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.

    Some ipods will play AIFF files

  2. El Duderino Says:

    @ KP

    May I ask what you did to this recording?

    @ Sumodie

    i-Pods play AIFF but not AIFF files made from a 24bit/96kHz file

  3. kenny powers Says:

    @ El Dude

    i just played with the EQ to make it sound a little “crisper’ to my ears. pretty bush league to be honest. the source was just kinda muddy to me.

  4. El Duderino Says:


    this will be a nice listen I’m sure

  5. sumodie Says:

    @eldude: I thought that might be the answer (regarding AIFFs) -thnx.

  6. butter Says:

    so i shouldn’t even try to put these hd’s on my ipod, huh Dude?

    anyone know anyway to convert the HD’s to a another form of lossless for the ipod?

    @ Butterz
    “so i shouldn’t even try to put these hd’s on my ipod, huh Dude?”

    Don’t even bother.

    “anyone know anyway to convert the HD’s to a another form of lossless for the ipod?”

    You would have to do what “they” call “dither” the 24/96 files to 16/44.1 files.

    I think that maybe Trader’s Little Helper may do just that (dither)

    Megaupload question:

    When I start some dl’s, the time starts at, say, 15 minutes, then shoots up to 30-45 minutes or more (and seems to get stuck)

    Am I doing something wrong or do I need to just let it be for a couple hours? Torrents are paused, not dl’ing more than 1 file at a time, not streaming

  9. butter Says:

    thanks dude

    To create your own torrent:

    1.) Download uTorrent for free (torrent client)
    2.) Click “File”
    3.) Create New Torrent
    4.) Upload Folder Directory
    5.) Create/Save

    You can put in trackers as well for uploading the torrent to websites. Some sites only allow high quality audio (FLAC) in their torrents

    @ Sumodie

    Try stoping and starting the download… sometimes they get stuck.

    Just spent an hour on the beach in Big Sur listening to set II of 6/9/00. Having waves explode in front of your face while listening to the Tokyo Tweezer is a mind expanding experience. If you have the means, I highly recommend it. It’s so choice.

    Damn I love this band.

  16. sumodie Says:

    got the first of my TM tix in the mail

    time to sever my e- link and go for a bike ride in the hills

    …as soon as this Sand 12-13-99 ends…peace

    Dave- Was that a Ferris Bueller’s Day Off reference?!

    Leaving now to see Fake Jerry and the Furthurettes in Seattle tonight.

    Tzara’a Ghost- If you’re out there, I’ll call when we make it down and get up with our people.

  18. purplehumpbackwhale Says:

    @Dave – maybe my favorite tweezer. def top 5. its definitely not talked about enough in the phish world.

  19. Mr.Palmer Says:

    On an ipod, given the choice between Alac, aiff, or wav, is there a preference? I would assume it goes:

    2. aiff
    3. wav

    am i way off?

  20. Mr.Miner Says:

    for ipod use alac…everything else is bigger file size I believe…

    and yes, tokyo tweezer owns

  21. Mr.Miner Says:

    what are FLAC HDs? 24/48?

  22. Mr.Palmer Says:

    My 10.30 tix are in hand. 🙂

  23. Dave Says:

    Save Ferris…from a remake.
