This Runaway is everything I love about this band rolled up into one amazing and epic musical journey... I'm surprised it's not discussed more really, it's that good...

westbrook I like this show a good deal, and combined with the previous show in Atlanta, they make up my favorite back to back shows of the tour. The first set flows well and has a nice mixture of songs. The intense Melt is the best jam of the set, but I would recommend listening to the whole set. The second set starts with a long psychedelic Runaway Jim jam ending with a good segue into Free. This Jim is in the same league as the other big exploratory jams of the tour. Carolina serves as an appropriate mid-set breather before a well above average YEM featuring Boyd Tinsley on fiddle. Coil and Bold as Love put the cap on this strong show, which is well worth a download. The Jim, Free, Catapult, SOAM, Dog Faced Boy, and Carolina were released on the Left Nuts bonus disc and the YEM was released as a bonus track on the LivePhish Walnut Creek release so track those down if you want SBD quality of a large chunk of this show.

TheEmu IMO The "So far from home" section of this Jim is even better than the Lassie part of the Providence Bowie, and I absolutely love the Providence Bowie. Such a great jam.

Actually like the Carolina, too, crowd of course is awfully into it.

And then the YEM, great YEM. Boyd smokes the fucking thing, Trey fillets it, Mike finishes the thing off, eerie vocal jam... Great second set. Five stars.

Several of these tracks were released commercially as Left Nuts, and the Jim jam is absolutely unbelieveable. Clocking in at approximately 31 minutes, it's spacey and ambient but includes the psychedelic, structured groove of the 95 sound.
Though I can't speak for the rest of the show, fuck, that Jim is nuts.

soundboy1 2nd day of Summer 95 for me. People were trading tickets for single beers at this one. The lots were a lot of fun this summer. Most people were there for the music. Either vets who knew the deal or noobs who were thirsting for the energy. I was somewhere in between.

I loved this show. 1st set was all killer no filler. Halley's opener sets a damn good tone for the night. Cry Baby Cry?? Sweet. Really special for me as I got shut out of the White Album and was very very bitter about it. Melt is my favorite set closer too, it just really leaves you in high spirits going into set break.

2nd set is known for the killer 35 minute Jim. I was pretty shocked to hear it in the 2nd set I don't think I had ever heard of that happening before. I was blown away by the YEM though. It's always nice for a sit in on a jam vehicle and Boyd fit in nicely...

Faht1 Runaway Jim on 6/16/95 is one of phish's most interesting improvisational Jams. This Jam is only for the experienced "phish fan"... Not to sound like a phish fan snob but wow if your not familiar with this band or just an average fan you will be a lost puppy in the woods...not for you. As for the "experienced" phish fan this is a must download. The only way I could describe this Jam it reminds me of extension of the wacky strange segment of the 12/29/94 David Bowie (Lassie) from the 23 min to 29 min mark.
