TTFF: Ten From ’10

 

12.31.2010 (Ryan Gilbertie)

With only two weeks separating us from the kick-off of Phish’s massive Summer 2011, let’s take a moment to revisit some of last year’s finest moments, in no particular order. For anyone who thinks Phish doesn’t jam anymore, take a run through this playlist…enjoy….

2001 > David Bowie” 10.30 II

10.30.10 (D.Lavery)

The smoking conclusion—and finest segment—of a wild, pre-Halloween night.

Reba” 10.19 E

The divine creation that came out of nowhere in Augusta’s encore.

Seven Below -> What’s the Use?” 12.27 II

A delicate, introspective journey from Worcester’s snow-covered opening night.

Rock and Roll -> Carini” 10.22 II

10.23.10 (R. Gilbertie)

Providence’s exploratory set-opening combo; from an avant-garde “Rock and Roll” into a blissful “Carini.”

Light” 8.7. II

The band’s magnum opus from the Greek—one of the year’s improvisational peaks.

Harry Hood” 12.28 II

12.30.2010 (G.Lucas)

An impeccable, four-part musical conversation that, in my opinion, represents musical perfection.

Backwards Down the Number Line” 6.12 II

One of very few jams from June’s tour with staying power. Phish came together in an instant amidst a noodly jam and crafted a soundtrack for secret-agent.

Simple” 8.6 II

8.5.10 (W. Rogell)

One of the most engaging jams from, arguably, the most creative three-night stand of the year at the Greek.

Disease -> What’s the Use?” 8.14 II

Face melting rock and roll morphs into sublime territory, landing perfectly in “What’s the Use?.”

    2 weeks bitches!!!

  5. nonoyolker Says:

    Excellent list Miner – all winners there. Split spilt makes mine, but that’s Split splitting hairs.

    Greek Light is the jam of 3.0 so far, in my opinion. Not even a contest

    Was wrapping up my phish fast at the start of this week – dove back into many of these new classics – they hold up great. Amazing to have a new chapter of transcending jams. Life is allllllright

  6. Dr. Pronoia Says:

    so far msg simple is the jam of 2011

    here’s hoping it’s not even top 20 by the end of the year

  7. phoammhead Says:

    ha, LTJ! actually, yes and as far as tastes go, not bad really. 😮

  8. litteringadd Says:

    The Chicaghost is high up there personally

  9. Luther T. Justice Says:

    You were hitting some pretty hardcore chips @ phoam. Be careful.

  10. Luther T. Justice Says:

    Toyota holds up as a whole quite well IMO.

  11. phoammhead Says:

    yes, 14 days . . . hell yeah!!!

  12. Mr. Palmer Says:

    kwl- what did you think of that Phil show?

  13. EL Duderino Says:

    I haven’t spun it yet for obvious reasons but am looking forward to a DT Phil show.

    I went to the Halloween night at UIC which i believe was the first one he hit.

  14. Guyute711 Says:

    ugh, I am ready for a nap stat.

  15. BTB Says:

    Chicago Ghost is underrated/forgotten

    Also, Chicago DWD has one of the best 5 second Trey Licks from last year.

  16. Luther T. Justice Says:

    @ Mr. P
    I loved that Phil tour once Derek came onboard. With Warren, it was a nice merging of the Allmans & Dead. Saw 5 shows that tour.

  17. Luther T. Justice Says:

    ^Including UIC bitches

  18. EL Duderino Says:

    I skipped Campaign ‘cuz it was a Wednesday and had to work. I wanted to see Steve with ’em. I was so excited, and when my buddy Mark picked me up to go up to Milwaukee on Friday he laid the news on me. I was so pissed! We listened to the show on the way up and you could feel the tension/anger. UIC made up for it. Derek had never really listened to or played GD songs before. Goes to show how amazing he is when you listen back to UIC show.

  19. Luther T. Justice Says:

    @Dude
    And the tour introduced us to Phil singing Blue Sky.

  20. EL Duderino Says:

    It was the genesis of the PLQ. Phil was like… “hmmm, I think I may be on to something here”

    I guess you could say “When one door closes another opens”

  21. Luther T. Justice Says:

    And that tour was Warren’s first as a P&F. He was one of the first people to sing a Jerry song w/the level of emotional impact of Jerry IMO. He didn’t sound like Jerry, of course, but he delivered it at a very high level.

  22. Derp Says:

    No Manchester picks!?

  23. mrfergie Says:

    Gooooooood Morning BB…

    New job working from home most days – check
    Raise – check
    Tickets to Friday night in Bethel – check

    Gonna be a good day….

  24. EL Duderino Says:

    @ Luther

    Warren had played in Phil’s band before… Cuthpert was one I remember and Santa Barbara Bowl too with Kimock

  25. Mr. Palmer Says:

    I wish i caught that lineup, just once. Oh well.

    Got my confirm from PTBM that leg 1 tix are in the hands of the USPS.
