Weekend Nuggets: Mike’s Songs


Photo: (T.Wetzel)

As Mike wraps up his eight-show mini tour this weekend, let’s turn our attention to the few recordings that have been posted. Along with the tour opener, these are the only shows that have surfaced on line for now. I haven’t gotten a chance to listen to these yet, but reports from the road have been glowing. If you haven’t had a chance to check out Mike’s band, grab these for your weekend enjoyment! If you do get to see a show and would like to write a reader review, send your piece to mrminer@phishthoughts.com.

  1. ChefBradford Says:

    Enjoy that Waves; I always do. I have a few minutes left in this jam (I was pretty sure I was close to your start-time)

  2. Marshall Says:

    Well, I can be certain that I didn’t just lose the stream, but Tweezer seemed to be in transition to something else, so I assumed it was truly over.

  3. ChefBradford Says:

    Probably was. I think it heads in to Mountains in the Mist

  4. Marshall Says:

    think I’ll get in bed and let this Waves lull me to sleep as it usually does on the DVD.

  5. ChefBradford Says:

    I’ve got the LP release, maybe it’s tracked differently? It seems to be winding down nicely.

  6. ChefBradford Says:

    Later, Marshall. Enjoyed this mini-listening chat, or whatever you want to call it

  7. gavinsdad Says:

    nite all.

  8. Marshall Says:

    Same here, Chef. Peace out.

    No, it did wind down nicely – that’s sort of what I meant with the “and, it’s over comment.” It wound down and then the track ended.


  9. Marshall Says:

    Night G’sDad. Night john boy.

  10. Marshall Says:

    Damn … I forgot that a spaceship takes off (or lands, it’s hard to tell) during Waves.

  11. Marshall Says:

    I’ll go with “takes off” because it “lands” during Moma Dance at Keyspan the following summer.

  12. cal Says:

    Well, g’night everybody, daylight savings gets a little easier tomorrow…

  13. Mr.Miner Says:

    those east coast dates are right, and yeah, pretty sure they are ending july 4 in atl

  14. Robear Says:

    miner, did you post all the dates earlier, or a partial list?

  15. Marshall Says:

    Miner – throwing Chalkdust from Keyspan night 2 out there for consideration as a JOTD or one of the TTFF.

  16. Marshall Says:

    The video to Christiana Ghost adds an entirely new dimension (found easily on youtube).

  17. Robear Says:

    marshall, I did the ’04 DC > Alpine run. Did you hit that? I remember the 2nd nite of DC being quite good. I haven’t listened to any of them.

  18. ChefBradford Says:

    ^re Christiana Ghost— yep

    And here’s to hoping they follow up the ATL tour closer with more dates in the South for the Fall….I’ve yet to see the Phish INDOORS!!!!!!!!!!!!

  19. brother Says:

    Listening to 4-5-98 Ya Mar…….really beautiful stuff. My favorite version ever.

  20. Mr.Miner Says:

  21. wall05 Says:
