Miner’s Picks: Summer 2010 – Leg I

6.27.2010 - Merriweather (Graham Lucas)

After several weeks of listening and analysis in the Phisht Thoughts sound labs, the time has come to unveil the latest installment of “Miner’s Picks” for the first leg of summer tour. Because first sets and second sets contained such divergent vibes over the month, I’ve split the picks into a highlight-reel setlist, containing Set I, Set II, and an Encore. Though it was hard at times, I limited myself to one version of each song, so there are no repeats throughout this seven-plus hour compilation. With only a week and a half to go before The Greek kicks off Leg Two, here’s an audio retrospective of Phish’s first month of 2010. Enjoy the selections!

    Morning BB.

    I have a pretty awesome dilemma: Steve Winwood and Santana are in town, and I love to go to that show, but my friend invited me to his lake house and listen to Phish and bane for a couple of days. Anyone seen Santana lately? Is he putting on a good show?

  5. lastwaltzer Says:


    do anything worth telling us about?

  6. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    new arcade fire is pretty sweet. i was about to wonder if i should go see them when they’re here in august, then realized i’ll be at alpine that day! woo

  7. jdub Says:

    Congrats @HH since I haven’t seen you around here since the big day. I hope you and the SLF are getting enough sleep!

    I feel the same way @Willowed, we are very blessed to have these guys back in action, having fun, and playing great music! I won’t be taking it for granted any time soon.

    I’m on the prowl for JB1, not picky about seats, just want in for face. joshuawinkley at mac dot com if you have an extra.

  8. lastwaltzer Says:


    I’d go with the lake house.

  9. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    @jeffiem, i just saw that tour a few weeks ago. go! trust me

  10. lastwaltzer Says:


    did the arcade fire thing leak or is it out?

  11. Jtran Says:

    Great to wake up and see a new Miner’s Picks!

    Been spinning Miner’s “A Trip Through the Late 90s” DJ mix last night and this morning..really nice change of pace.

    I guess with this talk of 94 it’s time for me to dive in as well. My 94 knowledge is really lacking.

  12. willowed Says:

    OK. Off to do some work.

    Enjoy the day BB’rs

  13. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    @LW, leaked, someone posted a mediafire of it i think on friday here but i just donwloaded it higher quality off of demonoid

  14. kenny powers Says:

    llfa @ T3

    you know what’s ironic, those are very close to the authentic margarita recipe….so i’ve been told. there’s only supposed to be 3 ingredients:

    -premium tequila, the silver/blanco/plata variety
    -freshly squeezed lime juice

    i made those for my family last week, they were delish. that artifical mix crap they use even in some nicer restaurants is, i think, meant to overpower the taste of tequila since many folks don’t actually like the flavor of tequila.

  15. halcyon Says:

    Morning Everyone * Hoping this Monday gets going, can’t seem to wake up yet.

    LW, I posted a link a few days ago of the new arcade fire. I do not remember what day it was. I will try and post it later this evening when I get home from work.

  16. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    yeah it was halycon that posted it, thanks dude. i should be able to find the link again

  17. lastwaltzer Says:

  23. ColonelJoy Says:

  24. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

  25. Type III Jamming Personality Disorder Says:

    caught the Panic show Saturday night in Boston (which was a fun time) and they took a little dig at the KoL pigeon incident by dedicating the Pigeons opener to Kings of Leon. they surprised me with two strong covers I didn’t know they played (Mr. Soul and Lawyers, Guns, and Money) along with some very tasty Herring licks throughout the night. Venue couldn’t have been more than 2/3 full (5,000 capacity right on the water).
