The show was the season opener for Phish's 1992 Fall Tour and includes numerous debuts of songs that would quickly become fan favorites ("Axilla," "Fast Enough for You," "Lengthwise"), an impromptu cover of Johnny Cash's "I Walk the Line" and a special guest appearance by pedal steel master Gordon Stone. Wild improvisational jams are interwoven with teases of "Those Were the Days" (the theme song to 'All in the Family') throughout the performance. The night also featured the very first "Big Ball Jam," during which four colored balls were thrown into the audience, with each band member replicating the movements of one of the balls on their instrument. The show ends with a cover of Jimi Hendrix's "Bold as Love."
In addition to the complete performance, the four-song soundcheck is included in the three-CD set, which can be downloaded at the Live Phish portal for under $10. Profits will benefit Partners in Health and the American Red Cross to aid Haiti in the aftermath of the 7.0 earthquake that ravaged the island on January 12. Many Phish fans already had unmastered copies of this show, if only they could remember where they stashed it.
