Ten Tunes For Friday

With two months left until Summer Tour, let’s bust out ten jams for a springtime Friday! These selections span the mid to late-’90s, with some real gems in the playlist. Enjoy the music folks, and have a great weekend.


Stash” 3.30.93 I

One of the first profoundly expansive versions of “Stash” helped lay the foundation for the explosive year of 1993.



Funky Bitch” 11.30.97 I

The funkiest bitch in history.



Birds > If I Only Had a Brain > Caspian” 7.8.99 II

A gorgeous piece of improv from Virgina Beach; the band seamlessly slipped right into a Phishy take on The Scarecrow’s “If I Only Had a Brain.”



The Gorge

Split Open and Melt” 8.2.97 I

This fusing of “Split’s” menacing nature and the emerging, slowed-down textures of Summer ’97 put a spectacular cap on Phish’s first set ever played at The Gorge.



Tweezer > Lifeboy” 6.10.94 II

The first-ever Red Rocks “Tweezer”- a seriously dynamic and intense version strewn with Mind Left Body jam overtones.



Mike’s > Life On Mars? > Weekapaug” 11.15.95 II

"Mike's Song"

This multi-dimensional “Mike’s” from Tampa, Florida in Fall ’95, reminds us of the time when “Mike’s Grooves” were psychedelic events in the Phish universe, sparking fires in arenas across the land. And this “Weekapaug” ain’t too shabby either!

    Everyone knows you need a little meat when going Greek.

    I met Gordo at Bonaroo #2 (I think) he was watching STS9- and later came out and played with them. Nice fella- he was lamenting on the perfection of the giant pretzel he was eating. Looked pretty delicious. Insisted that they were better without mustard. I agreed.

  8. jdub Says:

    I like Let it Bleed, and I like when Trey uses the ” can’t you hear me knockin” riff. Stash of the day one more time fir some 93 shred for the head.

    That is all.

    And happy happy hour

    Great to hear! Which ones were they (I have a few out there?). I am going to try to hook up a mediafire account this weekend and load a bunch of stuff to share with people. Also working on a new funk/soul/afrobeat/dub kinda thing mix which I will post when done, for fun. I’m no dj, but I am the selector.
