TTFW: Late ’90s Grab Bag

12.28.11 - MSG (Graham Lucas)

Runaway Jim” 7.31.97 II, Mountain View, CA

Jammed out “Jims” where have you gone?



Tweezer” 8.1.98 II, East Troy, WI

Can never get enough of the Alpine “Tweeze”…



Ghost” 7.3.97 II, Nuremburg, GR

Euro ’97 “Ghosts” were slow, funky and exploratory, as Phish honed their new jam vehicle before coming stateside.



Bathtub Gin” 10.1.99 I, Ames, IA

A first set smoker from the heartland in ’99. We came out to a smashed window and many things stolen from our car before the all-night drive to Minneapolis. Fuckin’ wooks…



Reba” 8.14.96 I, Hershey, PA

A stunning version from a Summer ’96.



Stash” 9.9.99 I, Vancouver, BC

A psychedelic trek from Fall ’99’s first set.



2001” 7.7.99 II, Charlotte, NC

One of ’99’s top versions.



Mike’s Song” 12.2.97 II, Philadelphia, PA

This version needs no introduction—funk warfare.



Piper > Guy Forget” 10.1.00 II, Phoenix, AZ

The first bust-out of “Guy Forget” after being a piece of soundcheck lore for years.



Weekapaug Groove” 4.3.98 I, Uniondale, NY

My favorite “Weekapaug” to date.

    ^ not sure how they would pull off the whole reverse bass beat part though

    European Financials hit six month lows. 12 down days in a row. Gold is surging. Feels like March 2008 again. Lots of uncertainty.

    US Dollar is strengthening.

    Philly Fed missed print significantly.

    Phlorida: it’s a self-portrait in oil by the late genius gregory gillespie.

    What up all… Been away in work hell for a long time. Good to have a chance to see what’s up, looks like I got some listening to do.

    Getting excited for couch ter… And the Beasties tribute. 46 Days -> Funky Boss or Moma -> Sabrosa. Sickness.

  9. voopa Says:

    Moma -> Sabrosa


  10. snowbank Says:

    Is moma -> sarosa a mimosa? more like a 40oz huh

    RIP Donna Summer – We rocked some Donna Summer on the bus to and fro Bethel. That local radio station had the post show tunes on the friday night.

    We people making runs on the bank in Greece, I figured the dow would be taking a bigger hit. maybe people taking worthless money out of worthless banks doesn’t mean much?

  11. kayatosh Says:

    greek bank run is old news. and news doesn’t move the mrkt, fear and greed does. technical levels (price) determine where the fear or greed kick in.

    last dance for donna summer
