Reba did not have the whistling ending. Weekapaug was unfinished.

Review by HotPale

HotPale My 1st Phish I had some understanding of what things may look like having been to some big concerts already, but in all reality I had no clue. My older brother had been to some Phish and Grateful Dead shows and I had heard some stories, but none of them had truly prepared me for what I was in for. My crew had just finished up mid-terms/finals the day before for we were mostly in our junior year of high school. That Saturday afternoon we walked into town after partying all night in the vacant apt. of the convalescent home my buddy's dad owned. (multiple complaints and police phone calls) Phish's tour bus drove by us and Fish yelled, "which way to the venue?" I pointed straight ahead as they drove by and my friends laughed at me and said that was the band. When we got into town I had never seen anything like this scene. Dudes walking around with foot long nugs calling out, "Kind bud" and the like. I asked my friend if it was always like this and he said with the breakup of the Grateful Dead Phish's fan base had increased tremendously. Shakedown was transforming from the Dead to Phish and I was a witness, a participant, a new fan.
The shows were incredible. The band vs. audience chess game confused me, but I loved it anyway. We had amazing second row floor seats for both nights and the tix were $ was good...the boys jammed hard and I believe I fell in love that weekend. I knew this would not be the end...took another 10 months to get to my next show, but I got there...thank you Phish for the good times and the bad times!

Review by westbrook

westbrook The first set is thoroughly average for the tour, but the second set is worth seeking out for a lightning-fast Reba and a very strong Mike's Groove. This Mike's is one of the most powerful type 1 versions of the song and Simple gets into a pretty nice rocking jam. Weekapaug has a percussive jam in it with Trey on the mini kit before it shifts down into an ambient outro which sounds more like a 94 jam than 95 if you ask me.

3 star show. Definitely listen to the Reba and Mike's Groove

Review by dr32timmymeat

dr32timmymeat AC/DC Bag, Suzy Greenberg, Sample in a Jar and Cavern all in the same show... that's a crazy docket of 4:30, no-jam rock songs.

It's fine, but with the dust still unsettled on all of the craziness from the first half of December 95 -- just look at the ratings of the previous two weeks of shows -- this is a starkly straightforward show.

Reba is really solid, and Mike's is sufficiently far-out. And the > Simple > Weekapaug never gets old.

But for those who like to psychoanalyze what the guys were thinking before shows, it seems like they were trying to get to Night 2 of this run and then move on to NYC.

Review by spreaditround

spreaditround SET 1: Buried Alive, AC/DC Bag: Standard. >

Taste That Surrounds: Feel like this is better than most from this tour.

Ya Mar, The Sloth, Divided Sky, Dog Faced Boy: Standard.

Julius: Hot fire! >

Suzy Greenberg: Standard.

SET 2: Sample in a Jar: Standard.

Reba: Feel like this is an under the radar version with plenty of heart. Would relisten!

Scent of a Mule: Another charted version. Can’t stand it.

Cavern: Interesting placement. >

Mike's Song: Standard. >

Simple: Charted version. Not sure why? ->

Weekapaug Groove: Charted version. If you like Trey on the drum kit like on Free from this era, you will dig this. Me? Not so much. >

The Squirming Coil: Another brilliant and lengthy Page solo. Also, the note Trey smokes and sustains going into the vocal outro is choice. Page’s Coil solo’s this tour were by and large, brilliant.

ENCORE: Fire: Standard.

Summary: A lot of this looks sexy on paper, but is not in the same universe at 12.14. Definitely middle of the road for this tour and as such I am calling this one a 3.7 out of 5 as all that I would revisit here would be the Reba.
