This show featured a visually spectacular Mule, which featured Trey playing guitar with his teeth and Page playing keyboards with his face and feet. Trey sang the verses of Fee through a megaphone. During Antelope, Trey substituted “Suck the deer shit from the side of this hole” for the “high gear of your soul” lyric. Possum included a Dave's Energy Guide tease. Weekapaug included a Divided Sky tease from Trey. Fish introduced Rosie as being about “a lonely man singing to his inflatable love doll.” Parts of this show were used in Mike Gordon’s 1997 short film Goodwood.

Review by dmacgil1123

dmacgil1123 This was my first Phish show ever and now that I look back at the night I had, I should've killed my friend's brother. You see, he was supposed to pick us up from a town just south of Worcester @ 4:20pm for my virgin show and supposedly the night of my life, but he didn't pick us up until 6:30pm and because of him we missed the whole first set, which, from the looks of it, seemed awesome. Years later I now think I should've killed him because come to find out the reason he was late was to score a bag of weed for our group... a bag of fucking schwag none the less! Instead of experiencing the lot and looking there (which later come to find out is extremely easy to find whatever one wants) I wasted my time for this fag... if you are out there, bushman, YOU SUCK DONKEY BALLS AND DESERVE TO DIE!

Review by Miguelito

Miguelito Both of the Great Woods ‘95 shows were a lot of fun to attend but for whatever reason the next night seems to be the more popular of the two. Perhaps that’s due to the availability of the soundboard or it’s due to the setlist. Regardless, this night has many gems and I think this show is arguably underrated.

With AC/DC Bag and Mule in the 1-2 opening slots, the band gives a nice, high energy sequence. Both are solid. After a quick Horn, the band plays Taste. This tune is noteworthy as being the final early version before the band reworked it into what would briefly become The Fog That Surrounds. Despite being short, this is a tight, energetic version.

Much of the rest of the set is solid but not particularly noteworthy until the Antelope. This version is a typical mid-90’s version, full of zest and a bit more extended than modern versions. While not as thrilling as the previous year’s Antelope (which knocked it out of the park, or the Woods), it still closes the set out nicely, with fun, alternate lyrics.

The Mike’s > Contact > Weekapaug Groove are the highlights of Set II but I like the opening sequence of 2001 and Possum > Ha Ha Ha. After the rare TMWSIY > Avenu Malkenu, we get to the meat of the set. I love this Mike’s, which instantly launches this set to the next level. This was a great year for Mike’s and this version was no exception, as it was high energy, exploratory.and generally awesome with a very interesting jam that starts around the 12 minute mark, eventually moving into a more ambient jam.

The transition into Contact is nice, and Contact in the middle here is fun and unexpected. In fact, by my count Contact has been between Mike’s and Weekapaug only 2 other times, the first time being 6.20.95 and more recently on 7.7.12. The Weekapaug that follows is a beast and is highly recommended. They close out the set with a lovely Coil, followed by Cracklin’ Rosie and Golgi in the encore slot.

Overall this is an enjoyable show with a couple of real highlights, particularly the Antelope and the Mike’s > Contact > Weekapaug segment.
