"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.

    yeah i said zappa. i meant traffic. had a bunch of zappa (whole catalog i think) but think i erased it to clear off my hdd a while back. the antics kept me away but if you get past that stuff hes kinda good at guitar.

    “LW, I was in college then so we took my buddies adderall to stay awake. That took forever to finally get going.”

    lyrically youre always gonna run into trouble with frank what u want to look for is his virtuoso composition and bands over the years. If you wanna just hear tech…check out the 2 “shut up and play your guitar”s.

    Good chat today….2 of my kids running fevers…so this is helping.

    I had the island tour down forever…now have the VW down as well

    Calling all Radiohead fans,

    “Just not that interested. “Mr.p

    I can understand this, although I will say that if you ended that word with “ing” instead of “ed” the flame gun would be out.

    “lyrically youre always gonna run into trouble with frank”gavins

    by trouble do you mean hilarity?

  6. BingosBrother Says:

    Best of luck GD, Cool it Down brother.

  7. Mdawg Says:

    Phish 2010 is where IT’s at!!!!

  8. lastwaltzer Says:


    That looks sweet. Caught four shows during the “in rainbows” tours, amazing stuff.

  9. Mr.Palmer Says:

    LW- i was careful with my wording. Its interesting, no doubt about that. I’ll maybe listen to Zappa once or twice a year at most.

  10. Gavinsdad Says:

    @lw – was really stating that for the folks who think that he’s all potty talk and satire (I.e. “antics”). I don’t have one problem with Frank and have loved him since I was a 10 grader.

    @mitch – “a pretty good guitar player” has been your biggest understatement to date. Dude was a monster. Go seek out “inca roads” asap.

    I kid all of you not…dweezil is truly holding it down in his fathers honor with ZPZ. I’ve seen him a few times over the past few years and he melts face every single time.

  11. BingosBrother Says:

    Tela is a different green person.

  12. lastwaltzer Says:


    I feel you, its dense stuff, not everyones cup of tea.

    That being said “Hot Rats” is a must own and I don’t feel falls into the not so easily accessible category. Same with “freak out” if you like mid sixites rock that works as a great piece of satire and rock n’ roll.

  13. Mitch Says:

    the SET took forever to finally get going. no boofing necessary. how ya gonna wash your hands at a fest…. i’ll just stop right there.

    i felt like i was tripping that night from smoking high qual bane (wasnt used to that) and popping adderalls. i remember breaking glowsticks and emptying them into the standing water while we waited. when the music started, the ground was glowing.

    …since then i realized how toxic they are for the earth. :/

  14. tela'smuff Says:

    i spent the winter of ’94 in a haze of Sonic Youth’s ‘Evol’ and watching Baby Snakes and 200 Motels non stop. dark, but fun times.

    ^intentional understatement.

  16. lastwaltzer Says:


    word, inca roads was one of the tracks that got me hooked.

    As for the potty mouth, I prefer the political stuff ( i guess that isn’t a shocker for people familiar with my postings) and his social commentary.

  17. Mr.Palmer Says:

    I have Hot Rats and a compilation disc, Strictly Commercial. Almost made it to a ZPZ show. I would definitely check them out if the opportunity arises again.

  18. Gavinsdad Says:

    Duh…I’m slow today @Mitch.

  20. Gavinsdad Says:

    I wasn’t terribly impressed with “Zappa picks by Jon Fishman”

  21. RamblinOnMyMind Says:

    Alright, you can click the orange for some Traffic. I put up a “Best of” collection because it has really good sound and is a good overview, since their sound changed a lot between 1967-1971. The songs are in chronological order, I believe, so you can get a sense of the changing sound. Don’t sleep on the last song, Rock and Roll Stew.

    I’m putting up Light up or Leave me Alone as a stand-alone song just because it’s not on the Best Of, but is of special interest to the Phish.

    I may throw a live show up there from 1970 too, but I can’t vouch for it because I haven’t heard it yet. It’s on my desktop, so I might as well mediafire that

  22. Robear Says:

    @JerBear, if you’re lurkin’ out.

    time for the ‘fbguys’ subscription braseph!

  23. RamblinOnMyMind Says:

    @Wharbl – Low Spark would make a great Halloween album. Plenty of space there to stretch out

    Miner- Laying down the law. I like it. Buck up campers and spin some Island Tour before posting. The (as of right now) high water mark IMO.

    Good call on 7/17/98, fellas. I recently upgraded to lossless with this source (and it sounds excellent):


    Additionally, it has been remastered in mp3 here:


    I was listening to Hot Rats recently and reminded of the brilliance of that record. Phish would blow it up. GD’s Zappa list is right on the money, but I’d add Roxy and Elsewhere for a taste of the live.

    Have a great day, team.

    I dont know I think the first three Mothers records area required listening but thats me.
