crowd. I Told You So and Love Me Like a Man, both of which featured Tammy Fletcher of The Disciples on vocals, made their Phish debuts. Cinnamon Girl was played for the first time since March 1, 1989 (904 shows). Hood contained a Barracuda tease by Trey. The last three songs of the first set, as well as Funky Bitch, featured Dave Grippo on alto sax and James Harvey on trombone. Grippo teased Third Stone From the Sun in Cars Trucks Buses and Chameleon in Suzy Greenberg. Soul Power 74 was teased by both horns in Suzy. Hello My Baby was performed without microphones.

Chameleon and Soul Power 74 teases in Suzy Greenberg, Barracuda tease in Harry Hood, Third Stone From the Sun tease in Cars Trucks Buses

zsmith0307 Just a super fun show! The Hood is the only thing monumental about the show, but the CTB and Bitch with horns are some of the best versions of those tunes. The second set does get a little slower, although the Taste and Bowie are both above average. Worth the download!

Squirrel95 I forgot about the cool Mike cover too, great vocals. That lady was awesome with Phish, first time I saw a real front man/woman take charge and they fell in line. Phish lacks real soul so when they play the blues it sound unauthentic. This was real. I eat like 8 pints of Phish food. I also didn't rate this the 5/5 it deserves.

Squirrel95 I could talk about this show all day, top 5 out of 312 or so for me, it has it all, well balanced one off sandwiched between europe tours in their home town, it had the bust out cover, horns funk, female lead singer that whipped phish into a blues band, and jams. It was a party, danced with Ben and Jerry, small venue. A moment in time...

Review by TwiceBitten

TwiceBitten This show is a little slow moving, but has a decent mellow Bowie, a cool Taste, okay Slave, the rarity Neil Young cover Cinnamon Girl and a lovely first set Hood. There are also some songs with Horns (cool) and some with female blues vocals (not cool). All the guests steer the show in a decidedly unPhishy direction. I'm sure the experience of seeing the band in a small theater after they had moved up to the big leagues was a blast and a half, but honestly the guys have not played an exceptional show in Vermont since 1995. The Ben & Jerry ice cream guys intro, Harry Hood, CTB and I Told You So are available as soundboard downloads from LivePhish, but the whole show circulates in SBD.

Review by spanishmoon

spanishmoon I just got this show, the first set is sick. Harry through Character Zero is a smoke show. Great Hood followed by 10 mins of CTBs with the horns, one of the best I've heard. Worth downloading just for the first set.

I haven't listened to the second set yet, first set is to good. I'll get to it tomorrow.
