Ten Tunes For Friday: Fall ’97

7.31.09 (Graham Lucas)

Continuing our Friday focus on one era in particular, today we turn to Fall ’97. I tried to assemble a playlist without going for many of the big guns, but some slipped through the cracks. Happy Friday!


Stash” 11.13.97 II

The opener of the second set of tour in Las Vegas, and a piece that illustrates that Fall ’97 contained far more that funk grooves.



11.19.09 (J.Tortorice)

Antelope” 12.6.97 I

And then on the other hand, Phish could throw funk jams into just about any song at any time, as illustrated by this “Antelope” from Auburn Hills.



Twist > Slave” 11.14.97

This is the second half of Phish’s first four-song set of Fall.



6.16.09 (B.Kisida)

Tweezer” 12.12.97 I

The final “Tweezer” of tour from Albany, New York.



Bathtub Gin > Llama” 11.19.97 I

A dark-horse fall highlight from Champaign, Illinois.



2001” 11.19.97 II

6.27.10 (G.Lucas)

My personal favorite version from 1997.



Mike’s Song” 12.2.97 II

A monster version from that kicked of the second set at The Spectrum, (but still no second jam due to “Simple”.)



YEM” 11.28.97 I

12.30.19 (G.Lucas)

A classic, “Crosseyed”-laced version, that never gets old.

  2. Mr. Palmer Says:

    you like that performance last night @ guyute711? Johnnies are tough at msg. Watch out BE tournament. peaking at the right time i hope. Nothing better than watching Calhoun twist in the wind while his players get embarrassed on the court.

  3. Guyute711 Says:

    That was a thrashing Mr P. Need the Orange to start playing like that. Geez, Never thought I would want Cuse to be more like St Johns

  4. phoammhead Says:

    wsp played fire on the mountain last night in 2nd set

    i listened to 1st set

    anybody catch that fire in 2nd set?

  5. Mr. Palmer Says:

    missed it phoam. I’m sure it will be up on bt.etree or ‘noid soon. Didn’t see that though. I was 1st set and done myself last night.

  6. willowed Says:

    I know what you’re talking about. What is that?

    is it an old 70’s tune? It’s very familiar
    Is it a TV show theme.

    I can’t place it

  7. willowed Says:

    Is it an opera tune or some sort of mozart dilio.?
    It’s driving me crzy.

    Curse you TIII

    It sounds like it’s from Phantom of the Opera or some shit.

  8. willowed Says:

    I figured it out, It’s matchbox 20 😉

  9. EL Duderino Says:

    The ‘noid is acting very strange this morning…

    only 37 torrents for gd, ABB, Ph, WSP and others…

    very strange

  10. Type III Jamming Personality Disorder Says:

    sorry about that, willowed…
    but I’d rather have a partner in my “misery” 😆 🙄

    yeah, I couldn’t even get on there this morning. strange things are afoot at the demon k

  12. EL Duderino Says:

    @ Robear

    looks very professional !!!

  13. Admiral Ackbar Says:


    Sounds like a variation on the “Throne Room Theme” from A New Hope.

    Of course, I would think that.

  14. Robear Says:

    ’97 = Way Too Jammy!!!

    now that your appetite has been thusly wetted:


  15. fat bastard Says:

  16. fat bastard Says:

  17. Robear Says:

  21. Robear Says:

    TIII and others:

    don’t know if you saw this. Steve Kimock jammed a song with Greensky Bluegrass on the jam cruise:


    the track is ‘King of the Hill’

  22. EL Duderino Says:

    noob… that’s me a custy noob 😉

  23. Type III Jamming Personality Disorder Says:

    ha ha @dude just giving you shit

    is there a place to listen to that without buying it first? I clicked through to nugs.net and I got the tuning intro before the sample cut off. not very helpful! 😐

  24. Mr. Palmer Says:

    el dude- is your suggestion to steer clear of the ‘noid for a bit?

  25. fat bastard Says:

    last FOTM by panic was 10/2/88. thats a long time
