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.

    ** NEW DATE! **

    Four Mile Canyon Revival

    Colorado’s music community comes together for “Fourmile Canyon Revival,” a remarkable night of music to raise funds for individuals and families directly affected by the devastating Fourmile Fire near Boulder. The benefit concert will take place on Saturday, October 9th at 1st Bank Center in Broomfield, CO.

    Jon Fishman, Mike Gordon, Page McConnell and Trey Anastasio will take part in the event, on the eve of their fall tour. Colorado was the site of Phish’s first extended tour outside of the Northeast, and the band has always felt a deep connection to the community. The event features The String Cheese Incident, Big Head Todd & The Monsters, Yonder Mountain String Band, and Leftover Salmon’s Vince Herman & Drew Emmitt.

    All proceeds will go directly to the Boulder Mountain Fire Relief Fund. The Fund supports the local volunteer fire departments that courageously fought the recent fire and the mountain residents whose lives were directly impacted by this disaster and are in critical need of financial support.

    Tickets to “Fourmile Canyon Revival” go on sale this Tuesday, September 21st, at 10:00 A.M. Mountain Time at http://www.tickethorse.com/. For more information, click here.

    kind of odd it just says “take part in” not “phish will be playing”

  6. sneven Says:

    I thought so too… maybe just sit-ins? Maybe Fishman will punch Kang in the mouth?

  9. BingosBrother Says:

    Good job Sneven. I’m movin to Brahlorado. Kangfirmed.

  10. Type III Jamming Personality Disorder Says:

    daaaaaaamn! that could be a really great night of sit-ins and whatnot. why did I move away from colorado again?

  11. HixMix Says:

    Good morning all, just thought I would send out a thank you to Miner for holding down a great blog and to all who have provided myself with some excellent insight as I am somewhat new to the scene, (a newb, I know). I started my first 9 – 5 in the spring and although it has been a pretty smooth transition from college life, I do miss the freedom. However, being able to tap in every morning to an entire ‘clan’ of people in the same boat has helped tremendously. Here’s to an excellent fall, I finally have some shows lined up! Aloha to all

  12. sneven Says:

    Phish playing w/Big Head Todd would be kinda sweet… can anyone say 1991?

  13. Type III Jamming Personality Disorder Says:

    ::waits for inevitable SCI and Yonder flaming::

  14. sneven Says:

    oh, it’s coming T3…

  15. lastwaltzer Says:

    SCI is whack 😉

  16. themanatee Says:

    @ Mr. C –

    Thanl you for your Dead compilations on your mediafire page. Take out the fluff, give me the goods. Thats what I was looking for and I don’t know why I didn’t take advantage of that before.

  17. themanatee Says:

    SCI and Yonder suck. 🙂

  18. albert walker Says:

    Phish sitting in with a whose who of shit ass jam bands


  19. voopa Says:

    willowed – I was lucky enough to see the first So Many Roads. Unfortunately, that was also the night they debuted Wave to the Wind, but what can you do…

    TIII – Thanks for mashups! I’m a sucker for a good mashup.

  20. sneven Says:

    prolly gonna get a Scent of a Mule – Uncle Pen – MSO – Paul & Silas type stuff at the Revival…

  21. lastwaltzer Says:

    Gonna wave my way to the
    Edge of the world and jump in

  22. Robear Says:

    AW, any ‘Buddy Guy Blues Band’ albums out there from the early 70’s?

    Watched most of ‘Festival Express’ last night. Jerry looks like a really fun guy to have been around.

  23. Type III Jamming Personality Disorder Says:

    I actually grabbed all four of KMT’s albums and stashed them in my mediafire. they are in the HH (Hip Hop) folder if anyone wants the others. and thank you again for that TAB+Carlos show!

  24. Robear Says:

    Where’s the Gulf Oil Spill Benefit being played? Who’s playing?

    Kind of strange. Most wildfires are natural disasters, exacerbated by humans ill-fated attempts to move where they shouldn’t. The oil spill, a man made, man designed, man induced disaster.

    coffee time…..

    coloradans are always looking for a worthwhile excuse to have a festy. charity is probably the best cause going. even if your opinion of the participants is like some people’s around here.
