fhqwhgads If you're on the fence about buying this archival release, I'll try to persuade you with these 4 words: "Stash-like jam in Possum!" Maybe closer to Dave's Energy Guide territory than Stash, really, but this entire show is absolutely worth hearing in multitrack soundboard quality, especially if you haven't heard it before, or if your knowledge of Phishtory isn't as encyclopedic as you'd like it to be. The LivePhish.com blurb advertises this show as "Summer 1995 Space Camp" material, and though Summer '95 isn't every phan's idea of peak Phish, it was a very transformational, paradigm-shifting time: you got your August '93, with the breakthrough into nightly Type-II jamming, then your Summer '94 which integrates the August '93 sound into a precision machine led by astonishing guitar pyrotechnics, then your Fall '94 which gets out there into the territory that would continue to be mined in Summer '95, though each of the latter two aforementioned tours have their own characteristics (at least by virtue of the seasons in which they were played, where many phans will swear there's a notable difference between Fall Phish and Summer Phish and their concomitant conditions of indoor Phish and outdoor Phish.) I'm learning not to spoil the surprises of a given show in my reviews, so I won't blow up this show's spot by giving away all its secrets, but to reiterate, DWD -> Free and YEM are not the only reasons to listen to this show (though they are very good reasons!) Someone jam chart that Possum immediately, though, for Pete Carini's sake, is alls I know! Good luck and have as much phun as possible. Sincerely, @fhqwhgads
