Phish to Release 12/7/95 Show

Twitter user @Duanebase uncovered an unlisted Phish release scheduled for November 12. The show is the December 7, 1995 stop in Niagara Falls, NY at the Niagara Falls Convention Center. Phish’s ’95 Fall Tour is revered for a few things: The sheer length of the tour (the tour lasted from October through New Year’s Eve) and the “You Enjoy Myself” that appeared during the December 9 show in Albany, NY. This particular show features a first set “Slave,” an early version of “Taste” known at the time as “Taste That Surrounds” and a set-ending “Mike’s Groove” featuring a “Digital Delay Loop Jam.”

Here is the full setlist courtesy of and stay tuned for an official announcement from the band in the coming days.

Wow! My very first Phish show. The Mike’s into Weekapaug is such a “Drum/Trance” Jam.

Digital Delay Loop Jam…That’s code for “A really boring part”

My first show also – missed the Old Home Place due to running late and pre-show burning – after the Slave and Possum – both of which I’d never heard before – I was hooked for life. “Who are these guys and how are they so good at fucking with my head?” Venue was knowm to have the worst sound in the Northern Hemishpere – booming cavern of a shit hole – yet Phish sounded amazing. Nice pick!
