Review by MiguelSanchez

MiguelSanchez this is one of my favorite shows of the summer tour, which is stacked with great shows. this show has excellent flow, excellent playing, and some damn good jamming. the setlist is very strong too. also, like a lot of the shows from this tour, it is so well paced and vey well structured.

my friend my friend gets the crowd honed in right off the bat. sparkle gets the energy up and ac/dc bag steps it up another peg. the bag is nice and fun with a quick little jam tacked on the end. old home place fits in well before a solid early taste. the wedge fits in well before a very good stash. they stay down in the spacier realm for a while before starting to storm back into the stash refrain. instead of going back into the lyrics, they take a weird twist into i didn't know. this is one of the stranger versions of i didnt know you are going to hear. it is slower with some odd instrumentation, eg mike on drill and fish on trombone. then they close this one out with one of my favorite classic pairings, fluff>antelope. fluff is performed brilliantly, and then, trey and fish really burn through a red hot set closing antelope.

my sweet one is kind of an odd opener, but it works well. hahaha is pretty damn funny coming out of my sweet one. this must have been the weak of bowie's. they played a killer one at deer creek 4 days later. anyway, coming out of hahaha, they move into an amazing bowie. trey just buries the middle section, along with some good playing by trey. strange design gives everyone a quick breather before a good early theme from the bottom gets the crowd back in the game. theme, being a very new song at this point, was really pretty damn good right off the bat. i really like the 95 version of these tunes. mule gets the crowd really going, but i feel they kill the momentum with the acoustic army. alas, they rally back with a very good slave. page sounds marvelous on this one. batr>frankenstein offers a bit of something for everyone in the encore slot. very good show, and like a lot of the "bigger ampitheaters" coast to coast, phish made a very good debut here in '95.

highlights:
set1:
stash>i didn't know, fluff>antelope

set 2:
hahaha>david bowie, slave to the traffic light
