TTFF: Dreaming of Summer

7.22.13, Toronto (Jake Silco)

7.22.13, Toronto (Jake Silco)

Mike’s -> Simple” Clifford Ball 8.16.96 II

A historic chunk of Summertime Phish.



Reba” 8.2.03 Limestone, ME

A daytime, post-hiatus gem.



Sneakin’ Sally” 8.8.98 Columbia, MD

Quintessential Summer ’98 grooves here.



Disease -> Free” 6.26.95 I, SPAC, NY

Simply put, one of Phish most superbly executed  psychedelic odysseys.



Chalk Dust Torture” 8.31.12 II, Commerce City, CO

Some of Trey’s most blissful and cathartic playing of Summer ’12.



Light” SPAC, NY 7.5.13 II

This dense, virtuosic conversation kicked off Summer ’13 in earnest and is now my go-to version of the song.



Crosseyed and Painless” 7.10.13, Holmdel, NJ 

This jam has so much staying power—truly an all-timer.



Harry Hood” 7.22.97 II, Raleigh, NC

After an intense, power-packed set of Phish, the band encored with this sublime “Harry Hood.”



Rock and Roll -> Meatstick” 8.5.11, George, WA

A jam—especially in context—that caused ripples throughout the modern Phish universe.



Ghost” 8.15.98 II, Limestone, ME

The essential nugget of late-Summer ’98 Phish foreshadowed the shift to ambient jamming come the fall. This relatively under-the-radar “Ghost” sneaks into my personal top five.

    garretc, you’re a good fella. i’m kinda old school. i gave the whole situation a 5-day cool off period. completely baffled and flabbergasted at the whole thing. really sad and disturbing. that comment was a release. and meant to have pertinent layers. fans scour the internet for clues. search team using crowdsourcing to scour satellite images.


  11. Stoney Case Says:

    come on bob! i was going for full-on drive by absurdity. they always spell it minor!

  12. tela's_muff Says:

    thems some jams. Rock N Roll>Fire on the Mountain still resonates. shockwaves through my soul.

    hoping the Indio rumors are true. i’d pull trigger on HI, but Indio would be better for me, no doubt.

  13. bob dylan Says:

    c’mon stoney, you know i learned that shit from the best.

  17. little umbrellas Says:

    Put down the Kazoo and step into these jams.

    Thanks Miner.

  18. dorn76 Says:

    Ok read back wasn’t as therapeutic as I had hoped.

    So sorry Halcyon about your Dad. Good advice on expressing love and planning for the inevitable and the unexpected. Palmer, shit sorry about your friend.


  19. MiA Says:

    Sometimes when I get in a funk, the only solution is funk. Especially when standing with a bunch of funky people who smell kinda funky.

    At least that worked in ’97 and ’98.

    The blues don’t work that way for me. When I am feeling bluesy I don’t like the blues. It’s like bad homeopathy. Especially swampy blues. Like Alaska.

    I suggest a spin of that 12/3/97 Possum Jam. Twice if it doesn’t take the first time.
