n00b100 A delightful show, to say the least, if not a pantheon show or anything; that being said, the DVD of the show really ought to be a cornerstone of your Phish collection, as this is the kind of show you'd want preserved in video form. The C&P jam is magical, overflowing with energy and excitement (how many times has a song been played in consecutive shows since the early days?), and a fan favorite, but I've always loved the Antelope more - it's what I think of as a prototypical mid-90s Antelope, full of fire and fury and a massive release from the tension of the C&P jam. I'm not sure what else I'd immediately recommend (the opening Ya Mar's fun, and the Hood's quite strong), but the whole show is worth listening to, mainly due to the remarkable Fishman/Perazzo chemistry (Perazzo has a pretty solid case as best guest musician ever, IMO). It's one of my favorite shows from a year that isn't exactly my favorite year.

Plus, watching the front row kids dancing is just priceless.
