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.

    jones beach is beat. only been there once and that was enough.

  2. joemeg Says:

    Jones beach is beat, you got that right, but it is much much better than it used to be, though that’s not saying much.

    It’s convenient for me though, probably will be able to have family babysit for at least one night, so i will definitely be there.

    Woahh…tour dates everywhere. Bill Graham is a dump. Seen alot phil/furthur shows there, syringes on the floor, tenderloin sketchballz, bathroom basements from hell. Other than that it is a free for all. Sound is ok, easy to get to…

    I to think 2-3 night run at Oracle would be awesome. Ive seen a few shows there, solid arena, sound is good down low. Great fuckin lot, with BART backed up to it.

    SF>LA>OR>Jackson Hole>Denver???

  4. JeffieM Says:

    Those summer tour dates look a bit like I’ll be headed to Bonnaroo for my only summer Phish.

    Not sure how I feel about that.

  12. phoammhead Says:

  13. joe Says:

    I HAVE to go to AC this year. I’ve been playing a good amount of live poker and doing fairly well lately. pretty sure I’d do even better dosed out of my mind 🙂

  14. joe Says:

    only time I’ve been to AC, I stayed at Courtyard Marriott and it was nice enough. might be looking for something dirtier this time around

  15. lumpyhead Says:

    I’m booked at the courtyard marriott for AC.

  16. joe Says:

    digging this one tonight

  17. Gavinsdad Says:

    Crazymaking. All I know is last nite I was very up front with the missus that I’d get her dates that I’d be in Chicago In July (check) and what June Phish I’d hit this week (almost there).

  18. Gavinsdad Says:

    Occupy Joes Jar: AC

  19. joe Says:

    have one hit of the msg jar occupation left.

  20. Dorn76 Says:

    I too willbe earning valuable Marriott points.

  21. bhizzle Says:

    this firestone double jack is starting to make my eyes feel fuzzy

  22. joemeg Says:

    and about 4-16-99, the first set is so unbelievable, you’d be happy with just that. The second set is just gravy. But Holy Fucking Gravy!

  23. Kaveh Says:

    OK BBers, saying the dates that we have seen are legit; what Leg 1 show(s), if you could only do one show or one stop, which would you do? Alpine Valley is the closet for me. Or should I stay home and do couch tour and wait for Leg II. Throw me your thoughts.

  24. lumpyhead Says:

    Atlantic City.

    and that ain’t hypothetical, it’s a reality for me.

  25. joemeg Says:

    Worcester or AC. If I had to pick just one, I guess AC
