Larry_Hood To the younger Phish fan this past year's Seven Below -> Ghost may have put Albany on the map as far as legendary performances, but to veteran listeners that jam will still probably rank slightly below the monumental YEM played nearly 14 years earlier

Along with the chaotic rendition on Halloween the Albany '95 YEM consistently ranks as one of the great performances of the song in its greatest year: 1995. At just under 35 mins this YEM cant match Halloween's on length but the quality of the jam more than makes up. Building through a Piper-esque chord progression Trey takes over and begins the customary '95 hosing. After fifteen or so glorious minutes the jam enters a thundering BD section, alongside colors from Page. As Page takes over Trey supplies an incredibly funky rhythm. They jam begins to break down leaving Trey playing the legendary "Theme From Shaft". Doing his best Isaac Hayes Trey murmurs the words to the shows theme and begins what has become know as the "Silent Jam".

Though the silent jam isn't the most glorious moment on tape it will none the less satisfy you as will all of this YEM. Remarkably good AUDs of this show exist though many fans having been begging for this show to be added to the LivePhish Series.
