Chalk Dust Torture and Fee were dedicated to Trey's hero, Boston Bruins star Cam Neely. Tweezer included a Sweet Emotion tease and vocals. Sweet Adeline was performed without microphones.  Harpua found Jimmy watching Cam and the Bruins winning the Stanley Cup and contained "Charge!" teases from Page. BBFCFM included a How High the Moon tease from Mike. The Aquarium Rescue Unit was the opening act.

(Published in the second edition of The Phish Companion...)

This show is an absolute classic from the grand Somerville Theater. This was my first chance to see the Aquarium Rescue Unit, and I was absolutely blown away. But on to Phish"....The first set is highlighted by "TMWSIY" -> "Avenu" and a sick "Tweezer". 1991 was a pretty good year for "Tweezer", come to think of it. But games are always won in the second half, and the same holds true for Phish shows. The "AC/DC Bag" -> "Curtain" -> "Sloth" that opens up this set is incredible if only for the transitions. "AC/DC" just melts away and "Curtain" emerges right tin stride. And the "Curtain" -> "Sloth" baton swap is the mind blower. "Curtain" fades out and "Sloth" fades in with astonishing power. I love this transition. We were also treated with a great Jim and Tela, not to mention the "Harpua" with Jimmy watching the "Bruins kicking the Penguins' ass!" Get this show. I guarantee you will love it.

physhb8 This also isn't a review but is a correction to my prior comment (which was also not a review). The "edit" function isn't working, so here we go. Apparently this isn't long enough to be a review, so I'll keep typing until it's long enough to be a review.

My reference to 5/2/22 in the prior "review" should be 5/2/91.

physhb8 This isn't a "review" but a response to the comments/notes below the set list above.

The comments/notes below the set list above provide in part the following as of 10/27/22: "Soooo...I gave 5/4 a listen before and after the Hood and there's definitely no mention of the Vermont Dairy Farmers. .net has "Hood was played in support of the Vermont Dairy Farmers." .com has "Harry Hood was dedicated to Vermont dairy farmers." It appears neither of these are correct. That being said, 5/3 has no mention of the Vermont Dairy Farmers either, despite what the submission says."

At the end of the Hood (the 11:00 mark) on 5/2/22 on phishtracks (, Trey discusses Vermont dairy farmers.
