Taper’s Section: December ’95 Recommended Sources

12.8.95 Official Poster

As we continue to look back on highlights from the month of December, today we turn our focus toward some of the best audience recordings from December ’95. If you haven’t been following along, etree user ‘duanebase’ has been sharing AUDs from 12.95 each day on the 15th anniversary of the shows. Below, you will find links to the downloads and source information for the shows up to this point. I recommend downloading all of these sources as many are among the finest that circulate from this incredible period in the band’s career. Big thanks to duanebase for uploading these and to those responsible for taping and transferring the shows.

And of course, today’s must-hear jam comes to you in the form of the remarkable “Tweezer” > “Timber” > “Tweezer” from 12.14.95 (as featured on Livephish 1).
