I totally do remember. I remember Box of Rain jumping out of the speakers. I remember the friends I was with laughing at me, “they don’t play that song live” they chuckled. What does that mean, I thought?
I remember it took me a month to realize the record was not called “American Reality”

First album I heard was Grateful Dead (“Skullfuck”, 1971). Went out and bought Aoxomoxoa on cassette. Then heard American Beauty on a cassette in my friend Phil’s 1955 Ford pickup. That was a summer where we dreamed of surfing and ate up every Rick Griffin and R Crumb comic we could find. Crystal clear daydream in my mind.
And yeah - the first time you hear it, Box of Rain really jumps out of the speakers. Still does.

June 94

Twenty years ago in June Phish toured another summer amazingly. 6/13, 6/14 , 16. 3 shows following each other and maybe my favorite  of Phish ever. To be honest, they do a lot of “normal” structure but still adding flavor, Trey tackles each night with his electric guitar wailing so fluently with the keys. June 16th opens with Bouncing, and it’s groovy and refreshing. Llama is a huge opener in  summer 94 but don’t underestimate Page!! 

Tight playing with bombs,booming percussion, ‘n keys not to mention pedaling guitar licks and whammy style, riffs/solos.

Edit: I don’t know why I picked those 3 shows lol I’ve gotten a listen to every show since these. These 3 really stick out.
