New Year's Eve 1995 - Live at Madison Square Garden is a live concert album by American rock band Phish that was released in 2005. The album comprises the band's December 31, 1995 show at Madison Square Garden, named by Rolling Stone as one of the "Greatest Concerts of the '90s".[3]

Fans consider it one of Phish's best shows[4] and the band considers it one of their top five concerts.[citation needed] Following this 1995 show, Phish established a tradition of performing multi-night New Year's shows at Madison Square Garden.[5] The concert includes versions of "Mike's Song", "Drowned" by The Who, and songs from Phish's mythic Gamehendge cycle.

The album was released on December 20, 2005, to celebrate the show's tenth anniversary and received the Archival Album of the Year award at the 6th Annual Jammy Awards in 2006. The release marked the first time that the song "The Sloth" had been issued on a commercially released Phish recording.

In addition to a CD, the album was released in FLAC and MP3 formats at LivePhish.com. Selected songs were also available in MPEG-4 video. On March 5, Phish announced that this would be released for Record Store Day 2015 as the band's first live vinyl box set.[6]
