TTFF: Highlights of Summer

Bill Graham Civic Auditorium (Michael Stein)


Light > Ghost” 7.1 II Alpine

One of the smoothest and most original segments of music from Leg One.



Undermind” 8.31 I Dick’s

The best first set closer ever?



Birds of a Feather” 6.15 II, AC

At the end of the summer, this “Birds” from the first night of AC, can still hang with any jam of the season.



Tweezer” 8.17 II, SF

A banger from Bill Graham.



Twist” 6.22 II, Cincy

Jesus Christ Super Twist. Never Forget.



Carini”  6.7 II, Worcester

The first jam of summer still sounds just as fresh as it did in June.



Piper” 8.18 II, SPAC

The “Piper” of the summer.



Sand > Roggae” 6.22 II, Cincy

A full-band funk jam in “Sand,” the likes of which we didn’t hear in the second half of summer.



Harry Hood” 8.15 II, Long Beach

This multi-tiered “Hood” punctuated a majestic opening night in Long Beach.

    Ah Herbie.

    I see your Herbie Chameleon Japan ’75 and raise you Germany ’74.

    I think Ben Stiller’s Doppelgänger is on the drums.

    I say holy freedom funk hot shit damn! Ok, while i creedily digest the next hour of the Herbie footage ive somehow been missing out on and looking for all this time, here is another personal hero of mine. a blind man whose seizues later took away one half of his bodies mussle control and he still performed on stage.

  4. MiA Says:

    Wow. Great link. Loved it LU.

  5. P.S.H.S. Says:

    wow, tree porn. lack of phish=weirdness. i cut down hundreds of trees every year, see some pretty weird/strange stuff. but don’t worry tree huggers, for every tree i cut down, i plant something to replace it. ive planted almost 1000 mums in the past two weeks, should cover me for the rest of the years’ chainsaw olympics.

    Loving this GA MSG talk.

    I forgot to mention. Anyone headed to SF needs to eat at spruce. I haven’t left a dinner that happy in a long time. Wait staff was phenomenal. Bartender came out to our table and asked my girl what she was in the mood for. Based on tryin to be refreshing vs sparking an appetite vs flavor. Really impressed. Fleur de lys the next night (Michelin rated) sucked in comparison. (Well the food was bomb) but decor and staff left something to be desired. However, I’m 99.9% sure Jamie Chung was the hostess at fleur. Bummer for her to have to do after being in movies but shit, tough economy.

  7. kayatosh Says:

    wow, awesome roalnd kirk footage. thank you. he’s one of my main heroes as well.

  8. bob dylan Says:

    That was supposed to be under the other name but those who know me know me.

    Kids don’t know about jambase? Didn’t they research miners old articles? Be sure to spell it minor. Still get email updates a few times a week from them.

  9. MiA Says:

    Awesome BD.

    Fleur de lys is the oldest looking place on the planet. Close to Union Square though.

    Great food, but really does look like they decorated the place in 1977 and haven’t changed it since.

    Had a good meal there.

  10. codeinesea Says:

    trey’s new song scabbard is fucking amazing, for those who haven’t heard it. really high hopes for new trey band and phish material. never thought trey would get back to writing at this level.

  11. codeinesea Says:

    kind of out of the loop wrt phish/trey since dick’s, sorry if this is old news to you guys. deserves repeating, i think.

  12. bob dylan Says:

    Ya I felt like I was in a circus tent. Needed an upgrade in my girl and my opinions.

    Pshs, a mum isn’t as good as a tree. Just sayin.

    They had redwood baby trees you could buy at big sur to plant at home. Thing was like 2 inches. So in about 1500 years it should be big like in Cali.

  13. littleumbrellas Says:

    Paul Jackson and Mike Clark are the guys you want on your team. Wow. Wont be the only time i watch that. Winner. ……. Herbie never touches the B3 does he? That would be a clobbering to witness.

  14. Mr. Palmer Says:

    Bobby D- you and the girly interested in hitting some Phil and Friends at the wellmont?

  15. kayatosh Says:

    oscar peterson get some:

  16. Mr. Palmer Says:

    just recently announced…

  17. Henry Says:

    Interesting that all 4 Dave’s Picks were from the 70’s and also 2 from the state of Virginia

  18. BingosBrother Says:

    Awesomest cake ever.

    Go Bears

  19. Mr. Palmer Says:

    looks like this particular show only circulates in a moderately decent Aud, at least on LMA. The remaster sbd will be nice to hear. ’76 is a great year IMO. Lots of hidden nuggets. If you have never heard 6/22/76, Crazy Fingers>Comes a Time, i would make a point to. Pure Garcia. 1st set also..

  20. Slicksasquatch Says:

    Hey now folks
    It’s been an exhausting couple of days north of the redwood curtain . Little Harrison Floyd arrived on the 28 . Happy healthy and alert. Momma is recovering well although quite sore still. My little water dragon took five hours to push out and it would have been quicker if the cord wasn’t around his lil neck.

    What’s new in phish universe? Any speculation on some winter dates or are they waiting for trey tour concludes.

    I’m sure it’s been said a hundred times ,but for the love of god get this band in a studio!

  21. BingosBrother Says:

    Word to that palmer. Have a shitty aud of that, but its somethin.

    1st name Little slick? Pretty cool. Congrats.

  22. xpun Says:

    congrats slick. glad everyone is doing well

  23. Slicksasquatch Says:

    First name is Harrison . We are calling Harry or Sonny. After the quiet Beatle, and Floyd is his great grampas name. We thought it had a nice ring to it.

    Good luck to all the other expecting parents on this board . Just remember nature finds a way. Everything is gonna be alright.

  24. xpun Says:

    congrats slick. glad everyone is doing well

  25. MiA Says:

    Congrats slick! So happy for you and the Mrs.

    Saw a great pic from Robear. Had to turn in the old phone and lost it. Bummer.
