"Fee" - 8.12.10 (M. Stein)

After a sloppy opening frame, Phish came back with one of their more creatively constructed sets of tour. “Drowned” brought the band into a new-school rhythmic-ambient jam, while they connected  “Jibboo > Gin” with a seamless segue. Trey left the whale behind on this second set “Bathtub Gin” using his Ocedoc to carve melodies into the summer night. After a quality mid-set interlude, Phish capped the evening by deconstructing “Split” into “Dog-Faced Boy,” and an impressive “Hood” which passes through an unorthodox segment of darkness on  the way to the top. All-in-all, this show is flying under the radar due to larger explosions at The Greek and Alpine Valley.

I: Runaway Jim, Punch You In the Eye, Roggae, Cars Trucks Buses, Sample in a Jar, NICU, Horn, Sugar Shack, Wolfman’s Brother, Time Turns Elastic

  7. Gavinsdad Says:

    Thx Fool…I have to look back but I’m fairly sure that I never caught a 4 song set 2.

  8. KWL Says:

    7-17-98 doesn’t do much for me

    12-7-95, now there’s a mike’s groove

  9. Robear Says:

    4 song set II = about 45-50 minutes long.

    Lop a few songs off from some cherry 3.0 sets, and voila’, the mythical 4 song set.

  10. Robear Says:

    12/31/98, now there’s a Mike’s Groove….

  11. Mr.palmer Says:

    Must hear: 7/29/97. Desert Sky.

    Gd- 4/3/98. That’s your 4 song set 2. I think you said you were there.

  12. Mr.palmer Says:

    Robear knows where it’s at!

  13. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    um what are you guys talking about, that groove is fucking $$$$$$$$$$$$$$

  14. Robear Says:

    you got us to list our favorite Mike’s Grooves, Dc. thx for the reminder!

  15. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    98/7/17, from miner: “Hot off their European tour, this was Phish’s third show in the states. The second set is the stuff of dreams, and keeping with the theme of the day, has a massive “Mike’s Song,” not to mention one of the defining “2001’s” ever played.”

  16. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    95-12-7 might actually be my favourite groove

  17. Mitch Says:

    listened to 7.2.98 ghost > jim on the train today. awesome stuff.

  18. Robear Says:

    but did you get on the right one, @ Mitch?

  19. El Duderino Says:

    Burnin’ guyute711 the 2 Lake Placid shows…

    Spinnin’ 12/16/95 right now…

  20. tela'smuff Says:

    although not a true complete Mike’s Groove, my favorite has always been 12/31/95. Easily my favorite Paug, and the Mike’s is huge as well, complete with Digital Delay Jam. but that Mike’s from Big Cypress was about as menacing of a performance as I’ve seen from the song.

  21. Mitch Says:

    fortunately i’m at the end of the train line so theres only one i can get on. 😉

  22. Mitch Says:

    train ride home is either gonna be 7.6.98 ghost or vegas wolfmans

  23. Gavinsdad Says:

    Now were talking….mikes>grooves become a massive blur for me…I’ve seen so many….my most seen tunes…thx for recs

    @Palmer – good lookin…yes, caught first 3 of that run that I won’t mention. Cause el dude is on here

  24. alumni blues Says:

    The 2001 from 7/17/98 is a top 5 for this kid.

  25. Gavinsdad Says:

    Would like to make it mandatory that people list date and city. I’m not that much of an encyclopedia as you guys. I know it’s a pain in the ass but….
