A historic chunk of Summertime Phish.

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.

  11. BooVT Says:

    Driving home from hockey practice tonight, listening to Gone Phishing on Sirius Jam On, and my son nails the “Wilson” chant after the first two notes.

    Almost made me tear up a little….

    Of course, it’s all due to Russell Wilson and the Super Bowl, not his love for Phish, but I was still proud.

    3 months ’til Great Woods.

  12. phishm Says:

    That’s awesome Boo. Love it when the kids start to recognize the songs. I was listening to a stream one night and they were between songs. All of a sudden my daughter yells out Back on the Train even before they started it. Sure enough that was the song. She said she could tell by what Trey was strumming between songs. I was so proud.
