TTFF: Relics of ’98

Denver 2011

This Friday’s playlist is composed of jams from a different era. All of the songs featured today have taken a back seat during the modern era of Phish, but were once central jam vehicles. I decided to pluck stellar versions from 1998 to add cohesion to the selections. Enjoy the tunes today and through the weekend!


2001” 7.17.98 II

One of the all-time classic versions that never gets old.



Tube” 7.16.98 II

The wide-open funk of the Gorge.



Mike’s Song” 11.7.98 I

A somewhat glossed-over version that came as the second song of UIC ’98.



Halley’s Comet > I Didn’t Know” 8.3.98 I

The opening jam of Deer Creek ’98. Might we be returning this summer?



Free” 11.9.98 I

A crunchy first-set beast from UIC ’98; an instant classic.



Cities” 7.31.98 II

Another quintessential piece of Summer ’98 from Polaris.



Wolfman’s Brother -> Lizards” 11.18.98 II

One of the lesser discussed shows of Fall ’98—Greenville, South Carolina—had plenty to talk about.



AC/DC Bag” 8.9.98 II

A smoking summertime version from Virginia Beach; the centerpiece jam from the night they covered “Terrapin Station.”



You Enjoy Myself” 12.29.98 II

YEMSG ’98.

    Cinci 03 gin gets into a proto storage jam deep into it like tahoe light.

  6. albert walker Says:

    Agreed kaya

    I hate being part of a pack and bullish sentiment is at recent highs

    Has to make you think

    How will a -4% Europe GDP print in 2H effect the us and Asia
    Austerity in the face of a massive deleveraging should be fun to watch play out.

    Wish I knew.

  7. [Not Tom] Says:

    I’m jonesin so hard for some shows right now. Gonna hit as many as I can this summer if they actually have a tour.

  8. [Not Tom] Says:

    would be nice to get 3 different runs in spread out about 3-4 weeks apart

  9. butter Says:

  12. Mr. Palmer Says:

    Got that Wetlands doc queued up from netflix. Looks pretty good. Have to check it out.

  13. [Not Tom] Says:

    If Vegas happens you can bet I’m cashin in some pts at the Bellagio

  14. Mike in Austin Says:

    I’m with ya AW. Whether the world is that “coupled” is the question. I think it probably is. Europe is also our competitor on the global stage in many ways too. As is Asia. So for some companies, implosion of their competition is good.
