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.

    Nice Carl
    Is that…..Cannonball
    It’s a cross between california sensamia. The greath thing about it is you can play 36 holes and get stoned to the bejusus afterwords…..or something along the lines of that.

  5. Carl Says:

    Willowed- nice to see you up to your normal friday evening antics.

  10. Carl Says:

    Correct me if i’m wrong, but if we kill all the golfers they’re gonna lock us up and throw away the key.

  16. Mr.Palmer Says:

    The Disease>Piper, Caspian is all i’ve gotten through so far. Its great. On Coil now. Sound is pretty good. Best 4 consecutive nights of Phish. Well, maybe gotta give the edge to the Island tour, but its close.

  21. VoidBoy Says:

    Yes, Island tour was a good listen… Phil & friends was another fun run of shows for me though only half Phish… maybe I should think of it as “Phish & Friends… play the Dead”
