Episode 69: Fall '95 Highlights Pt. 3

Episode Summary

It’s been 20 years, folks, since the epic Fall 1995 tour. Everything changed for Phish in 1995 (as it did again in ’97, ’99, ’04, ’13 and ’15). But this signaled the beginning of a new era—bigger venues, bigger crowds, bigger expectations. And during this tour, Phish did what they do best. They delivered. Our friends Wade and Josh joined us for this equally epic 3-part episode, where we played and discussed some of the highlights from this Fall 1995 tour. In contrast to the Summer 1995 tour, these jams have an incredible level of focus and clarity. But they’re not jams to be taken lightly. They’re dense, heady. As Wade says, listening to Fall 1995 “is not a spectator sport.” Hope you’re geared up. The details for all 3 parts are below. As always, we ask you to follow us on Twitter and review us on iTunes.
