Review by HighNote

HighNote Phish's three-night run at The Fox was capped off by this stellar Saturday night show. There is a superb, loud, and crisp recording of this show available on Phishtracks.com and the Spreadsheet and I recommend picking it up. I have been making my way through the epic '95 Fall Tour thanks to the tapers and this show is worth pointing out to those looking for a new show to check out!

Set I

Cars, Trucks, Buses gets the show rolling as Page rips this one up and sets the pace for this show.

Mike's Song > A Day in the Life > Poor Heart > Weekapaug Groove combination is a real treat. This Mike's Groove, with Day in the Life And Poor Heart sandwiched between clocks, in at 30 min and contains a deep jam in Mike's with another strong Paug jam.

Ya Mar is played very tight, with Page and Trey both hitting stride in their jam sections, respectively. Plus Lizards teases ta-boot.

Next comes STASH, which IMHO is one of the best versions of the entire '95 Fall Tour, stays Type I, but peaks very strongly and seems to blowing the roof off The Fox for the final three minutes of this one.
If you like this song, def. check out this version.

The Fox is quieted down for an a capella Amazing Grace, followed by a standard Fee and CTD, which is quite the hand-banger, with loud and powerful jamming from the boys. As noted by others, Trey holds his signature high note for a good min., too

Set II

2001 --> Bowie - Usual paring for this time period, but Bowie, which clocks in at 18 minutes, really get out there...from 6:15 - 8:30, the band builds subtle, intensifying tension, then Trey switches on the tremolo effect on his guitar and goes to town as Page layers the effect, with Fishman beating on the drums and turns this jam into one dark beast.

Sleeping Monkey > Frankenstein -> Suspicious Minds > Hold Your Head Up, worth listen for the pairing and the Frankenstein, which rocks, as usual

A strong 15 min Antelope closes out the second set.

8.5/10 - show

Hightlights: Mike's extended Groove, Ya Mar, Stash, Bowie, Antelope
