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.

    That back-up power forward. Udonis Haslem type. Charles Oakley maybe in his hayday. Derek Fisher?

    Football is tough.

    There are probably the most in hockey, but my hockey knowledge is very limited.

  2. MrCompletely Says:

    simmons says the same thing about hockey and so does my best hockey lovin’ hoser buddy

  3. Mr. Palmer Says:

    Jason Varitek for the Red Sox is a glue guy.

  4. Mr. Palmer Says:

    Shane Battier….. i could do this all night. I’ll stop now.

    Sports and music….don’t get me started.

  5. joe Says:

    I’d actually say fish is the glue guy in phish…or is it page?

  6. Mr. Palmer Says:

    I would say Mike….

  7. Angryjoggerz Says:

    Glue guy, huh? Like it. Sort of like Zhou Enlai on the original CCCP lineup. Kept the Chairman relatively calm and was able to heart to heart with Kissinger.

  8. joemeg Says:

    Paige and Mike

  9. Mr. Palmer Says:

    Exactly Aj! You got this…

  10. joe Says:

    I think Mike might be more of a classic second banana (I actually did have 2 bananas today, by the way) along the lines of Scottie Pippen or Kevin McHale.

    just stopping by to say… i spun the 6/2/09 hood for the first time in a loooong ass time td and wow… impressed. and i was there haha.

    give it a relisten if its been a while.

    i remember at the time people thought trey was fucking up the ending but… its amazing how we’ve been trained to accept his new atonal style and appreciate it for its glory because now this hood sounds way better than i remember at the time.

  12. Gavinsdad Says:

    Mike is too Jackson pollock in 3.0…specially since summer ’10…to be glue.

    We all stick together we all stick together.

  13. garretc Says:


    I gave that Hood a first time run through last week, not too shabby indeed! Somebody came by and posted their own remaster of that show, sounds pretty crisp to this non-audiophile.

    Couldn’t tell you where to find it though, so what good am I?

  14. MrCompletely Says:

    mike’s become a star & soloist, agree

    heady Zhou Enlai namedrop

  15. plord Says:

    What up BB.

    Every 5 or 6 years I get all cray-zay and cut my hair, like, all of it, #2 guard all over except for some fucked up superhero cowlicks up front. Today was that day.

    I taught my 8yo son the “2 against 3” polyrhythm on his set of maracas, and now he rushes to finish his homework so we can have a little drum circle before bedtime. It. Is. Awesome. He already loves to play with the vocoder to make with the robot souuuundzzz; when I teach him that he can use a mic’d hand drum as the analysis signal for the vocoder it is going to blow his little mind.

  16. MrCompletely Says:

    trust me

    a few PA/tape flaws and the occasional light drift out of formation

    jam not quiiiiiite developed to fulfillment but they returned to it on 8/6 and crushed it

  17. voopa Says:

    7-31-74 is fantastic. One of my first tapes.

  18. MrCompletely Says:

    why did I mention only the caveats?

    this show is sick

  19. MrCompletely Says:

    word. phil dropping bombs in halfstep? crazy.

  20. MrCompletely Says:

    family drum circle FTW

  21. Gavinsdad Says:

    Mindfulness redux..this is simply the bomb hua hu Ching chapter for me (52):

    Do you think you can clear your mind by sitting constantly in silent meditation? This makes your mind narrow, not clear. Integral awareness is fluid and adaptable, present in all places and at all times. That is true meditation.

    Who can attain clarity and simplicity by avoiding the world? The Tao is clear and simple, and it doesn’t avoid the world.

    Why not simply honor your parents, love your children, help your brothers and sisters, be faithful to your friends, care for your mate with devotion, complete your work cooperatively and joyfully, assume responsibility for problems, practice virtue without first demanding it of others, understand the highest truths yet retain an ordinary manner?

    That would be true clarity, true simplicity, true mastery.

  22. Mr. Palmer Says:

    thanks for the link C. Starting at To Lay Me Down. No time to spin the whole show, tomorrow perhaps. Interesting fact i just discovered, Charlie Miller grew up 5 minutes from me.. I assumed he was a West Coast guy.

  23. Gavinsdad Says:

    ^when I find things boiled down to their essence like that I am stopped in my tracks because deep in the pit of me I know I can’t search any further. It’s all right there. And now I have to act. No getting around it. There aren’t going to be any better nuggets. Time to act.

  24. Angryjoggerz Says:

    Love it, GD. Total chan/zen battle lines, daoists smack taking the buddhists

  25. halcyon Says:

    Powerful Gdad…..Need to ingrain that in my head
