MiguelSanchez this show is easily in the upper 1/3 of shows played in the summer of '95, which is certainly saying something. they get things jumping right off the bat with a nice llama. spock's brain, which would all but fall by the wayside after this tour, works well. the rest of the set is fairly standard. bathtub takes off and gives you some nice first set improvisation. melt closes things out in style, but it's also pretty standard for the times.

halley's is a nice little treat to kick things off. chalkdust leads you to believe that this set won't be slowing down, but then they pull out caspian....lame in my book. uncle penn picks things up, and just like red rocks 10 days before, they follow a snappy penn with a monster mike's song. personally, i prefer the red rocks version, but this is no slouch. this groove makes this one of the true hidden gems of summer '95. the work the tension and release masterfully. instead of dipping into hydrogen, they drop into a nice contact, which is followed by a very inspired weekapaugh. the fishman interlude is nice, and highway to hell closes this set in fine style. don't miss the nice slave encore either. page sounds lovely on that one.

This Mike's Song is ridiculous; plain and simple.

My first show. Highlights included Spock's Brain, If I could (with a great ending), a dreary and very different Mike's Song->Contact, and the crazy dude dancing on the roof during Highway to Hell. Over-all an average show, especially when compared to the gems that followed that December. Great scene though. Blossom is a beautiful place to see Phish.

Penn42 Somewhat ironically, this was one of only two shows I had heard from Summer '95 at the time it was released. I have since gotten my ass in gear and heard quite a few more, because this was a great tour. But I digress...

This is a pretty sweet show punctuated by a really wonderful Mike's Groove. I'll take me a Contact as the "meat" any day! The Mike's in particular is really inventive and has a unique Mike solo section. He plays some really nice melodies. Weekapaug rages nicely, and even gets a little weird. All told, that 35+ minute stretch in the second set is the highlight of the show (and one of the higher points of the tour), but there are still some other great cuts to see here.

Summer '95 was a great tour for Split; this one is relentless. So dissonant. So intense. Foam and Slave get decent workouts as well. Also, Spock's Brain. Everything else is served straight up.

Not a classic show in the grand scheme of things, but a really fun listen nonetheless.
Score: 2
