Review by MrPalmers1000DollarQ

MrPalmers1000DollarQ 6/26/1994, the GameHoist show, is an interesting spectacle of Phish lore not only for the obvious reasons, but also because it may be the only show they've ever played where the show as a whole is famously noteworthy, but none of the individual songs that make up its two sets are particularly so. Of course, as others have pointed out, the band played everything with excellent precision. Mike is especially phenomenal throughout the Gamehendge set. But rarely if ever will an individual song be plucked from out of the show's greater context for isolated listening/discussion. I point this out not as an indictment of the show--I had an absolute blast listening to this unique slice of Phish, which poetically bookends the band's career up to this point. It will probably never happen again, but this was a really cool way to craft a special evening, and I imagine the folks in attendance felt the blessing from their spot in Municipal Auditorium.

+1 for the encore. Old Home Place debut and Tube bustout are very fun, and Trey absolutely burns down the house on Fire.
