OrangeSox Adding another positive review to this one... First, thanks @BurningShoreProphet for the videos, what a definite enhancement of the experience twenty years later!!!

The first set is no slouch, featuring a well refined CTB, road tested by this point in its introductory tour. The Runaway Jim delivers a nice dark and well wound solo by Trey that makes a Horn a nicely placed moment of pacing to set up a great run in PYITE>Esther>Chalkdust that hardly pauses for a gasp at any point, each particularly well handled this night, the Chalkdust especially has some mustard. Theme's wall of sound ending is not as pronounced as other versions from this tour and Acoustic Army is just that, but Split Open and Melt returns the set to pounding, this is a solid version and well placed in the set. Billy Breathes was getting a lot of attention but could've been omitted and just let the Cavern close the set out.

The second set starts with an instrumental like the first, this time an always welcome Frankenstein. Poor Heart holds its place before Mike's Groove makes its mark as the centerpiece of this set, and it DOES deliver. The Mike's Song has several phases, each punctuated by Trey's work with his loops and mini-kit, and provides a really healthy peek into what made Mike's such a benchmark of 95. The Weekapaug is the highlight of the set and show and needs to be heard by any fan of the tune., no doubt about it. Lawn Boy has its best placement that i can think of at the moment, coming smoothly from the fragments of the Weekapaug explosion and setting up a raging BBFCFM whose move into Kung is welcome and smoothly handled. The Suspicious Minds that pops out of it is unexpected and perfect, some of the best Zero Man and wonderful to watch. Possum closes out the set with a full head of steam, barely a moment to break in this set, which is easily one of the best by this point in the Fall 95 tour. The momentum was in full swing by this point toward one of the greatest months in Phish history...
