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.

    I take that as quite a compliment, being a Phish fan and all. Never bothers me when somebody doesn’t like what I do. Sorry to offend.
