Happy Holidays to all! As we approach Phish’s first New Year’s Run in six years, I have compiled some choice selections from New Year’s Runs past to get everyone in the holiday spirit. Totaling over five hours of music, these tunes should take you through Christmas and on down to Miami! Best wishes for a happy and safe holiday.

  2. leemor Says:

    Sigh…all alone….

    Well, it’s out there.

  3. BrandonKayda Says:


    Yes, Beatles

    Somehow I never got to picking that one up until now. Really good

  4. Leo Weaver Says:

    Happy Merry Neemor!

    i wish i could listen to revolver for the first time again

  6. c0wfunk Says:

    revolver is possibly my all time favorite album.

    Tomorrow never knows set a bar that still has not been topped in pop music imo.

    here there and everywhere was my first dance at our wedding song..

    the she said, good day sunshine, and your bird can sing, for no one, doc robert, I want to tell you, got to get you into my life is a fantastic run of tunes.

    Much experimentation w/ backwards tape loops on this one. Marks the bridge between “early beatles” and “late beatles” as they were diving into their consciousnesses and seeing what they found. Great album and amazingly ahead of its time for 1966.

  7. Leo Weaver Says:

    RIP Vic Chesnutt

    @fool…lemme know if you figure that one out, would be nice

  8. chefbradford Says:

    Brandon- Check out ‘Tomorrow Never Knows’. Prolly one of the earliest truly psychedelic songs on album. Backwards seagull cries, lyrics lifted from the Egyptian Book of the Dead, I think, crazy, great stuff

    Enjoy. I hear new stuff in the Beatles every time I listen.

    Speaking of which, I heard a different mix/version/something of “Dear Prudence” recently. It was slowed down, almost syrupy and psychedelic, guitars were MUCH more prominent in the mix, heard some sweetness I’d missed before. It was played on a college station, and they said nothing about it. But it definitely was NOT the original album version

    Ideas, anyone?

  9. Leo Weaver Says:

    I remember my big sister (huge beatles fan) playing Revolver when I was a kid…my thought after hearing really only their early stuff was “this isn’t the beatles”…I loved it

  10. chefbradford Says:

    And just to continue my verbal incontinence, here’s a bit of real-life non-Phish Phishiness (with me so far?) I was cleaning up after dinner at my parents’ house today, was about to put a plate in the dishwasher, but I realized it was China, probably antique. I flip it over, sure enough, there’s a seal. There was a design, but what caught my attention was the word under the design: Prussia

    So, my Mom has either a plate from Gamehenge, or from the Prussian Empire that was torn apart about a century ago

    Pretty cool, either way, but I’m hoping it’s from Gamehenge 🙂

  11. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    figure what out? lol

    1966 Beatles Revolver- Capitol original mono pressing

    the holy grail of Beatles records and not being a huge all around Beatles fan to me their most ground breaking and interesting work
    really nice album

    most collectible Beatles record- The Butcher Cover

    original alternative Yesterday and Today album cover that featured the Beatles with bloody decapitated baby dolls

    new covers were glued over them before issue
    you have to have them professionally pealed with steam and shit
    nicer the peal the more they are worth
    have a couple at Amoeba in San Fran
    have only seen one cat that had a personal copy in 15 years of record collecting

    if you’ve never seen it check it out
    whacked out shit

  13. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    there’s 2 amoebas in san fran

  14. albert walker Says:

    the one down on the Haight

  15. c0wfunk Says:

    hilarious thing just popped up on my facebook feed after the revolver banter here .. the beatles 1000 years later..

  16. c0wfunk Says:

    pretty much all of the beatles albums are best heard in mono – the engineers at the time focused mostly on their mono mixes and paid little attention to the stereo versions, as most people at home were listening in mono.

  17. chefbradford Says:

    Clever stuff, cOwfunk, very funny

  18. BrandonKayda Says:

    The whole album is fantastic. Tomorrow Never Knows is nuts

    Doctor Robert = LSD dealer? I’ll say yes.

    “When you’re down he’ll pick you up Doctor Robert; take a drink from his magic cup Doctor Robert”

    “People will pay to see themselves with Doctor Robert” (something like that)

    I’ve seen that cover AW, freaky as hell. Mutilated “limbs” all around them, strange strange strange.


    You are killing me man, I just downloaded 5 97′ shows based on those recommendations. Can’t wait to dig into them. the 11-23-97 Gin is just pure evil. Can’t play that one too much. Same with the Fukoka Twist->jam->Walk Away->jam->2001->Squirminjg Coil. Fukoka broke my brains first time I heard that. I remember where I was too, strange.

  19. chefbradford Says:

    “Layla In The Sky For The Benefit Of SHAFT”


  20. c0wfunk Says:

    doc robert is certainly about a well known superstar doctor who could prescribe whatever his patients wanted..

  21. c0wfunk Says:

    lmao at the scotty pippen thing so friggin funny

  22. chefbradford Says:

    Hopkins S. Sanders, Poet Laureate, Cyborg

  23. chefbradford Says:

    Thanks, cow, that vid was terrific

    Brandon- a couple of friends who don’t like Phish love that Fukuoka Twist (as do I). It’s not for everyone (J. Jarnow hated that show), but that whole set was magic, and fire. Super-groovetastic 2001 (first time it closed a 2nd set)

  24. c0wfunk Says:

    love the reconstruction at 2:30 w/ the star wars noises and ending w/ the cheers theme. Hilarious.

  25. Lycanthropist Says:

    wow just got back on after some christmas dinner and the recs exploded!

    thanks @cow and @leo for more than enough to keep me busy for a long long time.


    Revolver should have been in your catalog before, but at least its their now. I kinda envy you getting to hear it with virgin ears, on the remastered copy im sure no less.

    thanks again guys soo much,
