23piper This was the final show of my 3 night run with Phish and closes my first encounter with the band. 10/13 was a great warm-up. 10/14 (and the night show @ Emos) was obviously all a fellow needed to get on the bus and stay on the bus. This night was very good and showed the kind of stamina these guys possessed back then but in my final estimation, they were exhausted and didn't have it in them to fully hit the highs that they hit the two previous nights. I recall being particularly impressed by Buried Alive, Slave, and Julius. I left those 3 nights a total convert up to this point in 2012.

Mikesgroover Buried Alive was a bit of a bustout opener but shows no signs of rust. Slave pops up in a strange position, but is majestic nonetheless with Trey enthusiastic and way out front. Nice and tight Foam, but the first section of the Bowie closer is rushed, with the timing slightly off. The jam is typically stellar for a '95 version, though not especially distinctive.

Before any kind of jam can get going, Simple is brought to a screeching halt by the Tweezer intro. The Tweezer jam has some interesting, rhythmic weirdness to it, slowing down until it's finally just Page, Mike and Fish with almost no guitar sounds at all. That segues nicely into the Lizards intro. Suspicious Minds is frenetic.

The opening to Harry Hood is very quiet, with the opening lyrics spoken extremely quietly. The rest of the song is mildly subdued but after building to the traditional "You can feel good, good, good about Hood" climax, Trey calmly, almost soothingly, speaks the final lyrics and the song comes to a quiet conclusion. Very unique.

The Tweezer>Lizards and Hood are the only unique aspects of an otherwise solid night on this tour.
