spreaditround PHISH, MONDAY 06/26/1995
Saratoga Springs, NY
Soundcheck: Time Loves A Hero > Dog Log/Time Loves A Hero mashup, Nellie Kane, Santana Instrumental, Rocky Mountain Way

SET 1:

My Friend, My Friend: I like the creepy loops at the end.

Don't You Want To Go? Standard.

Bathtub Gin: Standard.

NICU: Standard. >

The Sloth: Standard.

My Mind's Got a Mind of its Own: Standard. Standard.

It's Ice: Standard. >

Dog Faced Boy: Standard. >

Tela: Standard. >

Possum: Smoker! Would recommend. Many a melted face when the lights went up for set break.

SET 2:

Down with Disease[1] Some of it is just noise but plenty of it is engaging and upbeat with intense sections. It’s not for the faint of heart and those that grew up on 3.0 Phish will likely not enjoy this. Exquisite segue into Free. Would recommend. ->

Free: First jammed version! It has some filler but most of it is awesome especially the last 6 minutes! Would recommend. >

Poor Heart: Sick little interlude before Page’s solo makes this one a bit unique. Super high energy. >

You Enjoy Myself: Dialed in from beginning to end. Trey is on fire. Crushes both Notes and his solo is a screaming shred fest. Would recommend!

Strange Design: Standard. >

Run Like an Antelope: Barnburner for sure. Beautiful sustained note by Trey in the midst of the chaos adds to the intensity.


Sleeping Monkey: Standard. >

Rocky Top: Standard.

Summary: First set is kind of first setty but the Possum smokes. The entire second set is awesome. Really strong show overall, 4.2/5.

Replay Value: Possum, Down with Disease, Free, You Enjoy Myself, Run Like an Antelope
