Live Phish Vol. 1 was recorded live at the Broome County Veterans Memorial Arena in Binghamton, New York on December 14, 1995. The show occurred towards the end of the band's 1995 fall tour, which featured a tour-long chess game between Phish and its audience. The second disc begins with a fan making a chess move onstage on behalf of the audience.

The show contains a rare (for 1995) extended jam out of "Halley's Comet", as well as the final appearance to date of "Keyboard Army" (until Dick's 09/06/2015 "THANK YOU" Set, a 684 show gap), a collaborative piece that debuted earlier the same year and features all four band members on keyboards.

The release reached a peak position of #97 on the Billboard 200 album chart.

SET 2: The Curtain > Tweezer -> Timber (Jerry) -> Tweezer -> Keyboard Army, Halley's Comet -> NICU -> Slave to the Traffic Light

ENCORE: Bold As Love

Notes: The jam into Timber included a Slipknot! tease. Bold As Love was played for a fan up front with a sign requesting it. A humorous scene ensued when another fan got excited, as if Trey was referring to his Brother sign. Trey remarked that when fans bring signs, it has to be for a song the band wants to play.
