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.

    Musically, probably Japan 00.

    But I think the combination of European culture, that I’ve always wanted to experience, and Phish would make Summer ’98 the one for me.

    purely subjective though.

  7. sumodie Says:

    phew…took less than 10 minutes this time

    happy listening!

  8. Robear Says:

    nice work, team. can you leave on all night? I have to torrent after midnight. getting close to bandwidth restrictions.

    any suggestions for cooking Top Round Steak?

  9. SillyWilly Says:



    If you’ve got time, like a day, but you probably dont…

    if you’ve got time you could marinate them in a slow cooker and have money fajitas tomorrow night.

  10. SillyWilly Says:

    if not you could still have fajitas.

    use some of those fresh veggies from your garden.

  11. SillyWilly Says:

    Slow cooker Silly fajitas:

    Throw steak in with tequila, Lime juice, a touch of cumin, and a decent dose of garlic.

    put it on the lowest temperature for 12-15 hours.

    man, im hungry.

  12. Jtran Says:

    Silly means $$$ fajitas

  13. SillyWilly Says:

    Yeah, I just didn’t want to steal Kaya’s method.

    but yeah, that is really what I meant.

  14. Jtran Says:

    Apparently there’s a rumor of Phish fest at Watkins Glen 2011. Looking ahead any?

  15. DukeOfLizards Says:

    Evening, folks.

    @Rob – pulling 7/6/98 now, will seed the rest of the night.

    @voopa – spun Cannonball & Coltrane on my way to work, before lunch, and as the day was winding down. Talk about a two-headed monster. Thanks again for the hookup.

  16. Robear Says:

    thx duke.

    Cannonball & Coltrane???? how / where did I miss that link?

  17. kayatosh Says:

    silly: the $ system is for all to enjoy.

  18. SillyWilly Says:

    so I have to tell you guys this, and I know there was plenty of band bashing here today, so I don’t mean to continue in that vein, but I made a quick trip down to Chicago last night and Im about to head back. just like 20 hours in the city…

    My girl and her best friend are getting ready for the Dave show at Wrigley. We’re like 2 blocks from Wrigley at my girls’ apartment.

    She is so pumped for the Dave show, but I can’t get her remotely interested in Phish.

    I just don’t get it.

    Am I missing something with Dave? Doesn’t Phish do everything Dave wants to, only way way more professionally/musically and just plain better?

    this is sincere, not a bash.

  19. SillyWilly Says:

    word. thanks. kaya.

  20. SillyWilly Says:


    I think Voopa’s got it.

    it’s $$$$

  21. Jtran Says:

    Different strokes for different folks I think. I brought my friend to her first two shows this summer. Classic Jersey girl, Dave fun, etc..I think she only gave Phish a chance b/c she went to UVM and it was the thing to do.

    But she said it blew Dave shows away, even though she’ll keep going to them whenever he’s close. I’m pretty sure Dave doesn’t go Type II though…

  22. Robear Says:

    silly, stop bashing Dave.

    sumo, kaya, voopa et al:

    is there a preferred source for 12/31/98? I found this one:

    (FOB) Schoeps mk4v > kc5 > Sonosax SX-M2/LS2 > Sony SBM-1 > Sony D100 (@ 44.1 kHz)

    recorded by Bob Siegl
    transferred by Jason Sobel (jasonsobel@gmail.com)
    seeded May 9, 2007
    recorded FOB, section 2, row U, seat 1, right on center aisle, the mics were in a hat”


    The ‘Ghost’ from that show is ingrained in my soul

  23. SillyWilly Says:

    I love the downloading kick we’ve all been on lately

    or maybe it’s just me…

    :::looks around sheepishly:::

  24. BingosBrother Says:

    You should go Silly. Hot ass girls dancing inside the Wrigley shrine. Beats sitting in the apartment. maybe then she’ll try Phish too.

  25. DukeOfLizards Says:

    You’re not alone, Silly.
