Ten Tunes For Friday

8.2.09 (G.Lucas)

With under a month left until Summer 2010, each Friday inches us ever closer to new Phish music. Until then, each week we can focus on the relics from the past with ten more tunes. Enjoy the music, and enjoy the weekend!


Auld Lang Syne > Disease Jam > Split” 12.31.93 III

Arguably the greatest splash into the new year that Phish has ever pulled off, debuting the cathartic “Disease” jam before anyone knew the song. “Down With Disease” would be unveiled in ’94’s first show in Burlington.



Reba” 4.9.94 II

A soaring version with a ferocious peak from Binghamton ’94.



Tweezer” 6.29.94 II

A heavy, imposing rendition that emerged deep in the second set at Walnut Creek ’94.



Antelope” 12.6.97 I

During Fall ’97, Phish looked through a lens of funk grooves, transposing their vision on any and every song. Here’s a dancy first set example from Auburn Hills.



Wolfman’s > Scents and Subtle Sounds” 7.7.03 II

In the first show of Summer ’03 in, Phish led off the second set with this one-two punch, debuting “Scents and Subtle Sounds” to the Phoenix audience.



Mike’s Song” 11.7.98 I

1998 was the last consistently great year for “Mike’s Songs,” and this dark-horse version that all-but opened UIC’s three-night stand, moves from militant rhythms into a blissful second jam to balance things out.



Yamar” 12.13.97 I

Kicking off the final show of Fall ’97 in Albany, Phish jumped onto the dance floor quickly with this funktastic take on “Yamar.”



YEM > Fast Enough For You” 4.29.94 II

This “YEM”oozes ’94 energy and creativity, veering from a vocal jam and melting into “Fast Enough For You.”



David Bowie” 4.30.94 II

A classic rendition from Orlando, with “The Lion Sleeps Tonight” intro.

  8. [Not Tom] Marshall Says:

    No doubt Kurt. No doubt. I just happened to spin Corrina by itself and was reminded of it. But yes, it started out that way as you point out.

  9. BingosBrother Says:

    That stage setup is what my dreams are made of. N.Y. Bono really should have been replaced by me.

  10. Kurt Says:

    anyone wanna start a nye debate? i love 30 but nothing flings sh* quite like 29 here. i know i know the songs were crazy good but i thought playing was better 29, thoughts?

  11. [Not Tom] Marshall Says:

    ^ short show, el dude. Must have been so hot they had to shut it down for fear the afterburners would explode.

  12. BTB Says:

    Not Tom – the SBD of Corrina 12/30/09 is ridiculous as well. So much soul.

    Bingo – You making it to the tour opener? Blossom in your plans?

  13. [Not Tom] Marshall Says:

    I’ll take 30. ADub may come out of lurker mode to explain why 29 is better. He’s a huge fan of that Tweezer.

  14. ThePigSong Says:

    After watching that I can’t wait for this summer.

  15. ThePigSong Says:

    ahhh, just remembered I don’t have plans to hit any of shows.

    ::runs away crying::

  16. Kurt Says:

    i second the dude, cant even remember how many times ive listened to that WITH, not to mention its been sandwiched Btween two of the coolest tunes in-town. yea-er

  17. El Duderino Says:

    @ Marshall

    If you were their you would know why day 3 was shorter. Not much left in the tank after day’s 1 and 2

  18. El Duderino Says:


    I just watch the LC on youtube. Was there any more than just that?
    Am I missing something!

  19. BingosBrother Says:

    I will be at the tour opener. Blossom is being negotiated. Corrina was absolutely beautiful.

  20. Mr.Palmer Says:

    Jeez Miner- There should be a warning label for 1st tune of the TTFF! Holy wake -up. Sounds great too.

  21. SillyWilly Says:

    Going in for the exam…

    If you all don’t hear from me by 3 or 4 tomorrow afternoon. Fear the worst.
    Tell my mom I love her.

    My sister will understand.

    Have a good day everyone!

  22. [Not Tom] Marshall Says:

    The lighting rig from 2.0 in the picture above next to Tweezer is massive. It looks alive, as if it is breathing. Probably from the same Hampton show that the spaceship shot is from (the white lights shot framed by the speaker stacks that Miner uses quite a bit).

  23. Chalkdustin Says:

    Good luck Silly!!!

  24. [Not Tom] Marshall Says:

    @ Silly – vomit on the page.

  25. BTB Says:

    They played KDF for the crowd after Loving Cup
