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?.”

    shaggy dog
    dog log
    no dogs allowed
    life on mars
    flat fee
    in a hole
    skin it back
    yerushalyim shel zahav

  21. Plord Says:

    Back from the climbing gym. First time on the wall in um, 15 years? My hands gave up WAY too early. BUT BUT BUT the reason I am mentioning it is that they played _American Beauty_ and _Blues for Allah_ all the way through while I was there, and had just switched to Phish (w/ a ripping Walk Away) as in was packing up to go.

    I guess I’ll be going back tonthat place 🙂

  22. Plord Says:

    ^to that.

    Stupid iPad.

  23. Monsterpus Says:

    I’m a fan of Albequerque. (the Neil Young cover, not the city)

  24. cal Says:

    Best bustout ever was Hampton Fluff.

    Hope everyone’s having a great weekend. Very weird one here, but all’s well that ends well they say.
