Full Show Friday: Phish 10-31-94

Last year we searched the murky back waters of youtube to find full concerts and posted them to the site monthly.  That was all well and good but this year RtBE is upping the ante with a show every week to celebrate Full Show Friday's.  These shows are of varying quality and may not be here for long so enjoy them while you can...As always, please support the artist every which way, but especially by seeing them live (if they are still playing)...This week...Phish!

The best Halloween Show Phish has played, not the best Halloween cover set they played (That would be the Omni 96) but the sets surrounding the Vermont's band's take on the White Album (Set 2) was just unreal. The "Divided Sky", the "Reba", christ even the "Sparkle" gets me juiced in the first set.  

The second set is a musical achievement in it's own right, covering the entire The Beatles (the White Album).  The band nails it if they are a bit hurried, who can blame them they are ripping through one of the all time classics and instantly making a musical name for themselves on a national scale. The first time the group tackles "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" is in itself a moment.

Third Set...."David Bowie" jam? "Run Like An Antelope"!  Wow. 

A cool idea, for the first set the uploader took a video from the crowd which was iffy at best, but paired it with the pro audio, so it matches up perfectly if not all the visuals are that great. Second Set is just the audio from the show, but it is bareable, third set we only get a part of but still pretty cool. A vital piece of Phish History, and a great show to end our month of great shows with, enjoy:
