2.12.10 - Boston (Balaji Mani)

In order to enhance coverage of side project shows I am unable to attend, I have decided to try out a new section of Phish Thoughts centered around side projects performances – Side Project Reader Reviews. For the rest of this Trey tour, and Mike’s upcoming tour, I invite you, the readers of Phish Thoughts, to craft your own reviews of shows you attend. These reviews will be posted on a separate page of the site, exclusively reserved for your reviews. However, I am not interested in posting silly narratives about one person’s evening or experiences, rather, I’m looking for astute musical observations and analysis. Try to make these reviews between 500-1000 words, though I reserve the rights to edit down your pieces if necessary. (I will always edit for grammar and flow.) Also, please don’t be offended if your review is not posted. I do not necessarily intend to post every single submission. I will only post well-written reviews that focus primarily on the music. (Try to keep the first person out of things as much as possible, as that will help you stay on topic.) Anyhow, have at it! The only show I’ll be at is Kansas City, so I’ll be welcoming contributions for all other shows, including Mike’s tour. For now, I present to you the inaugural reader review by BogHog2001 about Trey’s show in Boston last night.

    any pulls from Boston sound decent
    think there are 2 up right now

    sounds like another good one last night

    band seems to be really tightening things up
    Philly sounded great

  2. EL Duderino Says:


    I’m grabing the AKG 4 mic mix, or at least I think it is a 4 mic mix.

    AKG 480b/CK63’s and AKG 480b/CK62’s it says.

    Without the Grace Design Lunitec V3 A/D high resolution converter, the pulls kinda suffer IMO.

  3. albert walker Says:

    still chasing the sound of night 1 pulls
    tapers need to step it up here
    get out something more recent that sounds great

    I really figured these smaller versions should be bring out some hot pulls

    those are the ones I was gonna check out also

  4. EL Duderino Says:

    This source here:

    This is a 16bit/48kHz file set. You cannot burn this to regular cdr’s. Has to be DVD-Audio.

    Here is the AKG 4 mic mix:

  5. EL Duderino Says:

    That Schoeps FOB 4 mic mix should have come out a little better IMO.

    He had all the right equipment but it fell short of that Charlottesville AKG source.

  6. albert walker Says:

    seems those schoeps can be tricky or something

    they tend to be great or that boomy muddy sound like in that 4 mic mix

    seems FOB positioning can be tricky or something

    I don’t know but I’ve heard other schopes sources that sound similar pretty frequently

  7. stitchstash Says:

    Ct is one of the few states that I’ve never been to. Hopefully this summer will change that.

    @ chef. I like roomates just fine but honestly I loved living alone better. I just really enjoyed having my own space. Every mess is your own. After you have a family, personal space is hard to come by. Enjoy it while you can. Get a studio.

  8. EL Duderino Says:

    I’m not quite sure but I think Mark had said something to the effect that that’s the intention of the taper. To get this big booming sound to replicate supposedly the amphitheater.

    I prefer clarity where all the instruments are evenly represented.

    CMC6/ and what ever caps either the MK4’s, MK4V’s and the 41’s seem to be better, but who knows. Location is another aspect.

  9. albert walker Says:

    anybody interested

    I’ll be adding to my mediafire account this morning
    3 of my fav reggae records of all time
    figure everyone has heard these but if not please do

    Culture- two sevens clash
    Max Romeo- War Inna Babylon
    Upsetters- Return of the Super Ape (dub tracks of previous album)

    adding these to the Curtis Mayfield, Pretty Things, and Dillinger that is already up there from the other night

  10. EL Duderino Says:

    find that

    Clint Eastwood Rides Again

  11. albert walker Says:

    I wish Dude

    OG upetters that old are worth big cash

    Eastwood is def some sick shit

    Return of the Super Ape is $$ though

  12. EL Duderino Says:

    My favorite SL album! 8)

  13. stitchstash Says:

    @ Jay, I will be going to see a Further show this Wednesday. I’ve never seen Dark Star, so I’m not familiar with fake Jerry. This random guy at my old job was raving about this tour. I’m interested one way or another to see what all the fuss is about.

    Thanks Albert Walker. I’m going to start downloading some Curtis right now.

