Ten Tunes For Friday: Spring ’92

Spring 1992 T-Shirt (Pollock)

Last Friday we looked at highlights from 2010, and this Friday we dig eighteen years earlier into the Spring of 1992. This year ushered in an era of creative growth that would peak at the end of 1995. Let’s take a look at one of Phish’s early creative peaks in Spring 1992—in exclusively soundboard fashion. Happy Friday!


Reba” 4.17.92 I

A first set gem from Phish’s first visit to The Warfield in San Francisco.



Antelope > BBFCFM > Antelope” 3.13.92 II

A classic segment from Providence, Rhode Island, that anyone who collected analogs has heard at least twenty times.



David Bowie” 4.13.92 I

6.25.10 (G. Lucas)

This first set closer in Tempe, Arizona features some early-era groove at the onset of the jam that just kills.



Stash” 4.13.92 I

Here is the “Stash” from earlier from the same set in Tempe.



Split Open and Melt” 4.5.92 II

This compact and powerful version kicked off the second set at the minuscule Fox Theatre in Boulder, Colorado.



Colonel Forbin’s > Icculus > Mockingbird” 4.16.92 I


Another classic relic of the analog era; Trey slaughters “Mockingbird” like few other versions.



Tweezer” 4.21.92 II

This sublime “Tweezer” from Eureka, California is one of my favorites, regardless of era.



Harry Hood” 3.20.92 II

6.27.10 (G.Lucas)

This divine “Harry Hood” came in the middle of the second set in spectacular outing in Binghamton, New York.



You Enjoy Myself” 3.25.92 II

A mid-set scorcher from Trax in Charlottesville, Virginia.

    A follow up to miner’s post on Thursday…
    @Mr. Miner, it’s in the little things…the subtleties isn’t it? Great good ear find. I remember that from my own live listen, but now need to go back as 13 years has made the memory fade away. Coltrane was beautiful. Wish I could go back in time if only to hear one gig with him. To be at Carnegie with Monk, that’d be wonderful, no?
    Other music…last night, Francisco Mela got everyone dancing like a PHiSH show…in the Regattabar. Tonight, I’ll try it at the Met during La Traviata. Think I’ll be sitting tonight though.
    Music is simply splendid.

    Review of California Guitar Trio 1-27-11

    Opening the nite with a classic ventures “Walk Don’t Run” set the tone for an amazing delicate performance. Three of the best guitar players you will ever see or hear, played with a perfection, bore from years of mastery. The unquestioned highlight of the nite is Pink Floyd’s Echoes. One the finest songs ever recorded. The trio performed it with grace and style only matched by the original. Some where Richard Wright is smiling. I hope Gilmour gets to hear it, right up his alley. Do not miss a chance to catch these gentlemen. They cast up back to a day and age of troubadour’s and minstrels. Shine on.

    The Kid

  17. William H. Bonney Says:

    Yeah that 2001 from the Pyramid is best I have heard.

  18. William H. Bonney Says:


    great story of Egyptian’s protecting their national treasure….

  19. bouncin fan Says:

    That’s the one. Thanks kp

  20. Sgt Pepper Says:

    Hey I’m looking for two extra’s to the TAB show at the Palace in Albany, my email’s deadrocks123@aim.com. If anyone could help I’d be ecstatic

  21. Mr. Palmer Says:

    Loving these ’99 Trey shows. Looking up the setlists is funny. Apparently before Sand was Sand, it was called Pistol, then Symptom. Whatever its called the trio shreds it. Highly suggest to anyone who hasn’t heard this group, grab a few of these shows. 5/4, 5/6, and 5/17 i recommend .

    5/4- encore- Row Jimmy, Last Tube $$$$
