Review by Elmar

Elmar I arrived, breathless anticipation, barely having recovered from the night before (12/30/95 was also my first time seeing them), ready to gleefully accept anything they might care to share.

This concert has been dissected to the point of, "Why bother? It's all been said."

Briefly, from my (at the time) newbie perspective:

End of Set 1: Left plastered back in my seat, feeling like the Memorex Guy.

End of Set 2: Found myself floating somewhere in deep space, wondering where the Earth had gone.

Phish Space-Time Laboratory: May have witnessed the Big Bang.
(Completely forgot, until countdown, that it was NYE)

End of Set 3: Ground beneath my feet gradually becoming stable, leaving me intent on never missing another show.

Reality proved that an impossibility, but I sure did try...

Every so often, as I am doing right now, I haul out my copies of this run and play them back to back. After many concerts attended and many more listened to, these are still hard to beat.

Thank You, Boys!
