New Years Run Together

12.31.02 (J.E.Remy)

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.

(Stay tuned for part III of the Miami ’03 retrospective after Christmas)

    “fixing with full sbd copy now”

    great news, thanks again!
    by the 13 minute mark they are raging in full stride.
    Fishman’s hi-hat pattern at that point,
    in contrast with the swinging ride….
    it floors me every time.

    between this Sand,
    and the 12/28/03 Suzy jam spectacular from the other day,
    I feel like a basking in warm rays of FLA heat.

  4. Robear Says:

    Then Cookies and Grey Goose it is!

  5. Mr.Miner Says:

  10. SillyWilly Says:


    youve given me so much already in the way of CF and TSU tunes

  11. Lycanthropist Says:


    fwiw in case anyone missed it

    I have posted the initial list of Chance Fisher Best of 2009 on the archive. I intend to trim it down (its 50+ jams right now) but I decided to go ahead and post the first draft for our fans for christmas..

    kind of a limited time only thing. Now most of these can be found in the full show downloads…

    But these are some of our favorite jams personally, and its a good way to kill some time.

    so check it out here:

  12. SillyWilly Says:

    awesome, Lycan!

    thank you very much

  13. Lycanthropist Says:

    would love any input on selectioins that should stay or go

  14. Lycanthropist Says:

    i for one cant wait to get back on my own PC and get my hands on Miner’s New Years Picks!

  15. Lycanthropist Says:

    i hope everyone is having an exceptional christmas


    we just got back from watching Avatar..

    great visuals, bit too long, and a loose plot.

    Id say see this in the theater with the 3D or dont see it at all

  16. SillyWilly Says:


    thanks for the heads up. i was thinking about seeing it in the next few days. looks like i better so im not tempted to rent it later.

    thats great that you remembered that i never saw it, just made it my avatar as a joke.

  17. Lycanthropist Says:

    @chef and @bearito

    you guys should both try to plan on being here for the CF 1.21.10 show. Its jud’s birthday and is pretty much guaranteed to be a good time!

  18. btb Says:

    Roses 1999 is so sick! Merry festivus people

  19. Lycanthropist Says:


    that Sand is one of my all time favorite Phish jams. I am sure Im not alone in this, but I had some very very intense transcendental moments listening to that on some head phones.

  20. SillyWilly Says:

    couldnt resist as theres a star wars marathon on:

    …”but I was going to Toshi station to pick up some power converters.”

  21. whole tour! Says:

    Merry Christmas!

    The Time is Near
    The mission’s clear
    It’s later than we think

  22. Alex Says:

    Perfect mix for post-Christmas traveling.

  23. jed Says:

    just listened to the full Sand SBD. So sweet.
    and yes, Lycanthropist,
    i too have had “very very intense transcendental moments”
    deep in this Sand.

    One thing that makes this version so kick-ass
    is the transition to the new key of Bb major.
    It starts to morph around 18:30,
    when Trey plays a single note (D) riff.
    Sand has been (is) in the key of A minor thus far
    and D is part of that tonal center’s scale , for sure, maybe a little “out”.
    But the magic hits when Mike (and Page)
    move up one half step to Bb.
    In the big harmonic picture,
    it relatively turns Trey’s D note into the major 3rd
    of a happy, bouncing Bb major chord
    Really smooth and seamless from a minor key (read: dark)
    to major (happy happy joy joy)

    It shows the power that a bassist has, to change one note
    and affect the overall musical picture in a big way.
    Cactus is a master of this sort of thing,
    Reba jams, also being a perfect example of these compositional shifts
    through bass note substitutions.
    check out the 4.9.94 Reba jam.

  24. SillyWilly Says:

    here’s an idea for a new phish cover:

    In Star Wars, the jazz ensemble tune they play in the bar at mos eisley.

    very phishy.

  25. Selector J Says:

    Reggae Christmas selections presently uploading to three separate folders. Added some new tracks to the mix, too.

    1 of 3 is finished. All should be done in about 30 min.
