How High the Moon was played publicly for the first time since April 26, 1990 (363 shows) and was teased in Bowie. Page teased "Charge!" after Big Ball Jam. The beginning of MFMF featured Trey on acoustic guitar. Page teased Spooky in YEM. Amazing Grace was performed without microphones.

zzyzx The big ball jam reprise is just the do-do-doot do-do-doot doot doooooooo dooooooooo dooooooooo thing so don't get too excited about that. I'd love to hear the Forbin's narration again though.

DollarBill Bummer...No recording for this one and it looks like it could've been special!

A Sweet Emotion soundcheck? They haven't played Oh Kee Pa in a while. I always love to hear a Forbin's. There's a huge bust out of How High the Moon and a Kung! Fish gets the encore? And not only is there a Ball Jam, there is a Ball Jam reprise?

Oh tapers, how could you do this to me???

moving on...

Review by n00b100

n00b100 One of the more interesting selections of the official LivePhish catalog, not necessarily because it's an all-time great show, but because apparently no audience tape exists and Shapiro decided to release it (in the pandemic year of 2020, no less) to plug that gap and make available one of the few shows nobody outside the venue that night had heard. And it's not bad, all told - it's not quite at the level of the best of May or August 1993, but it's a charming good time in the way 1993 Phish tends to be a charming good time, I greatly enjoyed the lunar eclipse talk -> How High The Moon -> Mockingbird narration in Set 1, Bowie and Stash bring that skin-crawling early-90s tension you just don't get from modern-day Phish, and MFMF -> Kung > YEM offers up a nice slice of The Weirdness that early Phish trucked in. If you haven't heard 1993 Phish before, I'd direct you to 8/13 and 5/8 first, but this should absolutely be a stop on your adventure into early-90s Phish, and the sound quality is fabulous. My kingdom for an It's Ice like this one in 2024!

Review by ReeYees

ReeYees This show is definitely underrated probably because it was unavailable for so many years or perhaps because people have fallen out of love with early 90s phish. I for one love 92/93 phish unconditionally and this show is certainly no exception. Check out the Stash. It’s not the longest or the darkest but while I’m listening to it I honestly can’t think of any Stash I’d rather listen to. It’s really that good.

Review by MrPalmers1000DollarQ

MrPalmers1000DollarQ Perhaps this is coming from a place of spoiled listening, but I found this show to be fairly underwhelming for an official LivePhish release. Like the Denison University show on 12/1/92, this one offers very little in the way of interesting jams, even among its biggest hitters, and instead feels like a pretty second-rate early 90s Phish show. From reading some of the existing reviews, though, it sounds like this was a night missing from the third-party tapers' archive, and can therefore appreciate Shapiro's efforts to fill in some historical gaps.

The playing across both sets is tight, regardless of the mundane (a relative term, of course) territory covered. The only major highlight I could take away from this one is a nice Colonel Forbin's/Mockingbird, which makes reference to the evening's significant lunar perigee in both Trey's narrative and the How High the Moon break. YEM and David Bowie offer up some strong, yet unsensational, jam material to lightly season the rest of the show, but pale in comparison to the peaks achieved elsewhere on the 1993 Winter/Spring tour.
