    RT, unless I was so high I’ve confused my memories, you ragged on Army of one when it started up 🙂

    Sleep Again really worked for me. I didn’t know the tune at the time, dug it in context, like it a bunch now. Deeper than it at first appears, that one. Set up a nice payoff for me deep in the 2nd set.

    So consensus is that the remasters are worth it? Damn. I just dropped $ on FLACs of 12/31, 1/1, and the Island run (upgrading my mp3s).

    Seeing Trey 3/5 at The Fox in Oaktown. CAN’T WAIT! Ticket arrived on Saturday. 3rd row center. May be nice for the singalong set, but I’ll be on the floor for set 2. Which reminds me, Robear needs an extra for his lovely gal pal.

    Listening to Peter Herbolzheimer. Great stuff.

    Not sure about Kung Fu…should be on within the hour.

    I loved Sleep Again at greek. Thought I was a noob and I did not know a 2.0 song, did not realize it was a Trey song. Really beautiful song and the lyrics are ringing very true these days.

    plord

    wouldn’t be surprised if I was dissing it man

    I was probably just being a smart ass. I don’t mind Page cheeze it’s the Trey cheeze that gets to me

    I admit at home on the speakers my ass is a little more patient with the two mellow songs back to back than live. I can get a little impatient at the shows

    dig both the tunes though.

    “Mitch goes to Umphrey’s shows
    douche”

    i love that the sci alter ego rips on um. clever.

  7. river trance Says:

    They sound like the Alpine DVD Plord if you’ve heard the CD’s that came with them.

    For a show like 8/7 which is one of my favorite I def like having them though

    I’ve been stalking that demon waiting for them to come up

    Attn: reggae fans
    Freaking killer album– not to mention a beeyotch to track down– from 1981 reissued last week for the first time ever.

    Reggae Sound – Earl Sixteen

    imo, it’s Mikey Dread’s finest production work by a pretty wide margin. Backed by all the usual suspects at Channel One (Sly/Style/Horsemouth/Santa, Robbie/Flabba/Ranchie, etc.)
    More info.

    Enjoy.

    I second poop’s remaster recommendation. Just coming out the other side of my first listen to the 8/7 Kevorkian. Euphoric recall.

    I’ve only caught 12 shows since they’ve been back and feel real fortunate to have caught 8/7/09 and 8/7/10. Both are completely transcendent shows- any era. Hooray for 8/7!!

  10. Type III Jamming Personality Disorder Says:

    yay, selecta! thanks, dude.

  11. voopa Says:

    Holy crap, this Shuggie Otis album is incredible! Thanks for the rec. AW!

  12. voopa Says:

    “Only 12”?! Dammit, I’ve only seen Shoreline, F8, and 1&3 of the Greek.

    Gotta get off my cu$ty ass…

  13. Selector J Says:

    you’re welcome, @t3. I absolutely love this album especially when turned up to 11. Can’t wait to spin the record on a big sound system.

    “Mikey Dread come fi conquer… conquer… conquer…”

  14. Selector J Says:

    Me and you both @voopa!

  15. DukeOfLizards Says:

    @voopa

    Yeah, that’s the good shit.

    Related note, I spent two weeks pulling The Baby Huey Story (one of the tracks is on the No Whitey!) from one seeder. That shit is how soul is done. Highly recommended.

  16. butter Says:

    or have Phish play more Ca shows, looks like you do a good job of hitting them voopa

  17. vegas wolfmans Says:

    voopa- Can’t wait for the HUGE west coast swing they’re gonna hit us with this summer*. Our turn for a taste.

    *Colorado and Alpine Valley is not the west coast. 8)

  18. DukeOfLizards Says:

    Another side note, I don’t think I’ve even come across an average music rec from the BB.

    Embarrassment of riches.

  19. voopa Says:

    I suck compared to Robear tho. Would love to randomly fly off for a weekend, but existing credit card debt has me grounded. Planning on doing the bankruptcy thing here soon, so I’ll be mostly free and clear when I turn 50.

    Wow…

  20. Selector J Says:

    That sucks, voopa. I got some people in my family going through that right now. Time tough. Here’s hoping that stuff works out for the best.

  21. voopa Says:

    Meh, gotta work it, right?

  22. Selector J Says:

    “it’ll all work out…” as the Mr. Byrne might say.

    There’s worse things out there in the world. Not that it’s fun to be in that situation but perspective is good.

  23. sumodie Says:

    Don’t know if anyone saw this, or posted this earlier, but this is a cool lengthy read on Dick Lavatla

    http://deadessays.blogspot.com/

    Yup, a fascinating read about Dick & how the GD archive evolved

  24. Corey Says:

    Can’t…stop…playing…8.6…cd remaster!!

    Without question, the best sounding live PHiSH ever put out. Better than the Alpine box…Way better than summer 09 cds.

    I remember the sound there. It was awesome, clear and full of life. The cd remasters put you right back (there). Wish they went back to inlay photos and liner notes (remember those thingies?) to complete the product. But, these days, immediate gratification seems to win out over creative choices for cd production. extra points for recycled product, loss of points for lack of cool stuff inside to read and stare at.

    But, I digress…it’s the music that matters and man, they sound fantastic!
    If you’re listening to an mp3, well, you are missing out.

    Fond memory of Robear struttin’ around on the hill displaying the Canandaigua poster that day too. C’mon PHiSH, get some pics in there to add to the memory. 🙂

    ^^Duke, yep. The amount of amazing music that we’ve ALL managed to turn each other onto, on this board, is simply staggering. Keep it coming.

    PHiSH gives us a new album to sink into every year or two or three…and we raise them by about 2000. Go PHiSH, GO bb, Go Miner, Go.

    G’night.

    Thanks for putting the 3/2/97 show up. This was Shelly last show with the band and such was acknowledged before YEM encore and they gave her a vocal jam as part of a going away present. A great end to that short and cozy Euro tour. I truly wish Phish would release another one of these great shows from said tour. Please note the 2/14/97 as especially bone crushing. They destroyed a little room, with uber thick walls, in a botanical garden with ear piercing versions of Free, Jim and Antelope. I call it the St Valentine’s Day Massacre, and we spent it in chocolate heaven. Brussels.

    After the show the band literally walked 20 feet to the bar and hung out with everyone. I needed some air and went on a fun journey with some friends. I swear we found the ‘Blue Oyster’ of Brussels, and quickly drank a beer before wandering miles back to our hostel. That whole tour was a magical journey like no other. My love for this band and their music was cemented that night, two years after my first show. I got it.
