Show Notes

This was Phish’s fourth and final show at the UNH Fieldhouse and the last show on the final leg of the band’s longest tour ever, which included 71 full shows over the course of about three months. Before the show, the road crew and office staff gathered backstage for a group photo shoot. Soundcheck found the band rehearsing Crossroads, which they had teased the previous night in Bangor. Stash included the recent audience participation move of clapping along to Fish’s wood block breaks and, more importantly, a seuge into the ancient ritual chant Kung and back. Trey played the beginning of My Friend My Friend on acoustic guitar. Before Satin Doll, Trey thanked the audience and the crew in detail, including Brad “big ball thrower” Sands, Amy Skelton and “Greenpeace Mike” Hayes and he dedicated Satin Doll to the crew. The David Bowie intro included The Simpsons and Random Note secret language and a Mike tease of Amazing Grace. This was a groundbreaking extended take on David Bowie, which wrapped around Jessica and Have Mercy. Trey played The Horse on acoustic guitar. It’s ice was stretched out with a jam that seemed to tease the yet-to-be played or named Simple. This unique rendition of The Squirming Coil culminated in a big jam that began to sound like Crossroads before it segued into Big Ball Jam. Mike’s Song started on a dime after the audience “made the basket” with the balls. Mike’s Song led into the 1st known performance of Crossroads (Robert Johnson cover). I Am Hydrogen included a deft tease of Rainy Day Women #12 and 35 (Bob Dylan cover). Amazing Grace was performed with microphones and developed into the 1st and only known performance of Amazing Grace Instrumental (which included elements of Weekapaug Groove, specifically the drum beat). After this show, the band and crew took a couple weeks to recuperate and Fish threw a musical party at the Geodesic Dome where he lived. The next shows were in Monterey, California. This show was released as an archival Download at LivePhish.com in early 2004 and was remastered and re-released as a JEMP Records/LivePhish CD and Download in January 2008 along with filler from the soundcheck and from the 5/5/93 and 5/6/93 Albany shows.
