Jam of the Day:

Mike’s > Horse > Silent” 10.29.96 II

This nugget of darkness finds Phish in Tallahassee, amidst their last set before Halloween ’96. Playing with Karl Perazzo, warming up for Remain In Light, the band sat into a thick “Houses In Motion” groove during “Mike’s” second jam.

  2. verno329 Says:

    @Chef I think we can make that happen. I was actually looking at that show tonight but decided to go with the Moby Dick show from Deer Creek instead. The 6/22 is pretty nice from what I remember.

    Whats Happening everybody…highway opened up today which means my 5 hour commute was down to 50 minutes! Amazing how a closure of 30 miles leads to a 250 mile detour! Love the mountains!

    Hope all is well over here! Have a good night blackboard.

  4. ChefBradford Says:

    verno- that was my (and I believe, Lycan’s) first show

    impressive collection

    understatement of the year (month? day?)

  5. JerZ Says:

    Robbear- I know that other people have offered, but I would be happy to help out in any way possible if you make it out here.

    I’m sure I’m preaching to the choir on this one, but I’m in the midst of my first listen to The Low End Theory, and it’s awesome…

    had a few thoughts on Miami BOTT today

    on my first few spins i noticed that the second part of the jam sounded much more ambient than i remember live

    the rhythm that was created in the first half seemed to keep driving the ambient second half while we were there

    the sbd def sounds great , i just realized today that the haunting rhythm and groove created seemed to stick around live even after they stripped the jam down and went slightly ambient

    Marshall reminded me of the mosquito lights and part of the experience may have been visual as well

    re: Weir on FBN

    “2012… speaking of the illuminati?”

    So I guess the Illuminati infiltrated the Mayan power structure, too… and then made calendars? Am I missing something (besides FBN guy being a major douchenozzle)?

    garret: some might even say ‘yo shorty black, you buggin out.”

    enjoy. you might find yourself not listening to anything else for several months.

  9. Stupendous Says:

    I remember I stopped dancing just to watch the lights and the stage in the middle of the ambiance… I knew they would take off that night, but I was hoping for a waves… Never saw the train coming

  10. JerZ Says:

    GarretC- that is one of my favorite albums of all time. If you have not checked it out, definitely get Midnight Marauders too. I Left My Wallet in El Sagundo is the absolute best

    Oh, and “What” is an all time great track on low end…

    “What;s Ralph Cramden if he aint yellin
    At Ed Norton
    What is Coke Snortin
    Whats a position if ther is no contortin”

  11. JerZ Says:

    1992 was the golden year of hip hop. 1992 was to hip hop what 1997 was for Phish. And I was fortunate to be there for both. Sometimes getting old aint to bad after all

  12. Corey Says:


    We threw around that interview the other day and all shared a laugh or two at, and in support of, that Moustache.

  13. halcyon Says:

    jerZ .. where in CO are you?

  14. gus Says:

    “I’m sure I’m preaching to the choir on this one, but I’m in the midst of my first listen to The Low End Theory, and it’s awesome…”

    yes!! this is one of my all-time favorite albums, i’m so glad you’re listening to it! how far are you now?

  15. Stupendous Says:

    Hip hop got pretty ill in 98 too….
    Timbaland, busta, wu tang, nas
    and tribe had great albums that dropped
    that year….. Lauren hills the misseducation
    of LH was stellar…most of those albums
    still sound fresh to me….
    Just sayin’

    @Chef Since early ’05 I have kept a vigilant eye over The Traders Den, was active on a few other trackers and was fortunate enough to earn some incredibly nice connections and gained access to some rare, exclusive and extremely choice stuff…and grabbed anything and everything I could get my hands on. From ’05-early ’08 there wasn’t a day where I wasn’t downloading videos. I didn’t want 1996 verno329 upset with me, ya know?

    I started grabbing all of the Phish I could find and then branched out to Dead, JGB, and all the others you see. It became a challenge to stun my friends with the most oddball stuff I could find. “You want to check out a pro-shot Burning Spear show I picked up? A Clapton show from “98 in Tokyo w/ Mark Knopfler & Elton John? Jimmy Page & the Black Crowes? A mandolin workshop with Grisman, Mike Marshall & Sam Bush from a small festival in ’05? How about Morris Day & the motherfuckin’ Time!?!?”

    The moment I started getting vids I knew what I was getting myself into. Very addictive personality when it comes to collecting things. When it gets to the point when you see a new, fairly non-descript, Phish show posted in audio and say to yourself “First time they played Sparkle, eh? Why not” as you push the download button you know you have problems. But its a better habit than others I guess.

    BB is amazing.

    Listened to the latest from The Heavy just now, and it’s OK, but not as promising as “How You Like Me Now” makes it out to be.

    Think I need some Miami 09 to cleanse the pallette

  18. JerZ Says:

    Halcyon- I am in Greeley

  19. JerZ Says:

    Stupendous- I agree. 98 was pretty nasty. I am pretty sure that Bobby Digital dropped his first solo album that year, and Liquid Swords was circa 98.

    92 had Tribe, DeLa, Gangstarr, Dre, early Snoop, Fugees the Score

  20. gus Says:

    i absolutely love the parliament samples in dre’s early stuff

  21. Stupendous a.k.a The Beasel Says:

    u cant win against snoop n dre

  22. cal Says:

    garret–Thanks, got my Firefox all pimped now!

    Oh, and Low End Theory–yeah, my favorite front-to-back hip hop album of all time. Only rap album I’ve listened to as much (I think) is Bone Thugs’ first EP, which is also untouchable in my book. Says a lot about when I grew up, I suppose…

  23. garretc Says:

    I guess I should have stuck around for the conversation! Didn’t realize so many people were still around! Haha

    Yeah, done listening to Low End Theory, definitely definitely dug it. Probably my favorite hip-hop album of all time, at this point. Admittedly I’m not a huge rap fan, which has prevented me from spending money on checking out even the “classic” albums… But I just raided my friends collection for some new stuff, so hopefully I can work my way into loving yet another genre of music!

  24. Stupendous a.k.a The Beasel Says:

    Its the thuggish ruggish booone!

  25. yesyes Says:
