8.17.12 – Bill Graham (Graham Lucas)

 All text and selections by Ryan Ciriello

Funky Bitch > Jam > Yerushalayim Shel Zahav” 11.22.94, Columbia, MO

An under-the-radar sequence of Fall 1994, this one spans the full spectrum of ’94 Phish. You can almost feel the energy in the room when the band reaches near silence at a few points during the “Jam.”

Light” 10.19.10 II, Augusta, ME

Fall 2010 was full of stellar versions of “Light.” The highlight of a solid second set, this one gets my vote for tops of Fall 2010.

Antelope -> 2001” 8.11.04 II, Mansfield, MA

This unfinished “Antelope” melts into an infectious “2001” and is one of the few highlights from the last run of 2004 that still has replay value today.

Seven Below > Ghost”  11.28.09 II, Albany, NY

The jam many consider to be the unofficial re-birth of 3.0—over 50 minutes of pure Phish.

Halley’s Comet” 12.7.99 II, Portland, ME

Pure December 1999 Phish. Too bad they don’t make “Halley’s” today like they used to.

Rock and Roll” 6.7.11 II, Mansfield, MA

One of the only highlights of yet another underwhelming Great Woods visit, this “Rock and Roll” contains a full-band effort at some truly heartfelt music.

Simple” 11.18.96 II, Memphis, TN

Speaking of heartfelt music, this “Simple” jam initially finds some tranquil space before Trey leads the troops into an emotional peak.

Bathtub Gin 8.13.93 II, Indianapolis, IN

The Murat “Gin” doesn’t need too much of an introduction…this is August ’93 at its absolute finest.

Tweezer” 11.23.94 II, St Louis, MO

While 1994 had its share of monster “Tweezers,” this one may be the most blissful of them all.

Twist” 6.20.04 II, Saratoga Springs, NY

On a weekend full of top tier 2004 Phish, this “Twist” contains patience, communication, and whole-band offerings we can all enjoy.

  5. Mr. Palmer Says:

    Never got an email from ptbm…anyone else not get one?

  6. DryIceFactory Says:

    Hit stands tix for my 2 nights in Chicago and landed my GA for Bangor. 3 for 3 on the request. Light summer tour for me. Hoping for a blown out fall tour at all the northeast sheds of lore. Fingers crossed.

    As for the picks, nice. I was actually listening to Fall ’94 yesterday and hit up the following playlist. 11/22 B*tch, 11/23 Tweez, 11/26 Bowie, 11/28 Tweez, 11/30 Fixin to Die etc., 12/1 Split. Made for a wicked Wednesday. After I hit my lottos I just decided to spin the best Ghosts of all-time to celebrate.

    Absolutely love the C to the 4th Halley’s. Easily makes my top 20 all-time list.

    Time to start a new topic. Yesterday, my buddies and I were discussing the 3 best Ghosts of all-time. It’s gotta be 7/23/97, 11/17/97 and 5/22/00, right?

  7. MiA Says:

    I am buying every ticket I can…

  8. MiA Says:

    Hard not to toss Prague in there somewhere

  9. Mr. Palmer Says:

    Iginla to the Penguins….Wow. That team is loaded. Spaz is happy.

  10. xpun Says:

    I’ve heard so many good ghosts on @lawnmemos site I can’t keep them all straight. Prague is def up there. There’s a great vid of it on YouTube. Trey looks demonic dong the absolute shred section.

  11. xpun Says:

    @mia and Palmer. I emailed you guys last night. If you’re interested.

  12. angryjoggerz Says:

    Palmer – I got nothing. I also never got confirmation emails on either I submitted, though I def got the window on each saying I had submitted, so who knows? No cc holds either so I guess I did not actually order – into the ether.

  13. Mr. Palmer Says:

    AJ- I got a hold, so I don’t know what the deal is. I emailed someone @musictoday to see whats up.

  14. Mr. Palmer Says:

    Got it xpun.. Thanks.

  15. BingosBrother Says:

    This halleys is the best.

  16. gavinsdad Says:

  17. HeadyBrosevelt Says:

    dif- it is hard to pick top three ghosts- it is one of those songs that has a mind blowing number of amazing versions- currently my three favorite are 11/17/97, 7/2/98, and 5/22/00- with 7/2/98 being my personal favorite- the ending is so beautiful… good luck today, kiddos.

    nice picks today- solid simple.

  18. gavinsdad Says:

  19. angryjoggerz Says:

  22. HeadyBrosevelt Says:

    in my opinion, christiana ghost over prague… saying that, they are both totally ridiculous…

  23. gavinsdad Says:

  24. Ryan C Says:

    Thanks for the kind words. I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as I enjoyed putting it together.

    Good luck today and tomorrow; see you all this summer!

  25. Kaveh Says:

    Morning BBers!

    @Ryan: thanks for the tunes and writeUp…love the reader’s choice. Can’t get enough of that Halley’s…blazed it last night when I got home…when I was blazed. 🙂

    OK…who needs help today and with what? I’ll need Tahoe help later today.
