|Another great recording, this show gets some flak for various reasons but we'll leave it up to the listeners to decide. The comments in the text file have not been altered.
|I was at this show but remember almost nothing about it. Time to grab it and give it a spin. Thanks.
|I have a story to tell. I had a friend who was a huge phan of Phish. He kept telling me to get over Jerry Garcia's death and follow Phish around with him. I listened to some of the live shows he had with an open mind. I love music, I really wanted to be into this band Phish that a lot of folks were raving about. To be honest they did not do anything for me. They were okay, yet there was not a lot there to hold my attention. I guess being on the bus with the GD since the early 1970s may have had something to do with it. Anyway, he convinced me to go and see this show since we were living in Buffalo. I kept an open mind throughout the whole experience. I will relate my experience of this show. It is not definitive, nor meant to be. You can say it was an outsider's experience and leave it at that.
After three songs into the show there were some awarenesses on my part that seemed consistent for the rest of this show. The band seemed to force the songs to make something happen. When I say something I mean, that certain kind of magic that comes from the heart and soul of a performer. They pushed real hard too. For me, I felt embarrassed for the band. They wanted something to happen, yet the band could not get out of their own way.
The next awareness I had applied to the phans. Most of them were under thirty at that time and they came to party. Hey, I was at a lot of Dead shows. It had become party central near the end for a lot of folks. In both instances I was there for the music. I got the distinct impression that either the phans were not listening to the music coming off of the stage, or their perceptions were askew for various reasons, as to how off the band was this night. I never saw Dead heads boo the Dead, but there were many shows in which the Heads complained vigorously as to how bad the shows were near the end of the Dead's tenure. This was not the case with my friend. He staunchly defended Phish, telling me I missed what they were really conveying up there on the stage. I was not trying to convince him otherwise, I was just being honest with my experience of this particular show.
The best two songs of this show were Fluffhead and Chalkdust Torture. For reasons unbeknownst to me, the band relaxed and let it happen through those two songs. It was two different bands up on that stage this night. One I liked for two songs, and one I had absolutely no interest in ever seeing again. The next number Frankenstein kind of put the nail in the coffin for me liking this show. I was never a fan of the song when it first came out in 1974. It represented to me the shifting commercialism of FM radio in the early 1970s away from the music that had meaning for me throughout the 1960s. I can not tell you if it was played well or not, I tuned it out in preparation for the ride back to Buffalo.
Honestly, unless you are a hardcore fan of Phish, this would probably not be a good starter show for you. Eventually I came to appreciate Trey's playing and approach on stage. He earned the right to receive the accolades directed at him. I do not hate the band. I have seen them since this show, Darien Lake Performing Arts Center recently. It was not a great show, but much better than this Rochester show.
I trust I do not get flamed for being honest here. Thank you for the ramble.
|No worries - you're not the first person who didn't like this show. Personally this isn't exactly my favorite Phish era but I do have some faves from the fall.
| _ thanks !!!
|Chopper thanks for the story. Very common amongst old Deadheads. I'm from buffalo and spent a lot of year as well tryin to get my fellow Deadhead friends to get on the Phish bus. It's really a big deal that is sometimes hard to convey to others to see deep down what is going on.
Once in a while you get shown the light....
|I was at this show,still have the master,to which I haven't uploaded yet.I thought this was a great show,especially the 2nd set.
|Hey, thanks for being so understanding. Lenny you nailed it by referring to me as an old Deadhead, though this does not change my eclectic musical tastes, or limit me from experiencing the music of new bands. I have listened to and watched many live Phish videos since this Rochester show. I do know now how I feel about the band. Music is a very subjective experience for a lot of people. I approached Phish as objectively as possible. Thanks for the feedback, much appreciative.
