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.

    You should have to take a shot of tequila every time Obama says “fair share” during the SOTU. You’d be vomiting on yourself in no time. ha!

  12. angryjoggerz Says:

    Love watching the Republicans not clapping for bringing jobs back to USA and building the American work force. That must be some commie shit.

    or every time the GOP says “it’s Obama’s fault” 😉

  22. Mr. Palmer Says:

    Wait, did he just say he wants to make it illegal to drop out of high school?

  23. Mr. Palmer Says:

    I’m all for keeping college costs down. A fucking men

  24. angryjoggerz Says:

    Wait, did he just say that women are equal to men?
