Ten Tunes For Friday

6.26.10 (Graham Lucas)

It’s Friday; and with a little time in between tours, the situation called for another installment of “Ten Tunes.” This week, new and old Phish jams are juxtaposed side by side in playlist that spans over a decade. Enjoy the weekend – but first, enjoy the selections below.


Wolfman’s > Piper” 10.30.09 II – With all the focus on Indio falling on the Exile and acoustic sets, this jam from the night before Halloween continues to fly under the radar. With a trip to the other side in “Wolfman’s” and an “I Just Wanna’ See His Face” jam in “Piper,” this segment is a true ’09 highlight.



Ghost” 9.8.00 I – On opening night of tour in Albany, Phish dropped this “Ghost” as the third song to kick off Fall 2000.



Tweezer > Theme” 6.18.10 Hartford II – This groove-laced “Tweezer” from Hartford during Summer’s first leg still gets plenty of play in my current rotation.



12.4.09 (G.Lucas)


Yamar” 7.25.98 I – While much of the focus falls on the second set from this Austin show, Phish took “Yamar” for a ride in the first half.



Timber” 6.24.10 I – Musical density at its finest – 2010 style.



Reba” 8.14.96 II – Before Hersheypark Stadium had a revamped sound system and rubberized dance floors, Phish still raged Chocolate City. In the band’s one stop between Deer Creek and The Clifford Ball, Phish played a wildly underrated show at Hershey that featured this gorgeous, first set “Reba.”



Antelope” 11.8.98 II – This dynamic “Antelope” punctuated a spirited Saturday night of rock and roll at UIC ’98.



Slave” 8.7.10 II – Capping this summer’s Greek run in style, this “Slave” concludes Friday’s Ten Tunes with similar majesty.

    Loving this Ya Mar, and stoked for another edition of halloween costume murder mystery…they better start soon! I picked up at least 5 new albums based on last year’s list.

  4. Luther T. Justice Says:

    In prep for the halloween run, I rec a HBO documentary on Atlantic City I watched last night (Atlantic City: The Original Sin City). Very colorful history indeed!

    I also watched HBO’s Atlantic City Hookers: It Ain’t EZ Being a Ho. Stay away from ’em fellas. Just keep walking.

    Nice Miner!!
    Thanks for the jams!
    Morning folks. It’s Friday…make it a great one.

    El Dude and Mr. C.
    I listen to the Dead every once and a while. A fan but not huge like you guys. Been to a few shows in my younger days in the early 90’s yada yada yada
    I have this dead compilation I just downloaded from a friend. Listened to this song:
    So Many Roads
    Never heard it before.
    Holy shit….It really touched me. Not sure why but it just hit me pretty damn good.
    What a great song. Is this a cover? Why am I not familiar with this jam?

    Thanks for the input, I knew you guys could help.

  8. Jtran Says:

    Willowed you’re such a noob 😉

    Jk, I actually heard it for the first time a couple weeks ago as well.

  9. kenny powers Says:

    Luther – have you heard about Boardwalk Empire coming up on HBO? First episode this Sunday!

  10. Luther T. Justice Says:

    I’m def excited about Boardwalk Empire. Everything I’ve seen so far tells me its going to be sweet. With Stevie B., how can ya go wrong?

    I’m also excited for some… East Bound & Down!

  11. Type III Jamming Personality Disorder Says:

    the Wolf>Piper cuts off right before the IJWTSHF jam. Boo and hiss.

  12. Mitch Says:

    So Many Roads
    Lyrics By: Robert Hunter
    Music By: Jerry Garcia

    So many roads was also the name of the box set released a while back that spanned the full 65-95. Had 5 or 6 discs. Im pretty sure I have it in my library.

  14. Spasm Waiter Says:

    Hey Gang- Good morning to all. Hope this sets everyone off on a stellar weekend. Figuring out all of my Fall tour plans. All may end up being nothing until MSG, should that happen. Any further thoughts or rumors on that? Super busy charter fishing season for me so I’ll be lurking at best for the next few weeks.

  20. carleethian Says:

    Thanks for the 10 Jams Miner, good to see them back. Does anyone have any inside info about Phish doing an ACL taping? I’ve heard this is the only rumor that is left as far as them doing something besides the festival in Austin…

  21. Hoedown Says:

    G-Dad knows what’s up. Love the Hots spread on the classic Jersey Italian. Is it lunch time yet? Anyone wanting a great sit down dinner (affordable) hit Angelos Fairmount Tavern- some dank italian food and atmosphere for sure. AC!AC!AC!

  24. El Duderino Says:

    So Many Roads she tune is touching as all get out Willowed! I’ve been brought to tears by that man.

    Black Muddy River is another one too.

    Comes A Time…

    There are several.

    I know we all love the guys from Vermont, but none of ’em can sing a ballad like good old Jer IMHO.

  25. El Duderino Says:

    I thought gdad is on his way to Ireland with his beautiful Irish wife…