  14. Gavinsdad Says:

    Seconding AW on his uploads. Those 3 albums are core musts. Those of you who don’t know “two sevens” will now be stuck on it for a week. Gritty but beautiful harmonies. And he leaked it way back but you now have a clue into AWs handle.

    Albert – I’d passed this around to coworkers a few weeks back but I love the song “were a winner” by Curtis. I did a quick search for it online and it came up with a stream on of a version from Curtis Live! which I’d never seen before. The version is sick. Do you have that album??

  15. EL Duderino Says:

    This AKG pull from the 9:30 Club – Washington, DC. show sounds pretty damn good.

    A little chatty maybe but very clear.

  16. albert walker Says:

    yeah that live record is the fire
    great representation of how great a guitar player Curtis was
    Jimi was a huge fan of his voicings and arrangements

    the original Were a Winner was on the Impressions record of the same title

    One of my favorite artists of all time
    true genius

    figured cats should hear some Cutlure
    that way they can hear Albert Walker in action on those tracks
    he is the back up vocalist

    2 sevens was a huge hit in the punk community in the late 70’s
    I even have a pressing on a british punk label from 78

  17. albert walker Says:

    sounds good dude

    I’m about half through on the downloads of those AKG’s

  18. jdub Says:

    I was hanging out in weekend download thread all morning, felt like a freaking ghost town, was wondering what the deal was.

    Willowed- I had a definite out of body experience during simple twist up, I couldn’t recall the name until you posted it. The peak was for real. Not to mention my wife looks to me at the start of the jam and asks is this a simple tease? Not a bad ear for a first timer. Simple is our sons favorite song and he calls it daddies song while we dance to it, I sat in my seat after she called that to catch my breath, started to meditate to the trance groove going down and got to the point where I was definitely looking down on the whole thing. And they kept it going through multiple peaks. Great stuff.

  19. Gavinsdad Says:

    AW – I gotta go hang with the pickneys (heh) but we can talk about Don Letts and reggae musics presence in England another day.

  20. jay Says:

    wont reget it stitch. I have been hearing from many old deadhead friends (jaded one at that, especially after “The Dead” fiasco) that are a buzz with this incarnation of players. Everyone saying it’s a close to a genuine Dead show you are ever going to get. Everyone on the stage is jazzed and they have only been together like 5 months (20 shows?). Will only get better.

  21. jdub Says:

    Simple phrasing I guess is what it is. I hadn’t heard the song before last night or since, so I’m not positive what the deal is with the tune other than we were elevated by the music and moment.

  22. jdub Says:

    I had dead center seats in lower 200s, great sound and a perfect spot for some pics. Went to turn on the digital camera only to have the battery dead. A bit bummed by that as Kuroda had some pretty nice patterns going.

  23. Type III Jamming Personality Disorder Says:

    morning, all

    fun show last night to be sure. The jam out of Love is Freedom suprised the hell out of me. Definite tweezer feel to it and the stop/restart was dead on. very chatty trey last night with a couple of cool highlights (natalie’s great grandmother being in the audience and the Dude of Life there to hear his new songs for the first time). Another stellar Push on til the Day highlighted the 1st for me and the aforementioned Love is Freedom, Jibboo, Simple Twist Up Dave, along with the new horn arrangement in First Tube highlighted the 2nd.

    hung in the 200s first set and then sumodie and neemor stubbed me down to their spot about 8 rows from the stage on Ray’s side. kuroda had a lot more room to work with here than in the small HOB so the lights saw a great improvement over the prior night.

    glad I made the call to hit last night’s show both for the music and the company. another successful meet up. thanks for hosting, CT peeps!

  24. HarryHood Says:

    Lol Type III,

    Nice to see that you made it to last night’s show! My girl had a great time at the HOB show, but I wasn’t going to convince her to do Saturday night as well. Really nice to meet up with you guys. I wish I had gotten to hang more at the show, but our seats up top were really good and they weren’t assigned. We were gonna trek down at one point and see where you guys were at, but we were afraid to leave our spot on the rail.

  25. jdub Says:

    Great idea on the review page Miner, can’t wait to read what people have to say
