Ten Tunes For Friday

Asheville 6.9 (Lanser)

Friday has come back around, bringing ten more songs to kick off your weekend. This round, I featured musical couplets, delivering ten tracks in five selections. This week, I mixed a couple post-hiatus highlights into the mix,. Enjoy the pairings and have a great weekend!


Tweezer > Lifeboy” 6.23.94 II

This is the third consecutive version of “Lifeboy” that dripped out of “Tweezer” during June 1994. This “Tweezer” features prominent jamming on Cream’s “Sunshine of Your Love.” (Excuse the nasty tape flip at the end of “Tweezer.”)



Timber Ho!, Jam > Taste” 11.30.96 II

A rare time when a guest enhanced a show, Peter Apfelbaum, on tenor sax, added a whole new element to this sequence, pushing the vibe in the direction of Phish fusion.



Suzy Greenberg > Theme” 12.28.03 II

Miami '03

On the first night of Miami ’03, this unlikely combo formed a significant chunk of set two. Diving far from the structure of “Suzy,” the band entered a menacing passage in which Trey offered a stunning guitar confessional.



Twist > Simple” 11.29.03 II

One of few highlights from ’03’s Turkey Run that stands the test of time.



Makisupa > David Bowie” 10.29.95 II

A devestating “Bowie” from the night before Halloween ’95, in Louisville, Kentucky.

    Hey Folks! Long time no see. It’s been hella busy around here in the pre-Tour season. Hope everyone’s been doing well.

    Ummm, question for all you Deadheads –>

    Is there a volume for the Dead comparable to the Phish Companion or Pharmer’s Almanac: you know, a book that lists every set list for every show, along with nuggets of contextualizing information and mini-reviews? Inquiring minds wants to know . . . Thanks!!!!

  5. joe Says:

    ok. enjoy!!! (I dare you to make it to the end)


  6. Prince Nabby Says:

    OK, well I figured out the answer for myself anyhow. I guess that’s what they pay me the big bucks for 🙂

    Dammit, I’m such a stoner! I forgot the link in my last comment… Oh well… It wasn’t really all that cool in hindsight anyways…

    However! I just watched “The Last Dragon” on my Netflix instant play, and it made me realize I need to watch more kung fu movies! It also made me realize that preferably they shouldn’t have copious amounts of disco…

    @ nabby, deadbase has so much interesting, as well as trivial, information, that it will keep you busy for years.

  9. Prince Nabby Says:

    Thanks, TG! That was exactly the book I found my way to. Nice to know that all of those years getting a PhD at least qualified me to track down the occasional book. I could not *believe* how expensive used copies are though. I’m getting into the Dead in a huge way all of a sudden, so I might spring anyhow . . .

  10. Tzara's Ghost Says:

    The tapers compendium series is useful too, though it has it’s share of errors. The BB is a good resource too. Though the esteemed Mr. Completely is rather scarce these days, a lot of people here can help.

  11. Prince Nabby Says:

    Thanks again, TZ. I’m hitting the sack now, but I think I’ll be hitting y’all up for suggestions in the coming days. Night!
