Phish Debuts Pink Floyd’s “Great Gig”, Plays Insane “YEM” On This Date In 1993 [Listen]

first_imgSuffice to say, Phish enjoys playing in Colorado. From their earliest shows outside of Vermont in 1988 at The Roma and Fly Me to the Moon Cafe in Telluride to their now annual end of summer run at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park in Commerce City, Phish has played more than their fair share of exceptional Colorado shows.Today we look back at Phish’s outstanding performance at Western State College in Gunnison, CO in 1993. Beginning with a curve ball “Loving Cup” opener and a first set “Reba” featuring an “Indian War Dance” solo by Cameron McKinney on the keys, this show also includes top shelf bust outs of Lynyrd Skynyrd’s “The Ballad of Curtis Loew” (302 show gap), “Halley’s Comet” (474 show gap), a debut of Pink Floyd’s “The Great Gig In The Sky,” as well as a noteworthy “You Enjoy Myself” with a plenty of teases (“Owner of a Lonely Heart,” “Low Rider,” “Oye Como Va”) and a “Spooky Jam” sandwiched in between. This second set is a must-listen.Listen to the entire show recording from March 14, 1993 below:Setlist: Phish at Paul Wright Gym, Western State College, Gunnison, CO – 3/14/16Set I: Loving Cup > Foam, Guelah Papyrus, Sparkle, Stash, Paul and Silas > Sample in a Jar, Reba[1], Punch You In the Eye > Runaway JimSet II:  Halley’s Comet > David Bowie, The Ballad of Curtis Loew > You Enjoy Myself -> Spooky Jam -> You Enjoy Myself, Lifeboy, Rift, Big Ball Jam, The Great Gig in the Sky[2] > Hold Your Head Up, The Squirming CoilEncore: Memories[3], Sweet Adeline[3], Golgi Apparatus[1] Cameron McKinney played Indian War Dance solo on piano prior to the whistling portion of Reba and later sang part of the Reba chorus.[2] Phish debut.[3] Without microphones.[Setlist via phish.net]last_img
