Miner’s Picks – Fall 2010

10.8.10 - ACL (Graham Lucas)

I have finally listened to Fall Tour enough to be able to drop “Miner’s Picks: Fall 2010.” But there were far too many highlights, that’s my problem right there. So instead of limiting myself to one version per song on a tour that featured a fairly tight rotation, I decided to split the run into three chronological chunks and form three mini-sets of fall jams. Obviously, I could have chosen multiple versions of almost all songs, but unless their was a dire need to double up, as in the case of a song combinations (“Pipers”) or two versions I couldn’t choose between (“Ghost”), I did my best to single out my favorite versions without repeating songs. Without further ado, here are my picks. (Torrent link is at the top of the list, direct download links are at the bottom.)

    miner im diggin the picks man i was gonna compile my own greatest hits, but you did all the heavy lifting

  2. KfL Says:

    cannot get enough of 10-12 carini>bowie

  3. KfL Says:

    though AC is a better bowie

    toss in utica bowie and that’s a pretty damn good run in 18 days

  4. JeffieM Says:

    SC had a pretty fun one too, KfL

  5. Al Says:

    I see the Amherst Bowie clearly as No. 2 after AC. It has a section in the jam where Mike switches into a different chord-harmony and Trey follows him. That’s awsome

  6. Dr. Pronoia Says:

    Happy holidays:


  7. Gavinsdad Says:

    AC Bowie so good. Didn’t realize how good at the time.

  8. Gavinsdad Says:

    ^very nuanced version coming off the heels of that effortless and flowin 2001. So good. Like AW said, perfect SOL placement taboot

  9. SillyWilly Says:

    Morning, kids.

    studying away.

    the thought struck me that I love Llama in the first 2 or 3 songs of the first set. great way to get the show on the road.

    it’s about that time where I start distracting myself with dream setlists for Worcester and MSG.

    nice magic mushroom video – no wonder Santas reindeer can fly! 🙂

    and for any of you noobs, wooks and custies listening it, i’m talking about flying, not jumping 😉 :o)

  11. KWL Says:

    Ac1 on the speakers today. slick little jam in light up. there’s a moment when page hops on the clav that is straight nasty. then, Trey butchers sugar shack.

    morning kids

  12. KWL Says:

    Take out sample & bouncing and you got yourself a nice opening frame

  13. albert walker Says:

    little feat was always like Loaded one of those dream Halloween albums I never thought would be played

    figured the more Floyd, Zep, Beatles, Who direction

    when I stopped listening to just Phish, GD, and reggae in the late 90’s they were one of the first bands that always clicked with me.

    great songs, sick grooves
    written by white cats but never felt white

    since Halloween the whole vinyl catalog is back on top of the listening pile

    Phish can not only introduce a great band to a new generation of fans but also get older fans to once again appreciate how great a catalog is

    thank you Phish
    have a good one kids
    off for some vinyl digging
    that’s Christmas shopping I can deal with

  14. SillyWilly Says:


    was visiting my girl the weekend after AC and I wandered into Reckless over in wicker park

    I don’t know if you like that place or go there often. I don’t know chicago very well as you know.

    But, they had a decent collection of Nigerian, Congan, and Kenyan 60s psychedelic stuff. Looked like stuff you’d dig.

    i should have picked a couple up for you, but i didn’t have any funds after AC.

    don’t know what you’re listening to right now, but I know after Christmas when I get another hit of student loans I wanna roll over there and see if any of its left.

    Morning guys

    Spinning Detroit 09 46 Days right now.

    Then gonna revist 10/30/09 set II. Inspired by type II trivia, and I don’t know that I’ve ever properly spun that set. 3.0 set with a DWD, that scary Wolfman’s jam and Piper looks good on paper to me.

  16. joe Says:

    been playing this 2001>bowie about 3 times per 8 hour work shift since it went up. getting more excited for Worcester after each listen.

  17. joe Says:

    speaking of which, who’s got my heady floor seats? got way too spoiled by the ga floor at the 2 shows from Fall tour though. no bruising of the shins from seats after doing the running man.

  18. sumodie Says:

    I’ve unconsciously entered a no-phish listening phase:

    GD, Club d’Elf, Ali Farka Toure & Toumani Diabate, Putamayo’s African collections, Vida Blue, Mike Gordon, Hawkwind, Robert Plant’s Band of Joy, Little Feat…and so much live MMW being re-seeded on etree lately

    couldn’t wait for Santa so I ordered another 2TB HD yesterday

  19. Jtran Says:

    Starting off with Greek RnR actually, then to Indio

  20. vegas wolfmans Says:

    Here Here (Hear Hear?) on 2001>Bowie. Mind-numbingly good.

    I’d never even considered little feet a possibility as:

    1) Have never read an interview or story where the band had cited them as a major influence or “loved listening growing up”- previous Time Loves a Hero covers aside.

    2) Not on the 100 albums list from last year.

    3) (most importantly) any record with lots of slide guitar work was completely off the table. There would simply be no way Trey could replicate Lowell’s sound over the course of a whole album.

    I was wrong and I’m totally okay with that.

  21. Jtran Says:

    Was looking for a place to spin the 12/31/09 Piper and found it as the JOTD from Miner’s 12/31 post.

    Thanks Miner!

  22. Robear Says:

    howz about some footbell?

    oh wait, just another Lions debacle on the horizon.

  23. butter Says:

    Robear you watching the game?

    Good post AW

  24. Robear Says:

    dvr’in it @ butter. drew stanton? puhleeeze.

  25. Lycanthropist Says:
