“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!

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

    re: mashups

    Has Phish ever been involved in a mashup beyond the numerous guest appearances….

    What would you like to see?

  3. albert walker Says:


    defender of magic. guardian of friendship. master of karate.

  4. EL Duderino Says:

    Wasn’t there a mashup @ All-State Arena ’00

    pretty sure there was

  5. thedayman Says:

    Haha fishman for sure has shit the bed

  6. Selector J Says:

    Not being sarcastic at all.
    I might be totally wrong but it just seems that’s just a case where they’re listening intently to each other Page hits something. They all give a look like “oh yea! that!” Then come back and hit it at the same time. Maybe that’s not possible? I think it might be.

  7. lastwaltzer Says:


    I by no means have all the answers. When it comes down to it were all just speculating. Am I smart ass sometimes? yes. Am I a dumb ass sometimes? often.

    my being a smart ass is in no way meant to make you feel like you can’t speak your mind on here. Sorry I made you feel that way, was definitely not my intention.

  8. BingosBrother Says:

    so, is LW “The Nightman”? 😉

    Chill dayman. Its all good on here. LW means no harm.

  9. lastwaltzer Says:


    Could be. I think what you were talking about used to happen all the time. I”m just more skeptical these days since it doesn’t happen all the time. Like I said were all just speculating.

  10. albert walker Says:

    could be Selector

    but Page doesn’t really hit anything cleanly. he just hits a chord that doesn’t really fit with a certain effect on it and drops back into the mix.

    def feels like an early entrance not a tease of a theme.

    you could be right. as a hack musician the precision they hit that theme though all at once seems pretty improbable. but like you said they are jedis.

    FYI – Here’s the PH state of the union speech…


  12. Type III Jamming Personality Disorder Says:

    you are in my head. I was thinking of requesting whatever song this is (with the “I want to L-O-V-E love you” etc.). spoooooky…

  13. albert walker Says:

    LW just gets shit for his sarcasm cuz it’s pretty dry and nobody likes a commie

    he’s not that bad kids.

  14. EL Duderino Says:

    What I find funny about LW is, when you meet him his personality is a total opposite in person as he is here.

  15. Guyute711 Says:

    Last day of work at this shit hole. I want to get irie!!!

  16. thedayman Says:

    Haha yeah aw I’m a fluffer I didn’t understand your initial view till you clarified that 93-98 thing which I can buy into them having themes and organically flowing into them ala Greek light and dwd->wtu

  17. albert walker Says:

    quick poll before I get some work done

    I could probably unload a Bethel lawn for $25 today

    should I hold it and risk sticking it in a fence at the venue or take the $$$ and run. it’s a Friday not the sold out night.

    I’m thinking grab anything for it I can?

  18. [Not Tom] Says:

    new job Mikey?

  19. thedayman Says:

    Sorry lw, that’s my bad man. I took it too personally sorry dude and sorry all for not gettin it

  20. EL Duderino Says:

    Go on take the $$$ and run

  21. [Not Tom] Says:

    AW – what is “delta hedging” ?

  22. Guyute711 Says:

    No new job yet NTM but at least I’m out of a job where I hated the owners.

  23. Selector J Says:

    @t3 freaky. I just scrambled quick to find something because the end of the record sneaked up on me.

    @aw It wouldn’t surprise me at all if I were totally wrong. I listen witha completely untrained ear so… I don’t know jack.

    This is going to be it for the reggae show.
    Got a doctor’s appointment. (Arthiritis and carpal tunnel inna mi hands and fingers. Too young for this crap.)

  24. albert walker Says:

    options trade on a delta which is it’s relation to the underlying

    if a IBM option trades at a 50 delta it’s price will move with 50% of the underlying

    if IBM stock goes up $1 the 50 delta option will go up .50c

    1 stock option is worth 100 shares

    to capture the volatility of an option you hedge it on delta with the underlying.

    so if I have 1 IBM option that has a 50 delta I would short 50 shares of IBM against it. 100 delta would be 100 shares. 25 delta 25 shares.

    when on delta you will make the same amount on your short hedge if the stock goes down then you will if it goes up with the option. you are delta neutral and make the same off either move.

    if the stock goes up you are adding to your hedge as the delta gets bigger. covering your short if the stock goes down

    this action of hedging short high and covering low makes money as you capture the volatility of the option

    delta hedging is how you trade the volatility of an option basically

    more simpler than it sounds
