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.

    Assume responsibility for problems is the one I struggle with most. I prefer, ignore them and they’ll go away. (Never really works).

    Weather update: going to have to brush off a nice layer of slushy rain/snow fromm my windshield when I leave work later…why do I live in this place? Easy access to phish can’t be that important

  9. Tom Says:

    @ Gdad

    A bit sloppy though. At least it is interesting, which is the most important thing in my opinion

  10. Mr. Palmer Says:

    Whole series has been interesting. Lost my interest in baseball this season, but this WS has brought it back some. I guess as long as i’m not watching the Mets.

  18. Mike in Austin Says:

    Been plinking along today, but looks like some great stuff today. 

    “Some help others in order to receive blessings and admiration. This is simply meaningless. Some cultivate themselves in part to serve others, in part to serve their own pride. They will understand, at best, half of the truth. But those who improve themselves for the sake of the world to these, the whole truth of the universe will be revealed.”

  19. Gavinsdad Says:

    You sold me C – im on that show tomorrow mornin

  20. Aquaman Says:

    Chan versus zen indeed.

    Do your mothers know you use this language?

    Also, anyone else noticing all the errors and stranded men in tonight’s game?
