Show Notes

This was Phish’s second and last show at the Paul Wright Gym, “the highest collegiate gym in the world.” Flyers for the show read: “WSC with Don Strasburg & Alex McCormick Present ‘The Return of PHISH'” Tickets were $11 advance and $13 day of show and the show took place during a snow storm. Trey shouted out to Cameron McKinney during Stash. Eight-year-old Cameron McKinney joined the band during Reba for his solo rendition of Indian War-Dance (Rolseth cover) on piano before the whistling and final chorus, on which he added guest vocals. Halley’s Comet was played for the 1st time in more than three and a half years (since 8/17/89) and for the first time ever without its composer Richard “Nancy” Wright singing along. The Ballad of Curtis Loew was performed for the first time in nearly two and a half years (since 10/30/90). This landmark rendition of You Enjoy Myself featured teases and jamming on Owner Of A Lonely Heart, Low Rider and Oye Como Va before the vocal jam along with the 1st known performance of Spooky (Mike Sharpe [Shapiro] cover) which was played as an instrumental. The You Enjoy Myself vocal jam subsequently included more teases including We Will Rock You (Queen cover), We Are the Champions (Queen cover) and Welcome to the Machine (Pink Floyd cover). From this whirlwind of creativity arose the 1st performance of The Great Gig In The Sky (Pink Floyd cover), sung by Fish and with a vacuum solo covering the original backing vocals. Memories and Sweet Adeline were performed without microphones. The band and crew spent the following day making the 626-mile drive to Phonenix.
