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.

  15. DukeOfLizards Says:

    Alright so I just pulled the matrix source of 2009.12.04 MSG, spinning the YEM, and the clarity of the footbell hit in the jam is ASTOUNDING.

    Seriously. I’m not kidding.

    Yes, this is what I’m getting excited about on a Friday night.

  16. Mitch Says:

    What’s up Friday night peeps

  17. sumodie Says:

    @robear: me, an expert on better sounding AUD sources? llfa….I’m just a torrent slut

    anyways, looks like I dl’ed the mp3 version of 12/31/98 direct from Miner’s Archive

    and wouldn’t you know it, the source is the very same Derek that taped 7/2/98 & 7/6/98

    looking for the FLAC version now….

  18. Mitch Says:

    Robear I posted that cannonball and coletrane last night in the last pages. Voopa had a link in his media fire too. We both did. Look for me mocking Him.

  19. sumodie Says:

    no seeders on this and I don’t have it either:

    Phish 12-31-1998 Madison Square Garden, New York, NY *dAnK*


    Schoeps CMC641 > Lunatec V2 > Apogee AD1000

    Recording by Derek Gregory

  20. Mitch Says:

    Is Derek the one with the stealth hat?

    I laugh when Robear says “stop it” I always wanna say “huh. Stop what? Oh i get it” but it’s always in my head. He always catches me off guard.

  21. Mr.Miner Says:

    Prague 7/6 is a LP

    Re DJ mix setlists : I’d have to listen abd recreate the lists on the fly. Never wrote em down or planned em out.

  22. Mitch Says:

  23. sumodie Says:

    As others said, kp touched up the following source:

    Phish – 12/31/98 – MSG, NY, NY – (FOB) Schoeps mk4v – new source to circulation


    (^this is also not seeding at etree, so go get kp’s)

  24. Jtran Says:

    Listening to 12/31/98 now…when the second Mike’s jam starts you can hear the crowd cheer.

    Question: was the second jam in Mike’s always a given late 90s (or any era), or was it always something special when they dropped into it?

  25. Mitch Says:

    That and I just like to make 😯 😯 😯 as you all know
