Ten Tunes For Friday

12.31.09 (W.Rogell)

Welcome back to Friday, and these ten tunes focus, specifically, on summer tours past. With a couple months separating us from Summer 2010, I figured we’d take a trip down memory lane. Please choose to either download the selections OR stream them to minimize bandwidth cost. Thanks, and have a great weekend!

Reba” 8.2.03 I

A brilliant highlight from IT’s first set. There’s nothing like an afternoon, festival-sized “Reba” jam.

Tweezer” 7.25.98 II

A Summer ’98 classic featuring larger-than-life, bulbous dance grooves.

Drowned > Chalkdust Reprise” 7.11.00 I

Flooding over from yesterday’s “Drowned” post, here we have “the Phish from Vermont” indulging in musical-comedy, best blending this jam into the old-school, anthemic, “Chalkdust Reprise.”

Split Open and Melt” 6.11.94 II

A concise, power-packed version from Red Rocks ’94. A perfect example of musical density.

Stash” 7.22.93 I

An old-school shred-fest for Big Red under a deluge at Stowe, VT during Summer ’93. On stage Trey remarked that the stage crew was talking about canceling the show due to possible electrocution. His response? “I told ’em Fuck that. Put the plug up my ass and count out Llama!”

Disease > Free” 6.26.95 II

A personal favorite, and a deep dive into Summer ’95 psychedelia.

Scent of a Mule” 8.17.97 III

Oh no, the quintessential set-killer! Think again, this is Limestone, Maine, and in final set of The Great Went, “Scent of a Mule” became an ethereal launchpad. Out of the usual “Mule Duel” segment, the band decided to play as the spirit moved, drifting into an beautiful and experimental segment of music. The band delicately passed through the “Mind Left Body” theme and a digital delay jam before awkwardly crashing back into Gordon’s speedgrass.

Demand > Antelope” 6.24.94 II

This smoking experimental “Antelope” hails from the intimate confines of The Murat Theatre, circa ’94; a magnificent, multi-faceted piece of music.

    Chinese food and cats…hmmm

  3. Willowed Says:

    I agree Mitch.
    Try jumping on the moo goo gai pan. The one great thing about Chineese is that you can switch it up.
    Sometime I feel obligated to switch it up!

  4. Spasm Waiter Says:

    Not sure if anyone posted this but this is a leaked new stones re-recording (apparently w/ Mick Taylor) of an old unreleased tune. I don’t know too much more. Great song though…

  9. KWL Says:

    I love sitting outside, looking across the valley floor to the mountains on the other side, 75 miles away, and seeing the storm clouds rage over there while these here mountains are engulfed in beautiful sunny skies.

    all while sipping a great divide IPA.

    and hitting shuffle on the ipod to hear winterland 77 cassidy pop up first.

    perfection.

    cheers neemor, and cheers blackboard.

  10. Willowed Says:

  11. KWL Says:

    @garret, keep trying my friend. university administrations are full of BS, no matter where you are (no offense willowed)

    @Mrs Weaver, still sending positive vibes your way! at least your husband can draw straight lines by hand 😉

  25. KWL Says:
