O'Connell Center - Gainesville, FL

In the days following their transformative Halloween in Atlanta, Phish headed back to Florida with Karl Perazzo along for his third and fourth consecutive shows. After their well-documented escapade at Coral Sky in West Palm Beach, the band played this show at the University of Florida in Gainesville. Perazzo played his final two sets before Phish traveled to the Midwest, off and running on their percussive pathway to 1997. Remain In Light took immediate effect as the band continued their collaborative grooving. Check out the late-set “Tweezer” for a show-stopping  highlight featuring this  emerging style of improv.


Jam of the Weekend:

Mike’s Song” 10.29.96 II

Phish blew up this second set “Mike’s Song” in Tallahassee, Florida, the show before Halloween. The band got some down-low practice during “Mike’s” second jam as they grooved significantly on Talking Head’s “Houses In Motion.” With Karl Perazzo on board, this piece really took off.

    @Selector J The phish faq is wrong, has not been updated since Indio I guess. Indio is the only 24/96. All the others are 24/48. You can download them and you will see. Or if you try to order all of Fall 2009, it clearly says 24/48 for the Flac-HD. They made the switch after Indio, but must have forgot to update the faq section.

    just grabbed the warlocks box last night, threw in disc two. Really liked the H>S>F and the VICTIM! Wasn’t too crazy about the Eyes, but I think I’ve talked with you before about how I don’t like eyes with such a fast tempo.

    That being said which disc is your favorite?

    @ LW

    I listened to the first set of 10/08 and listened to the 2nd set of 10/09 over at Leo’s last night.

    The shows are fine/great. The mix sounds a lot like WAN without doing a side by side taste test.

    Overall I’m happy with it.

  9. El Duderino Says:

    I love the speed-ball Eyes’ from the early ’80’s shows with the Jerry nasal drip voice.

    Here is a description of the full suite:

    “Terrapin Station” studio version:

    Furthur performed the full suite at the Furhturfestival in May. It was def one of the highlights of the weekend. At a siding and Terrapin Flyer are very psychedelic.

    Good Morning, All.

    I was just talking to my roommate, James, and he was telling me his dad is a big Dead Head, was at Woodstock, is really into our scene, etc.

    I never knew that.

    He also told me his dad is dying of cancer.

    I never knew that either.

    I always think of this community when bad news reaches me.

    I want to do something really cool for his dad like maybe burn him a bunch of Dick’s Picks.

    But, I am afraid he might have them all.

    Does anyone have any recs for some underrated/underexposed shows?

    Something a moderate to heavy collector might have overlooked?

  19. El Duderino Says:

    @ silly

    if you can find the C. Miller source of 7/08/78 Red Rocks…

    I think that’ll put a smile on his face. or maybe the 5/15/70 Road Trips.

  20. Jtran Says:

    Aren’t Gaga fans called Little Monsters? That’s kinda weird.

  21. Jtran Says:

    Sorry to hear that Silly..sweet idea you’ve got though, I’m sure it’ll be much appreciated.

  22. lastwaltzer Says:


    I’m not the one to supply em but maybe some of the rarer videos since that stuff wasn’t as commonly traded.

  23. butter Says:

    That sounds great dude

    Blackberry pancakes, with peaches on the side over here

  24. El Duderino Says:

    blackberry sounds delicious too Butterz

  25. SillyWilly Says:

    Thanks for the the recs.

    I think Ill try and find out how deep is collection might be, too.

    I have most of the DPs, so if he doesn’t have many of those, that might be the best bet.

    He is a lawyer and I don’t think he has many DeadHead friends, so I might be overestimating the depth of his collection.

    but Old DeadHeads, no matter what disguise they come in, can always surprise you.
