This was an opening set for Blues Traveler. The debut of Don’t Get Me Wrong featured John Popper on harmonica. Possum contained Charlie Chan and Oom Pa Pa signals. The Bowie intro contained a full band Mo' Better Blues tease. Trey dedicated Carolina to Bob and Elaine Dillof (Sofi's parents). The soundcheck's Don't Get Me Wrong also featured Popper on harmonica.

Review by Mr_Miner

Mr_Miner I was in college at the time and took a bus from Boston to Port Chester as I didn't have a car. My roomate, who was from NY, and his buddy met me at the bus terminal. All I can say is that the show did not disappoint. Phish's set was very good and did not seemed rushed. I think everyone was excited to see John Popper play with Phish and the place went wild when Trey helped out with Gloria during the BT set. Just goes to show the level of respect each band had for the other. One of the more memorable Phish shows that I have been to on many levels.

Review by thelot

thelot Master SBD available for this show with very little of the room mixed in. With that said, the sound quality is a bit flat and lifeless. I’d love to hear a crispy audience recording of their first Capitol Theater performance!

The opening portion of the set is straightforward Fall ‘90’s Phish. Things start to pick up with a decent YEM and a solid version of Possum! HYHU bookends Zero Man’s rendition of Brain. This slides beautifully into Bowie. Short hi-hat hijinx with a brief Mo’ Better Blues tease. Good jam that doesn’t get too out there. Lots of great Machine Gun Trey action. Instead of ending it there they do one more for Bob and Elaine Dillof, Carolina. The debut of Don’t Get Me Wrong with Popper on vocals and harmonica takes the encore slot. This offers up the second vocal jam of the evening complete with Zero Man on his bone!
