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.

  19. little umbrellas Says:

    BB Providith.

    -Check the Playin from this show. Probably my favorite type of music that the band touched on. Scarlet>Roses was fine too. Cool to hear an early 70’s style Dead jam in a Scarlet.

    bout to get to this Dark Star. Row row row.

  20. jtran Says:

    whatever the live phish album is called, the slave from 94 on that from orpheum 94 is tops for me.

  21. sumodie Says:

    DP09 sound quality is fanfuckintastic; great instrument separation, clarity, warm vibrant tones

    Havent heard the original sbd tho

    I wish Phish Inc continued with those custy remasters that they released back in 2010. Sure, it’s taxing the fan twice, but the improved sound quality was worth it (Manchester, Greek2 & 3, AC2 are the remastered shows I know well)

  22. Thomas Says:

    this show has the BEST. PROMISED LAND. EVER!

  23. MiA Says:

    11/2/98 Disease = straight pure fire. Just really stunning. So often overlooked by “the cover” but 9:22 of gorgeous pure Disease.


  24. Jerome Garcia Says:

    A Live One jtran. Orpheum ’94 Slave:

  25. MiA Says:

    Kinda would pay $$$ for the SBD of the 11/2/98 show. Please take my money.
