TTFF: Phish2k—Summer Tour

10.23.2010 (Dave Lavery)

The Summer of 2000—moving from Tokyo, Japan to Columbus, Ohio—represented Phish’s last true push of creative music. Though the band’s playing in Japan was on another level than in the states, the band, nonetheless, cranked through a solid summer tour—their last until 2003. Once the fall came, Phish shows turned less consistently creative, and standout jams came less frequently as the band moved towards hiatus. Today’s playlist features some of the tour’s lesser known jams to go along with a couple fan favorites, all arranged chronologically as they came in the Summer of 2000. Enjoy ten more tunes as the wait for summer dates continues!

***

Piper” 6.10.00 I, Tokyo, JP

The only “Piper” of Japan happened in a big way in the first set of Tokyo’s second show.

Birds -> Catapult > Heavy Things” 6.29.00 II, Holmdel, NJ

Phish dropped this stellar piece of improv to open the final set of PNC’s two night stand. The dark and twisted “Birds” jam has hints of Coltrane’s “A Love Supreme” laced throughout .

Ghost” 7.1.00 II, Hartford, CT

This scorching, second-set closing “Ghost” snuck in the door at the last minute to highlight the show.

Limb by Limb -> 2001” 7.6.00 II, Toronto, ON

Split Open and Melt” 7.7.00 II, Burgettstown, PA

Though not with the unbridled fury of 1994, Phish could still rip a serious “Melt” in 2000. Can they still?

Mike’s Song” 7.14.00 II, Columbus, OH

A driving and sinister jam transforms into beauty, representing one of the last—if not the final—versions of “Mike’s” with two jams.

Down With Disease -> WMMGW” 7.15.00 II, Columbus, OH

Summer’s dramatic “farewell jam” came at the top of the second set, while sliding smoothly and unexpectedly into “While My Guitar Gently Weeps.”

    MR. P – i thought Jackie brought a lot of energy to the band Thursday night. his vocals were above average, and while not the most dynamic guitar player ever, he held his own amongst giants. Phil feeds off of the the energy Jackie puts off, so I think it’s a seeing it live type of deal with him.

    Estimated was sick. weird swampy reggae jam>Eyes.

    after getting through all the big highlights, check out the Althea jam with Warren and Scofield both burning the house down.

    for real, Phil, take this band on tour this summer.

  8. El Duderino Says:

    I like Jackie’s vocals… his version of Hard To Handle is redick!

  9. tela'smuff Says:

    dude – i got those two sources you told me to get. have you seen 2/18 come up yet? doesn’t seem to be listed.

    I also think Phish should come back to the 1st Bank Center. such a good venue, small, good sound, puff all you want.

  10. tela'smuff Says:

    also, now that i have lots of storage, i’m going full FLAC now. when i want to listen to this on my iTunes, how do i go about doing the transfer? how do you guys do it?

  11. Mr. Palmer Says:

    Xact is free program. You can convert to Alac. Honestly, I listen to my flacs through COG player almost exclusively.

  12. garretc Says:

    Yeah tela’s, I use xAct as well. Easy as pie.

  13. El Duderino Says:

    I convert flacs to wav files… for i-tunes… Alac is easier

  14. El Duderino Says:

    it’s xACT actually ;)

  15. Gavinsdad Says:

    @telas – I’ve mentioned along the way that my friend Fred is the road mgr for mule/furthur/PAF. Reason youve seen more Furthur than PAF lately is pure economics run by Phils tyrannical wife. Furthur is a more profitable draw than PAF. Furthur was icing on the $ cake once they secured Fake Jer (who gets a nice paycheck but is more affordable than herring or Haynes etc)

    The GD fans are also up in arms about Phil’s money grab at Terrapin Crossroads as well. I’m sure many of you have reads Phil’s recent justifications of the high ticket pricing at the upcoming run of shows at TC.

  16. tela'smuff Says:

    thanks guys.

    interesting Gdad. i honestly haven’t followed the talk in regards to Further as i agree with Billy as far as feeling it’s a joke to go out with a fake JErry and create unimaginative music. your comments reflect what i figured to be the case as far as a money grab, and that’s a damn shame. kinda sounds like what Phish did at MSG. ;) haven’t heard what the deal is with the Terrapin Crossroads, that’s a shame.

  17. Gavinsdad Says:

    All in all so much of this stuff goes back to the deads hands off approach to their orgs financial (mis)management. Phish are lucky as hell they only got seriously scammed once. Their org is solidly built, obviously capitalist (see dry goods a la gd merch) and built to scale (see webcasting).

    I’m not being pissy…I, like others, would prefer to see PAF but while phil plays out his last however many years he’s gonna stack that cheddar and the Phil/bob combo brings a slightly wider swath of heads in the door.

    So it goes….

  18. garretc Says:

    @tela’s

    Hardly your main point, and I know I’m in the minority on this around here, but I would like to vehemently disagree with the statement that Furthur is creating “unimaginative music,” even if they are doing it with a Fake Jerry.

    To this kids ears Furthur jams go to places I’ve never heard the Dead go, and the collection of young guns in Chimenti, Russo, and to an extended JK really helps move GD-style jamming forward into new sounds and textures.

    But what do I know?

  19. garretc Says:

    Sorry, “to an extent JK,” not “extended”

  20. Mike in Austin Says:

    Shoreline 03′ Gin FTW. 5.x mile walk. Feet started to a little sore at the end.

    Gorgeous day here

  21. Mike in Austin Says:

    Oh, and I saw those Arsenal jobs GC. I shall not be baited. ;)

  22. Mike in Austin Says:

    Jabs, not jobs.

  23. Mr palmer Says:

    I would agree with Garret that Furthur’s music is far from unimaginative. I wouldnt go as far as saying it goes places the Dead never have. I think the reality is somewhere in the middle.

  24. Mike in Austin Says:

    But yeah, Arsenal sucks.

  25. tela'smuff Says:

    point taken, although from what i’ve heard, and i’ll admit that it’s not a ton of shows, but, what’ i’ve heard is slow, meandering, and a little boring. i’ve yet to be directed to a Further jam that has gone somewhere a Dead jam has, creatively speaking, but if i can be directed to one, i’ll for sure listen!
    and i just can’t get past that the band has added a guy who sounds just like Jerry. The name of the band, Further, seems to be hypocritical when they are holding onto the past with a Fake Jerry.

    Russo was unleashed in P&F. Bobby would not keep up with what those dudes just pulled off this weekend.
