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 cost $11 advance and $13 day of show, which took place during a snowstorm. Trey shouted out to Cameron McKinney during Sparkle. Eight-year-old Cameron McKinney sat in during Reba for his solo rendition of Indian War-Dance (Rolseth cover) on piano and adding vocals to the final chorus. Halley’s Comet was played for the 1st time in more than three years (since 8/17/89) and for the first time ever without its composer Richard “Nancy” Wright singing. The Ballad of Curtis Loew was performed for the first time in more than two years (since 10/30/90). You Enjoy Myself featured teases of Owner Of A Lonely Heart, Low Rider and Oye Como Va and sandwiched the 1st known performance of Spooky (Mike Sharpe [Shapiro] cover) played as an instrumental. You Enjoy Myself’s 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 arose the 1st The Great Gig In The Sky (Pink Floyd cover), sung by Fish 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 Phoenix.
