Ten For Tuesday

Bethel Woods (Michael Mesenbourg)

Mike’s Song -> Breathe Jam ” 10.25.95 II, St.Paul, MN

A relic from the day when “Mike’s Song” had jams. In this Fall ’95 incarnation, Trey annihilates the opening segment moving to his mini kit as the band moves further and further into experimental territory. Slipping into abstraction, they pass smoothly into an instrumental interpretation of Pink Floyd’s “Breathe.”



Simple > McGrupp” 10.26.96 II, Charlotte, NC

This is but one of many standout “Simples” along the road of Fall ’96, and served as the centerpiece of Charlotte’s Fall ’96 stop.



Weekapaug -> Mango Song” 11.25.94 II, Chicago, IL

Concluding our patchwork “Mike’s Groove,” here is the unique segue and song pairing that followed “Harpua” at UIC in Fall ’94.



My Left Toe -> Whipping Post” 7.25.99 II, Noblesville, IN

In a stunning piece of first-set improvisation, Phish built their abstract Summer ’99 vehicle into a legit take on the Allman’s classic. This jam came out of nowhere at the beginning of the show at Deer Creek, foreshadowing one of Summer ’99’s best outings.



Tweezer -> Makisupa” 10.22.95 II, Champaign, IL

Another buck-wild, Fall ’95 throwdown to follow up yesterday’s “Tweezer” from the same tour.



Stash” 12.5.97 II, Cleveland, OH

Behind the dance-party funk of Fall, “Stash” made a huge splash every time it dropped. Here is the second set opener of the consistently underrated show from Cleveland State. Though this version doesn’t stray too far from structure, it absolutely slays from start to finish.

    Garretc – have u been shut out? You sound like you got shut out and as far as I know you’re not shut out until some nite in mid August. Get to work bud.

    El dude where you at motherfucker? I am DEEP into the first disc of the ABB dreams box set and just like back in the early 90s this music is delivering the goods. This allman joys and hourglass and second coming etc is just beautiful roots music.

    In New York, was out for a stroll and came upon the Time Magazine 100 Most Influential People red carpet. Totally funny! Saw Barbara Walters, Chelsea Handler, Tyra Banks, Jeremy Lin, Tim Tebow, Amy Poehler, Aziz Ansari, Bryant Gumble, Tilda Swinton, Arianna Huffington, Victor Cruz and some other people who I did not recognize. Hysterical!

    Not sure if this has been mentioned today, but you guys should really check out the new Jack White album that came out today… “Blunderbuss”

    It’s a great mix of White Stripes-esque guitar rock and Americana folk.

    I hope everyone got their Leg 2 holds! See you guys in the Midwest this summer!
