Without microphones.
 Trey sang verses through megaphone.
Ya Mar contained Lizards teases from Trey. Amazing Grace was performed without microphones. Trey sang the verses of Fee through a megaphone. GTBT was preceded by a Black or White tease from Trey and subsequently included Heartbreaker teases.
Since 94,I was seeing and gathering as much information and music as I could from this band...if I had the whole catalog up to 95 I'd still want to here there progression...anyway,In the time of constantly doing b&p for tapes I came across this show,the second set I'n particular...anyway,I'm not an analyst,I just go by the groove and my heart,and I will say the Bowie this set always blew me away...there's just a point where the beat seems lost and they all synch up again beautifully...it's no deer creek 95 or providence 94,but it's pretty damn sublime to me...
It was @TheTimberHo's birthday, and my primary memory of this show is collapsing into our seats at the end of the first set and the kid next us--who'd driven up from New Orleans--turned to her with a joyful smile and said, "Happy Birthday, man!"
This shows smokes from beginning to end. It's been almost 20 years and this remains one the favorite shows I've seen. Although nothing in the second set seems to be a "recommended version", the sum is definitely greater than the parts.
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!
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
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
The final night of the Fox Theatre run might be the best of the 3. This show gets serious quickly with a great Mike's Groove and the rest of the first set is well-played and enjoyable. Listen for Trey's long held note in CDT. The second set brings more of the same excellent playing and the Bowie, Fluffhead, and Antelope are all strong.
