Show Notes

This was an all ages show in the Pritchard Gym, which had a capacity of about 2,000. Axilla was played during soundcheck to give Paul “something loud with vocals.” Possum included The Simpsons and Fall Down secret language. During Guelah Papyrus, in the pause between The Asse Festival and Guelah (The Fly), Trey introduced Amy Skelton as “the newest member of the Phish crew…her first tour. Get back to work Amy.” Also at Fish’s request, Trey mentioned “There’s a tape for sale at the soundboard – this is something you’ve got to hear, the music of Willis Pratt….It’s like nothing you’ve ever heard before.” Trey also suggested visiting the Greenpeace table on the way to buy the Willis tape (J. Willis Pratt “The Lost Paradox”). Carolina was performed without microphones. After Carolina, some piano tuning was required and Trey commented that Page “was still living in the dark ages playing a real piano.” Before Buffalo Bill, Trey and Page explained the second-ever Big Ball Jam. This show featured the 1st known performance of Buffalo Bill, which was played without drums. Instead Fish played washboard while the audience clapped along. Though it wasn’t announced, this thought to have been the debut of Fish’s Madonna washboard. After Buffalo Bill, Trey said “We hope you liked that one. We know you didn’t like it as much as we did.” The whole band then piped up that they really like that song.   Creature included some creative megaphone (used for the count-in) and shout-outs to Satan and Malachi.
