    ro-huggie-bear: i have no idea. i believe I got it back in the day when I was downloading shns (shorten) via ftp (file transfer protocol). I believe it’s a SBD, and a good one. the antelop to end set I is intense. set II opens w/ walk away – classic. you forget how balls to the wall intense these dudes were in 93. fast and furious

    Enjoying the DVD of 12.29.93 right now. The “IT” show for me. I can’t believe it was 17 years ago. Wow. Playing in an aquarium, Trey with his white hightops with the toungue sticking out. Page all prepped out with his blazer. Kick ass show. Fits in with ’93 theme here at the BB.

    Verno- you are too knid!

    Morning pholks- how is everyone today? Had a stressful day yesterday, as a large portion of my torrents I accidentally erased. Still have them on my ipod, so I downloaded a program and am trying to figure out how to get them back into itunes. Not happy. Hopefully today is a better day

  12. kayatosh Says:

    voopa: nice find. that’s the one. disc 2 qand 3 are killah, as in jacob millah tha killah.

  13. kayatosh Says:

    amen, brother luther.

  14. Robear Says:

    @ halcyon,

    unless you skipped the Gorge and went to Toyota Park.

    kaya, have you heard the 4/21/92 show from Redwood Acres?

  15. voopa Says:

    The 1992 Eureka show is a must hear too. No seeders @ etree right now, and it’s not in my collection. Hmm, I’m going to have to fix both of these issues ASAP.

  16. Robear Says:

    gee, thanks VOOPA! downloading now. will listen tomorrow over coffee.

  17. voopa Says:

    2 seeders are showing on that ’92 show now:



  18. kayatosh Says:

    robear: i’m familiar with 4/18/92 “squirt gun break” show, but do not believ i’ve ever heard 4/21. looks great. dang i love 93.

  19. Robear Says:

    the redwood acres show is on Phishows.com

    not a great source, but pretty good.

    wish we had an outdoor amphitheater in Humboldt County. About 9-12K seats. Would be an amazing tour stop.

    hey ranchers….

  20. Corey Says:

    Happy birthday Mr. Palmer.

    Last show Coventry; mised first set while bringing in the car.
    First show back was Hampton 1, hanging in the first 5 (feet in front of the stage) for all 3. Emotions were on another plane.
    Perhaps the one time where all imperfections were beautiful.
    That is all I have to say.

  21. kayatosh Says:

    robear: that sounds like a viable business venture. downside: humboldt becomes more touristy. want an east coast partner in the humboldt outdoor amphitheater venture.? let’s raise the funds and do it.

  22. EL Duderino Says:

    Thanks voopa for the link.

    I don’t have that one in the collection yet!

    Much obliged!

  23. AintNoTele Says:

    DocG: ephod is a program that will rip from ipod to itunes

  24. Robear Says:

    kaya, yes. let’s look into it.

    humboldt will never become too touristy. it’s behind the redwood curtain. no real easy in, easy out. small airport.

    Just inland enough to be out of the fog belt.
