Review by ADAWGWYO

ADAWGWYO This was my 2nd show, having just seen my first the night before. We drove the 6 hours back to Laramie(U of WY) after the SLC show so I at least got to sleep in my own bed for a spell. I went down with my high school bro that got me into Phish(1st show 8/20/93), my girlfriend and her best friend. The two girls had never seen Phish before and also had never ingested hallucinogens. Popped both those cherries in one shot!

To be honest I don't remember much of this show or details pertaining to even the journey to/from. I do remember the weather this night was much better than the next night, as well as a lightning storm over Denver during the Squirming Coil encore. It seems like the piano solo outro during Coil has conjured up more than one storm at shows (see:7/28/98, 6/12/10) I've attended, and everytime it happens I experience déja vu.

Anyways, as I relisten to this concert I am certain that the songs I get the most enjoyment out of now, are probably not the same as when I attended. This Theme From the Bottom is really good considering this is the third one ever. A lot of emotion in this version and Trey's solo doesn't disappoint. The Antelope climax is different as it kind of dissolves into the Rye Rye Rocco part as compared to the usual skreetching peak.

Second set for me now is all about the Acoustic Army and this beautiful Slave. The Wedge also sounds great on these AUDs. Mike's bass sounds so deep at Red Rocks. Anyone that has seen Phish at Red Rocks knows that sound. That earth-rumbling, deep, gutoral feeling. You can pick it out on any audience recording and it's like, yeah, I remember that feeling.

Nice Coil encore as I mentioned before.

The Marc Nutter AUDs of this on the spreadsheet are sonically delicious. Or, they make SonicSense(.com)... if you get my drift. ;) Marc's a good guy, sold me my first mics. Thanks Marc

Review by YorkvilleBeerLover

YorkvilleBeerLover One of my first shows in about 3 years. Living in Denver at the time. What can I say, Red Rocks is visually amazing. Does anyone remember the lightening storm 2nd set or is it just me? Can't really remember much but I know I loved the song choices throughout. Back then I was really into Antelope, SOAM, and Squiring Coil - they played all 3 and I was very happy.

spreaditround PHISH, FRIDAY 06/09/1995
Morrison, CO
Soundcheck: Acoustic Army (x2), Jam, Taste, Cry Baby Cry

SET 1:

My Friend, My Friend: Standard.

Divided Sky: One of the best Phish songs at one of the best venues. Good stuff!

Strange Design: Standard. >

The Oh Kee Pa Ceremony: Standard. >

AC/DC Bag: Standard. >

Theme From the Bottom: Standard.

Taste: Standard.

Sparkle: Standard. >

Run Like an Antelope: Solid for sure and the perfect way to end the set. Interesting that this version is peak less and takes a backdoor path to the Rye Rocco section.

SET 2:

Split Open and Melt: Gnarly way to open the second set! This tune has been played 342 times. It has opened the second set 11 times (none in 3.0). This one is a bit herky jerky to me. The signal that begins the run to the finale at 11:46 gets a big cheer. The finale is strong for sure.

The Wedge: Standard.

Scent of a Mule: Standard.

Cavern: Standard. >

David Bowie: Fairly average for this era. But stick this in the 97 and forward era and it would surely be considered a good or great version.

Acoustic Army: Standard.

Sweet Adeline: Standard.

Slave to the Traffic Light: Pretty solid offering, Trey gives the ending a good run.


The Squirming Coil: Fantastic! Page has a gorgeous 4 minute solo. Wonderful encore!

Summary: Solid show. Nothing crazy. Melt was cool. 3.5/5.

Replay Value: Split Open and Melt

Part of the soundcheck's jam consisted of 25 or 6 to 4.
