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.



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. BingosBrother Says:

    I don’t always drink beer, but when I do, I prefer to get shitfaced.

  3. guitarpicker420! Says:

    I mostly want to hear more Mike. His bass makes me shake my ass.

  4. BingosBrother Says:

    Located in good ol Munster, IN. I don’t know if you can get it out there. Next time you’re in the midwest, I’ll hook you up. their beer is ridiculously good.

    Big ups for Gumball Head and Alpha King.

    sleeper: on your way down, off the alpine release

    great Trey solo and all around great cover

  8. kayatosh Says:

    I disfavor phish when trey is too dominant. my favorite style o’ phish is the balanced, 4-way convo sound. If someone needs to be out front, I’d prefer it be mike.

  9. Robear Says:

    @bb, bring some to Pine Knob. Mike’s birthday and all. We’ll celebrate.

  10. BingosBrother Says:

    I was pretty jacked for that OYWD, but the pavilion didn’t really seem to be feelin it. I’ll take one of those every 1st set.

  11. BingosBrother Says:

    I hope so rob. I need a time machine those couple weeks. Too many commitments. Hopefully the factors work in my favor. I don’t think I can wait til august.

  12. kayatosh Says:

    love on your way down. a rarity since 1989. it’s been the mark of a great show in 3.0

  13. butter Says:

    Alpine Reba!!

  14. joe Says:

    are there any more true ‘bustouts’, or have they all been crossed off the list?

  15. BingosBrother Says:

    Started w/ Gumballhead GP420. Then some 2 Brothers. a little Arrogant Bastard. a lotta Robert the Bruce. Dogfish Head 90 minute IPA. Me no feel like nice guy today. Barton Hall Loser to soothe my soul.

  16. joe Says:

    anyone see the real lindsay buckingham on the “what’s up with that?” snl skit last night? I had a great buzz going at that point (stupid bruins) and thought it was pretty good. Also dug the paul simon performance (I only saw the first song and then went to bed).

  17. BingosBrother Says:

    Prep School Hippie
    Melt the Guns
    Dear Mrs. Reagan
    Glide II
    I better study up. Hate to let my noob show.

  18. joe Says:

    I guess that means that I let my noob show just by asking the quesiton

  19. BingosBrother Says:

    I don’t know if I even want to hear any of those. Usually if a band doesn’t play something for a long time, its because it wasn’t very good in the first place.

  20. tela'smuff Says:

    @bingo – i lived in Crown Point, IN for a few years and that brew out of Munster is legendary. never had a chance to go wait in line, and have never tried it. would love to though.

    bustouts? – Dog Log, Prep School Hippie, Dear Mrs Reagan, Leprechaun, Flat Fee, just some of the old school stuff. At this point songs like Dogs Stole Things, Spread It Round, Discern, Thunderhead and Friday could be joining that list.
    There are still a good amount it seems, the question is are they worth busting out?

    there is one, and only one bustout I need and that’s Dog Log. after that, it’s all luck. Never got a Dinner & a Movie, and missed out on the Fuck Your Face fun.

  21. Frycanthropist Says:

    i mean i would say Waves at this point is almost a bust out

  22. garretc Says:


    Second jam in Mike’s Song

  23. Sedin Sisters Says:

    “the question is are they worth busting out?”


  24. Sedin Sisters Says:

    what garret said

  25. Mr. Palmer Says:

    I’ll take a Waves, Scents, or A Song I Heard over most of that other stuff.
