Five More From Summer ’95

Great Woods 7-1-95

Let’ start the week off with another dip into the primordial psychedelia of Summer ’95—the band’s most experimental tour ever.


Mike’s Song” 6.20 II, Cuyahoga Falls, OH

This menacing version descended upon Blossom, leaving many wide-eyed fans wondering what had just happened.



David Bowie” 6.15 II, Atlanta, GA

Another one of Summer ’95’s top-shelf “Bowies.”



Tweezer > Gumbo” 6.28 II, Wantagh, NY

Another multi-faceted and experimental monster, featuring “Dave’s Energy Guide” and a jam on The Breeder’s “Cannonball,” from the first night at Jones Beach.



Runaway Jim ->  Makisupa” 7.2 II, Sugarbush, VT

A hard-edged and grinding jam eventually melts into “Makisupa” on the first night of Sugarbush’s summer-ending precursor to The Clifford Ball.



Split Open and Melt” 7.1 II, Mansfield, MA

A first set joyride into seething musical realms.

    I can’t wait until the dates come out so we can all register our complaints and lay all of the blame for the heavy saturation of east coast shows on RL. Joy!!!!!

    I can’t wait to party down on that GA field in New Jersey… a place that I’ve never been to before.

    I blame on my phish-date-anxiety on this board. Prior to, years past, I would jump nonchalantly open the mail box, pull out the schivice and say sweet phish is going to be at SPAC and call it a day. Not anymore.

    ^^ so true

  8. lumpyhead Says:

    ^^ hahaha

  9. albert walker Says:

    just think how obsessive we’d be if Trey jammed in 3.0 instead of pranced

    ^Back when you actually needed the money for the postal money order…in order TO order…tickets.

    Now, you just need a card and (almost) everybody gets multiple cards involved…to get their necessary tickets.

    I know all that paper and mailorder stuff created a lot of paper waste, but at least you had a better shot at tickets (esp. if you lived close to Burl.). And the true fans always filled the seats, paying face all the while. I say, bring that system back. It’ll help the post office, recycling plants and all of us dedicated fans. Hey, I can dream, can’t I? 🙂

    I thought the problem was the lack of pop in his prance?
    Just another flaw in my listening.

    ^ heard dat bhizzle.

    Speaking of jerz, who’s got the beta on where to stay in AC?

    Never been.

    I don’t want to get eaten by a rabid wook-pack post show, so what’s a pamp place in decent proximity to Bader Field?

    Please & thanks!

    water club at borgata

  15. Corey Says:

    Not sure how giving the recy. plants more paper to pulp helps them. But, in my mind…

  16. dusty Says:

    mail order envelope art…a lost form for fans. Some really cool ones from the dead days. My favorite thing about phish’s MO was all the money orders for each night. Helped weed out people and such a trip how focused you had to be…at least for this stoner.

    Re: AC lodging, Tropicana was cheap ($75-100/night) and right on the Boardwalk within stumbling distance to Boardwalk Hall.

    Love being back in the Pac NW! Great coffee, herb, nature, and a whole lot less angst than the east coast.

    nice duke

    one more time for the ticket wackos:

    did anyone here get shut out of a summer ’11 show?

    i’m thinking a very very low percentage so take it easy. also, how many people here do i have to remind NOT to PTBM because you’ll only get lawns (that is, unless you want lawns)?

  20. albert walker Says:

    yes. that’s true I forgot. Borgota is a bit down the street. but way worth it IMO.

  21. gavinsdad Says:

    how many people here were lucky enough to get lottery tix but also hated what they got from ptbm?

    how many people had to spend many hours of bullshit and networking trying to get rid of lawns?

    (step in here admiral ackbar)

    Got everything I needed Gdad

    The BBoard provides!

  23. albert walker Says:

    although I dig the concept of the old school mail order i never did onewhich is what’s funny.

    sounds like it was great but never felt obsessed enough with Phish to do a mailorder. tickets always seemed to flow around.

    now I’m just a bored yuppie with nothin better than to obsess.

  24. gavinsdad Says:

    how many people here already hate the lack of jamming in Summer ’12?

  25. Selector J Says:

    I remember that band Death was hyped like crazy a couple of years back when they came to SXSW. Forgot all about them. I’ll have to give that album a listen.
    I remember them because those same dudes apparently had a reggae band called Lambsbread. I should probably go seek that stuff out and rack up some hipster cred.

    By the way, anyone else coming to SXSW this year besides gdad?
