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!

  4. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    some ’99 is def needed. big cypress is number one on my list

  5. Mr.Palmer Says:

    12/6/97 should be at the top of the list, if anyone in Phishland is listening.

  6. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    97/07/02 i think is ahead of that palmer

    i really want 99/07/21 or at least just the my left toe

  7. BrandonKayda Says:

    Hey BB

    What’s up?

  8. b23 Says:

    I’d love to get 12/6/97. That Tweezer jam is unrelenting. Unrelenting.

    But some kind of 99 would be great, as well. Is the Camden show the only official 99 release?

  9. Mr.Palmer Says:

    @b23- i think Camden ’99 is the only one. Besides Cypress i’d like to see

    12.11.99 or

  10. Mr.Palmer Says:

    What’s new BK?

  11. gavinsdad Says:

    you don’t want the hampton dec 99 with the Jenny Dances palmer? 😛

  12. gavinsdad Says:

    nite peeps

  13. Mr.Palmer Says:

    I have no problem w/ Jennifer Dances. Doesn’t bother me at all. Makes me laugh.

  14. KWL Says:

    jenny’s a good cook in addition to her fine dance moves so it’s all good

  15. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    hence 99’s underratedness

  16. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    yaaaa, sick jam http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ROjtdjY4t04

  17. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    ps. i will have a jennifer dances sign at deer creek! ha

  18. BrandonKayda Says:

    Not too much has been going on lately other than the normal music stuff. Started reading Skinny Legs and All a few nights ago, really liking it so far. Saw Inception yesterday – great movie I thought.


  19. Mr. Completely Says:

    I love how almost all the comments on that video are people making fun of the guy who posted it

    nice backfire there, Mr. W.E. Coyote…

  20. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    haha, this song is amazing compared to TTE….

  21. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    hollywood is the worst

  22. Mr. Completely Says:

    the couple of YT videos I just clicked through were super weird

    most of the comments were thoughtful, reasoned, and even kind

    the asshole and idiot posts stood out

    it was like the whole world turned upside down


  23. Mr.Palmer Says:

    I gotta try and see Inception one of these days. Been busy here. Starting a new job, but i have to get a couple State licenses that i don’t have. Shitty insurance licenses, no less. One more day of class then 2 tests and i’m done. Gotta get some sleep, have a good night…


  24. Mr. Completely Says:

    we finally took the shorty to Toy Story 3


    Inception is the next date night…maybe this weekend

  25. ChefBradford Says:

    DF crapped on it, but I thought Inception was great, up to C Nolan’s par
