Phish.net is a non-commercial project run by Phish fans and for Phish fans under the auspices of the all-volunteer, non-profit Mockingbird Foundation.
This project serves to compile, preserve, and protect encyclopedic information about Phish and their music.
The Mockingbird Foundation is a non-profit organization founded by Phish fans in 1996 to generate charitable proceeds from the Phish community.
And since we're entirely volunteer – with no office, salaries, or paid staff – administrative costs are less than 2% of revenues! So far, we've distributed over $2 million to support music education for children – hundreds of grants in all 50 states, with more on the way.
Review by forbin1
Poor Heart: Not bad for an opener..gets the show started on a fast pace...a pretty standard version...
Wolfman's Brother: Still in it's infancy...doesn't stray out of the box..pretty tame..almost studio like..
Rift: Nothing crazy..keeps the pace going...
Night Moves: Just a quick little jam..while Page makes a move on the chessboard...
Stash: Not one of my favorite songs..but this one has a nice dark jam to it..keeps the fast pace going in the set..
Acoustic Army: Debuted just a few months prior..and only around for '95..it gives the set a nice breather...
Fog that Surrounds: A song that had just debuted a few nights earlier..and obviously still a work in progress..kept the set flowing in a nice direction..this rather quick version is nothing fancy..
Theme: Another fairly new song..this one debuted the past spring..so it was still in it's infancy as well...but that didn't stop them from exploring this song right off the bat..unfortunately this version doesn't go too deep...it stays relatively close to home..
Tela: A crowd favorite..not mine unfortunately..should be noted that Page changes a lyric around..instead of "Looks down from the Multibeast"..he sings "Looks down on the river"...
David Bowie: Always an excellent way to close a set..for the first few minutes..we're bobbing along nicely..then somewhere around the 9 minute mark..we take a sharp left..and now were starting to pick up some steam..right to the finish line...this one doesn't really get out there at all...
Highlights set I:
Stash, Theme, and Bowie
CTB: Page does his usual goodness with this one..
Gin: Stays relatively close to the gin theme..the boys were still tinkering with this jam...winter '95 would show them finding their groove with it...
Llama: Everyone loves to catch a Llama..Trey does a nice job with his solo in this one..
Simple: Nice little jam in the beginning..then gets a little spacey before emerging into
Keyboard Calvary: This was only around this tour...I think the band could've gotten the same effect if they just kept going with Simple..but it's a cool little number the band did..
Slave: An unusual version..There's some pretty nice playing by Trey and Fishman on the vacuum too...Fall '95 had some killer slaves...this one was almost there...Still had a nice peak to it..
Hello My Baby: Only the second performance..
Lizards: Nothing out of the ordinary with this one..well played though..
Antelope: Wow...out of the gate..non stop..high energy...great playing by Trey and Fish on this one..gets a bit spacey towards the end..
E: ADITL: Another song to debut in '95...Thought it was a nice way to encore..I mean who doesn't like catching a Beatles tune?
Highlights from Set II:
Slave and Antelope
Out of 5 stars I'd give this about a 3
