On August 26th, near the end of their celebrated summer 1993 tour, Phish played the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall in Portland, Oregon. The show is available now for download at https://livephi.sh/ph930826 and streaming via the LivePhish App.
A stacked Set I featured a standout performances of Runaway Jim, Reba, Fee, Split Open And Melt, Esther, and It’s Ice > Harry Hood. Set II continued with a blistering 2001 > David Bowie, the second such combination ever played. Other set II highlights included Jesus Just Left Chicago and a Fishman-Baby Gramps duet (on vacuum and guitar respectively) on Gramps’ Nothin’ But A Nothin’. Chalk Dust Torture and 1993’s last Free Bird encore sealed the deal.
8/26/93 Portland was recorded by Paul Languedoc to DAT and mastered by Fred Kevorkian.
