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 1992β€”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.

    @dave: thanks for the heads up, i’ve been slowly grabbing those FTA torrents. kp’s SBD Project kinda distracted me due to its easy plug n play aspect

  2. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    thanks @sumodie, but im looking for the SBD FLAC, i’m pretty sure it’s out there like dave says

  3. Aquaman Says:

    I can’t stop looking at juggaloo’s.

    Who would have thought I would make that statement and boobs NOT be involved?

    TreyDHD in full effect on the Antelope

    On Spring ’92

    Who has a copy of 4-4-92 Set 2?

    I had Analog gen 1 at one point, but lost .

    Never seen set two in digital format ever, been looking for some time.

    I will change my avatar to an image of your choosing for a week if you can provide it?

    Barkley rules. Still love that he was the one that dominated the headlines for the Dream Team. Just smashing skinny greek guys to the floor with elbows. Ha ha.

  8. jdub Says:

    Exactly Spasm. Musical ideas were dispensed quicker than tacos at a T- Bell drive thru. Entropy rather than density.

  9. DukeOfLizards Says:

    All-time favorite Charles Barkley moment:

    Maybe 5-6 years ago, he was emceeing a celebrity free throw contest (I think that’s what it was) during All Star weekend, and said the following:

    “These two are gonna be playing for their favorite charities, with the winner getting…”
    (Looks at giant check)
    “… whoa, that’s two hands of blackjack! $30,000!”

  10. SillyWilly Says:

    sir charles just has fun on air. that’s why he is the best. he’s having a good time.

    and for the most part he has a good time without making it be at someone else’s expense.

    beats the shit out of reggie miller thats for sure.

    reggie miller and johnny miller: the two millers who can’t step out of the past.

    “when I shot 62 in the US Open” was it 62??

    “when I led the league in 3s”

    that’s how every sentence from their mouth begins.

    wow. didn’t realize i had it in for reg and j-millz so hard.

  11. Spasm Waiter Says:

    Jdub- A little like T Morgan, they don’t care about the rules and have no filter. In a good way.

  12. Spasm Waiter Says:

    SW- I can’t stand J Miller. Nor can the tour players. Interesting life though. Mormon, right?

  13. Guyute711 Says:

    I hate the homers Silly. I wonder who Cowher picks to win the SB or every Steeler game next year for that matter.

  14. goochy Says:

    That ’92 Tweezer gets a Mike *ting* of approval.

  15. DukeOfLizards Says:

    Johnny Miller would be great if he could stop talking about himself. His actual golf analysis is usually spot-on, and I think a big reason the players don’t like him is how honest he is about them, which I think usually pretty interesting.

  16. jdub Says:

    Who’s got a list of the best Barkley one liners? Duke’s is pretty funny, but I know there are tons of em’. Gotta love a trash talking, 6’6″ stump that lead the league in rebounds one year.

  17. DukeOfLizards Says:

    I’ll take Miller over Faldo every day of the week and twice on Sundays (literally).

  18. SillyWilly Says:


    Yeah, he’s Mormon, which is cool. I grew up in SLC so I have tons of Mormon friends.

    what I hate is his arrogant attitude. He’s headier than thou in the golf way.

    That’s what bugs me. I think he has major Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods envy, too.

    and tiger’s woes probably made his life.


    i can’t hate the homers, really. because i’d be a hypocrite.

    Lou Holtz is the man.
    even Mark May loves Lou.

  19. Type III Jamming Personality Disorder Says:

    thanks for the names. it’s a work in progress but we are also up against her sister who is imminently popping one out so we don’t want to pick one only to have it used in the next day or so.

    what, you think I haven’t been researching all of the irish names? there are a few I really dig, with one in the forefront for a girl for a dual reason. Maeve is a great irish name that is pretty classic without being overly popular (and I have a friend who opened a bar a bunch of years ago in Chicago with that name). best part? wait for it… it translates from gaelic as “joy”. just read my post after JB2 if you are unclear why that would mean a lot to me πŸ˜‰

    I was kind of expecting more funny responses, but ChuckSWED wins with the acronymic beauty that is Sarah Wanda Esther [Disorder]. truly inspired right there. 😯

  20. Guyute711 Says:

    Ugh, I can’t stand Lou Holtz

    top 50 Barkley quotes: enjoy

    Worst broadcasting decision in the history of sports:

    Chris Berman calling the first two days of the 2008 US Open.

    Has to be, right?

    one word: “Heidi”
    there is no other answer here.

  25. SillyWilly Says:

    I know, Guyute.

    i can’t help it. Well, I don’t want to help it.


    kinda funny. or not funny depending on how you see my sitch, but:

    a couple weekends ago, my girl started talking about gaelic names. asking me if i liked this or that name.

    i was like….ummmmm, what’s going on here??

    as i’ve said so many times, my girl is super irish, so when the time comes I’m sure we’ll have some colleens and colins running around
