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.

You Enjoy Myself” 8.28.93 II

The final piece to Summer ’93, featuring a prominent “Oye Como Va” jam.

  5. bouncin fan Says:

  6. BingosBrother Says:

  7. Robear Says:

    sweet, g’dad. should play on your home computers, no prob. mail from behind the redwood curtain. about 1 week. pretty impressive.

  8. El Duderino Says:

    I’m tellin’ you fellas, this is how Booby is gonna spend his retirement. A few years back Booby was interviewed along with Marc Korann and he was asked what kinda band RD was… His response “we’re a mushroom band”. Then a buddy shows me a pic of Marc and Boob from that same tour/year and he was so high that Marc is laughing hysterically in the pic. Funny Shit. But yeah, Booby has decided this is what he wants to do in the twilight of his life.

  9. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    yo.
    so.
    halloween album rumour time.

    led zeppelin is what i’m hearing.

  10. BingosBrother Says:

    “Now I just need a ferret”

    For real. Mr. C has really opened up Pandora with this shit. my friend is now ordering a Celestial Portrait of his wedding picture for his fiancees 1 year anniversary present.

  11. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    i still find that RR tweezer to be overrated. i think i’ll go give that set a spin outside soon

  12. El Duderino Says:

    A bottle off Gin is pretty serious IMO. But then me and the SLF will polish off a fifth of top shelf vodka in a afternoon into evening, so… I shouldn’t really be one to talk. Gin is strong stuff, closest thing to grain alcohol. Juniper is more like a tree

  13. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    ferrets are fun!

  14. El Duderino Says:

    @ DF

    PERFECT!!!

  15. Mr.Miner Says:

    AC is on. ANd lets go Fox! That place is great. Zzyzx you’ll get tix to any show you want so just chill. The band is playing where they went, when they want. And you’re either on the bus or not…complaining about venues and tickets is getting ollllllldddd.

  16. El Duderino Says:

    And AW is Karl Hungus

  17. lastwaltzer Says:

    @el dude

    right but do you get on stage following the act?

  18. bouncin fan Says:

    A great tweezer DF
    Jazzy and slick

    One of the only real hot jams of pre Miami 09

    I do think the monster Miami sticky groove fest tweezer makes it its bitch though

  19. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    thought you’d like that dude

  20. BrandonKayda Says:

    Where does MPP Tweezer rank? I love Miami/RR but those are both so different – RR Tweezer being more jazzy while the Miami Tweezer is spacey/funk/ambience to the extreme – certainly no solos in there.

    MPP Tweezer, on the other hand, is sheer sonic assault – the deepest “evil” psychedelica they’ve reached from Tweezer in 3.0

  21. BingosBrother Says:

    Nice DF! The pic, not the crack about my fav 3.0 Tweezer.

    Lot ferrets.

  22. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    “One of the only real hot jams of pre Miami 09”

    come on there were at least 10 real hot jams pre-miami

  23. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    seriously guys, let’s stop hating on AC (this is clearly just a move that is sponsored by HBO) and let’s start getting fucking pumped for a new cover album!

  24. El Duderino Says:

    @ LW

    Hellz No.

    A bottle of Gin would take me a few days to recover from and I’m 40 not 63. I could not imagine how he must have felt these last 2 days. UGH!

  25. bouncin fan Says:

    Small theaters Greek and telly out west

    There playing venues I would have dreamed about back in the day

    No complaints here

    Fox sounds great

    Bring it
