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.

    Everyone forgets how masterful he is when campaigning

    Open to plenty of critiques in the governing part, but I like to see him switched into high gear again

    oil sands are the hardest to refine, + all the oil was gonna be sold outside US borders, and the line would go over our largest aquifer=Not worth the risks involved
