This was my first Phish show. I had a friend who worked the counter for Ticketmaster at the local mall (remember when they had those?), so she scored us some second row tickets.

I was, for all intents and purposes, a total newbie. I'd heard A Live One a few times ("what kind of music is this? it's not rock music"), but honestly had no idea what I was in for.

My memories of the actual music are vague. Stash raged. Coil was the track that most definitely caught my ear. I don't even remember what's being touted as a very good Tweezer. Trey was wearing a Hawaiian shirt, and I distinctly remembered he looked like a latter-day Tommy Chong. "Who the fuck are these guys? Who the fuck do THEY think they are?" was the thought that was going through my head most of the time.

Alas, something stuck. The next show I saw was Charlotte '96, and the next two after that were Hampton '97. I think we can all guess what happened after that....

welp, i was definitely a noob at this show. My initiation into Phish was the Rift album that my buddy turned me onto. Years later, i bought A Live One when it was released and my girlfriend at the time (who had no idea who Phish was) surprised me with tickets. I was totally impressed with the show even though i had little background except for the mention albums. i will always wonder who won the chess game. Anyway, it it nice to now know that the first Phish show i saw had a recommended Tweezer included. i need to get a copy of this show!

Had to throw in my tuppence. This Stash is really kind of a killer jam, and the tease is not 007, but ~Secret Agent Man~. Go watch the Repo Man, if ya don't believe me.

While not the overall monster that the 10/11 or 10/21 shows were, this one is definitely worth a listen, if you're in the fall '95 groove!

Mikesgroover A Tweezer and Scent of a Mule with some unique moments are the musical highlights of this show.

Opening with Makisupa, Trey announces he "woke up at 40 minutes to 5". Keywords sound like "Treybien...Gauge."

The first slow version of Poor Heart is met with a rousing cheer, and I have to admit that the song works better in this arrangement. Itís a shame they shelved this incarnation after three performances.

Stash has a unique ascending chord jam with that spacey 1995 tone and hints at the James Bond theme before before returning to the Stash theme. Rest of the first set is nothing special

An upbeat musical sequence opens the second set, but the highlight of the show is clearly the Tweezer. At around 14 minutes Trey gets on the percussion kit and the jam gets some nice, slow funkiness going on with some crashing, piano-led jamming reminiscent of Bathtub Gin in places.
At about the 18 minute mark, Tweezer sounds like itís going to go into Free, but returns to the Tweezer theme instead. The song ends by winding down slowly until it stops completey and Trey starts Billy Breathes.

The Scent duel is very unique and features Trey singing/babbling nonsense, and even some full-on vocal jamming with Mike chanting, something I don't think I've ever heard in Scent before.

A smooth Hood is strong but hardly standout. The first two Trey solos in Suzy have noticeable Tweezer teases that add a little extra fire to a short but sweet version.
