fhqwhgads I remember when this show was released as Live Phish Volume 01. I was in college at the time, and only gave it an attentive listen on a weekend visit home. The sound quality of the Live Phish release is a bit dodgy, the levels not as smooth as some other releases; or perhaps it was just typical of a December '95 show that the energy is all over the place. Fine first set, to be sure, and one that would definitely please in the common era (bustout of Taste That Surrounds notwithstanding), but the beloved second set is all it's cracked up to be and more. If I remember correctly, neither Timber (Jerry) nor Halley's Comet had been jammed out in such a way preceding this show. Oh, how I love a good "->", and this show has a virtually nonstop series of them in Set II. Knowledgeable, longtime phan Charlie Dirksen (@Icculus) is on record that December '95 is pretty much all must-hear Phish, and I concur. On display in this show is a fervor both on part of the band and the audience that is rarely matched these days.
