"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.

    zzyzx, article was long on scenery, short on musical review. We missed a t-shirt opportunity with the 8/9/10 Numerology. $$

  2. oldskool Says:

    are you guys listening to a SBD of 12.29.98??

  3. Mitch Says:

    This lunch time jam brought to you by Vegas wolfmans. I hadn’t listened to it in a while and didn’t remember the big picture. Phone is in my pocket. I’m wondering what all the hype is about (mind you I’m prob at 10 mins) and Trey comes in with his loops. Here we go… And then craziness ensues foe the rest. Currently in a NO2 zone. Feels like anyway. Is fishman on his vacuum?

    Gdad, that Reba was amazing. Miner hyped the msg one saying it had an old school feel which I’ve still yet to really grasp tho I’m working on it.

    Robear and butter will looms like pollock art with big noses and arms and legs outta place.

  4. Mitch Says:

    I still vote for that reba as my fav of the year. That place was uber blessed. I remember looking over at gdad when it was done. We both had the taste of that floor in our mouths from our jaws gaping open for 10 mins.

  5. Leo Weaver Says:

    @mitch…yes, vacuum included. You and gdad reppin’ the Philly 11.24.09 pretty hard. Your persistence rewarded me with lots of playtime earlier this year. Def agree it’s maybe underrated…nice Reba.

  6. Mitch Says:

    I think I’m being abducted by aliens running a circus. 24 min mark now.

  7. Leo Weaver Says:

    Just placed order for fall veggie seed and garlic starters. Looking forward to hopefully a better fall/winter than this summer which left much to be desired.

  8. Mitch Says:

    I woulda turned to my buddy and called >Esther the way that sounded. Instead, we’ll go into piper and amp the place back up. Shoulda done no spoilers since I forgot what it went into.

  9. Mitch Says:

    Last 5 mins of this jam are slow jam with your lady time. Can I get an album of just this stuff for an hour? Talk about nice to chill to.

    Miner/all, where should I go for more of this slow jam groove fest?

  10. voopa Says:

    That part of that jam always reminds me of Low Spark of High-Heeled Boys.

  11. Mitch Says:

    *uber blissed

    ^stupid iPhone doesn’t know what blissed is.

  12. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    so. remember yesterday when i said you guys have short memories and have already forgotten a lot of jams from last year? and remember last week when i said the gorge hood was the first great hood of 3.0 and many people either scoffed at me or said they didn’t even really remember it? well you know that sustained note that the greek hood is famous for? trey does the EXACT SAME THING in the gorge hood from last year, and the rest of that jam is also beautiful. so yeah, go check out that hood again. lest we forget.

  13. Mitch Says:

    Youtube is schooling me on Low spark of high heeled boys. You just made a traffic fan.

    This is great!

    Ok tired of being the only one filling the page. Don’t want this to turn into Mitch’s Thoughts up in here. Catch uou peeps later.

    addicted to 2000-09-15 tube

  15. Leo Weaver Says:

    Df…Gorge Hood is stellar. Haven’t listened to much ’09 recently but would have to initially agree with your assessment. For some reason the MPP ’09 Hood sticks out as being a good one too, but I only listen to 46 Days from that show. Check those out if you’re listening back.

  16. lastwaltzer Says:


    Check Empty Pages, good stuff.

  17. Mitch Says:

    was just telling one of my co-workers how i just got schooled on traffic and he was telling me how badass steve winwood used to be before he went solo pop. said he saw him at the garden and he only played one traffic song “empty pages” and he took the solo and it was the best of the show. so thats two suggestions for that one.

    looks like i’ve got some traffic listening to do on my days off.

  18. RamblinOnMyMind Says:

    @Mitch – you didn’t know Low Spark or Traffic? Now you have to ease off the VW trash talk 😉

    The electrolux snuck up on me the first time I was listening. Fish incorporates it into the jam/drone really well and I didn’t even realize he was playing for a minute. As I said the other day, could be the most natural use of vacuum I’ve heard from the band. Not sure if that is saying anything, but still…

    Traffic – Rock and Roll Stew. Same album as Low Spark. Cool funky song. Their earlier stuff is kind of British whimsical psychedelia that’s hit or miss to my ears, but some of it is awesome.

  19. lastwaltzer Says:


    I saw Winwood at Bonnaroo in 04′ solid show. Had a great time, which led me to grab tickets to see him at the HOB in chicago, top five worst shows ever.

    The whole time the crowd was talking and got louder during Low Spark. Of course “Higher Love” starts up and the place goes APE SHIT! Scary stuff.

  20. RamblinOnMyMind Says:


    I saw Winwood open for the Dead in I think 2003. Pretty sure he sat in for Loose Lucy. Higher Love is awful though.

    Don’t forget about Blind Faith. That album is uneven, but “Had to Cry Today,” “Can’t Find My Way Home,” and “Presence of the Lord” are classics.

  21. lastwaltzer Says:

    Used to love “can’t find my way home” good stuff.

  22. Mitch Says:

    I saw steve at bonnaroo in 04 as well which was also before the dead. that dead show was actually really good. i only went to see steve to have a good spot for the dead.

    remember that rain?? that was nutso but we had ponchos so we just sucked it up and hot boxed them.

    i knew of traffic just not familiar with their music. and ive heard vegas wolfmans but just not recently. it may as well have been new even tho i think i listened to it earlier this summer.

  23. Mr.Miner Says:

    miner leaves for a few days & we discover 20% of the BB either hasn’t heard the island tour or vegas wolfman’s, or doesn’t like the vegas wolfmans

    ^ before posting again, whoever this applies to must sign off now.
    1. Listen to 4.2.-4.4.98
    2. Internalize the Vegas Wolfmans

    Then you may report back with your finding.

  24. Robear Says:

    @ oldskool, I have the ‘Matrix’ from 12/29/98 pretty gooey.

  25. Mr.Miner Says:

    Mike’s Grooves peaked in 95 and then had a renaissance in 97…IMO
