doohhood Simply put this show is one of the most underrated shows of all-time. 12/17/95 doesn't get the props it deserves because of all the other jewels contained in that month & year (Hershey 12/1 - MSG 12/31). This should be part of a top ten list of all-time underrated Phish shows. Heck just do a December '95 show rankings list.

The first set is fine and chock full of perfectly placed 1st set nuggets, but the flow of this entire show is what stands out to my ears. This was the last show before the break, wherein to think of how many shows they played in '95, you could very well say they might have been as practiced, crisp and sharp as they have ever been. Dare I say that that for the entire month of December, they may have been playing at a creative peak of sorts. The transitions that tie the seven songs between Maze & Reprise together are undoubtedly some of the most creative and thoughtful which I have ever heard. The 2nd set was highlighted by Hood, which was pure magic.
