Phish Announces Dayton 1995 Live Archival Release & SiriusXM Special
Phish will issue an official recording of their November 30, 1995 concert at the Ervin J. Nutter Center in Dayton, Ohio this Friday, October 4 via LivePhish.com. The band is previewing the set as part of a “Phish In Dayton” special airing this week on SiriusXM’s Phish Radio hosted by archivist Kevin Shapiro.
Shapiro spins the famed “Tweezer” > “Makisupa Policeman” > “Run Like An Antelope” from the 1995 concert during the special as well as other standout sequences Phish played at the venue in 1997 and 2017. The special also features previously unreleased audio of “Also Sprach Zarathustra” (aka “2001”) > “David Bowie” from November 17, 1994 at Dayton’s Hara Arena.
“Phish In Dayton” next airs on SiriusXM’s Phish Radio (Channel 29) at 10 a.m. ET this morning (Tuesday, October 1), 4 p.m. ET tomorrow (Wednesday, October 2), 7 a.m. ET on Thursday, 5 p.m. ET on Friday, 3 p.m. ET on Saturday and 5 p.m. ET on Sunday. Friday’s broadcast comes as part of Phish Radio’s Dayton Day, which will also feature full show audio of November 30, 1995 at 9 p.m. ET and December 7, 1997 at 12 p.m. ET. Also coming up on Phish Radio is a new program entitled “HeadBands,” a weekly hour of music from the jam and psychedelic scenes that premieres on Thursday at 7 p.m. ET with a replay set for Sunday at 10 a.m. ET.
The quartet’s November 30, 1995 concert foreshadows the magic that would come at nearly every Phish show played in December 1995, arguably one of the best months in the band’s history. In addition to the wild “Tweezer” > “Makisupa Policeman” > “Run Like An Antelope,” other highlights include a gorgeous “Fast Enough For You,” an unusual “Scent Of A Mule,” a fierce “Free,” short-but-sweet “Bathtub Gin” and intense “Harry Hood” in which guitarist Trey Anastasio uses arpeggios to build to a peak as he tended to do that fall. Phish’s November 30, 1995 concert will be available for download and streaming through LivePhish.com this Friday.
