Drowned was for me a dream come true, since it was the song I most wanted to hear brought back from Quadrophenia The Mike's Song to close the set was the best version I've ever heard I own about versionsbut I'm anxious to hear Hershey at least I think it is Hershey at which a great MikeS was allegedly performed.
The MikeS has some truly Phish New Years Eve 1995 Live at Madison Square Garden grooves in it no bullshit tramps dissonant jamincl. Very gentle close to an insane set of Phish. Weekapaug was arguably the best version I've ever heard -- just sick, non-stop jams It was also twice as long as the average Weekapaug well, maybe not twice as long as average Weekapaugat about 13 minutes, and it segued magnificently into Sea and Sand.
YEM was very good, with some serious Oye Como Va jamming at times from Page and Trey especially this is not uncommon, of course, but doesn't usually occur with the same degree of intensity as it did in this version. I can Francine McGee Delirium of many YEMs that are comparable to this version in their gloriousness Sanity was the first since the Murat in June 94, and was quite a treat.
I had forgotten at the time that they had played Sanity twice in '94, and thought it had been the first since '92 oh well. It was a remarkably fun version, though, and you could tell that the band enjoyed playing it. Frankenstein was typical, albeit a killer closer. I cannot recommend it enough -- but get the whole show, for Icculus' sake, and don't pick and choose sets like a tyro.
The show as a whole needs to be listened to and admired. For those of you who didn't make it, I am sorry, but you'll get it on tape and you were thought of. Anyone afraid of improvisation and jamming should stay the fuck away from this show! Best wishes to all, and thanks to Phish, for making this NYE run the best run of four shows -- Dead or Phish New Years Eve 1995 Live at Madison Square Garden -- that many of us had ever seen!!
Few if any predicted that this New Year's show would -- even years later — be glowingly referred to by Phish fans as one of the best Phish shows ever performed. Reba was fiery with non-stop action from Trey. A great version, up there with fan favorites like Lowell and 'ween Mockingbird had some glaring mistakes from Trey if he only played this Together So Much Love To Give often Sparkle and Chalk Dust pleased the crowd even more, and ended the first set powerfully.
Drowned was for me a dream come true, since it was the song I most wanted to hear brought back from Quadrophenia. It was passionately and melodiously jammed out, and is still, to this day, a version to hear at all costs. The Mike's Song to close the set contains some of Phish's Phish New Years Eve 1995 Live at Madison Square Garden brilliant improvisation to date. It also Phish New Years Eve 1995 Live at Madison Square Garden with a mellowing digital delay loop jam.
A very serene end to an enchanting set of Phish. People were awe-struck by what they'd witnessed, and almost afraid of what was to come. The Weekapaug went from the high-energy, mellifluous soloing we all know and love into an improvisation so spine-tinglingly good that itcharmed people into thinking that it was composed. This jam segued beautifully into a gorgeous Sea and Sand, masterfully sung by Page. YEM contained a haunting, mesmerizing jam segment, which to this day commands respect.
Sanity was the first version since June '94, and was quite a treat the band seemed to enjoy it as much as the audience! Frankenstein was an appropriate close to a frighteningly awesome show.
At this point, I couldn't have cared less whether Phish played an encore. But they came out and buffalo-billed Johnny B. Goode, taking him for strong and performing a version that is still very compelling. The glorious improvisation at this show profoundly affected thousands of lives, including those of the band.
It's a tremendous, tremendous show. I'm not ever going to argue against that. Not the third-best show ever although even that would surely raise some eyebrowsthe third best show of the month. Not the best example. I still love these jams, but to me, of coursethey're missing that explosive je nais se quoi that made the month so legendary.
Lots of classic jams, lots of fun all around Or, at least, not in the same way. This doesn't really matter, in the end - the show's classic, beloved by just about everyone, and you'd have to listen to it no matter what if you want any sort of understanding as to why Phish is so beloved.
But, in one man's estimation at least, the longer Greg Haines Moments Eluding persist in your Phish fandom, the less you'll love it so much yourself.
This is a truly incredible show, make no mistake of that. But there are better. This concert has been dissected to the Phish New Years Eve 1995 Live at Madison Square Garden of, "Why bother? It's all been said. End of Set 2: Found myself floating somewhere in deep space, wondering where the Earth had gone. Completely forgot, until countdown, that it was NYE End of Set John Scott Demonstration 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 The Black Dog Spanners 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! Maybe, but hopefully it does this show justice. This has been my most consistent opinion for some time now about my favorite show whereas previously, "x" concert was my favorite for a day at most.
As a whole, it's very concise. Throughout the show, in all the highlights and one-off songs, there is a not a single wasted note or beat, or song that seems to "drag on. This Mike's Song starts out with an eerie jam that the band turn into beautiful ambient dissonance at the end of the DDLJ.
This was also the last set ofwhich is kind-of symbolic and poetic of itself. The Mike's Song had the audience waiting for Weekapaug, which would not be delivered until set III technically at that point in the show. To me that sums of It was a highlighted and heralded year that left fans wanting more. The following Sea and Sand is a nice and welcoming small song which leads into the 2-part YEM, where Trey is clearly the leader, but he's not "showboating.
