    So, the big convo at Lossless Legs is that the Exile on Main St. re-master blows donkey balls. Someone did a sound wave analysis and it’s an mp3. hiss is horrible between songs, everything is up front reportedly. Sounds like a real bummer. Stay Away

    had concert and festival dreams all night. I’m ready!

  4. Jtran Says:

    Morning everyone. I’ve been doing some downloading recently, and my new show acquisitions are:


    I’ve been trying to get some shows from eras I don’t generally listen to as much (mainly anything besides 97-99), and I realize I’m still really lacking on 95 Phish. Any suggestions on shows to download that have good sources available (can’t stand to listen to bad AUD recordings more than once)?

    hey bb what’s up

    i’m curious, and now might not be the best time to ask since theres not many people here on a saturday morning, but how many of you know john gorka? he’s a fantastic singer/songwriter/guitar player and I saw him last night in a little church in marblehead, ma and it was truly just an amazing show. i’m not sure how well known he is, but I recommend
    hid music to you all

  8. KWL Says:


    all of december 95 (remember you can select which shows to DL… but IMO all of 12/95 is required listening!)

  9. El Duderino Says:

    10/21/95 is an LP release.
    I suggest you buy the download!!!

    So is 12/01/95 for that matter

  10. Jtran Says:

    Cool, thanks guys. If I had the HD space for all of 12/95 I’d do it. Since I don’t, recommend me three highlights? I’ve already got 12/31 and 12/1

  11. El Duderino Says:

    12/30 is another favorite of mine

  12. Jtran Says:

    @El Dude
    I’ve got vol. 1-20 of the LPs, except for disc 2 of vol. 5 somehow.

  13. El Duderino Says:

    @ Jtran

    I’m talkin’ about the LP Archival releases that can be found here:


  14. Mr.Miner Says:

    i have so many freakin’ DATs…anyone know the best way to convert them to digital files?

  15. KWL Says:

    12-7 and 12-14 are musts… 12-29 would be my 3rd rec i think

    if you want to DL only individual jams, some highlights are:
    12-2 tweezer
    12-5 gin>keyboards
    12-7 melt, mikes>weekapaug
    12-8 tweezer>kung>tweezer
    12-12 disease>lizards
    12-17 tweezer>reprise
    12-28 tweezer

    that is leaving a lot out too. best month of phish as far as i’m concerned!

  16. Mr.Miner Says:

    12-30 Hood…..there’s a lot more…as kwl said…..

  17. BingosBrother Says:

    @misterchristian : me too buddy. Phish show + roller coaster reprise = great night of sleep.

  18. Prince Nabby Says:

    @Miner — pots your query in the Technobabble section over at thetradersden.org

  19. Prince Nabby Says:

    pots = post. Haha. Report unstamped mail to your local potsman.

  20. El Duderino Says:

    @ Miner


    Send them to Jason Sobel!


  21. kenny powers Says:


    here’s a SBD of that 12/2/95 Tweezer (mp3)


  22. KWL Says:

    knew you’d chime in with that one miner! also 12-29 stash has always been one of my favorites…. even though page misses the ending.

    i think i need to kick start today with some december 95 tweezers…

  23. KWL Says:

    ok folks, it’s going to be a crazy one for this kid today.

    if i am posting on here after about 4pm eastern, do not listen to anything i say, because i will be drunk.

    that is all.

    have a great one!

  24. El Duderino Says:

    @ KP

    You in Bama???

  25. Mr.Miner Says:

    if anyone has any recs for DAT transfer that doesn’t include burning to CD > uploading to CPU, let me know….I’ve heard they can “go bad”, and mine are over 10 yrs old now…
