Tunes of Tuesdays Past


6.27.10 (Graham Lucas)

Welcome to Tuesday! All songs in today’s playlist were performed on Tuesday, therefore bringing synchronicity between today and this music. Enjoy some of these lesser known selections.


Wolfman’s Brother” – 6.24.97 II, Strasbourg, FR

A heavy helping of raw, unpasteurized cowfunk from Europe ’97.



Bathtub Gin > Cities” – 7.1.97 II, Paradiso, NL

How about some more?



Ghost > Halley’s > Tweezer” – 11.24.98 II, New Haven, CT

Fast forward to the last Tuesday of tour during Fall ’98 in New Haven Coliseum.



Mike’s Song” 10.29.96 II, Tallahassee, FL

I often push this “Mike’s” in which the band got in some pre-Atlanta practice, vamping over Remain In Light’s “Houses in Motion” during the song’s second jam.



Simple” – 12.9.97 II, State College, PA

One of Fall ’97 most exploratory jams comes from one of its least talked about tour stops at Penn State.



Glide II” – 5.16.95, Lowell, MA

After a Voters For Choice benefit showcased six new originals and three new covers, many fans have been waiting for a return of this one-timer ever since.



David Bowie” – 6.13.95 II, Atlanta, GA

Summer ’95 + “Bowie” = psychedelic monstrosity



Keyboard Cavalry > Jam w/ MMW” – 10.17.95, New Orleans, LA

After playing an opening set for Phish in New Orleans, John Medeski, Billy Martin, and Chris Wood came out opening for an extended jam session with the guys to close out the second set. Fishman spent stints on vacuum and trombone.

    Yeah, that’s totally true, Mr. C, about the lack of fundamentals

    I think a lot of that falls on college coaches.

    But, then again, with the NCAA limits on practice time, college coaches don’t really have time either

    It’s fun to watch good players with decent skills become great players with impeccable skills in the NFL.

    I think Aaron Rodgers in the perfect example. Take the kid out of the class room, and make it his profession to study film

    and look at what he can learn about opposing defenses.

    Tom Brady is another great example. Good college QB, but it was the time he got in the film room that made him so good.

    Melo is supposedly putting the full court press on to get Chris Paul here next year.

    With an average of 600 responses/per MSG #phish pre-order denial rate = 12/28 – 72% 12/29 – 76% 12/30 – 81% 12/31 – 83%

  5. MrCompletely Says:

    strong PG and a defensive banger/rebounder and the knicks are in business

  6. SillyWilly Says:

    RB’s with DE bodies will be crazy

    Jermichael Finley is the skill player of the future.

    linebackers can’t run with him, safeties and corners are too small to body him up

    he’s the x-factor of the packer offense

  7. Jtran Says:

    What is this Pistons/Knicks style of play you guys are discussing. Lockdown D type of play taken to some sort of “next” level?

  8. Type III Jamming Personality Disorder Says:

    anyone want to teach climbing self rescue for me tonight? no? hello?

    crazy busy right now. new job, wife is away at a conference, work due for two classes, phish tickets on the brain, taking care of baby alone for multi-day stretch for first time ever, and I have to work my second job tonight.

    I picked the wrong week to quit sniffing glue.

  9. SillyWilly Says:

    maybe if the knicks get good, Spike Lee will start to kick down some edgier films

    i’m ready.

  10. MrCompletely Says:

    @sw that skill improvement is so interesting because it has to come from the player’s motivation

    if they take the time to do it, the results can be amazing, but they have to want it

    very revealing, who does and does not take that time

    peace all, back to biznis

    listening to this hampton 97 mikes groove. incredible. just checked the setlist for this show and realized it opened the show?? holy crap, fall 97 really is la creme de la creme

  12. DryIceFactory Says:

    Phish thought:
    Not sure this has been mentioned, but at around the 11 minute mark, you can hear the same textures from 8/3/98 Halley’s in 5/28/11 Halley’s (towards the end of the jam). Try it.


  13. MrCompletely Says:

    @jtran, right

    extremely physical, far beyond what is possible under modern rules. constant grabbing and pushing.

    also, frankly, dirty. no drive to the hoop goes unpunished. elbows to the neck and ribs.

    mchale played a late-80s series with a broken bone in his foot and Rick Mahorn spent the whole series stomping on it intentionally

    to a certain point it made the game more fun, I think. grittier. but the knicks took it to the (admittedly logical, competitively speaking) extreme and the game just ground to a halt

  14. Mr. Palmer Says:

    ANthony Mason, Xavier Mc Daniel, Oakley, Ewing… No one was getting an easy layup.

  15. MrCompletely Says:

    i really have to go but the jermichael finley thing is real interesting to me

    seems like part of a real shift in the league based on the new contact rules. the dawn of a golden age for slot receivers and tight ends running those kind of routes that historically would simply get you killed if you run them a lot

    topic for next time, @silly. def the most interesting structural change in football happening right now

  16. tela'smuff Says:

    has the Widespread Panic bus crash been reported here yet? no band members in the bus that crashed.

  17. MrCompletely Says:

    basically if you have a deep threat the 2,3,4 routes are open 100% of the time is what it seems like

  18. Mr. Palmer Says:

    No tela’s where did you see that?

  19. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    if 25 percent of people didn’t get lottery tickets and lottery tickets only make up like 15% of total seats, then that means everyone is getting in, AMIRITE?

  20. tela'smuff Says:

    it’s breaking on most jam sites, blogs etc.

    bus driver had heart attack, rumor is at least one crew member killed.

  21. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    ^75%, not 25

  22. kayatosh Says:

    woah 12+ pgs. since I last checked in. active convo.

    another crazy day at the helm. Thank you fake 3:50 PM push down. You saved my short ass.

    must take tomorrow off. strictly walking yoga and phish.

    12.6.97 izabella + jam = $$$. phat flowing phish.

  23. Mr. Palmer Says:

    oh no.

  24. Jtran Says:

    Gotcha mr C. The reason (too many foul/free throws) the game bothers me sometimes 🙂

    Glad I was too young to watch

  25. kayatosh Says:

    and weezo
