(Published in the second edition of The Phish Companion...)

This show was one of several during the summer of 1992 in which Phish opened for Santana. Carlos Santana may have referred to Phish as "the Hose," but during this show, they were no better than a leaky faucet. The show lacked energy and creativity. The band was cramped to the front of the stage, having all of about five feet between them, and they played only standard versions of each song. Every song was played as it appeared on the album. "Reba" (during a beautiful sunset -  this is where I developed my love for "Reba"s at sunset) was the highlight of the short opening set with the solo trying to take off, but hugging the album's version as if it were the walls of an ice rink. Coming away from this show, I got the impression that Phish is definitely not an opening band.
