Episode 18 - Phish at Hershey Park 1995 (Set two)


On the newest episode of Beast in the Maze, Brian and I finish our first (virtual) live Phish show, with the second set of the Hershey park show that we began in Episode 16. 

Featuring an extended "Mike's Song>Weekapaug Groove," the second set gets a bit more "type 2" than the opening set. We still get a taste of Gamehendge in the form of "Wilson," as well as a couple of songs from the extremely early days of the band which feature writing from Nancy as well as the Dude of Life.

In many ways, the set represents one of the peak eras of the band, as they had just put out A Live One earlier in the year, which would go on to become the best-selling album of their entire catalog. There's a little bit of everything they've done up to this point represented on these setlists, and for fans of A Picture of Nectar, there are several tracks from that album played here, in particular.

Join us as we discuss the highs and lows, the guitar solos, the different sorts of ways that the band improvises, and much more. To whet your appetite, here's the performance of "Wilson" from the show. Hope you'll tune in, and enjoy!
