fhqwhgads It may just be because I slept overnight in between listening to Sets I and II of this show, but I find this one sort of exhausting. The sheer energy and virtuosity on display in 1995 (and Fall 1995, in particular) can tend towards that. This is also a typically stacked setlist for the time. Highlights include Demand, Slave to the Traffic Light, Possum, Reba, and Mike's Song -> Weekapaug Groove (with Digital Delay Loop Jam/general Type-II weirdness to end it.) The Split Open and Melt is pretty atonal(?) and harder to listen to, making this--as @waxbanks mentioned in his review--a "noob-unfriendly show." If you are new to Phish, though, and maybe have only heard shows from 2009-2017, you should really do yourself a favor and hear the laser-guided precision of Fall 1995.
