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: http://livephi.sh/ph93308
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.
