    good morning,

    ? how come, sometimes, when i rip a livephish cd to my hard drive, the album info won’t come up?

  4. BrandonKayda Says:

    I don’t know if you can say it’s a full Undermind tease (RE: Miami Piper). They were jamming around the theme a bit, but never completely hit the lick

    That Piper is brilliant though

    I guess Trey forget how to play a segment of Moma Dance on 12/31/09

  6. Leo Weaver Says:

    Morning fellas (and ladies)…listening to bits and pieces from Miami and just listened to Access Me again. Any of you know if Mike or Mike/Leo have done it at one of their shows? Sounds like it should’ve been on one of Mike and Leo’s albums…

    To answer your question from last night, Still Life (Talking) is one of my favorite albums…some scorching shit on there! Saw Metheny in Sacramento AND Berkeley during that tour…wow, I was on Metheny tour!

  8. Mr. Palmer Says:

    Going through some old Cds i just stumbled across a copy of 12/29/98 set II. Still, to this day, my only complete 4 night run. I remember the 2001 being a true scorcher. Time to roll down memory lane i guess.

    Set 2: Free, Limb By Limb, Also Sprach Zarathustra[1] > Boogie On Reggae Woman, You Enjoy Myself

    Encore: The Divided Sky

    sweet..like i said, a staple…give earl klugh’s crazy for you a spin..
    i know it’s hard to get away from all the phish we listen to , but there’s a time and a place…

  10. Leo Weaver Says:

    @Mr. P…that’s still my only 4 nighter, what a run it was! I’ve been giving 12/28 and 12/31 some playtime recently, I’ll have to grab that one now. Was good to be back in MSG for a couple more this year!

  11. Mr. Palmer Says:

    I hear ya Leo. Was able to hit 2 at msg this year. Having 3 young ones at home makes it hard to do the back to back to back anymore. I’ll leave that to new school kids.

    Morning all.
    I saw your post at the end of yesterday’s post and this morning as well about the Oysterhead tease…
    I haven’t checked it out, but I’m wondering if it isn’t along the lines of me hearing Trey quote the run of ‘Mr. Completely’ in more than one jam in MIA.
    I don’t know if I consider these ‘teases’ per se, but more like a ‘quote.’
    I know this can sometimes lead to a battle over semantics, but teases for me tend to be a concrete effort by one or more of the band members having an idea formulate and playing a portion of another song whether it be just a line, a standard or even an entire musical phrase that is actually another song entirely.
    That’s a long-winded description for something that I think we all just know when we hear it. Typically, the crowd reacts because a tease is clear as day.

    The ‘Manteca tease jam’ is for me a great example of more of a quote. That isn’t Manteca that they’re playing in any true form, but more of a scale run that echoes Manteca’s musical structure.
    It’s more of a familiar groove that Trey locked into simply because Manteca has been played so much by this band, exists as a ‘standard’ in the musical world and is almost what Miner refers to as ‘crack-like’. Infectious groove, but not Manteca. Similar in musical quote, but not a true tease. That’s why it doesn’t jump out as Manteca, and didn’t receive a true boisterous audience reaction. It was just really good. A quote.

    There are other examples, as I mentioned, Trey quotes ‘Mr. Completely’s’ hook groove a few times if you listen closely simply because it’s a familiar place for his fingers to land. Oftentimes in the late nineties, I would hear quotes of Jibboo and Sand, and-more recently-we heard a lot of what I consider quotes when people refer to jams like the Hartford ‘Disease’ (I think) being ‘Reba-like’. This causes a lot of discussion and varying opinions (and sometimes snowball fights!) based on the level that the quotes have gone, if it’s an actual ‘tease’, etc.

    One more reason I love this band.
    They can do it all.

    Boy that got me started right out of the gate!

    Andrew-Thanks for letting me know that I’m not crazy! (Although some would tend to disagree.) Yeah, I found Puterbaugh’s book to be extremely accurate on every level from the existing knowledge that I had of the band, which leads me to believe (perhaps wrongfully so) that more often than not, his more recent information, behind the scenes stuff and interviews would probably be accurate to the same degree.
    Either way, good book, pick it up…..kick your buddy in the ass for drinking Haterade around you and just know that any book that Miner writes (when it comes to it) will be just as valid, if not more so. If that is actually being questioned by publishers as he stated!

  13. floyd Says:

    reba and access me are huge highlights for me from last week. really felt the groove there and i can’t stop listening to access me.

    also, kudos to the guy who put up these set break videos on you tube. hilarious

  14. neemor Says:

    “I heard the Manteca themed jam
    on tweezer but it was just a motif for
    the groove”

    I like how Stupendous put it.

  15. neemor Says:

    “Auld Lang Syne tease in Ghost”

    Great example of a tease.

  16. Mr.Miner Says:

    There is no Manteca jam. That is a classic Trey lick from ’98. Period.

  17. Mr.Miner Says:

    nor a Manteca tease.

  18. Mr.Miner Says:

    people stretch to label music….never understood

  19. Leo Weaver Says:

    I hear ya’ floyd…I’ve gone back to Access Me three times already. BoTT now…while I download the 28th…finally.

  20. Leo Weaver Says:

    btw @neemor…thanks for the Coffee and Cigs rec…I know the wife’s gonna want to do a movie at some point today, I’ll have to recommend it…at least it’s not one of her off-the-wall random picks and I’ll know what to expect…and maybe look like a swell hubby in the process 🙂

  21. floyd Says:

    night one had its perks. in a perfect world they would have played tumblin’ dice where they played alaska and set two wouldn’t have been hated on as much…still ‘s some great music imo

  22. Leo Weaver Says:

    Should’ve been “back to access me three times already…this morning”

  23. neemor Says:

    I know, I know, neemor…enough already, but….
    If ‘Demand’ were stretched at all, would it get more love?

    My third favorite song (not ‘Jennifer Dances’, as Mitch proposed weeks ago!).
    So sweet to hear it again, out of a brilliant ‘Sweot Away’>’Steep’, no less!

    But even this morning, Miner posts a great link to ‘Swept>Steep’ and……….
    Son of a gun!

    I demand love for Demand.
    I had suggested early in June, and had secretly envisioned for years, a sign that read “I demand Demand”, but always considered it too ‘pushy’.

  24. neemor Says:

    floyd, 12.28 was really good, another show I could listen to ‘cover to cover’. The entire run fills that bill.

    Leo…I watched again last night at 2am to see it from the beginning.
    I don’t know if it’s a ‘great’ movie, I tend to hold that for truly legendary films (Pulp Fiction, Fear and Loathing, Natural Born Killers, etc., etc.), but one to check out on a cold Carolina mornin’.

  25. PBS Says:

    The boy says to me today (he’s 3), let’s listen to See His Face! I put it on, and he says, this is excellent music Dad. Since he first heard it on the drive home the other day, he’s been asking me to play it.

    He’s certainly on to something, cuz I keep coming back to it. Just an amazing piece of music. Funny how much better it is than the stones version.

    Might be my fave piece of music from ’09. Just love it…and so does the boy! Have a good weekend pholks!
