kipmat Hey, it's also the 25th anniversary of the July 1991 tour with the Giant Country Horns! In recognition of the anniversary, I downloaded this show, one of the few I hadn't previously heard from this tour. I have to say, it's kind of weird to listen to an AUD of this tour, with SBDs several shows having been widely circulated over the years.

Phish plus the GCH were an incredibly tight ensemble throughout the whole tour, and just about everything from this show is performed well. Carl Gerhard wastes no time bringing his trumpet to the fore on Suzy and Cavern. I missed the Gilbert O'Sullivan tease, but I did hear Trey teasing Bob Seger's "Main Street" near the end of Weekapaug (which he did often). But the real treats are the Alumni>LTJP>Alumni encore, and the only 'A' Train of the tour (!), which includes lots of playful interaction during the solos, like they would do during Magilla at other shows on this tour.

Not quite a "go-to show" from this tour, like 7/12, 7/14, or 7/20, but still a fun listen!
