Pre-Tour SBD Nuggets Emerge

12.31.09 (W.Rogell)

Yesterday, some choice soundboard selections have leaked from Phish’s vault onto the Internet. Hidden Track and YEMblog have been the messenger pigeons of great tidings on the cusp of tour, providing the community with some crispy goodness for the road this summer. Yesterday, YEMBlog unveiled a Pre-FM source of Kevin Shapiro’s “From the Archives” show from Bonnaroo last summer. Included in the first broadcast, offered in FLAC and mp3,  are such monumental musical moments as The Radio City “Ghost,” Big Cypress’ “After Midnight Reprise,” and The Fox Theatre “Tweezer” from November ’94. All in never before heard clarity – these three jams will get plenty of airtime this summer in cars and hotel rooms across the county. A track listing is below.

“From the Archives – Broadcast One” – 6.12.09 – Manchester, TN

1. Destiny Unbound (5/31/2009 @ Fenway Park, Boston, MA)
2. Born Under Punches (10/31/1996 @ The Omni, Atlanta, GA)
3. Sabotage (8/16/1998 @ The Lemonwheel, Limestone, ME)
4. Ghost (5/22/2000 @ Radio City Music Hall, New York, NY)
5. Lengthwise (11/19/1992 @ St. Michael’s, Colchester, VT)
6. Sneakin’ Sally (9/28/1999 @ Oak Mountain, Pelham, AL)
7. Tweezer (11/23/1994 @ Fox Theatre, St. Louis, MO)
8. Llama (10/18/1994 @ Vanderbilt University, Nashville, TN)
9. After Midnight (12/31/1999 @ Big Cypress)
10. Born to Run (7/16/1999 @ PNC Bank Arts Center, Holmdel, NJ)

And as if that wasn’t enough, hours later, Hidden Track posted a just-leaked  SBD of part one my personal favorite Phish2k sequences – Merriweather’s “Theme > Dog Log” from September 17th. 256 kbps mp3s of this this swanky segue were included as a recent promotion from Ticketfly for purchasing tickets for this summer’s Merriweather shows. The bittersweet detail to this “release” is the glaring absence of the transcendent ‘Rock and Roll” that opened the set and led into “Theme.” Most likely lopped off for liscencing purposes, the second two-thirds of this standout segment is still a treat. Hidden Track also noted:

Also of note is the album title in the tags associated with the file which reads “Past Summer Compilation (5/11/2010 v2)” and it’s listed as track 11 of 12. Hopefully we’ll get to hear the other 11 tracks soon!

Check out the original post for more details.

Big ups to Scotty B. and his crew for getting these  choice cuts out to the people!

    How’s it going BB?

  2. Prince Nabby Says:

    Hey BB-ers! How’s everyone doing? It seems like forever since I was last here.

    Question: has there been any discussion of the basic skinny on nTelos (Portsmouth) show wrt when lots will open, where good or bad locations in the venue might be? Thanks for whatever insight anyone can share or recollect others having shared!!!

  3. gavinsdad Says:

    got my tix m’fers. stoked.

  4. Andrew Says:

    Not sure Nabby, but those pictures posted from the link to a green board thread earlier have me stoked! GA taboot? Tasty….

  5. Prince Nabby Says:

    Thanks Andrew! Not a big Green Board fan, but I think I’ll shoot on over there and check out the pics!

  6. Selector J Says:

    Check the nTelos pics here from the green board.

    I don’t know how the lots are going to work or when they’re gonna open. Looking at google maps, there doesn’t seem to be nearly enough parking around the venue.

    901 Crawford Street
    Portsmouth, VA, United States

  7. Prince Nabby Says:

    Thanks Selector J. Those pictures have me majorly pumped up. My sense is tht there isn’t a bad spot in the venue, and truth to tell, after looking at the pics, I might shoot for front row seats rather than dance pit anyhow. There are a bunch of parking sites on a pdf you can download from the ntelos venue site. I’m pretty excited, lemme tell you!

  8. gavinsdad Says:

    Hershey roll call, late nite style (phils won, of course i’m up):

    ms mango
    luther just-ice

    anyone else should lump on that list. i know everyone wants to do their thing and all and we dont really have an official meetup per se but i suspect i’ll be at the back of that floor with some room to jig. anyone else have a better idea holler.

  9. Selector J Says:

    I’m with you, Nabby. The place looks unreal. I grew up in SE Virginia so this is like a homecoming for me, too. Get to see some old faces and some new Phish in a badass place.

    Plus, we have excellent babysitters lined up: Gramma and Grandpa.

  10. Prince Nabby Says:

    It doesn’t get much better than free (and guilt-free) babysitting, does it, Selecter. Honestly, I don’t think I’ve seen a sweeter looking venue.

    Gavinsdad: my girl and I will be at Hershey. We have assigned seats. I was so excited until I looked at pics of the venue and realize that this might be the only venue on the planet where GA is better than seating *sigh*

    Just got an email back from the scammer guy.
    My last email which I sent just out of curiosity since I already knew he was scamming:

    I’d really prefer paypal. It’s free to set up and protects us both. The other option is for me to send you a money order to your house.
    By the way, which tickets did you get? The white ones with the green letters and the bird or the blue and purple ones?

    Totally messing with him on the ticket designs. I have no idea what they look like. If he gave me an address, I thought it’d be funny to send him a letter saying, “You never sent me those tickets so I didn’t put the money order in here.” Would have been funny but this guy probably doesn’t have my sense of humor…

    His response:

    i got the blue and purple ones
    go on their website their and send it money in minutes. please go to a branch since online always has problems.
    im just at work right now so if you have any problems give me a text

    Please put the payment under my cousins name he has a account with them, his name is
    Phillip Wu (same address)

    Once you have made the payment ill need the payment info,
    can you text me the name of person who sent the payment and
    the mtcn #(a number western union gives you)?

    This brings me some solace as I like to think that even without googling the guy’s email and finding only rip off complaints as hits, this last bit would have raised enough red flags to put the “Hellz No” stamp on it. Unfortunately, I’m sure there are much brighter scammers out there.

    So I think “Chris” and my correspondence ends here. He’ll probably figure that ticket question outed him, if nothing else, but I sure don’t want to involve myself with this guy any more than I already have.

    “Got to be careful as I would say.”
    -some reggae song that I can’t place at this hour

    Memo to all: = career craigslist concert ticket scammer
    Don’t ever even think about wiring that guy money. I feel dumb enough for even considering it.

  12. Selector J Says:

    oops. really boffed up the tags in that last one… I think you get the idea. His email ends where the second block quote begins.

  13. Prince Nabby Says:

    Wow, Selecter, that sounds like a clusterfuck in the making . . .

  14. Selector J Says:

    yea apparently this guy is famous for concert ticket scamming on craigslist.
    I went to the ACL forum and there was already a post about it. And one of the responses was “Yea that’s the guy from ‘Toronto.’ He tries to pull that scam every year.”
    Kinda shocked that he’s so bad at this yet not in jail.

    Alright, folks. Caffeine is wearing off and it’s freaking late. Too much work to do before Phish!
    Goodnight all.
