Review by Mikesgroover
An outstanding, 12-minute Possum opener gets the show off to a rollicking start. Weigh gets dusted off for the first time in 89 shows, with Page's piano the star of this version.
Stash gives us the first taste of the developing Summer '95 "Space Camp" sound. It goes pretty far out there, but only briefly abandons the theme completely before returning.
Other first set highlights include excellent versions of If I Could and the Slave closer.
To put the second set in perspective, it features six songs in a row that are brand new to Phish audiences, broken up only by a pretty structured Maze. That's a lot to digest for a Wednesday night crowd in Boise.
Spocks Brain is a really weird composition, but the second performance of Theme finds the song already gaining momentum. Around the 8 minute mark the jam gets sinister, with feedback-drenched space and atmospheric keyboards. About 2 minutes of classic '95 weirdness here.
The second performance of Lonesome Cowboy Bill is preceded by a funny intro from Fish, who tells the audience it’s an obscure song. Hinting at a Halloween to come, he mentions The Velvet Underground’s “Loaded”. “You should go out and get it,” he urges.
A solid night of new material introductions, and the Stash and Theme have tasty snippets of Summer '95-style jamming.
