“Venues of Summer Vol. I” & Utica Giveaway!

PNC Bank Arts Center - Holmdel, NJ

As Summer Tour is around the corner, and in the spirit of the new soundboard tracks from the archives that continue to trickle out from “Past Summer Tours,” I decided to combine a compilation of my own with a contest and giveaway. Here’s the deal: in the compilation linked below—”Miner’s Venues of Summer Vol. I”—you’ll find 12 tracks from the history of Leg One venues. Just drop folder into iTunes and the setlist of the compilation will pop-up. But here’s the catch, you won’t see the venues or dates of the selections. Your job is to come up with the correct venue and date for each selection, nothing too hard, and shoot me an email with the subject line “Summer Venue Contest.” All correct responses will be entered to win one of three brand spanking new copies of “Phish: Live In Utica” DVD/CD box set! All winning entries will be put into a hat and the three winners will be drawn at random. You may enter anytime until Sunday at 3pm pacific, and the winners will be announced on Monday! Send your entries to mrminer@phishthoughts.com (FYI: I didn’t get all techie and strip MP3 tags, but just drop the folder in iTunes and play by the honor code. The point is to get as many candidates as possible for the Utica drawing, not to trick anyone.)

Enjoy the Tunes!

Halley’s -> Roses -> NO2” 7.13.99 I

Here’s a selection from Great Woods history that didn’t make the compilation, but is a retro-summer treat, nonetheless.

    Is it not I. as in, you are a better man that I (am). not, you are a better man than me (am).

    It’s been a long time and many brain cells killed as well as sloppy habbits picked up by texting/typing for me to actually remember.

    could def see that Duke. like I said even my hack as self can hear that shift pretty easily one of the first tricks you are taught.

    and like you said with all the recent Carini and Split actions it is something they have been leaning on a bit.

    llfa Kaya

    Sad to see the 11/7 Bag did not make your list.

  6. kayatosh Says:

    it was an oversight. I had been familiar w/ 11.7, so it was not part of my most recent Nov. 98 listening sessions. see, you are the Nov. 98 professor.

    4.5.98 cities — $$$.

  8. Mike in Austin Says:

    In the AC stash on the SBD, it’s around the 6:41 part. Really what surprised me more is how easily the dropped back into the ii-V7-I later. Almost inperceptible to me at first (around 11:25 to me).

  9. DukeOfLizards Says:

    Yeah @aw. Honestly I was starting to think that the major-key shift was kind of gimmicky until the AC Stash totally schooled me. A hot jam is a hot jam is a hot jam.

    Having said that, I would love to get one or two freak-out evil Stashes/Splits this summer, because my ass was seven years old in 1994.

    mango diesel

  11. Mike in Austin Says:

    I hate the lag I have in typing. Duke explained it all while I was here hunting and pecking.

    I just don’t think the band likes to go as dark as they did in the past. I think they prefer people jumping up and high-fiving each other much (AC DWD) more than big eyed – “I’m scared. I think I just shit myself” look. (11-29-98 Simple, I’m looking at you)

  12. ThePigSong Says:

    Thanks aw, I’ll check those for some specific examples. I’ve had the whole key thing explained to me by musician friends, it’s just not something I catch in real time.

  17. BingosBrother Says:

    Fucking music. How does it work?

  18. Guyute711 Says:

    I love dodging people who come to the door. Music blaring, me watching them hope someone will open the door. If you rang the doorbell I am not interested.

  19. bouncin fan Says:

    No doubt the hide under your seat 94 ~ 95 psych rock would be greatly appreciated if it returned

    Spinning dead head friends at their first show and watching the jams knock their assessing over

  20. BingosBrother Says:

    queuing up 6.24.00 set II on a rec I got from a buddy this morning, too bad it only took three hours to download with this shitty hotel internet.
