Phish: new archival release Deer Creek '95

Another archival Phish release is available for streaming and download: 06/19/1995 Deer Creek Music Center, Noblesville, IN:

On June 19, 1995 Phish played the tenth show of their 22-date summer tour at Deer Creek Music Center in Noblesville, IN – a modern amphitheater in the Indianapolis suburbs with a capacity of just under 25,000, surrounded at the time by corn fields. It was Phish’s first Deer Creek show of 23 to-date and reserved tickets cost $20.00. The band was at a creative zenith on the heels of an impressive fall ’94 tour that yielded most of the tracks for ‘A Live One’ (released June 27th). They were playing mainly amphitheaters with two-night stands at Red Rocks, The Mann, Jones Beach, Great Woods, and Sugarbush - and had just dropped ten new songs leading up to summer.

Set I highlights included the Theme From The Bottom opener, AC/DC Bag > Tela, a stunning Reba, and muscular Run Like An Antelope closer. Set II commenced after a “sixteen minute” setbreak and featured a hot Simple > David Bowie opening sequence, mid-set You Enjoy Myself, Acoustic Army, and a deconstructed Possum. Set II ran long and the A Day In The Life encore was cut on the 90-minute video tape, but complete audio survived to convey the full significance of Phish’s Deer Creek debut.

Setlist and notes from phish.net:

SET 1: Theme From the Bottom > Poor Heart, AC/DC Bag > Tela, Punch You in the Eye, Reba, Strange Design, Rift > Cavern > Run Like an Antelope

SET 2: Simple -> David Bowie, The Mango Song, Loving Cup, Sparkle > You Enjoy Myself, Acoustic Army, Possum

ENCORE: A Day in the Life

Trey teased Call to the Post in Reba and Mind Left Body Jam in Bowie.
