TTFM: An International Encore

Tokyo 2000 Flier

Until we have something to talk about, let’s keep the thematic playlists rolling. A lot of people enjoyed Friday’s international flavor, so let’s take another dip into Phish jams from foreign lands to open up this week. Today’s selections contain some real heavy hitters to ease the transition back into the week. Enjoy the tunes, and by all means, “Read the book!


Stash” 7.2.97 II, Amsterdam, NL

Though its tough for me to separate this jam from its set—a frame of non-stop, top-notch Phish—this “Stash” flirts with Phish’s finest pieces ever.



Ghost” 6.15.00 II, Osaka, JP

Phish followed Radio City’s all-time rendition with this “Ghost” from Osaka—another mammoth version. Enojy Kenny Powers’ remaster.



Tweezer” 6.9.00 II, Tokyo, JP

The Tokyo “Tweezer”—a once in a lifetime experience.



Piper -> Makisupa” 7.6.98 II, Prague, CZ

One of the first fully blown-out “Pipers,” the improvisational centerpiece of the show. A stunning jam that had the audience in awe all the way to Barcelona.



Halley’s Comet > Roggae” 7.10.98 II, Barcelona, ES

After an aborted opening set due to sound issues, Phish came out and threw down this lasting, funked-out highlight from the last night of Europe ’98



Down With Disease” 6.15.00 II, Osaka, JP

Another creative monstrosity from Japan 2000.



Harry Hood > Izabella” 7.9.98 II, Barcelona, ES

Phish reprise the “Drowned” progression within this “Hood” then blow out its peak, bringing this Barcelona version into Hendrix’s “Izabella.” Note the whole crowd World  Cup-based “Ole!” chant after the set closer.

    Missed a sick opportunity today b/c I didn’t jump on it.

    A buddy of mine does work for the NYPost out here and today they called him to do a back story of J. Lin’s high school days. Go down to Palo Alto and go to his HS and visit/interview his HS teammates. My buddy was on another story so he posted to FB about this opportunity.

    I don’t always have the most confidence when it comes to trying totally new things—I’ve never done news reporting like this, and so I waited 15 mins before deciding to call him. He gave me the scoop and then I waited another 15 minutes before saying yes, I’ll do it. I was on the highway on the way down there waiting for call from the Post when he called me back to tell me they found someone is Palo Alto to do the story.

    It’s not positive that I would have gotten it even if I called immediately, but my chances would have been drastically improved. And I might have had a byline in the NYPost tomorrow! BUT…I didn’t get it. Maybe due to my waiting. Maybe not. I guess it wasn’t to be. But I learned my lesson—the lesson that Jeremy Lin has taught everyone—be ready for your opportunity because you never know when it is going to come. And play with the confidence you;ve been playing with your whole life.

    I was finally psyched when I was on the way, but it was too late.

    Carpe Diem, motherfuckers!
