This week we have Scott Bernstein of YEMBlog back to do another guest pick. He wanted to share his memories from the classic 12.9.95 show from Albany, NY. This monstrous Fall Tour delivered show after show, and this is considered by many to be the best. We also have a great conversation with Scott to kick off the episode.
Scott and I guessed that they played more shows in the Fall of 1995 than they have any year since they've been back in Phish 3.0. May not be exactly true, but still, it was a tour (and year) of endurance, high powered jams and pushing boundaries.
As you probably already know, Scott is the editor of JamBase, and he and his team work their asses off to connect people with good music. Check it out and show your appreciation.
