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.

  14. vapebraham Says:

    Bangor Golden Age — $$$. pure silk. trey funk riffing, back o the worm style. page weaving, dancing, anch. fish and gordo keeping it light and chunky, steady rolling. never lags. interesting throughout.

    one of several summer ’13 jams i favor over tahoe tweez.

  15. Stoney Case Says:

    not sure what I find more strange:

    the fact that the Grateful Dead allowed Donna to stand there and sing with them for so long.

    the fact that Donna was willing to stand around for so long and only sing a few lines.

    that’s some liberal democracy right there. afraid to do the right thing for fear of hurting feelings.

  16. BingosBrother Says:

    You serious Clark?

  17. BingosBrother Says:

    More like Jerrys paralyzing fear of being a leader. And Bobbys main side piece. And Keiths stash.

  18. garretcorncob Says:

    Just reached into my pocket at work and realized I have a ziplock with tree crumbs in there. Whoops. Good thing it doesn’t smell.

    Got the news a couple days ago that the SLF and I are getting a puppy middle of May. Knew we were getting one either then or end of June, but still exciting.

  19. Stoney Case Says:

    that’s what i was getting at. Jerry’s fear of being a leader. the rest wanting to follow jerry on some level. guessing phil had thoughts he was too polite to express. I mean, he’s the one with the classically trained ear. and donna jean was classically……bad.

  20. vapebraham Says:

    there is so little that is redeeming about donna in the gd that it is indeed astounding that she was in the band for 4 years. that. wombat. got to have that.

    “bobby’s main side piece’

    ^^^ I am unfamiliar with this. do tell.

  21. garretcorncob Says:

    Well you see, Vape, Donna was Bobby’s side piece. The main one.

  22. Stoney Case Says:

    have to say, never really understood serious stress until the ex moved back east, turning my two kids lives upside down. it’s killing me slowly. toward her, it’s really good riddance. the effect on the kids has been unbearable

  23. vapebraham Says:

    alright. now i’m picking it up. (little slow today). at first, I thought bobby had an image of donna j tattooed on the side of his body.
