Wizard of Oz teasing bookends the first set of this classic early Spring Tour show. The second set is a microcosm of where Phish was at the time of recording. It features fun with audience members, pokes at the crew, a My Sweet One that will knock you out, and strong versions of Weekapaug and Magilla.
After being told to turn it down, Phish gives a clinic in quiet dynamics throughout both sets. This outdoor show in March features exceptional versions of Stash, Runaway Jim, It’s Ice, and Weekapaug Groove.
After some blistering Spring Tour shows in Colorado, Phish made their way to the west coast for a big trek towards Canada. Beginning in Los Angeles, this show is one of two nights just off the Walk of Fame. Highlights include Maze, David Bowie, and a second set that rocks from the get-go.
The ability to instruct a crowd using musical cues is another check in the win column for Phish. This episode puts you right at the early stages of that on a night in Portsmouth, NH. Signals abound the night after the first Secret Language Lesson. What really sets this night apart is how good both sets are overall. Get in on the secret with Episode 16.
