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!

  1. Mr. Completely Says:

    jean grae, huh

    I kind of forgot about her, damn

    nice slowed down sample there

    nice link

  2. lastwaltzer Says:

    I’ll be honest, never herd of her before and am now listening to some of her other tunes. Says some heavy stuff.

  3. Mr. Completely Says:

    o rly? yeah Jean Grae is kind of a badass. great topics and pretty heavy flow. she really likes to start beefs about not getting respect, talks a lot of real foulmouthed shit, you know…

    that beat is doper than most of her prior tracks I’ve heard, not just cause it’s a Dead sample, that’s just a sharp beat with nice production…

    she is definitely worth checking out, next time I am in a rap phase I will dig back into her catalog

  4. Mr. Completely Says:

    actually hm maybe that’s because I’m thinking of the leaked version of her album Jeanius which wasn’t finished…can’t judge production on an unfinished album

    definitely intense, I mean who else raps about what it’s actually like to have an abortion? not fucking around, that Jean Grae

  5. Mr. Completely Says:

    ….hm $25 on amazon for that album, which is her first….a little steep

  6. gavinsdad Says:

    word life C. jean grae…totally overlooked by those that overlooked her.

    been wasting hella time on the raps here:


    and this cat outta Oakland seems to have it tied up right now production-wise


  7. gavinsdad Says:

    (but nobody’s gonna contest Heather B’s “all glocks down” IMO):


  8. voopa Says:

    greek greek greek greek greek greek greek greek greek greek greek greek greek greek greek greek greek greek greek greek greek greek greek greek greek greek greek greek greek greek greek greek greek

  9. gavinsdad Says:

    and one last one:

    Marco Polo on the beat, Masta Ace on the verse..”nostalgia”…one of my go to headnodders at all times:


  10. joe Says:

    and now I know what Heather B’s samples on that song are. pretty cool site

  11. joe Says:

    a good test case about how deep the sample database was and it passed with flying colors.

  12. joe Says:

    just got my renewal email from directv about the nfl package. only 6 payments of $45. I’m not even home most Sundays (work), don’t do fantasy football and very rarely bet on games. I also don’t have extra money to spend but yet somehow I don’t want to cancel it. why?

  13. joe Says:

    ok. cancellation made. I’m going to try spend that money making my way to jones beach instead.

  14. lastwaltzer Says:

    “I’m going to try spend that money making my way to jones beach instead.”

    OH YEAH!

  15. KWL Says:

    do it joe. i just pulled the trigger over the weekend by booking a cross country flight.

  16. Mr.Palmer Says:

    Gonna be a lot of BBers at Jones Beach. Strong Island style…

  17. KWL Says:

    i hear that mr p. looking for a night 1 extra if you hear anything (jdub is also)

  18. joe Says:

    Actually be one time I’m glad that Tuesday and Wednesday are my usual nights off.

  19. joe Says:

    also wonder if it’s “sold out” in the I can buy tickets in the lot pretty easily and cheaply sense. might be a little tougher than some of the leg 1 tickets

  20. b23 Says:

    I guess we’re not getting a LivePhish Archive release before the next set of shows this summer. Shame. I was hoping.

    Anyone heard anything, anything at all, about what might be in the LP pipeline for the future?

  21. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    @b23, a box set of every phish festival

  22. b23 Says:

    Wouldn’t complain about that, that’s for sure, Dancing Fool. Don’t need Clifford Ball anymore, though…

  23. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    just dreaming b23

  24. b23 Says:

    Someone’s got to dream it…

  25. Mr.Palmer Says:

    Something from fall ’97 or something from ’99 i would hope.
