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.

    I left My BLues in San Francisco 1967

    A Man and the Blues 1968

    these are the very hip early Buddy Guy albums I’d check out Robear

    these are great but in general he’s been more a solid live act that hasn’t kicked out too many great complete albums

    those 2 early one’s are great though

  2. Robear Says:

    change ‘worthwhile’ to ‘any’ and we’re closer to the same page TIII.

    Even if Phish doesn’t play, just adding the boys names at least makes it interesting, I guess.

    This kind of rubs me in a funny way though. I talked with some Phish employees about doing something for the Gulf Coast, but nothing ever came of it.

  3. Robear Says:

    ‘Cut / Paste’.

    Thanks @ AW. Any of those heading to your mediafire page 😛

  4. Aquaman Says:

    I am checking out this Reba, and if it has any groove in it, we now know the genesis of the great daytime Reba from Clifford Ball.

    Oh, yeah……..mornin’ folks.


    P.S. Robear what’s your schedule like today? You’ve got mail.

  5. Robear Says:

    aqua, going to check out a house to rent, 11am PST. I could call you around then? Or we could arrange this weekend to chat.

    point taken re: “worthwhile”
    and I agree it is odd there has been little to nothing regarding Gulf Oil benefits


    Cali has the Double Rainbow Guy, Brooklyn now has the Dude! Tornado Bros

    “Look at the tree! Look at the tree!”

    Rainbow Guy>tornado guys

    Seems if you like the other bands appearing at the Four Mile Canyon Revival then it’s a no-brainer to go if you can

    Otherwise, phish fans may want to temper their enthusiasm -the wording in the Denver Post carefully lists the boys from VT separate from the headlining bands, and under their individual names

    Sounds like guest sit-ins for the boys only

    With the right expectations going in, could be a fun night if in the neighborhood

  9. butter Says:

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


    ….lol AW

    Indio Wolfmans’s > Piper reached out and grabbed me the other day

    time for me to dust off my Hartford Tweezer, its been collecting dust


  10. butter Says:

    i get there on Sunday …not changing my flight for the show

    but thanks for the heads up guys

  11. Chuck D Says:

    who throws a festi on a tuesday?

  12. Kaveh Says:

    From Phish:

    Trey, Fish, Mike, and Page to take part in Four Mile Canyon Revival Benefit Oct 9th in Broomfield, CO: http://bit.ly/9A51Hw

  13. Chuck D Says:

    let me try that again:

    who starts to sell tickets to a festi on a tuesday? err… doesn’t have the same punch…

  14. sumodie Says:

    4 Mile event is on Saturday between ACL and Broomfield Phish

  15. Robear Says:

    Gee, I wonder if they scheduled that fun raiser to capitalize on the Phish fans in the area for the weekend.

  16. butter Says:

    AW – might be able to get you back stage for string cheese

  17. El Duderino Says:

    @ robear

    any of the Buddy Guy w/Junior Wells albums are where it’s really at!

  18. albert walker Says:

    I wouldn’t say any of them

    but that is a good point

    the 1965 Hoodoo Man Blues by Junior Wells with Buddy is quite nice

    one of the best albums from the era

  19. butter Says:

    its Kangfirmed, String Cheese gets there sit in with Phish members

    who throws a festi on a tuesday?

    You should know this 🙂 and as type 3 noted … any reason for a benefit concert and Colorado represents. Any benefit. Actually give Coloradans a reason for live music, a benefit, and a reason to party and you have a concert or festival in Colorado.

  21. albert walker Says:

    Not as big a fan of It’s My Life Baby and Coming At You the next 2

    that first album is a must have though

    “Gee, I wonder if they scheduled that fun raiser to capitalize on the Phish fans in the area for the weekend.”robear

    I mean so what if they did? Its a fund raiser, wouldn’t the point be to raise as much money as possible?

    I wish they’d do more stuff like this. Personnally I’d like to see them play with better acts but thats not really the point.

  23. Robear Says:

    AW, mediafire update time.

    halcyon, the jokes will be on you guys……as Kang sits in for part of the Phish shows @ Brimfilled

  24. Kaveh Says:

    @El Dude: OK. I got my package yesterday; Warlocks and Road Trips. Ready to discuss when you are.

  25. halcyon Says:

    D’OH @ Robear
