Review by westbrook

westbrook Phish's legendary Fall 95 tour actually got off to a rather tepid start with 4 shows in California in late September after a nearly 3 month long break. While this show is the best of the 4, it does not come close to reaching the musical heights reached later in the tour. Still, as with just about every Phish show, there is some stuff here that is worth hearing. Besides the My Friend, My Friend opener that I always enjoy, the most notable moments of the first set are the introduction of the audience/band chess match played over the White Rabbit Jam and the dedication to Jerry before I'm Blue I'm Lonesome. Reba goes a little out of control at times and is average.

The second set begins with 3 well-played songs, and the Scent of a Mule in the middle of the set features some significant improvisation. Mike's Song is average, but the segue into Keyboard Army is pretty good, and Weekapaug ends with another segue into the debut of Suspicious Minds.

This show comes off as completely average in just about every way, but it is not a bad show. 3 stars for sure.
