Ten Tunes For Friday

6.27.10 (G.Lucas)

Today, in a one-time appearance between tours, Ten Tunes For Friday focuses on past highlights from all the Leg II venues. Spanning eras and playing styles, the history of these venues dip into a wide spectrum of Phish history. And here’s a small taste.

***

Reba” 8.9.97 I

This dreamy, daytime “Reba” contributed to a big first set at Alpine ’97.

Stash” 8.28.93 I

Pollock '93

This first-set highlight from The Greek showcased Phish’s torrid jamming of Summer ’93, defined by near-subconscious communication.

Run Like An Antelope” 8.12.96 I

Deer Creek and “Antelope” have become two peas in a pod over Phish’s career, with more than a few standout versions played in the cornfields. The band threw down this dizzying jam in the first set of the first show in 1996, setting the tone for a memorable weekend.

Fee > David Bowie” 10.28.91 I

1990

This combination closed the first set at Elk Ballroom, Phish’s last visit to Telluride. And yes, Phish could play then too.

Harry Hood” 8.10.97 I

A uniquely gorgeous “Harry Hood,” this version carried a somber tone as Phish played the usually-blissful jam in a minor key to close the first set at Deer Creek.

Harpua” 10.28.91 II

A classic version of “Harpua” with comical narration from another era of Phish, nineteen years ago. This selection goes out to zzyzx!

Tweezer > Gumbo” 6.28.95 II

Strap on your seat belt for a wild ride through a quintessential  piece of Summer ’95 improv. “Tweezer” passes through countless themes, including ‘Dave’s Energy Guide” and a jam of The Breeder’s “Cannonball,” on the way to a half-hour epic at Jones Beach.

  2. Robear Says:

  3. Robear Says:

    and yeah, the whino has his own ride. ash and i will stop by wednesday night for a pit stop. have the spare room ready, mints on the pillows and such.

  4. angryjoggerz Says:

    Ugh, is there anything worse than a summer cold? Maybe travelling 16,000 miles in 5 days had something to do with it.

  5. zzyzx Says:

    angry- just got over one myself…

  6. willowed Says:

    Room is booked.

    I am with you guys. I would love nothing more to cancel this AC reservation. Please play Providence, R.I.
    I can’t be pissy though, you west coasters have gotten the royal but fuck.
    I truly hope you guys get a nice long Fall run. You deserve it.

    One question…the rumor is for 10/30 and 10/31 right?

  7. Robear Says:

    i think LJ may have been right. they don’t want to risk increasing the fan base by playing out west.

  8. willowed Says:

    I just took the virtual tour of the Boardwalk Hall. That plays looks sweet.
    Reminds me of The Last Waltz. Straight up 70’s style music hall.

  9. BrandonKayda Says:

    So this ‘Atlantic City for Halloween’ rumor is legit? It seems a bit early to be booking rooms and the like…

  10. zzyzx Says:

    BK – it’s getting to the better safe stage…

  11. El Duderino Says:

    That’s the beauty of Hotel Res….

    It doesn’t cost anything to book or cancel.

  12. Robear Says:

    the rumor is crap.

    you can cancel hotel rooms.

    Greekbound and Down!

  13. Gavinsdad Says:

    Speaking of legit info, my good friend of many years Is Furthurs road manager and he said Bob drank a bottle of gin at his hotel pre show on weds nite. There you have it.

    The Chelsea in AC is supposed to be a boutique….no casino…upscale’ish. No idea how it is since I live too close to have to stay over. Supposedly ok and also newer. Borgata is for the players. ZZ Top found a good bargain in the Trop.

  14. BingosBrother Says:

    Found a flat brim for bouncin fan.

  15. zzyzx Says:

    rob – are you saying that’s from a source that it’s bunk or just hoping?

    The rumor is starting to come from people I normally trust.

  16. BingosBrother Says:

    Fuck yeah Bobby!

    “A fifth of gin in case I don’t get in” tupac’d

  17. Robear Says:

    when do we draw straws to stay in @ g’dad’s basement for the run?

  18. Jtran Says:

    Tropicana rooms on Sat. 199.00
    Tropicana rooms on Sun. 69.00

    Weekend’d

  19. Robear Says:

    just hoping from my brain source.

    i want to know the last rumor that miner’s friend was correct on though, and if it was in 2010.

    shit’s changed. tighter lips.

    but yeah, the excess of dates out east and the barren scape out here is getting hard to swallow and go with the flow on.

  20. BingosBrother Says:

    Yo, Happy Anniversary Z!

    Also, Happy Anniversary to the best Tweezer of 3.0! I love you man!

  21. lastwaltzer Says:

    @Gavins

    So Phlesh is full of shit then, eh? Pretty whack weir would get so shitty prior to showtime, dude should no better at this point.

  22. hoedown Says:

    I got a basement, unfinished though… Even though most of you don’t want this to happen it would be the best ever for me.

  23. Mr. Completely Says:

    nice hat find @bingos

  24. El Duderino Says:

    @ Bingo

    llfa!

  25. zzyzx Says:

    “but yeah, the excess of dates out east and the barren scape out here is getting hard to swallow and go with the flow on.”
