New LivePhish Archival Release: March 8, 1993 Santa Fe

On March 8, 1993 Phish returned to the Land of Enchantment for their fifth New Mexico show and their only play at the former Sweeney Center – a convention center ballroom with a capacity of about 1200.

The show is available now for download and streaming via the LivePhish app. Listen now:

Set I highlights included The Oh Kee Pa Ceremony > Llama (the third such combination and last to-date), a standout lunar Colonel Forbin’s Ascent > Fly Famous Mockingbird, It’s Ice, and David Bowie. Mockingbird and Bowie both integrated bits of Les Paul’s How High The Moon.

Set II kicked off with Poor Heart and included a spirited Stash, the only pairing of a mashed-up My Friend My Friend > Kung, and You Enjoy Myself followed by The Lizards. The a cappella Amazing Grace remains lost to the moment as it was not captured on the soundboard tapes. The encore was a Fishman/Barrett perigee/mutant Love You > Hold Your Head Up, followed by Chalk Dust Torture.
