    Palmer- I wasn’t there, but that show is a favorite of mine.

  2. gus Says:

    actually, I was comparing the Vultures to every other version of vultures i have on my computer and it’s in a different key

  3. beepaphone Says:

    So much for there being any football on this weekend

  4. chefbradford Says:

    Wasn’t Vultures reworked in 98?

  5. voopa Says:

    gus, what source?

  6. BrandonKayda Says:

    Gus –

    Either you and me have the same copy, or it is supposed to sound that way, because my copy of 12-13-97 sounds slowed down too. Especially on Weekapaug and Sample

  7. BrandonKayda Says:

    Trey’s voice sounds very strange too, almost like it isn’t him singing

  8. halcyon Says:

    @ Lycan….thanks for the radiohead links….one of my favorite bands for sure. BTW….I am going to send you an email later this week so keep an eye out for it.

    The Vultures from Hartford ’00 was the perfect mix of vocals, to me.
    The ‘go-to’ version.

    Esther’s lyrics are awesome, I haven’t read them through in a long time.
    I guess I figured with Trey re-learning them again, I should, too.

    Phish

    Esther

    It was late one fall night at a fairground near town
    When Esther first saw the Armenian man
    Who groveled toward her and stood by her side
    With a bucket that swung in his hand

    His grin stretched the folds of his pasty white cheeks
    And his lips hurled a dollop of murk on the curb
    And the lights from the rides showed a mischievous sparkle
    That flashed in his hollow eyed stare

    He said “Little girl, you can chop off my legs
    And then peel off my socks if you want to.
    But I’d rather you took this old puppet from me
    That I hold in my pail as we speak.”

    And he stood looking down at the innocent girl
    And she stared at the bucket bewildered
    Til he lifted the doll for the young girl to see
    And a giant smile grew on his face
    She saw the doll’s eyes and she couldn’t resist
    And she thanked the man quickly and ran to the church
    And she burst through the door with puppet held high
    And a hush filled the chapel, and the people looked mean

    Esther tried in vain to pacify the mob
    Quibble grew to spat, to wrangle, then to brawl
    The frenzied congregation struggled desperately to fetch
    The pretty puppet snugly nestled deep in Esther’s leather sack
    Through the window of the church a storm began to rage
    And Esther knew the time had come to flee

    She scurried down the aisle toward the doorway in the distance
    And out into the rainstorm where she felt she would be free
    But the wind was blowing harder
    And her skirt began to billow
    Until finally her feet began to lift

    And she rose above the people and the houses
    and the chimneys
    And Esther and the doll were set adrift
    Floating higher over the hills, and the valleys and treetops
    they’d flutter and glide
    Soaring and turning suspended on air
    With the earth far below them they’d tumble
    And dive through the clouds

    And she began to plummet earthward till she
    Landed in the nasty part of town

    She glanced about the village sure to find the evil men
    Who rob and pillage in the darkest hour of night
    Nervously she fumbled for the pouch that held the
    Puppet on her rump.

    Feeling quite outnumbered Esther hid behind
    A nearby pile of lumber, where she waited
    Till the dawn
    Cause it would have been a blunder to
    Succumb to a hoodlum on the prowl

    When the morning came, she wandered through the streets
    Along the chilly lake that lay beside the town
    At last a peaceful moment, but she thought she heard a sound
    It was an angry mob of joggers coming up to knock her down

    As Esther stood and shook her head
    The joggers were approaching
    And she knew she had no choice left but to swim
    As the frosty water sank its bitter teeth into her hide
    She tried to slide the heavy clothing from her skin

    Naked now she made her way toward the shore
    When suddenly she felt a tiny tugging at her toe.
    And the puppet she’d forgotten wrapped its tiny
    Little arms around her ankle and wouldn’t let her go.

    The waves seemed to open and swallow her whole
    As the doll pulled her down through the eerie green deep
    And the sound of the laughing old man filled her ears
    As she drifted away to a tranquil
    And motionless sleep.

    She Died. She’s Dead. llfa

    “Noise Maker Man during Swept Away > Steep… Holy STFU!

    Towards the end, if you listen closely, you can hear him gurgling ‘help’ in my time-travelling mental sleeper hold.”

    Selector J attempting to get me to spit take coffee on my computer’s screen.
    And succeeding.
    New ‘in’ tee shirt idea:
    “My Computer Hates Selector J”

    “neemor owes me a new monitor”

  12. gus Says:

    I’m not sure what source I have of the show, i got it a while ago, but yeah, it doesn’t sound like trey singing it for a lot of it. it just sounds a lot lower. but in other parts it does.

    I’d buy one.
    😉

  14. chefbradford Says:

    Ok, I guess I’m gonna check out MY copy of 12/13/97 now, too

  15. neemor Says:

    “Chris is a space traveler… ”

    Possibly the coolest description of someone I’ve heard.
    Good one.

  16. gus Says:

    The harry hood of that show is what caught me, it’s most definitely WAY slower than usual

  17. neemor Says:

    “frankie,
    i was going to post the exact same thing to you. i heard the tweezer again and said this was the jam id been wanting! cheers! i started the ghost and already knew tweezer was top on my chart over ghost.”

    I thought to myself, that’s funny…I get that feeling every time I hear Ghost live…like, this isn’t starting off so well, but it’ll get going, always does.
    I bet Mitch will take it back when it starts to heat up!

    Two posts later:
    “take that back, this ghost is heating up. lets see where this goes…”

    I had it pinned!

  18. halcyon Says:

    12/30 Sand was bad ass.

  19. BrandonKayda Says:

    I was watching a video of that Miami Train yesterday…some serious shit

    I know I know, I have talked that fucking song to death. But seeing what Chris Kuroda was doing on top of that takes it to a whole nother’ level.

    Those new lights he’s put in, the ones that are small dots that illuminate the crowd/band and twirl around (resemble the Joy cover)….those things can make me feel intoxicated sitting here perfectly sober.

  20. yematt Says:

    Hey guys, just checked in… I had a copy of the 12-13-97 show, and I always noticed that it was slower/vocals sounded weird. I eventually decided to grab a copy from the audio archive on here and it turns the (now old) copy that I had just had a weird mix. Probably something to do with the cassette that it was transferred from, but the source from here sounds as it should. Just a heads up.

  21. chefbradford Says:

    Quietest night on the BB I’ve seen in awhile

  22. yematt Says:

    Just gotta wait til’ we all go back to work tmw for the flow of posts to come.

    I think I remember reading a while back ago that some of you weren’t really interested with the joy box posters… I really liked some of them and I am interested to know if anyone wants to sell a select few to me? I’ll re-post this tmw…

  23. chefbradford Says:

    yematt- I have the Joy Box, haven’t even opened the posters. Reason being, the way my life is, I move frequently, and pretty much every poster/painting/piece of hung art that I’ve cared about has either disappeared or been destroyed in the moves (consider: I’ve lived in the same town for ten years)

    However, If I decide I don’t want/need/can’t live without them, I’d be happy to let you know first

  24. halcyon Says:

    @ Mr C…if you are lurking or pop back on here…Thanks for the Winterland Mix…I like it so much that I am going to get the box set later this week. Thanks again.

    Have a great Sunday night everyone.

  25. yematt Says:

    excellent, thanks chef! i gotta blank space where my art should be
