Mikesgroover In 1994 and 1995, Florida hosted an overwhelming number of hot Phish shows. This one is no exception, an example of a well-honed band hitting their stride mid-tour with an outstanding Mike's Groove that's highly underrated and overlooked.

Poor Heart>Bag is a really high energy show opener, with Bag building to a noisy climax that's pushed faster and faster by Fishman and Trey.

Melt has a reverb-drenched middle jam and a furious climax. You really can't go wrong with any Fall '95 version of Melt, and this one holds up well.

Second set: Wilson>Theme is solid but uneventful. Scent is fast-paced and high energy but it's the ensuing Mike's Groove that's worth seeking out. The Mikes jam wanders off into a beautiful spacey jam at 10 minutes or so, where it settles quietly for another five minutes of gorgeous, low-key exploration before Life on Mars pops out. This is the only Mikeís>Life on Mars>Weekapaugh ever played, and I think it works well in this context.

Weekapaugh is well-crafted with Trey using these short, fast wah-wah-esque licks that are very funky. Itís so sad to me to see how much of a shell of it's once glorious self Weekapaug is these days, when compared to its glory days of the mid 90s. Compare this version to any 3.0 version and youíll be blown away.

The rest of the show is uneventful, another average-awesome night in the midst of one of the best tours of the band's career.
