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.

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”.)

[audio:http://phishthoughts.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/02/ph1997-12-02d2t01.mp3]

***

YEM” 11.28.97 I

12.30.19 (G.Lucas)

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

  6. SillyWilly Says:

    Those two albums AW posted are must-listens.

    You’ll wish you hadn’t lived your life that long without knowing about those albums.

  7. KWL Says:

    actually… now that i’ve gotten to hear a few tracks, i gotta say, this just isnt doing it for me. tempos way too slow.

  8. butter Says:

    holy smokes thats one hell of a Stash, send the search and rescue team

  9. Snigglebeach Says:

    Listening to tonights WSP stream. just hard to take this band seriously. Sound is not very well mixed. So heavy on the guitar. Crazy.

    These guys would be blown off the stage by the Mclovins. How are they even in the same discussions as phish?

  10. butter Says:

    on to Antelope

  11. SillyWilly Says:

    Yeah, todays Stash is probably what Atlas fathered Zeus to.

    Or what Paul Bunyan was spinning when he made the great lakes.

    Nigeria Afrobeat Special

    comp came out last year. had a fela track on it to sell more records but it’s the rest of the songs that make the album. collection of Nigerian bands influenced by the fela sound and incorporating afro beat styles into there music

    hot shit

  13. DukeOfLizards Says:

    @Kdubs

    Yeah, but once you get back to the tempo it’s pretty good stuff.

    Anyone got the link to the WSP stream? I’m curious.

    “These guys would be blown off the stage by the Mclovins. How are they even in the same discussions as phish?”

    classic. Panic is minor league compared to Phish.
