    love the feeling of checking Miner in the morning and seeing a bunch of jams ive never heard before. i’m not even caught up on yesterdays TTFTs.

    my friends dont understand how i stillc ontinue to accrue an ever growing library of phish that i’ve never heard before.

    one day its going to run out which is really scary. luckily i’m working hard on destroying my memory cells so each relisten is almost as good as a first listen

    and a full beard with a jay hangin off his lip

  3. MiA Says:

    Nice. Great album.

    My favorite quote from “High Fidelity”

    I get by because of the people who make a special effort to shop here – mostly young men – who spend all their time looking for deleted Smith singles and original, not rereleased – underlined – Frank Zappa albums. Fetish properties are not unlike porn. I’d feel guilty taking their money, if I wasn’t… well… kinda one of them

  4. Robear Says:

    I have to say, even though the Leg 1 is lacking in ‘Destination Spots’, it’s chock full of classic sheds in shitty places. $$$ plus, great routing and plenty of time off to rejuvenate. Great if you were just a midwest or east coast kid, ‘On Tour’.

  5. lumpyhead Says:

    definitely one of my favorite movies, High fidelity.

  6. purplehumpbackwhale Says:

    robear any leg 1 for you? namely, AC or JB?

  7. poop goblin Says:

    a very wise man once told me Robear

    fine a girl that will flip your vinyl for you and marry her

  8. Robear Says:

    Purps, there’s a chance for JB>SPAC

    depends on #prancetojamratio

  9. MiA Says:

    “There’s a patience and beauty to Trey’s playing in some eras (see ’97 Hood) that is so hard to find nowadays.
    Such a completely different sound to his work.
    Warmer tone. Laid-back placement.”

    Well said. I like the tone too.

    Trey is so unconscious when playing this, it’s like it’s coming from his brain, and I forget he has to move his fingers to do this.

  10. MiA Says:

    Maybe it’s coming from his heart instead of his brain. Maybe that’s the difference.

  11. MiA Says:

    Dick: I guess it looks as if you’re reorganizing your records. What is this though? Chronological?
    Rob: No…
    Dick: Not alphabetical…
    Rob: Nope…
    Dick: What?
    Rob: Autobiographical.
    Dick: No fucking way.

  12. Robear Says:

    three ingredients make the difference between a great show, and an all-timer:

    Trey, Trey, and Trey.

    watch the UIC ‘Waves’. It’s not a mystery, or alchemy. It’s the front man, and where his head is at.

    We Love you Trey! Your fanbase is the definition of ‘Musical Success’. We’ve propelled you to fame, riches and fortunes by chasing the sound to all corners of the globe. Never a hit album or single, but you’ve all made it big time. Living better than Kings, because no one wants your throne or head, yet you have all the things money can buy.

    Just relax, you’re doing fine. It’s us same kids chasing now, that did since you really broke on the scene in ’92-’93. Just let it flow now, man. No games, no tricks, no politics. Just do your job, and melt faces. Your legacy is set. You’ve re-written the great Rock and Roll tradgedy with a happier, healthier ending.

    Relax, let it flow. We love you.

    That Ghost was one of the highlights of that southern lead up to the “Hampton Comes Alive” disappointment. Greenville was the real scorcher of that leg. Charlotte ’99 has always been one of my favorite shows. Vintage second set and a great Sally in the first. Great picks today, Miner.

  14. neemor Says:

    ^ that

  15. lumpyhead Says:

    I can tell you how I got from Deep Purple to Howie Wolf in just 25 moves.

  16. tela'smuff Says:

    after listening to the 5 versions of My Left Toe, Deer Creek’s version is clearly the closest they came to recreating the “studio” version, and if anything they made it better. the last version played on 10.9.99 is hard to separate from the jam in Ghost, but it’s there. anyway, i love the idea of MLT and wish they’d do more if it.

  17. Robear Says:

    Trey: “I don’t want to be known as a ‘Jam Band'”

    Robear: “Bro, you’re not. You’re known as the band that pushed musical boundaries to the edge of the abyss, looked over, and now live to tell about it”

  18. neemor Says:

    ^ that that was for the Relax, you’re doing fine post.
    Well said.
    It used to come from his heart for sure.
    Now the head gets in the way.
    But they still have the magic.
    See the SuperBall Soundcheck.
    Ego out, patience in.

    I’ll keep coming.

  19. Robear Says:

    for sure Neemor. did you watch the ‘Relix’ magazine interview, w/ Trey, Tomato and Skolnick?

    someone hug the guy.

    google the interview if you haven’t.

  20. tela'smuff Says:

    the midwest run is where it’s at for leg 1 this year. at least that’s my gut feeling, and selfish desire. but they’ll be hitting familiar sheds, a nice easy tour for the kids to hop on and hit 7 shows in a row.

  21. neemor Says:

    Google search initiated.

    And, yes. The man totally needs a hug.
    I volunteer.
    In my stead, I volunteer Mango who sees Treyzor on the streets of New York from time to time.
    Just do it.
    And tell him it’ll be okay.
    Just breathe, Red. Breathe.

  22. [Not Tom] Says:

    Re: Mad Men – they definitely captured a sense of what one’s mind goes through when experiencing that for the first time. The haphazard way which thoughts develop or appear – the wondering about one’s sense of self – the feeling of detachment from one’s body, etc.

    This combined with the divergent storytelling where they repeated the same timeline three times for three different stories made it a standout episode.

  23. MiA Says:

    I think Cincy to Blossom is going to be fantastic.

  24. alf Says:

    if any of you record collectors don’t have anyone better to leave your collections to once you move on to a better place, consider leaving them to your favorite resident alien in your will

  25. Robear Says:

    neems, you’re very intuitive. i want to hear your reaction to the interview. i may be reading the wrong message between the lines.
