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.

***

Ghost” 12.31 II

12.30.10 G.Lucas)

The Holy “Ghost.”

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.

[audio:http://phishthoughts.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/08/ph2010-08-07t12.mp3]

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.

[audio:http://phishthoughts.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/07/ph2010-06-12t13.mp3]

***

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.

[audio:http://phishthoughts.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/08/ph2010-08-06t12.mp3]

***

Disease -> What’s the Use?” 8.14 II

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

    ^hey thanks! best birthday, ever. will post more, maybe today. rainy in the humboldt nation.

  2. Jtran Says:

    Morning comrades

    Anyone have a good recommendation for an ipod dock..I need it to bring out to the deck when we’re hanging out outside, or bring to a different small room in the apartment that doesn’t have any speakers.

    Preferably gets reasonably loud with decent/good/great sound and not too pricey

  3. ThePigSong Says:

    spinning 7 Below>WTU again this morning; I’d like to echo the confusion with why they slowed it down to start up WTU. That tranny could have been perfect. (I realize how late I am to this discussion)

    Anyway, getting cold down here, after a week of 90 we’re looking at a week of 60. No complaints from me.

  4. ThePigSong Says:

    Wook Alert!</a?

  5. Bad Nirvana Cover Band Says:

    I agree with @PigSong. It would have sounded way better as

    ‘7 Belo/>Horse’

  6. ThePigSong Says:

    ^Someone has to get that that dog to a Phish lot this summer.

  7. butter Says:

    Just cuz we got 1 absolutely perfect transition, to die for, into WTU

    The bar is set extremely high

  8. Robear Says:

    Butter, golf game getting rained out?

  9. Robear Says:

    Lost on Phish tour? Can’t find the venue? Need a hotel? There’s an app for that. Just downloaded iTour app.

  10. phoammhead Says:

    looks like alpharetta nite 1 is now sold out = i can’t pull any available tix on ticketbastard

    there are some good pavs available right now for alpharetta nite 2, but no lawns = must be a re-release

  11. Frycanthropist Says:

    good morning peeps!

    hips are sore from dancing to funkiest latin band ever!

    Had a great time at the Hippo last night.

    Sad to see it go, but stoked that they decided to bring some heat this last month.

    Was a very old school night last night.

    Whoo! So much fun.

  12. Frycanthropist Says:

    @PigSong

    better late than never.

    yeh I was the one brought that up.

    It just doesn’t flow for me.

  13. joe Says:

    checking out your paradox charlie posted a few pages back right now. sounds good so far (just on the first song).

  14. Frycanthropist Says:

    @BK

    if you are still around,

    check out Bela Bartok

    amazing 20th century composer that is very out there.

    I also happen to share a birthday with him.

  15. Frycanthropist Says:

    @joe

    thanks!

    top songs of that set: Pickpocket, Bob on Bourbon, Mellow Methodist

  16. ThePigSong Says:

    I feel they could have morphed the jam around the 8:00 mark seamlessly into WTU. Hindsight 20/20 of course.

  17. phoammhead Says:

  18. Frycanthropist Says:

    thanks @phoamm

    i feel pretty good about this band.

    has a lot of potential and is fun and tight and groovy

  19. kayatosh Says:

    g’ afternoon, pholks.

    got on the paradox charlie wagon today. spinning bob on bourbon from the boom boom room. nice!

    watched a bunch of phish on youtube last night including page’s new shirt and the bluegrass sessions from Nov. 94 w/ jeff mosier.

    I love phish.

    day two of herbal hiatus.

  20. Frycanthropist Says:

    sweet!

    thanks guys!

  21. Robear Says:

    Frycan, I have a friend that is an excellent musician. Guitar is his specialty. His take on Phish:

    “The guitar is way too loud. Isn’t the keyboard player playing? Listen. He’s way too low in the mix. “

  22. Frycanthropist Says:

    @Robear

    ha ha that is hilarious..

    I will say that the 3.0 mixes do a lot to bring Page more to the fore front, but that has always been a complaint of mine.

    Particular during some older Maze solos, Trey’s dissonant chord chops always seemed to overpower PAge’s solo.

    As I said, it has seemed to get much better now.

  23. Robear Says:

    He’s always complaining about guitar players. Must be in their nature…

  24. garretc Says:

    @FryLy

    Spun my first Bartok a couple days ago, Piano Concerto #2. Lots of parts I really liked, a few that I didn’t, all in all quality.

  25. BingosBrother Says:

    Hey Robear, ever try 3 Floyds Robert the Bruce? my new favorite beer. by far.
