Review by Ramble_On

Ramble_On I wasn't into the band at all when I hit this show (my first). It was my first semester at SUNY New Paltz, just across the river from Poughkeepsie, and a new friend asked if I wanted to go. Rode in his VW bus to a college in Poughkeepsie (I think Vasser) and hung out in a dorm and had a few drinks. Went to the Chance and the show was more or less like a college party than a concert. It was a lot of people I had met at school those first few weeks and I just kinda wandered around the club, half listening. It wasn't crowded at all. I remember the weird lights bouncing off the wall and the merch booth in the back (wish I had bought something but really wasn't that impressed with the band). I also remember this girl who lived on the first floor of my dorm was there and wasted drunk. She was kinda hot but sloppy.
After the show, I gave away the only Phish bootleg I had because I didn't think I liked 'em. That changed over the next year or two !

Review by westbrook

westbrook This is the last show of the tour before the New Year's Run, as Trey notes. The recording for this show is pretty bad and it's missing the first set. The rhythm section sounds like a low rumble most of the time. Nonetheless, I enjoyed several parts of this show and most of the set is very tight. Llama through Bouncing is all good, and I really like this Antelope. Tela and Golgi are played well, too. I had never heard No Good Trying before and this was the second of three performances of the song. YEM is ok but they're are some cuts in the jam section. The multiple encores are nice, as well. Taking the low quality recording into account, I'll give this 3 stars

Review by thelot

thelot Not a very good audience source available for this second set. Thankfully at least part of this show circulates.

Llama cuts in on the recording. Nice version. Things get cooking with a red hot Antelope! Another extended Marco section. Tela makes another appearance since last being seen a couple times at the start of the tour. Trey’s solo is a little shaky. No Good Trying is played again. YEM has some cuts in it but features a great jam section and really cool bass solo that sounds like bass jello. Decent Bitch for the first encore. The Contact/Highway to Hell pairing is always a fun way to end the evening.
