Weekend Nuggets: Pacific NW ’96

Since Phish has shied away from the Pacific Northwest this time around, here are a couple shows from ’96, when Phish was a nationally touring outfit. These shows were part of an extensive west coast run that concluded Fall ’96. (This Portland show may have been posted once, but now it will be in the permanent archives as well.)

  3. Stupendous Says:

    I believe theres a good compilation with the best to start with
    i forget the name… I know it says -the singles…or something like that

  4. Stupendous Says:

    Expensive Shit is my Fav Fela Album…

  5. gratefulcub Says:

    I should have seen that coming. How about, which Fela Kuti albums should one start with, espeicially if I like something in the line of what Corey said, “It’s so danceable!”

    Listening to Expensive Shit now. I’m going to miss lala.

  6. Robear Says:

    cub, did you grab the afro-beat that AW posted? Unreal stuff.

    check his mediafire/albertwalker page

  7. Robear Says:

    Hawks got lucky, four games in a row. Could easily be 2-2 or 3-1 Sharks.

    Everybody’s at the grindstone this monday morning, eh?

  9. Stupendous Says:

  10. Stupendous Says:

    im still holding it down strong

  11. Frankie Says:

    Hey BB! We got chased out of the woods at the start of our treeplanting season due to forest fire hazard… So hot for this time of season…

    Thanks to Mr. Miner Summer 98 Cowfunk Picks for a great soundtrack!

    June is around the corner… 🙂

  12. Frankie Says:

    Happy birthday Bob Dylan!

  13. gratefulcub Says:

    I didn’t download anything from AW, but I did scour the intertrons and download:

    Analog Africa Vol 5: Legends of Benin
    Orchestra Poly-Rythmo:
    Echos Hypnotiques, The King of Benin Urban Grooves, and The Vodoun Effect

    The OPR stuff is tremendous, and it is helping with my Phish Fasting. I haven’t got to the Legends of Benin mixed tape yet, but I fully expect it to be just as much fun.

  14. Robear Says:

    cub, where did you find the OPR stuff!!! I have the Echoes Hyp from AW. Need the others!

  15. lastwaltzer Says:

    @frankie,

    too funny, I used to be obsessive about dylan. Probably hadn’t listened to him in over a year. Yesterday I threw on Blonde on Blonde. Weird

  20. Stupendous Says:

    thx 4 those links!

  21. Robear Says:

    thx. aw. i missed a couple of those links last week. been listening almost continuously to what i did grab.

    no phish fast here, but plenty of new stuff to explore.

    and i understand what you’re saying. i’ll start looking to buy some of that stuff. great artists to support, no doubt!

  22. boucin fan Says:

    Pulled out a Cuban funk comp from the vault I dig – Si, Para Usted – The Funky Beats of Revolutionary Cuba

    Some pretty classic 70’s tracks from Cuba’s top shelf government sponsored music programs

    Funky ass shit

  23. Frankie Says:

    @lastwaltzer
    I think I’ll put on Blonde on Blonde on the turntable as well… great call!

  24. Robear Says:

    butter, did score van. sorry, didn’t get to stop by. ended up going way south bay, then racing home.

    ’05 sienna, bought from original owner, older woman. every option. overkill. we can get garminized this summer, it has GPS. also a back up camera, so if any wooks pass out behind the rig, they won’t get smooshed.
