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.

    Ever since watching the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo I like the name Lisbeth. If I ever had a boy I’d name him Jackson. This would be simply great for yelling at him. JackSON get your ass over here!

    This leaked Sbd project that KP put together is going to keep me busy for weeks. So much cool, interesting jams from yesteryear . Dove into the Bowie>Cities> Bowie and the pst Timber jam from Cypress soundcheck. Amazing stuff.

    And yes, the PNC Gin from ’00 off the hook. Had 3rd row for that show and had to pick up my face from the floor after the show. Check out set II of that show if you haven’t.

    Set 2: Down with Disease -> Harry Hood > Gotta Jibboo, When the Circus Comes, Mike’s Song[1], Albuquerque > Weekapaug Groove
    Encore: First Tube > Loving Cup

    Willow your concoction sounds pretty righteous. Although I think Quiznos started the oven toasting and then Subway followed suit.

    I am such an Italian guy that I rarely stray. My mom hits this place in Rehoboth, DE called Cassapula’s. Pretty fucking awesome. I only get the Italian. They can wrap them to go so nothing bleeds into the bread too. Hot pepper spread is key.

    My dad wanted to name me Wilmer after his grandpa (my grandpa’s pa)

    my grandpa even tried to convince my mom one last time to put Wilmer on the birth certificate.

    Thank god my mom said: No offspring of mine will be named Wilmer.

    It just would have been too weird trying to explain why I was a Wil and not a Will.

  6. jdub Says:

    T3PO would be a great name. Works for either boy or girl. It has a nice ring to it and your child will be the only one on the block with a number in the middle of their name.

  7. willowed Says:

    Willowed was almost named

    Wilfred Orville Bailey

    That was my grand fathers name. Can you imagine that shit. F’d for life if that would have happened.

    It reminds me of this:

    Sarah Wanda Esther Disorder


  11. Guyute711 Says:

    another classic Wilfred clip

  12. garretc Says:


    I’ve always figured that if I had kids I’d push hard for Chelsea for a girl. Little less sure on boys names, but I’ve actually toss around Ridge a few times, think that would be a good one…

    Also, can’t believe I lived in CA when they did their run up the coast in ’92, and I missed the whole thing!

    Oh wait, I was about to celebrate my first birthday… Now how old y’all feel? Haha

  13. Spasm Waiter Says:

    That dude Orville can sure drop a mean funky chicken.

  14. Mr. Palmer Says:

    If its a boy, and you want him to be indestructible, Id go with this:

    Charlie Sheen Disorder

  19. SillyWilly Says:

    they just wanted people to know the love and violence of the lord
