Superb SBD/AUD matrix recording. Going back to these '95 shows while I await the summer tour to start. This show is above-average for the summer tour.

Overall - 8.5/10

1st Set

YA MAR - Great opener - one of my favorite choices for the opening slot. Upbeat, as always, and especially tight solos from Trey and Page, with melodic interplay and staccato from Trey (7:00 mark). 8/10

LLAMA - Absolutely rips. Fast pace and well-performed. I don't love this song but I appreciate the skill involved to play it and this version is impressive. Typical type 1. 7/10

IF I COULD - One of the first Phish songs that I heard and fell in love with. This version contains a unique intro and a gorgeous type-1 outro. Trey's voice sounds nice a raspy here, Page fills in and the chorus sounds on point with the harmony. The piano/guitar portion at 4:21 is especially beautiful. 9.5/10

A.T.R. - Standard fare. Well-played. 8/10.

IT'S ICE - Dark, eerie version. Tension and suspense fill the "under the ice jam" and Page reaches for the murky ambiance. One truly can feel the ice jabs from Pages keys here at 7:10 - I think I hear Fishman on the vacuum for a bit too, very cool. 9.5/10

PRINCE CASPIAN - Only 3 min here.

SPLIT OPEN & MELT - 17+ min beast here. Up tempo - the boys play this tune much faster than in the 3.0 era.
