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.

    Read back c0w

    Sunday is Zappa day in B’more

  2. c0wfunk Says:

    yeah saw plenty of kang bashing earlier.

    Hard to wade through for me to get to the answer of my question. Upon scanning I did not see a mention of the contract stuff I read elsewhere. Did I miss it?

    The answer probably for real is “no one really knows” eh?

    when’s that KD/Maceo show?

  4. JP Says:


    r u saying you expect the market to test the march 2009 lows in early 2011 – like dow 6K or something??


    birds has definitely gone more places than kdf (besides bonaroo) you are right – to me it is another good example of one point of the round room post yesterday from Miner – why not play birds a little more frequently vs consistent repeats?

    another great birds – 8.10.04 – of course, some of the best were the island tour bustouts of the tune

    @ Type III

    Wed., Nov. 17 @ the Paradise (should be loud as all hell).

    Tickets are pretty reasonable at $25, considering that Maceo usually charges upwards of $40 when he tours alone and both Karl and Maceo are doing separate sets and then a few songs together.

    Alien Project = $$$

  7. Jtran Says:

    these last 10 minutes are so sloooooow

    Can’t wait to get home, blast some tunes, cook a mean Friday dinner.

  8. ColonelJoy Says:

    Not sure I can stomach a Kang sighting on a phish stage….but I guess for the benefit of fire victims it’s okay….I guess

  9. Robear Says:

    Mr. C, I can clearly hear you yelling ‘Buffalo Bill, Buffalo Bill’ on this 7/2/98 FOB. Right before ‘Fluffhead’

  10. Jtran Says:

    I love hearing myself on tapes. (it’s happened about twice)

  11. fromthetub Says:

    There are a few tapes that captured a much younger me yelling. In my case, it’s kind of embarrassing b/c the one in ’92 is for Bouncin’. Now you know…

  12. fromthetub Says:

    To clarify, though, it wasn’t yelling the name, just an annoying scream once it started. I’ve said too much. 🙂

  13. Jtran Says:


    date? 😉

  14. Jtran Says:

    I also still can’t believe willowed and T3 saw each other at the Ball

  15. Robear Says:

    ::that wasn’t C, he didn’t make Europe::

    but you cats r funny, and wendy, I want to hear that ’92 tape if I ever make it down to visit 😛

  16. Robear Says:

    the twillowed story is $$$

  17. Selector J Says:

    I’m indifferent towards the Kang but I’d like to see Trey go toe-to-toe with him just for the pwnage solo.

    I mean, who isn’t looking forward to Trza playing Sith Lord to Kang’s Ewok?
    (Feel free to photoshop that image, folks…)

  18. fromthetub Says:

    Not giving the date. Highly embarrassing. As soon as I heard it I knew it was me. I would like to offer a blanket apology. 🙂 Maybe, Robear, maybe someday.

  19. jdub Says:

    My buddy is on a TAB aud from the Oakdale this year yelling “Natalie!” as Trey is introducing her before Mozambique.

    Not that I am going to let a sit in affect my CO vacation but please Phish, no Kang sit in. I like my Phish straight up with no mixer.

    SCI should not get all the hate

    Almost forgot how bad Yonder is I’m so focused on kangster

    Now big head Todd
    That shits epic

    Im all for charity but is it fair to make us sit through a night of pure shit music

    Colorado loves that custygrass

  21. Type III Jamming Personality Disorder Says:

    It’s okay, tub. All the chicks dig bouncin’ right? 😛


    I’m still a little blown away that willowed and I had That connection at the ball. Crazy.

  22. Mr.Palmer Says:

    “custygrass” LLFA!

    I saw SCI once in Central Park 10 years ago. All i did was take a bunch of Molly and look at the girls. That was fun..

    Never listened to a note of this Yonder of which you’ll speak. Bluegrass is not a genre i enjoy at all. Just not for me.

  23. jdub Says:

    T3, Just read back about you sharin space with Willowed at the Ball. That is too funny. And totally random that Willowed mentioned a Lalas sighting.

    I love Big Head Todd and the Monsters. Never seen them live but have a few CDs that I keep coming back to.

  24. fromthetub Says:

    T3 – ha, ha. I still have fondness for it. More out of nostalgia. But the screaming was 18 years ago. Wait, did I just say 18? Wow.

    Your Willowed encounter is awesome.

  25. albert walker Says:

    The cheerleader I dated in high school

    Huge big head Todd fan
