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!

    I heart gold bond, trey loops and foot bells

    OK boys I am a little drunk.
    Happy Hour= 9…. #9 bottles and capped it with a Grey Goose Orange and Seven with a touch of OJ. I am going to try to have relations with my wife now.
    Wish me luck!
    Even though I wanted to find out how much it was to put a pet to sleep because I wanted my wife to be put to sleep.
    Sssshhhhh………………..It’s our secret.

    Chaffing (spelling?) on tour….not good

  3. Willowed Says:

    Has anyone ever swiped their grundle area then smelled it?

    With that I am going to pour myself a glass of Merlot.

    God help me!

    This is a serious question people! Tride Jerry? Terrapin>Tweeprise

  5. Luther Justice Says:

    I like my Gold Bond chilled

  6. Mr. Completely Says:

    @pageside, I think they have taken their Jerry nod and moved on. I don’t expect anything else, especially not on an homage date.

    If Phish ever does do another dead song, I bet it’s way more random than that, and dropped when you least expect it.

  7. Mr. Completely Says:

    they could give homage to those ’87 Dead shows by playing a couple of their weakest shows of the tour… 😮

  8. pagesidehighschool Says:

    I pity the fool who don’t know bout gold bond

  9. Kenny Powers Says:

  11. pagesidehighschool Says:

    I know I know, I’ve been listening to the dead station on xm for two weeks straight, really saturating

  12. pagesidehighschool Says:

    I think if anything they might give a nod to the bluegrass fest with maybe a guest

  13. Kenny Powers Says:

    Foul Domain

    just checking in – not a gullible thing, it really works.

  14. Mr.Palmer Says:

    Willowed makes me laugh. 🙂

    I agree w/ Mr. C . The Terrapin was a one and done.

  15. DocGanz Says:

    Agreed on the Mos Dub download. Also dl’d Jaydiohead- great stuff!

  16. bhizzle Says:

    Terrapin may have been a one and done, but they played alot of dead in their day and if they’re in the mind set of playing whatever makes them happy, one never knows. I agree that playing on any day that implies something dead-ish would be the obvious and we all know how phish deals with the obvious.

  17. Willowed Says:

    You want to know what’s funny. Mrs. Wilowed is sitting right next to me!
    She just told me to type X- Mrs. Willowed

  18. Willowed Says:

    I am moving over and Mrs. Willowed is getting on. I need you guys to chat with her because she thinks our little crew is insane/obsessed.
    So the next few posts wil be from Mrs. Willowed. She’s a little uptight but ashe has a glass of wine in her hand.
    Please loosen her up.
    Mrs Willowed will be on in 3…..2……..1

  19. Mr.Palmer Says:

    ^^ does that mean your in for BTB fest?

  20. Mr.Palmer Says:

    poor thing

  21. kayatosh Says:

    passing to your wife? wow, uncharted territory

  22. Willowed Says:

    So you must be all the guys feeding my husband’s obsession

  23. halcyon Says:

    Does your husband look anything like his avatar Mrs. Willowed? 😎

  24. Robear Says:

    i received an email saying my CMAC ticket had been printed and would be mailed shortly.

    hi mrs. willowed

    this little crew has found an outlet to talk music, literature, philosophy, travel, and other zany life topics. mr. willowed comes across as family first. quite witty taboot.

    plus, phish is pretty good.

    what kind of wine?

  25. pagesidehighschool Says:

    My lady calls this phish porn, but it’s healthier than real porn, right?
