Weekend Nuggets: Classic Spring ’92 SBDs


Fall '92 Poster

1992 Poster

Two of the most classic nuggets of any Phish collection, these shows need no introduction.  Along their phenomenal west coast run during April ’92 Phish churned out great show after great show, and these are two of the highlights.  Both taking place on California college campuses, these two have many old-school highlights.  Among these four great sets, be sure to check out the Anaconda “Mockingbird” and, of course the famous “Harry Hood” from Stanford.  Enjoy the crispy recordings as we enjoy the last weekend before tour starts up again!

    quick question re: Gorge…any kind of special stakes needed for tarps and tents? Wind or rocky soil a problem for the “standard” stakes?

  2. Leo Weaver Says:

    and Stupendous, thx for the fela suggestions

  3. voopa Says:

    It can get windy at the Gorge, but standard stakes should do…most of the camping is on either grass or dormant farmland.

  4. Chalkdustin Says:

    Hey guys, just catching up on this weekend’s posts.

    @mugician, Congrats, man! That is so cool and it’s so great that someone on this site won.

    @Mr. C, thanks for the Gorge advice. I went shopping today for some camping stuff and I’m getting really pumped. So are you allowed to camp next to your car?

    And for those going to the Gorge, are you checking into the site on Thursday or Friday? What would you recommend doing? We’d love to spend more time in Seattle before coming, but would arriving on Friday be a bad idea?

  5. Little Buddy Says:

    At my office struggling through some work on a Sunday night listening to 7.2.97. All I have to say is that this Stash is pure bliss!!!!!!

  6. Fee82 Says:

    I have 2 extras to each night of the gorge. Friends bailed on me. Going for face or B.O. Priority Shipping my treat. email me at : andyshuf@hotmail.com Im also willing to break them up and sell singles or pairs.

  7. uncle matty Says:

    has anyone else noticed that on the phish.com tour dates page for indio it lists for 10/30 – empire polo CLUB, and for 10/31 & 11/01 it says empire polo FIELD? wuz dat mean?

  8. halcyon Says:

    As for Fela….The Best Best Of is a good compilation, and introduction to his music. Is anyone going to Mock Show on Saturday before Red Rocks?

  9. BrandonKayda Says:

    Animals and Electric Ladyland are 2 really good picks for Halloween I think. There is a lot of room for improv through-out both of those records. (Dogs/Voodoo Chile, etc)

    I just hope it’s not Appetite For Destruction. I mean, I loved it when I first got it because it was kind of a sound-track to what I was into a few years back. But looking back on it now, it’s a fairly mediocre album.

  10. BrandonKayda Says:

    Hey have any of you guys recieved your Phish mail order Merriweather’s yet?

  11. larry bird flu Says:

    i havent brandon, no email either

  12. whole tour! Says:

    congrats mugician! thats pretty awesome you won that 4 day pass. Things seemed to work out alright…lol
    I wish i were going to red rocks!

  13. Mr. Completely Says:

    @Chalkdustin – I think to go in a day early you have to have the VIP camping pass or whatever it’s called…? really not sure. If it was May or September I’d say go early if you can. August, if its 100 degrees…maybe not so much. The campground’s fricken huge, is there even such a thing as a bad spot?

    and yeah you camp by your car. If you have a crew you can work together to build a shade structure.

    ===== albums =====

    assuming it’s not something we’d never think of, or Loveless…and Electric Ladyland and Derek and the Dominos are fun calls…I have been thinking that a Zep album would complete the roster of great classic rock bands. So I’ll toss out Houses of the Holy.

    For hard rock stuff, either Jane’s Addiction album is one billion times awesomer than GnR. I have a hard time seeing them do Ted, Just Admit It though.

    If they were gonna repeat the Floyd I say Meddle. The later stuff is so dark…I don’t think they can bring the rage.

    They won’t do a Dead album but if they did it should be Live/Dead. They might wanna get someone come in to sing Lovelight tho. But they won’t do it.

  14. Mugician Says:

    Woot! Still curious about whether anybody would like to carpool.

  15. BrandonKayda Says:


    Yeah, I don’t think Phish could pull them off too well, but Nothing Shocking is still a great album. You don’t think Meddle is dark?

    I don’t know if I would like to see Phish do Live/Dead. I just can’t see Trey singing Dark Star, or St Steven, any of them really. If they do cover The Dead (which I honestly hope they don’t) they should do Blues for Allah. Help>Slip>Franklin’s would be awesome to hear.

    With Zep, I’ll toss in either I or IV.

    Phish doing Loveless would be weird.


    I am 100% that Trey stole the Light riff (the beginning riff that they use when coming into Light from ambience) from the beginning riff of a song on there that I can’t think of. Listen to it for me tonight and tell me if you hear that little opening riff into Light. I swear when they debuted it at Fenway I heard My Bloody Valentine before Fish came in.


    I just can’t picture them melding everything in the same way MBV did, to make a big wall of sound. “Pink noise”

    I think Hot Rats would fucking rock but they don’t have enough arrangements (sax/trombone, etc) to pull it off. Maybe they could do Layla or Disrali Gears to finish off the “big rock bands* covers they have been doing.

    A lot of people are thinking “Thriller,” but I think they will be expected to do that and will play something else. Besides, Trey can’t sing like Micheal, so that’s out of the picture.

    Allman Brothers Band – Filmore 71′ would be a cool choice. Some nice blues rock. Big “Whipping Post” closer.

    Either way, I am excited for Halloween. I won’t be there, but I will be grabbing the tapes (I’m praying Mr. Miner attends/tapes)

    Red Rocks is in about 4 days guys, get ready. They are going to slay. I have a better chance of going to Merriweather now, because even if my deal doesn’t end up working out, there are always tickets in the lot beforehand (hopefully for face/different than lawns)

    Anyways, have a great time at the shows dudes

  16. Mr. Completely Says:

    They won’t do the dead…but trey has sung tons of dead tunes.

    Meddle’s not nearly as dark as any of the later 70s stuff. It’s transitional… sounds like 70s floyd sonically but much lighter on the bitterness and sarcasm

  17. BrandonKayda Says:

    That’s a good point, but I’ve always thought of Meddle as a pretty dark album.


    Roger Waters started going downhill and Animals was the last step until “The Wall” which was pretty much a self portrait.

    I think they would do Piper At The Gates Of Dawn, actually. If they did Floyd anyway.

  18. Mr.Miner Says:

    Red Rocks is here….madness….

  19. Mugician Says:

    Haha! See you there! Actually, Miner, I’d like to see you there just so I can shake your hand for the fine work you do here. I found the blog on the last night of the Hampton Reunion, and I read it almost everyday. Good stuff, and great fucking work!

  20. BrandonKayda Says:

    Right on, Mugician.

    Thank you Mr. Miner

  21. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    echoes is a dark song

    roger waters’ the pros and cons of hitchhiking is a great album, i recommend it if you haven’t heard it

  22. halcyon Says:

    Please No Thriller…..As great as his contributions were to music and pop culture….he was a pedophile

  23. OldSkoolPhishPhan Says:

    My first-ever 5 Phish shows were 4/15/92 (Phish’s 1st L.A. appearance) through 4/19/92. While the 4/15 is average, the rest of the run are some of the best shows the band has ever played. You can check out the latest Phish Companion for my reviews of those shows (+ pics). Good times indeed.
