After my non-humble brag about being at the show, I'll add:

In retrospect it's hard to adequately describe how, in addition to quality musicianship, how totally left field and sometimes downright absurd everything was – the complete variety of music styles, the vocal jam in YEM, "I didn't know", the lyrics to everything, the drummer coming out with a vacuum cleaner and covering The Doors, then having his mom come out... I had Lawnboy on CD but don't think I had Junta yet that was only available on cassette at the merch tables, so it's not like I knew all the music either.

This band was f'in weird and really good. And it was a young hippy crowd. The only thing missing from this show was the Trey storytelling (Mockingbird, Harpua) that I got at the other shows of the era.

Only one jam over 12 minutes and it’s divided sky?   Weaksauce.     

/s

well, there's also the 17+min yem.

It's 91 and it's the horns tour. Not known for extended jamz.

oh, don't yell at me. I enjoy it. I was just pointing out the discrepancy in the statement regarding the longest length track on the release. I couldn't tell if bobafett was being sarcastic or not.

what part of /s didn't you understand?

Nice.  91 is my jam.  One of the few times I got to do a whole tour.  Looking forward to listening.
You're just lucky I can't quote you in the WAP version of this site.

Was hoping for Lowell '95 or 8July99(Birds!).  No Flat Fee???  Just like the House and Senate, perhaps the Phish Archivist should have term limits?

It was totally sarcastic.   I really do like these earlier shows as there is a bubbling fire just below the surface on almost every song.  I listened to the first set in the kitchen today before I had to assuage the other people working and listen to Adele and Pink Floyd.
The events in our lives happen in a sequence in time, but in their significance to ourselves they find their own order; the continuous thread of revelation.

It remains a mystery why the great shows from '99 have been consistently ignored. They're not that hard to spot.

Meanwhile, maybe they could just dump the entirety of '94 and '97 on us? We're not getting any younger here.

It's not a terrible pick, but let's be honest, how different is this show really than the 7/12 show that already got released?

With the rate of one or two shows per year that they are currently dropping I wish they would start getting out the shows where there are no good AUDs or are legit legendary shows.

Even Arrowhead, yes I know it's also available as a SBD, would have made more sense to release from this tour since those shows are often cited as among the best of the year.

This!  I don't think they really care about existing sources in circulation.  Way too many LP releases of shows that already circulate in Sbd.

I agree with this.  I mean, the Keene show is already out.  There a bunch of 91 shows I wold have picked over this.  But I am glad they are putting out more early stuff.  I would rather see some 87-89 releases personally.

Indeed, only one complete show from the entire 80s is crazy to me. There are tons of awesome shows from 87-89 too. And what about 90, they only put out 10-31-90 and that was like 15 years ago or something.

All of this x 1000.

But the library is finite, gotta keep that in mind. The long view.

The library is finite, but the life expectancy of the fans is much shorter than the current rate of release.

Yeah at the current rate of release of 1-2/year they would release only 60-70 more shows by the time the band members are in their 80s, so that line of reasoning doesn't make much sense. And for proper physical archival releases it's even worse, with nothing in 2014 and 2016. And when they do box sets, BD box aside, they are slapped together without much thought or effort with no liner notes or much in the way of photos and ephemera.

I think they just don't care about that side of the business anymore. Which is fine, I get it, they are making more money than they ever could have conceived of by playing shows. But aren't they paying a guy to take care of this stuff for them?

Finally getting into this release on a lazy Saturday.  It wouldn't have been my choice for the next pick, but this show rips!
