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.

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.

  9. little umbrellas Says:

    So JeromeG, this archive link 5/14/74… is the Dave’s Picks Vol9 release supposed to sound better than this?

    Vapey,

    anyone have dibs on your night 2 Mann Pit ticket? That first show may wipe you right out.

  11. MiA Says:

    The best Slaves are always the ones to close the set after a massive jam that leaves tears streaming down your cheeks.

    I blubbered and cried like a baby during the Coventry Slave. Everyone was. There wasn’t a dry eye in the place.

    Powerful

    Not really enough for a place in the all-timer conversation, but last yeast’s BGCA Slave was pristine.

    Coulda heard a pin drop when they dropped into the jam.

  21. Jerome Garcia Says:

    Not sure teeny b but I’m sure there is a modicum of upgrades. Can’t dl those archive.org SBD shows unless you cats know of a work around…

  22. MiA Says:
