Phish Setlist from October 3, 1995 in Seattle

Since Phish announced its triumphant return, I've decided to randomly start posting past setlists here as a way to generate some good 'ol Phishy memories, and to keep up the excitement.

So, I'm going to start with one of the top five shows I ever saw. I wanted to add some of my memories from this stellar show -- the same day OJ was acquitted -- but I've been writing (working) all day and have to get off the computer. I'll try to post them in the morning when I have fresh fingers and flowing thoughts, but I usually it hard to return to a post:

Tuesday, Oct. 3, 1995
Seattle Center Arena, Seattle, WA
Opening Act: Baby Gramps

Set One: Maze, Guelah Papyrus, Foam, Fast Enough for You, I'm Blue I'm Lonesome, Free, The Man Who Stepped Into Yesterday > Avenu Malkenu > The Man Who Stepped Into Yesterday Reprise, Sample in a Jar, You Enjoy Myself

Notice there are no transitions between songs? That screwed us up that night ...

Oct 2 was a better show, imho

I agree, but my best friend dropped on mushrooms this night, so it stands out a little more. I do remember the HUGE cheer at the end of the Antelope jam on Oct. 2, though.
