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.)

  5. Lycanthropist Says:

  6. Mr.Miner Says:

    You guys could be called:

    The BBand


    The Blackboard Convention


  7. Lycanthropist Says:

    Ha I like The Blackboard Convention

  8. Mr.Miner Says:

    I see the Amherst Bowie clearly as No. 2 after AC.

    ^ while I wouldn’t necc. agree with this placement, this Bowie was solid. It was just so lost on me after such a mellow, boring, crap set…throwing a Bowie on the end was almost like, “Really?! Now you’re gonna jam?!” As a listen back, I agree on its quality, but damn that show was miserable…wonder what made them decide “Hey, let’s go out and not rage tonight?” Happy sundays folks:

    12.5 : JotD’s: Bathtub Umass 95 / Stash Cleveland ’97…listen..enjoy the anniversaries.

  9. Lycanthropist Says:

    so many good bowies this tour..

    I feel like that Brim Bowie edges out Amherst

  10. butter Says:

    Second the Blackboard Convention

  11. joe Says:

    the ultimate pipe-dream for 2011 but one that’s fun to think about nonetheless. Phish turns back the clock even more and barnstorms the country doing 100 or so shows in small’sh arenas and large’sh theaters and culminates the 3.0 era in pure heat.

    I’ll still take a handful of summer and fall shows in the northeast 🙂 just was daydreaming for those who’ve felt leftout.

    I’ll give an oldie but goodie to the Blackboard Convention. “Bitch Stole My Reefer”. feel free to put in on w a x.

  12. joe Says:

    random NFL note. I love seeing the bengals struggling. Sportsenfreude at it’s finest. (my made up word of the day. a snigglet for you old bastards)

  13. jdub Says:

    Trey’s Vermont homestead that has the famous barn on the property is for sale. Pretty reasonably priced for 25 acres and a slice of history.


  14. joe Says:

    that’s awesome Jdub. should we start a collection going for the new BB retreat? underrated 4 seasons in Vermont.

  15. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    how have i not heard of bert jansch before 2 days ago?

  16. jdub Says:

    I was thinking a bunch of BBers could go in and do a time share sort of thing. Trade off vacation weeks.

  17. upstatenyphan Says:

    why no tweezer 10/23?

  18. purplehumpbackwhale Says:

    hooly shit! was it kwl who told everyone to listen to the 2.17.97 carini? whoever it was, thanks a million… cool shit

  19. purplehumpbackwhale Says:

    speaking of Blackboard Convention…. will there be enough bbers in town for the msg run to pull of a jam session during the day one day? i think itd be cool… we could rent studio space which comes with a drumset and keys and amps. all the non musical BBers could come and watch if they wanted.

    would really love to pull this off.

  20. Gavinsdad Says:



    blackboard convention


    BB VT Timeshare


  21. purplehumpbackwhale Says:

    what is happening with this carini?!

  22. butter Says:

    Damn that 25 acres is a sick, sick buy

  23. garretc Says:


    I’d be down for BB jamming! That’d be pretty dope… Wouldn’t be able to bring my own guitar though…

    Also, it sounds like I’ll need to listen to 2/17/97 Carini soon…

  24. KfL Says:

    i’m in for $20 on the timeshare

  25. KfL Says:

    dont stop with just the carini, give the whole set II a spin

    KP did a remaster of it here
