A Live One is a live album by the American rock band Phish, released on June 27, 1995, by Elektra Records. The album was the band's first official live release.

Each track on the album was recorded at a different live show in the United States during Phish's 1994 summer and fall tours. Several of the songs have never appeared on studio albums and the track "Montana" is not really a song, but actually a two-minute excerpt from the longform improvisation that followed “Tweezer” during the band's show in Bozeman, Montana.[4] On A Live One, "Montana" serves as a prelude to the epic "You Enjoy Myself", one of the most well-known versions of that song.

Phish received its first RIAA award for the album. The RIAA certified the album gold on November 10, 1995, and platinum on October 9, 1997.[5]
