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.

    also hate the thought of July 4th in jail…i mean trying to dance at Jones Beach

  2. Kaveh Says:

    Thanks @Miner for the dates.

    Personally, I didn’t think BG was that bad when I was there for the NYE two night shows of 2008.

  3. Multibeast Says:

    So the ‘big’ west coast tour untrue?

  4. snowbank Says:

    I was reading at as BG _> other dates-> Colorado. Otherwise there are two weeks without shows.

  5. snowbank Says:

    I’m thinking Bader Field sounds really nice. Hotels in the area. Keep the party rockin in AC. Just about the same cost to get to NYC as Chicago.

    I see what you did there, Miner.

    I totally hear you, but as someone who can work a full day and still make it to JB by showtime, I won’t complain all that much 😉

  8. voopa Says:

    garret- I saw GD at Oracle about 25 times…just like seeing a band in any basketball/hockey arena, IMO. Plus chill WC/Bay Area vibe (inside).

  9. btb Says:

    Phishileaks, huh?

    Looks like BTB Fest is on. Gonna rock Cinci, Pitts and finish at home – not too shaby!

  10. garretc Says:

    Nice voopa, good to know. I think I’ve only been in Oracle once for a Dubs game, so I can’t even speculate how it would work out musically.

    Can’t be a whole lot worse than BG, not that BG is all that bad, but it’s also not particularly splendid either. Plus, you know, bigger, which would be nice

  11. Multibeast Says:

    Shoosh. That 11.27.98 Weekapaug is pretty hot.

  12. Lycanthropist Says:

    @BTB

    don’t eat anyone this year.

  13. voopa Says:

    Word Multi, love the Woosta-paug. May have to revisit tonight.

  14. Robear Says:

    ::checks phish drygoods for new WW t-shirt designs in my size::

  15. sumodie Says:

    AC is by far my top pick for Leg 1: 3 nights outdoors on a gen adm field – my absolute fav setup

    Add on 2x Portsmouth (which has been gen adm in 09-10) and that’s one hot looking 5 show run

    Awesome!

    but at this point just Woosta & SPAC look possible for me. Too funny that phish.com got hacked -sorry, Coran

  16. Robear Says:

    you cats talking like the ophishal announcement came! had to check the site.

  17. Mike in Austin Says:

    Where’s my Live Bait?! Wait. We don’t have dates yet?

  18. sumodie Says:

    http://www.thebarnpresents.com/where-are-the-phish-dates-summer-2012-edition-5525.html

    Anyone see this dude’s research into the number of days from Phish announcing a tour till the first show? He went back ~20 years

    80 days = avg # of days b/t Phish announcing tour & playing first show of tour

    And here we are 100 days away from Leg 1 in Worcester and up in arms about wanting dates. History says we need more patience, oops

  20. BingosBrother Says:

    Me too rob. This is a house of lies.

  21. joemeg Says:

    Can’t stop listening to 4-16-99. Probably hadn’t played it in at least a year, now I’m sure I’ll be listening to this run for the next month. It doesn’t get any better.

  22. William H. Bonney Says:

    Evening Gents….
